- Sign up for at least one active event per month (fostering a stronger connection to my body).
- Properly plant and properly care for at least two vegetable plants in my community garden plot (strengthening my connection to the Earth).
- Find time to meditate and/or do yoga for at least 15 minutes once a week (connecting with my body and spirit).
For #2, I did buy two plants (broccoli and cabbage) but I never planted them. They seem to be doing OK in their little, plastic pots out on the front porch, though, so I guess there's that. I really do need to get them in a much bigger pot and throw fertilizer at them as well. Next weekend.
For #3, I was doing really well until this past week when I missed my 7:00 am spin and yoga class. I missed it because of changes in my weekday morning schedule that didn't get me out of the house in time and I'm not sure if I can adapt to fit it back in or not. I am looking forward to getting back into my Monday night Gentle Yoga class at the start of the next 8-week session (not this Monday but the next) and I know I can use that time to connect and reintegrate.
In short, some things are going well and others are not. I really do feel that I'm making a good go at living an active lifestyle although there's definitely lots of room to improve. While I continue to be frustrated by my emotional eating, at least I'm adding more vegetables to my diet and that can't be a bad thing.
I don't know what else to say so I'll close. Add your thoughts to the Comments or an email.
