Following the change of tact with NewMumOnline's Monday linky I have spent far less time this week actually thinking about my weight and far more time just getting on with things. The kitchen spring clean/sort out has begun - I found £6 in loose change behind the microwave :-) - and a fair bit of time has been spent in the garden digging and tidying up ready for Spring planting.
I have been doing a lot more Yoga this week too - using the WiiFit as a prompt/reminder ( a word about this at the end of this post*) and the Little Man has been joining in. It's very sweet watching him try and hold the Warrior pose but I really do not recommend doing the Cobra with a nearly 3 stone toddler on your back!
As I promised last week I have been practising deep breathing - inhaling slowly, expanding my belly, exhaling slowly, relaxing my belly. I have been doing this for a few minutes before I go to sleep and found it to be very relaxing. I have also found I had some incredibly vivid and emotional dreams this week. I suspect the two are connected...
This week I hope to move on to the 4/4 Energising Breath - a more conscious breathing exercise that, as the name suggests, revitalises the body - great for those mid-afternoon slumps where I would normally reach for something sweet to eat.
Energy is really what I need - Little Man has been waking up earlier with the sun and running me ragged all day, then still not wanting to go to sleep at night. Where does he get his energy from? I wish he would share it with me :-)
