*Monday Morning Coffee Date is filled with all the things I’d share if we were actually having coffee this morning
Holy cow. The last Monday of February 😯
Things have been super chaotic around here. We’ve developed some pretty bad habits…meaning the kids are spending too much time on the computer and their eating/exercise habits are less than stellar. And they’ve really started fighting me on everything. Whining and fighting and crying all the time. So, we’re really working on breaking those habits and getting back on a good schedule.
I have been working really hard on taking better care of myself. I’ve always but myself on the back burner and it caused a lot of stress and just overall unhappiness in my life. Every day, I’m trying to take a little bit of time to focus on myself. And, I’ve found that my stress levels have gone way down, my anxiety doesn’t show up as much and I feel better about life in general. So here’s what I want to tell you…self-care…do it. It makes a world of difference and I promise you will find yourself becoming happier with life.
My coffee addiction is at an all time high right now. I crave it all day every day. I’m trying to find healthy ways to curb the craving and nothing is working. So…if anyone has any ideas, I will gladly take them.
My favorite yoga girl does a quarterly yoga box called the YBC mantra box. I ordered the winter box and finally got it on Saturday. Guys. GUYS! I’m so excited for the products in this box and will be doing a review later this week. So stay tuned.
In other workout news…I’m finally getting my handstand. 🙌🏻 This is HUGE for me. Upper body strength is something I struggle with. When I started yoga a year(ish) ago, I set a goal to get work towards handstand. And one of my fitness goals for this year is to be able to hold it and start doing handstand walks and now…now I’m starting to see those results. Moral of the story? If you have a fitness goal and are struggling to hit it. Keep working. It took me a year to see these results. And yeah…it’s frustrating. Super frustrating. But then, the day you hit that goal? It feels so, so good!
