You Don’t Make Me Sorry

… If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely.  If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative.  In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths.  Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts.  We can always replace negative with positive.

**Warning science content ahead!?!**

Place a ball on the desk in front of you and let it sit there, roll back in your chair and watch for a few moments.  Nothing happened, shocking we know!

Now reach in the centre drawer and pull out some sticky notes and a pen.  Write one of the following words/thoughts on the top half of each note:

Life, Yoga, Love, Work, Running, Lifting, Diet, Meditation, Pilates, Sex, Donuts … You get the point.  Fold them in half and place them randomly on your desk in front of you.

Each one of us has our own unique habits, just like the ball will keep sitting there unless new outside influences act upon it.

Now gently tap the ball towards one of your notes, any which one.

The Plan-

The Workout-

Form, Flow and Grace … Find balance and harmony in a refreshing Sun Salutation Series.  Followed by:

A Plank Medley consisting of the following: High Plank, Low Plank, Glute Bridge, One Arm Side Plank (each side), Forearm Plank, Side Plank (elbow bridge).

**All Planks will start with a Hinge Walk Out.  This is vitally important peeps, think about it?!?  When was the last time you bent over backwards?  Hinged backwards?  Oh, the last time you raised your hips from the floor into a Plank position.  Your precious little back and hips will thank you later … **

Notes:

The goal of our exercise above is to come as close to our note without knocking it over, to gently ease up to it.  Kinda like starting a new exercise program … Ease into it, slowly and with conviction.  Be well today and ENJOY!!!

    I cant remember the title of the book but the name frankl. He was in a concentration camp but didnt let his captors or the situation take the most important part of him. It takes a lot of… something to endure it. Can a person endure anything without a healthy level of self-respect?
