Yeah…she was running all over my face! It seemed that even my eyes were sweating during Cirque Fit!
When I first arrived tonight, my arms and shoulders were still screaming about their weekend treatment at the last Cirque Fit class and a subsequent visit to the Fitness Center yesterday. Even while warming up, my right arm especially was balking, but I pushed through. I only hope I don’t pay for it tomorrow when I have to get on the silks! After about a half hour, I got better situated and was able to keep up without as much pain. That was when the Mary Kay started to melt.
I will say that my arms are beginning to get a little bit sculpted! And the bump on my bicep is on TOP of the arm, not hanging below it! 🙂
And so I made it home after the rousing Cirque Fit!
Today was also the first day of the 21 Day Meditation Challenge with Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. It’s been quite a while since I meditated in this way…I have been using guided visualization for quite a while, but I have been having some issues with that lately.
Today’s centering thought was “I commit to living perfect health.” What a perfect focus for me at this time! Again, I am a huge fan of synchronicity!
Our Sanskrit mantra for today:
Om Bhavam Namah
“I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities.”
Today’s Questions and Journal Entries:
Day 1 – Question 1
What does perfect health mean to you?
Perfect health means honoring my body with good food, proper rest, exercise, no smoking (I quit two months ago!), and higher thoughts. I am working toward living up to these ideals every day.
As you seek perfect health, what would you most like to improve?
I would most like to improve my weight. I have been taking the 12 Week Aerial Arts Challenge and have been working out five times a week, as well as meeting with a nutritionist, I do not see a difference on the scale (I am in week 9). However, I know that muscle weighs more than fat, so I must be content with knowing that I am making positive changes that I can actually see.
How would your life transform if you felt completely vibrant and strong?
I would become even more physically active and have more confidence in doing things I have always wanted to do (or return to once more). I know for a fact that I would smile more.
I think I shall wake up a half hour earlier in the morning so as to meditate before going to work. With the stress of my job, that might be a good idea. I wanted to try to meditate during my lunch hour, but I cannot access the site on my school computer, nor can I get the meditations on my Android. I had to wait until after my Cirque Fit workout tonight before I was able to finally do my meditation.
Since this Challenge is an open forum and free to everyone, I think it must be okay to share these ideas and thoughts here. I won’t post them everyday… only on the days that I blog after the 12 Week Challenge. If you want to take part in the 21 Day Meditation Challenge, see my previous post and the link there!
