I have a vision for 2011… health, wellness, wealth, joy, balance, love… just to name a few things that come to mind when I think about my vision for this year.
I do realize that none of these things will come to me without effort and a plan wouldn’t hurt either. I actually attended a seminar (for the lack of a better word) on creating your “Vision Board”. The first thing the gal had us do was to rip words and pictures out of magazines. Anything… The sky was the limit. The pics/words were to be related to career, health, spirituality, leisure, etc. You know life themes.
Next she had us cut/trim all of the words/pics and finally she had us glue them onto a poster board. There was not a lot of direction… just do it however you are lead. And the only other requirement was to not let your mind stop you from choosing a pic or word…be child like. The interesting result was that everyone except me had mostly pictures on their poster boards…big pics. I had mostly words and some smaller pictures. I was the odd woman out. (Oh yeah everyone that was at the seminar was a woman.)
Now I have a “Vision Board” now I gotta figure out what the heck to do next.
In my post on January 3rd I mentioned that I was facing a lifebattle and that’s still the case today. The good news is that my fitbattle is just like breathing for me (most days). As long as I get my butt out of bed and I’m present in the moment I can face the fitbattle head on with not a lot of effort. Adding Bikram Yoga to my routine has helped too. It’s been a nice change of pace.
There are a couple of obvious questions… “What the heck am I going to do to win the lifebattle?” and “What am I going to do about this giant vision board that I created”? I’ve found that my morning workouts are essential to my peace of mind. I’ve known for a while that I’m addicted to endorphins and I need them more than ever right now. And I need them in the morning! So one thing is for sure until I feel like I’m back to 100% I will continue to fit in a morning trip to the gym or yoga each day.
One of my friends is a PA (Physician’s Assistant) and she recommended that I talk to an Herbalist about my state of mind. I did…and I’m adding a couple of supplements to my daily vitamin/supplement routine in an effort to smooth out the rough edges. Nothing too drastic and all perfectly safe.
If you’ve been following me for a while… you know that I tried out to be a BodyVive instructor last fall. I was not selected (I didn’t have the moves), but they did pre-select me for BodyPump. I’m attending the BodyPump group fitness instructor training this weekend. Apparently it takes about 3 months to get certified so this weekend is just the start.
Finally I’m going to work on removing my head from my @$$ and start studying again for the Personal Trainer certification. I got knocked off track a bit due to my lifebattle the last several months…but I’m going to focus and start dedicating time to my studies.
As for finding love…well that’s another blog. Meaning if I ever feel compelled to share my search for love I’ll create a new blog maybe called lovebattle or luvbattle or datingbattle or ???
Until later… Kathi
