Butterfly Rain

I woke up this morning at 5am and though I didn`t feel terrible, I knew it would be better if I took the day off yoga. I got up and drove down to the studio anyway as today is the day to sign up for the 30 Day Challenge (referred to as 30DC hereafter). The last few days I have been a little burnt out and even considered cutting down the yoga to a few times a week. I know deep down that I must push through this difficult phase as it`s just a bit of a tantrum. In my foundation I am sure this practice is what I need to be doing right now. read more

Go Go Gadget Phone

Today I did it. When is the last time I made a three year commitment? I do not know. It was a long process with a lot of humming and hawing but it has finally come to an end. I signed the contract and the deal is done. There is no going back now. I am an owner of a new cell phone complete with a three year plan. I had to move from the non-contractual pay as you go because it was getting expensive and the phone was dropping calls like hot potatoes. read more

Walk in the Park

Sunday I prolly could have gone to yoga but I decided to just start fresh on Monday. I did however go on a megawalk inspired by the marathon that was going on in front of my house. They even turned on the High Level Bridge waterfall which I must say, was quite a spectacular sight to wake up to. read more

Day 1 of 60

Monday I went to class at 6am but about 4 poses in, I had to leave the room. I have never left the room as it is just something you don`t do. It is disruptive to others and also to your own body. But I was on the verge of throwing up so I made eye contact with Andrea the instructor before slipping out the door. read more

My Yoda

After Mondays reality check, I still made it to yoga every day but not always at 6am. I decided to make the commitment to go and just take it easy. It`s hard for me to do this as I always want to try 110 percent right from the start. This burns me out quicker and if I am at all weak, I will be struggling badly by the end. I find that I will attach ugly feelings to the class and my practice during this time of intense difficulty. read more

Extra Buttery Creamy Goodness – Banff, Alberta, Canada

It was a long drive from Edmonton to Fairmont though after a few breaks, it was do-able. I love how friendly the service station staff are so long as you talk to them as people. I also realized that as long as you put your mind to it, you can focus and concentrate on the road to get to exactly where you need to go. read more

Chillaxin in the Mountains – Fairmont, British Columbia, Canada

The weekend went by at a leisurely pace. Nothing major stood out except for the greek food and the yoga class. The class was different than the kind I am used to but some of the postures were similar. I didn`t really feel challenged at all and though the instructor was nice, she didn`t seem very positive. She kept talking about how terrible she felt and how she just didn`t know what was going on. It was a strange experience but I just did my best to maintain my space and focus on my body.

The Hitchhiker – Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Monday was spent doing a whole lot of driving. First I woke and worked for the better half of the day then zoomed back to Calgary. It had just started raining when I got there but it was not a problem. I was only going to visit with my good friend Kelly and rain surely wouldn`t dampen our spirits. Its been some time since we have caught up so it was really special to have a quick bite to eat while we shared stories. I was going to stay overnight but it just seemed like it wasn`t meant to be.

Worst Yoga Class Ever

On Tuesday I made it to the early yoga then had a full day of work ahead of me. I plugged away at work. I puttered around the house most of the day glad to be home. Magic mananged to mess up the house so I had to tidy up after her. She pretty much destroyed her scratching post and now there are fluffy bits in every nook and cranny. read more

Hunting my prey

I am tired. I am sick of trying to guess what humans motives are. I am exhausted by the trickery and deception that people have with each other. It`s sick really. And I wish I didn`t see it. I am sorry for being so negative but it is what it is.

I suppose I am supposed to take a moment. A reality check. But truth is…it is a dis-reality. There is nothing I can rely on in this outer world. It is so very clear, I don`t belong here. read more
