I’m sure you guys can relate to the feeling of having no time! I had a nice weekend and accomplished a lot, but my To Do list is still jam-packed with tasks. 😐 I honestly wish that the day had a few more hours in it just so that I could get everything done. How do you guys manage it all? Do you have any tips or trick for simplifying your lives? I need some serious guidance in this department!
I made my favorite combination of oats for breakfast this morning (banana-peanut butter), but with some fun additions. Mmmmm!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup Peace Cereal
- 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter
My oats were excellent this morning! A good bowl of oats can do wonders for your outlook on the day! 😀 While typing this blog post, I made myself an iced coffee with agave nectar and chocolate soy milk. I’ll be taking it to go with me on my commute to work this morning.
And speaking of my commute, I have some new reading material for the T. The lovely people of Pom sent me a book: Rubies in the Orchard: How to Uncover the Hidden Gems in Your Business, which is filled with real-life tales of marketing strategies that the author and her husband had great success with– companies like Fiji Water, Teleflora, the Franklin Mint and Pom Wonderful. I’m definitely looking forward to starting it this morning!
Yoga Challenge: The Final Stretch
Well, guys. For those of you who have made it to this point in the 31 Day Yoga Challenge, CONGRATS!!! I, however, have been a bum and have slacked off on my daily practice. I’ve skipped so many days now that I’ve lost track. 😕 I was truly enjoying the Yoga Challenge, so I don’t know what happen? I guess life just got too busy and my priorities shifted. Hopefully, I will get back on track with my yoga practice soon. I pre-paid for 9 more classes at Healing Tree Yoga, so that should be motivation enough!
So, I have thought long and hard about how to determine the “winners” of the Challenge. I have three wonderful yoga prizes to give away, so I have decided to hold an “essay” contest to pick the winners. While I know that some of you practiced yoga for 31 days in a row, I want to give everyone who participated in the Challenge a chance to win a prize. (Plus, I have no way of really knowing who participated every single day and who didn’t.) Even if you practiced yoga just one day during the Yoga Challenge, you are eligible to enter the contest. Here’s how it will work:
I’m very interested in what you guys have to say about your progress from the start of the Challenge to the end– how yoga has benefited you both mentally and physically as well as any other insights that you might have into the Challenge or yoga in general. So, to enter, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your thoughts, insights, and opinions about your experience with the 31 Day Yoga Challenge. I’m not expecting you to write a real essay– just a paragraph or two on your experience. Once I receive all of your entries, I will post them on the blog and the CNC readers will pick the three winners based on the thoughtfulness of your essay. The deadline to submit your “essay” is by the end of the day on Wednesday, April 1, 2009. If you have any questions about the contest, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Also, leave your comments about your practice for Days 27-30 on this morning’s post. I should hopefully have time to compile them this evening.
