 WORKOUT OF THE DAY

WED 02.05.13 Noon yoga today

By | Quarterly Progress Checks | 3 Comments

Noon yoga starts today!

Beth is back teaching yoga, now on Wednesdays at noon in the front room.
Yoga can help with many ailments/complaints I regularly hear about from CFM students: you're achy, sore, tight, inflexible, unable to concentrate, stressed out, unable to relax...
Yoga is INCLUDED in your CFM membership. It doesn't even count as one of your weekly classes, so give it a try! We even have some spare mats you can use.
In addition to Beth's Wednesday noon class, Monica also teaches a yoga class Thursdays at 8:15p at CFM.

Last Friday's noon class doing their best flying squirrel imitations for Coach Woody. If you've never attended Animal Warm-Up Friday, you are missing out. Big time.

Striking a Balance

by Uran
This past weekend I attended CFM’s Ayurveda Workshop with Anna Russ. Boy oh boy, am I glad I did. One of my goals this year is to find some balance in my life.
I confess: I have a bad habit of being an “all or nothing” kind of person, and unfortunately, it has led to some unhealthy decisions. If I can only make it to the gym once this week, why go at all? If I can’t have a perfectly paleo meal when I’m eating out with my friends, why not just blow it out with something completely unhealthy? I’m not proud of it, but it’s the truth, and this mentality has created a lot of additional and unnecessary stress in my life.
So, I’ve decided to stop it. I’ve committed to quit beating myself up about every little thing that falls short of perfection, because that is unrealistic, unattainable, and the opposite of good goal-setting.
Instead, I’ve vowed to focus on the wins in my life. While I made some good progress on my own in January, this workshop helped me reinforce this goal for February as well. It gave me some steps to understanding who I am and learning how to work with, rather than against, myself to find balance and live in the present moment. And finally, it reminded me that self-care is a lifelong process.
As we move into CFM’s February Challenge on Positive Thinking, think about if you’re struggling to find balance in your own life. For those of you who are, what will you do to center yourselves and regain your equilibrium?

Congrats on all your January Goals & Achievements! Add your new goals to the board in the box this week. Congrats to Casey on listing our first February accomplishment on the board: SHE DID ALL 10 PULL UPS IN THE BASELINE RX'ED FOR THE FIRST TIME!
