Feels so long since I posted so I'm happy you are here!
I've had a mad week, both at home and work, chasing my tail whilst
struggling with niggling back pain and lack of sleep.
I'm grateful that my back isn't a quarter as bad as it has been in the past
but now know I need to do something preventative -
I'm thinking 1:1 Pilates sessions initially then moving to group sessions.
I know my problem is my core - despite being generally fit my core muscles
are far from the strongest and I know they won't improve by themselves -
time to put some work in I think!!
I was unable to lead my running group last week and that just guts me....
I have always been fortunate to enjoy free Yoga sessions at work on a Friday lunchtime but never quite managed to carve time out in my diary - now they have finished :-(
(due to lack of attendance gggrrr)
I am going to wake slightly earlier and do a 10 minute morning
yoga session for the whole of May.
According to Leo Babauta who writes the fabulous Zen Habits a
habit is formed after 21 sessions have been incorporated into your life -
so hopefully this ritual will last far longer than May!!
Obviously starting a new activity means a trip to Sweaty Betty.
Research shows that if you feel good in your chosen sport clothing you
actually work harder, well that's my excuse anyway, hehe!
“In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference and in thirty you will have a whole new body.”
