7 Minute Goal

I have a new goal, one I am initially intending to do every day until christmas in the first instance, and then beyond in 2015 if I can!

7 Minutes seems to be an optimum amount of time, or at least a 'trendy' amount of time to do something, and certainly, one can argue: we can all spare 7 minutes of every day. You can see it suggested here for Workouts, Meditation, and making a good impression

So my goal:
58. 7 Minutes of Yoga. Every. Day

I'm terrible at practicing at home, as I am so easily distracted once I start. Or find myself reluctant to start at all. Not ideal for a Yoga Teacher!

So, thats my new goal, and new 'leaf' I'm turning over. I started this morning with 7 minutes of yoga in my empty office.

Fresh Fall

Autumn is about fresh starts; new term, back to school, and I'll be starting my new job in a few weeks, and today is my last day at my current job :D

Tomorrow I'll be jetting off for 10 days in paradise before starting a new job in October, so it will be a fresh start for me and I am really keen to make the most of this chance to start afresh


My Autumn Goals

  • Lose weight. My goal is to lose a stone over the next 4 months or so (goal 22)
  • Engage fully with my job for my 3 month probation, and beyond (related to goal 57)
  • Now I will no longer be using the university gym - settle into new exercise regime inc. cross fit, yoga, running and Bath YMCA classes

The weather outside is frightful....



The weather is turning that's for sure, check our these pics from Bath, Corsham + Chippenham last night




Its cold and damp on campus today, and my mind is turning to hot drinks, scarfs and autumn walks

New September

Lets have a moment to reflect on my September 2013

Jane Austen Promenade
Tough Mudder
Cross-fit Throwdown
I signed up for my Yoga teacher training! In fact, exactly a year ago today I made my decision to do it

This is why I love blogging, I can see exactly what I was thinking/planning one year ago today, and now I can feel proud that I achieve my goal and am now a fully fledged teacher :D

And this September? Much less fitness based, but utterly glorious...
I've handed in my notice at work, been to a fabulous wedding, Goodwood Revival, and 5 days I'll be going here:

Mauritius

Goodwood Revival

Here's to Septembers, Autumn, looking back at all we've achieved, and looking forward to new adventures!
