If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.”
Skipping is a strenuous exercise so start slowly. Try skipping for 20-30 seconds, marching on the spot for 30 seconds, repeat. As your fitness improves you can increase the time you skip for. Once you have perfected the basic move, you can make your workout more interesting by trying some of the following jumps:
Skip Jump - hop on one foot and kick the other foot to the front (or behind) the body, alternate legs
Jog Jump - alternate your feet in a jogging movement as you jump the rope
Hop Jump – hop on one leg for for several jumps, alternate legs (start with 2 per leg and increase as you improve)
Jack Jump – do “jumping jacks” as you jump – one jump land with your legs apart, next jump land with them together. -Source
I find there’s a correlation between my tumblr activity and how my life is going. I haven’t been on tumblr in a few months. Been in a ‘rut’ in every aspect of my life lately. I can’t stand browsing my feed and seeing all these happy / healthy posts. Especially when I feel so unhappy and unhealthy.
I haven’t been eating a nourishing vegan diet (I’ve been ordering pizza on average 3x a week). It’s so easy.
I haven’t practiced yoga. I haven’t meditated. My body is sore and unforgiving. My mind is cloudy and chaotic.
My marriage hit an all time low. There’s been a giant space between us and constant ridiculous arguments, they never end.
I feel like I’m in the “I’ll get my shit together tomorrow” stage. Except every day I say tomorrow. It’s been months now.
I am actually physically sick right now, which never (used) to happen. My body is clearly reflecting the behaviors I’ve been participating in lately.
It’s time for a shift.
A few days ago my husband said he wanted to try and fix things before it was too late. Since then he’s been super appreciate of what I do and he even made dinner last night. I really do love him. The way he’s turned around and been so good to me just makes it all the more clear how crappy I feel lately. How the negative energy is just radiating out of me.
I need to get my life together.
