I bought these flowers to make me happy, brighten up the entry way, and welcome myself home after a 10-day vacation. Except the cats seem to be loving the flowers more than me. Totally cool – I brought the wild into their box and wrapped it up in a vase.
Also totally cool, my compulsion to purchase classes at various fitness studios in bulk. It took me a long time to realize I am not a gym person anymore. I’d purchase a membership, go for a month, then slowly taper off.
When I found yoga, that totally changed. I bought myself an elliptical to take care of cardio at home and bought a package at the studio to practice yoga. Then, a year ago, another hot yoga studio opened 5-minutes from my home (other studio is 20-minutes away). Once I started going there more regularly out of convenience, I purchased a package of classes there. So now I’m juggling two yoga studios based on my schedule – totally doable.
Enter: the Bar Method. Now I’m in the middle of a 30-day unlimited package, which I’ve pretty much committed myself to as my sole workout form until the package runs out (holy expensive!). Enter: PAUSE on TWO yoga packages. Oh – and did I mention that I also bought a package at the local Bikram studio at a total steal of a deal? That will begin after the Bar Method package ends. Yea. Keeping track? Let”s not even enter the cycling studio into the equation. Luckily I was smart enough to by that on a per-class basis as needed.
So what’s the problem? My inability to say no to work opportunities. I need to prioritize – as much as I love a good paycheck, I love feeling good too. Work versus Working Out. The eternal battle.
