A Little of This; A Little of That
Since I began my 30-Day, :30 minimum movement challenge, I've found myself taking care of myself even better than usual. I've upped my food program, eating more salads and making green (and other color) juices. I've found myself making and using body scrubs again. I'm using essential oils when working with clients.
So, what got me started?
I've been with my teacher for over 25 years. I love what we do in class and the class energy and support. I love refining what we do yet, I found myself not doing much out of class. I was doing even less since getting married.
After getting married, I stopped going out walking; I stopped preparing raw foods and not only that, we were going out and eating more. When we went out for buffet, my mind told me I had to be sure to get our money's worth so, I'd overeat and, go against wisdom and eat other than is healthy for me.
It's been 7 years and 25-30 pounds added weight!
Lucky for me, my husband began working with Hoopnotica. One day he brought home one of their hoops and 4 dvd's. That got me going! Plus! My mother-in-law was here from Denmark and SHE wanted to get into hooping! (It was so cute seeing her out in the early morning spinning that hoop!)
Looking at the dvd's and scouring YouTube, I decided to at least learn the basics and that was waist hooping. Now, I don't know about you yet, when I was younger, I could NOT keep that hoop up! Since then, Hoopnotica and others ~ including myself ~ have created "adult-sized" hoops! Hooping is now FUN!
Did you know that you can burn about 400-600 calories an hour playing with hoops????
So, here's my point. I found something that is FUN to do! I even took Hoopnotica's Teacher Training and learned even more and refined some things I was already doing!
Finding something fun to do has gotten me doing more of the things my teacher has taught, especially with clubs and kettlebells.
Finding something fun to do has upped my food program.
Finding something fun to do has gotten me to make my own sugar scrubs which all lead to daily/better, self-care.
What could be better than that?
