Negaunee, MichiganOctober 23, 2018 – This is so hard. I don’t feel like I can say that enough while in the thick of this program. This complete and total transformation. It is utterly exhausting, but in a good way.

The Laws for Week #2 were:

3. Step out of your comfort zone

4. Commit to growth

Theme: Vitality

Homework: 30 minute yoga practice every day for 6 days.  Meditation 10 minutes twice a day. Journal on book questions and what comes up. Balancing diet: Fresh foods. Read Week #3 in book.

I followed everything, but faltered on doing the yoga and meditation every day. It was difficult to keep up with it, since I have such a busy schedule. I found myself getting increasingly exhausted trying to fit it all in. Self-care is so extremely important, and the yoga and meditation is essential to self-care within this program.

The Laws for Week #3 were:

5. Shift your vision

6. Drop what you know

Theme: Equanimity

Homework: 45 minute yoga practice every day for 6 days. Meditation 15 minutes twice a day. Journal on book questions and what comes up. Balancing Diet: Fresh foods. Read Week #4 in book.

I followed this all too, but couldn’t quite do the entire 45 minute practice. I did on some days, but others I could only do 20 minutes. But, that’s okay, because I did it! same with meditation. 5 minutes was all I could muster some days, but like I said: I did it, and that’s what matters.

The thing I’m struggling with the most is diet. I have such a busy, go go go lifestyle that eating “on the go” has become my routine. I normally grab a yogurt and a piece of fruit for breakfast and eat in between breaks on the show. Lunch is really whatever is there, or whatever I can pick up quick. Most days, though, I don’t eat lunch at all. I forget about it, and by the time I remember, I’m starving and it’s 2 or 3 PM. So by then it’s pointless because I’ll eat dinner around 5/6PM.

So I’m driving the struggle bus when it comes to diet. However, I know it’s just myself holding me back with this. I need to schedule lunch in, as well as practice and meditation. It’s just how I’m going to need to do it.

Wish me luck!
