Ahhh, what a relaxing weekend…

Ahhh, what a relaxing weekend…

This past weekend was absolutely wonderful.  Why you ask? Because I left my schedule wide open, and didn’t have anything to do.  I did this purposely, as I wanted time for some serious R&R, but also because I just needed to reset and decompress after the whirlwind start of the new year.

It was great to continue the journaling practice, and to read and play music as I started my one hour of no electronics for this weeks’ lifestyle challenge.  I had the opportunity to sleep in and wake up naturally three days in a row!  As most of you know, I’m an early riser who gets into gear fairly quickly, but sometimes this guy needs some sleep too.   I worked out with Coach Benet on Saturday morning (still feeling the effects of Kalsu Jr.), cooked a bunch of food, visited a friend with a new baby boy, studied nutrition, stretched and mobilized, then had a nice dinner with a friend.  Sunday was spent practicing yoga and then watching some great football action. 

It was so great to have time during the day to get “action items” accomplished, or to work on those projects that have been lagging.

All in all, it was a “Me” kind of weekend, one that was necessary to reset the gears a bit.  I highly suggest leaving some time open during the day, and filling it with what brings you joy.
