One Thing for 2015 | Beginning.

…remember a few weeks back I posted about that One Thing? A huge Thank You for your encouragement and creative input!

Day One.

I’ve decided it’s going to be yoga. Yep, that hadn’t even made the short list when I wrote that last post; it seemed too much of a stretch. But a few more things came together over that next week (including a very surprising one little word) and daily yoga suddenly didn’t seem so hard. My goal is just 15 minutes a day, with poses focused on flexibility, balance and strength. Days I get to take a class are easy; it’s the days where it’s me and my mat and the Yoga Studio app on my iPad that are making this a stretch.

That cute little Moleskine was Friday’s idea. I wanted a place to record details about my practice – and my progress. Not that I’ve seen any progress, but I do have five entries in the journal and that makes me happy. (it also makes me happy that I got the very first issue of the limited edition of 290!)

So far, I’ve taken three classes and practiced on my own twice. I’m already thinking about how I can get to more classes; I took one on Saturday and one today that I never considered making “regular” until now!

and I have to say, I feel good about it all. despite being a little sore.

I finally watched the January video for Ali’s One Little Word class yesterday and see she’s suggesting One Thing. I know a lot of you are choosing words. Are you taking Ali’s class? do have a One Little Thing? I’d love to hear about your plans!

    This is a good thing-I'm hoping to do more stretching and planking this year. Other than that I'm keeping it pretty simple-no project life or OLW, but that also might change!

    Those sound three great attributes for life, let alone for one's body! Isn't it funny how inspiration arrives with us? Yoga was a big part of my life before the children, and it's on my intentions list this year, but starting in February – I have other things i need to embed in my life first to support it. Wishing you lots of joy in it :).
