As I mentioned, I was in this crazy motivated and productive mood yesterday. I committed myself to a couple more (much smaller) goals. The first is a 30 day yoga challenge, hosted by Dashama and Vitamix. Every day a new pose is posted, and everyone participating posts a picture of themselves doing it. Day 1 was Warrior.
I already have a Vitamix, so I’m not really interested in the prize, just in pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
I also committed to Jen’s 30 day green smoothie challenge!
As of right now, I’m in a really good habit of having a green smoothie on every “working” day (as a server I definitely do not work a normal or predictable schedule). My Vitamix has honestly been life-changing when it comes to this. And no, Vitamix isn’t sponsoring me. Not that I’d say no. Heyyyyyy Vitamix. Anyway, I can throw in pretty much whatever’s in the fridge and call it breakfast (or lunch, or dinner…). This one contains kale, spinach, cucumber, carrots, frozen mixed berries, a banana, hemp hearts, chia seeds, flax seeds and Vega protein powder. I usually make a big batch in the morning and enjoy it for breakfast plus a snack or 2 throughout the day. I would like to start doing this EVERY day, not just working days. Hopefully openly taking on this challenge is just the kick I need!
I can’t decide if these challenges are a ramp up to or a distraction from the biggest 30 of April….my 30th birthday! I’m trying really hard to have a positive attitude about entering a new decade, but it’s a little bit terrifying. My life is definitely not anything like the way that I thought it would be at this point 15, 10, or even 5 years ago. That’s not to say that I don’t (mainly) love everything about it. Just that there are some big goals that I have in mind for the next couple years and that I need to get moving!
