Feeding Your Soul Tuesday: Time for Some R&R
This morning I woke up early. got some quiet time to read my bible, and the hit the gym for my morning track workout. It’s raining and cold so I had no other choice but to run on the treadmill. I did an easy couple of miles warm-up and then a lot of pretty intense 200’s!!! For a total of about 5 miles of running. I then did some AB work with the medicine ball. I love using the medicine ball for my AB workouts, I need to get one for the home.
Came home and decided to start the week off right with a bowl of protein and flax oats!
½ c of oats
½ c vanilla almond milk
½ c H2O
scoop of banana Muscle Milk protein powder
Pinch of pumpkin spice
1/8 Honest Foods Plank bar
Handful of flax seed
Handful of blueberries
Sprinkle of brown sugar
tsp of vanilla
topped with a sprinkle of coconut
*and a spoonful of flax nut butter from Naturally Nutty
We are all out of bananas I am hitting up the market after work today!
TUESDAY FEEDING YOUR SOUL, SOME R&R!
I think one of the best ways that you can FEED your soul, is to take some time away from the WORLD. Like going up to mountains, or sitting at the beach. If you don’t have either, you can always take a walk in the park. We all need that time to be renewed and refreshed. For me going to the mountains and sitting on the cabin porch right before the sun goes up helps me to be still and take in the beauty that is all around me. I haven’t done this in a long time. On most of my vacations I am jam packed with “doing” things. I know I talked about being still last week, but where is the best places to be still. A lot of you said your Yoga practice helps you to be still, but is this in your home or away from home?
I think real rest and relaxation comes from being away from your busy lifestyle all together. When was the last time you got away, for an hour, for a day, for a weekend. When was the last time you had real R&R?
Have a relaxing and restful Tuesday even if it’s only for an HOUR!
