Well, my week became even more complicated and I have to confess that I did not exercise during the past five days except for walking. I started to beat myself up for being so close to finishing my 30 days and then not.
Don’t you find it interesting that challenges seem to come in clusters? Challenges at work. Challenges with health. Challenges with technology. All of these challenges interrupted two separate commitments that I made to myself – one through this fitness challenge and the other through a creative challenge on Instagram called #the100dayproject.
I think the lesson learned through these challenges was not to give up when I started to struggle. During my group meditation class, Henry who leads the group talked about starting and stopping your mediation practice. It is not bad – it is reality. When you stop, simply give yourself permission to begin again.
Today is Sunday for me – a day to reflect and regroup. I started my day by joining a Twitter chat, #spiritchat. I am always uplifted by participating in this chat – 9 am EST (6 am in my time zone on the western edge of Canada).
I needed some fun today and this 38-minutes video by Ejercicio Salsa is fitness disguised in a whole bunch of fun. I love salsa music and by the middle of this video you are dancing. Stella Sandoval leads you through the dance moves. Dancing brings me so much joy.
Let’s get moving!
