Workout and Word of the Day #103

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Yesterday was an exceptionally wonderful day.  A dear friend of mine came to visit me and it was the first time we have seen each other in the past 8 years.  We made coffee and talked and visited for hours.  It turned out that all of my nervousness and anxiety was unnecessary.   All I had to do was be myself.

After the visit, my boyfriend and I drove to Hilo and went for a walk around Hawaii’s largest Japanese garden.  The weather was absolutely perfect and today looks like it will be another stunning beauty of a day.

When I got home, I spent the evening looking over photographs from the day, but also photographs of the past.  I caught myself envying my 22 year old self and the way I smiled and my skin glowed.  I started being critical of my current self saying that the shape of my head is ugly.  Isn’t it awful that we are such harsh judges of ourselves?  At least I am.  It turns out that I have more work to do.  By the evening I felt drained and unmotivated, but I decided to at least do yoga since it was the beginning of the month and I don’t want to skip workouts.

Yesterday’s Workout: Ballet + Yoga

Total Body Ballet Workout for Beginners:

This was a good way to get back into improving my posture.  I want to start doing some ballet or dance style workouts this month.  I am happiest when I am a dancer.

Grounding in Gratitude root chakra | Yoga with Adriene

This practice was EXACTLY what I needed.  I had beautiful dreams at night.  Slept better than I have in a long time and woke up feeling refreshed and well-rested.


Word of the Day:

xanadu– noun

  1. A place of great beauty, luxury, and contentment.

Thank you for joining me for another workout and word of the day.  I hope you will have a lovely day today!

❤ Alana
