Have you ever had one of those blah days… where you just don’t feel like your normal “go-getter” self?
Due to some frustrating circumstances (nothing serious, the last thing I am trying to do is complain here!), I became really overwhelmed and at a loss out of nowhere this morning. It’s probably just girl hormones running wild, but they sure did a number on me this time…. sneaky little guys.
Since I clearly wasn’t getting much work done, I took a break from it and cleaned up around the house a little. Cleaning is really therapeutic for me. I got through a couple of loads of laundry and cleaned out more of our closets in the process.
I swear, both Scott and I are shoe and t-shirt hoarders in denial. It’s horrible.
I originally planned to make up a workout over lunch, but you know… the creative juices weren’t really flowing today. Instead, I took it extremely easy and found a new yoga video to stream on YouTube.
Have you ever heard of Yoga with Adriene? I simply searched “yoga workout” and found her right away. I scrolled through a lot of her videos and found one called Yoga For Weight Loss: Strengthen and Lengthen that sounded perfect.
It was very beginner and low intensity, which is actually what I was looking for this time. Usually I’m all about power moves and flows, but today I wanted to concentrate on breathing, stretching, and getting over whatever was stressing me out.
It was just over 40 minutes long and left me feeling a lot more relaxed. Ahhh, much better. When in doubt, downward dog it out.
That’s what I always say!
I’ll have to tune in to her channel to check out some of her more challenging videos for the future. What are some of your favorite YouTube channels for yoga workouts?
Lunch was super simple today! I am in the very first day of a three day raw foods and juices cleanse with Urban Remedy.
I had the Cauliflower Tabbouleh Salad for lunch and will be sure to share a full review of how it goes with you next week!
All right. Now I’ve got some work to do. Anddd it’s taking every ounce of will power not to grab a cup of coffee right now, since I didn’t have my normal cup this morning. See you tomorrow!
Questions of the Afternoon
• Have you ever completed a juice and/or raw foods cleanse before?
• If so… did you stay one hundred percent dedicated?
• If so… HOW did you give up coffee?
Before I go, I just wanted to say thank you so much for following this crazy blogging journey of mine, even on those not-so normal days. I really do love and appreciate you guys! Always. <3
