Last month I started the DoYou Yoga free 30 day beginners challenge. I enjoy it and am learning my limitations and yet I see results already. I mean, I did my first plank in years yesterday! Even I was surprised! In the past two years my body has fallen apart and the yoga and hikes I used to do I am not able to do anymore. So I am starting from scratch and working my way back.
I also want to start a meditation practice. So yesterday I listened to a 20 minute meditation on CD and that was fine. Today I thought I'd leave the CD and just use one of the nice chime timers that can be found online. I found one that sounded exactly like I wanted and set it for 20 minutes and started. Well, after awhile my knees (arthritis) ached so I sat differently. Time went by, I went back to cross legged. Back to knees up. Touched the computer to see that it had STOPPED when the screen went dark (sleep)!!! That was the LONGEST 4 minutes EVER!!! The clock said otherwise. So my advice is to find a timer that doesn't stop when the computer sleeps.
I got most my new banner done yesterday but have a few small touches to do. I was going to show you all today but I got my book "The Tsar of Love and Techno" today and couldn't put it down. Between that and my podcast obsession (Reply All, This American Life etc.) I am getting "nothing" done. :)
