Life Changes

The other day as i was scrolling through Instagram and saw this quote that really hit me hard with how I am feeling. The quote read “Nothing is worth it if your aren’t happy” Posted by Motivation Monday.

These word hit me, because for some parts of my life I feel like its not worth it and i am not putting my 100% into it.

The truth is my job is dragging me down and I am in need of a way out. I am not happy with where I am currently employed and because of this I feel like its not worth coming in to.

I have talked with friends and family and they keep saying I should find a new place of employment. Yes, that is what I would like to do I just don’t know how to take that step. The step i am having the problem with is do i want to stay where i am in the same position and maybe take the chance of feeling the say way with my next employer or do i change fields.  My heart said i need to changes fields and start something new and this is where I am having The problem, What should my change be. I want to do something that will keep me busy and motivated to want to get up and get out of the house. No something that makes me cry on the way to work.

So my plan is to jump, take a leap and hopefully do well with my next career move. I know that I don’t want to do something that includes sitting behind a desk all day and thinking about the other places I would rather be. Because to me that is the quote “Nothing is worth it if your aren’t happy” My happy would be, being active and always moving. Lets see what I can find.

If any one has taken the leap and changed careers to better them self please share. I would love to hear what you are doing now.

 

Yoga Newbie

I wanted to add a little more to my workout plan and thought that yoga would be the perfect fit as it is strength and stretch all in one. I have done some yoga classes in the past but let put it this way I am still very much a beginner.

So being a beginner in the yoga world I have been on the hunt for some great first-time yoga tips and I have to say I have found some good ones that I want to share. all of the ones I have found can be done in the comfort of your own home. So no need to worry about having a crazy life and feel like you can’t make those classes. Or thinking that everyone in the class is going to be better than you. This way you can work at your own pace and build your strength and flexibly.

Here are some of the top yoga poses for beginners that most yogis recommend.

  1. The Child’s Pose
  2. Downward Facing Dog
  3. Upward Facing Dog
  4. Warrior Pose  1 & 2
  5. Triangle Pose
  6. Wide Leg Forward Fold
  7. Superman Pose
  8. Chair Pose
  9. Bridge Pose
  10. Plank Pose

All these poses are great and you get a full body workout.

I was able to get them to all flow into a really nice routine and had a good hold on each pose for around 10 – 30 seconds depending on my flexibility. I started off with the Childs pose as that was a good one to work into the rest and get the muscle loose and warmed up. When doing your routine try to do a few reps of each pose to get the full effect and don’t forget to do both the right and the left side when needed.

Happy Posing

Time for a Challenge

My step one has been finding something that I feel may work for me. I have done diets in the past, joined gyms for a month and tried to do pay as you go yoga classes. My problem is that once i have a week off because of something I may have had to go to for my children or myself like a school dance or sports game then it throws me all off my grove.

This time around I have decided to try an at home app for some easy training. I am trying the 30 day fitness challenge. I started on the first of May and am now on day 3. It has been the perfect amount of exercise to start me off with. The 20 minute workout I have started is their Easy full body workout and I have also have also added in a couple of stretches at the beginning and end of each workout. It’s first couple of days it has been pretty good. Different strengthening technique along with a bit of cardio. I think I may want to move up the cardio part a bit but other than that It has been real good and my muscles have been feeling it the next day.

I will keep you updated on how it goes and what i find for uping my cardio.
