A Little Too Pin Happy (Pinterest)

I created a pinterest account last week.  1,000+ pins and 21 boards later and I’m currently looking for a rehab center. Know a fancy center with no pins in sight? I am having way too much fun creating a pinterest world. My house is getting cozy, my kitchen is well stocked, my walk-in closet holds beautiful clothes, and I have a pretty impressive workout routine down. Some boards I’m thinking of adding are: a boyfriend board – the wedding is already planned, a closet for him – he will be very well dressed, a baby board, and a DIY board – for the extension we are going add outback.

Yoga poses and sequences:

  • Make sure you warm up your muscles before starting, stretching ‘cold’ muscles can cause injury
  • Hydrate especially of you are doing hot yoga
  • Eat a snack or a meal 1 hour before you start, but make sure you are not full while practicing
  • Be aware of how it feels and if some moves are too painful

Random Thoughts on The Treadmill

I have been working out a lot more recently as part of my Good Habits Challenge and 2013 fitness goals. I usually follow along to a work-out video or follow the instructions on an app, but some days i’m really just not feeling it at all. On those days i make my way to the treadmill. It is one of the most boring exercise machines, but sometimes that is exactly what i need. It frees my mind to contemplate life . On one side of my treadmill there is a cup-holder and on the other side there is a bigger oddly shaped compartment that i never figured out what it was supposed to accommodate.  I never discovered its real purpose, but  i found something that fits perfectly. My new ipad mini fits the mysterious compartment so well you would think it was made for it – it wasn’t, the treadmill is years old.  I like to watch movies while i’m walking on the treadmill. Most of the shows i watch i mentioned in my top tv shows post plus a few more recent ones. TV shows are a great distraction, by the end of the episode i enjoyed some tv and had a workout.

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renenwed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”

List the Words That Touch Your Soul

I decided to participate in Moorea Seal‘s Project 52. I’m a little late to the party, but hopefully I will catch up. I loved her description of the project and how it works:

“I love lists!  So I thought it would be fun to start a series on my blog for 2013 that focuses on List making, lists for fun, lists for self discovery, you name it.  And it’s all about participation!  Each week I’ll have a new list prompt for you to download.  I think it could be really fun to print out a page each week, collect them through the year and then bind them together at the end of the year as a little memento of 2013.”

The first prompt is:  List the Words That Touch Your Soul

Words that Touch My Soul

Words that Touch My Soul

I used ABCya! to create the word cloud. I think it showcases the words i chose in a more artistic form.

The words i chose revolved around:

  • The people i love and my relationship with them: Family, love, trust, loyalty
  • The things i love: Reading, writing, music
  • How i see the future: Edge, horizon, purpose, lost, hope, light, chances
  • Gentle reminders: Memories, relaxation, care, live, pray, breath
