Hello Blogger friends!
Happy February, y’all. Sorry, I’ve been absent for the past few weeks, but I’m excited to be back with an upbeat post. Though, I’m technically posting late for the #ultimatecoffeedate linkup, but at least I am sharing, right? ~Better late than never.~
So if we were sitting down for coffee today — in a cute little cafe down the street, of course — I’d share that…
I’m really into teas right now
I used to be a black tea-only kind of gal (both English breakfast & Indian teas) but after I fell into an unfortunate string of back-to-back colds starting in December, I expanded my reservoir of tea leaves to fend off sickness. I even bought a nifty little tea-infuser! Now I constantly stock green (almost always raspberry), moringa, peppermint, chamomile and liquorice teas, in addition to classic black tea. And I just discovered ginger green tea, so that’s a powerhouse variety that I must purchase on my next grocery run.
The teas have helped keep me away from sugary sodas, which I don’t allow myself to buy at the grocery store. (Though I will indulge in one every once in a while if I’m out for a meal with friends.) But don’t worry, I haven’t given up coffee! I simply prefer to pick up brewed lattes when I’m at Costa or Starbucks, because they taste better than the coffee powder currently sitting in my kitchen cabinet. ~ Everything in moderation.~
I finally bought a new yoga mat!
It feels sooo good to be back on the mat. And I enjoy being able to fit my practice around my weekly schedule of classes and work, in the comfort of my living space. The mental and physical boosts I feel, which I’m sure you other yogis can relate to, really help to destress in the evenings.
The #SweatPink #PoseoftheDay challenge has kept me on track
I love seeing everyone’s cool pose variations, many against very scenic backgrounds, on Instagram and Twitter. It’s been the motivation I’ve needed to stay moving , especially when the sky is grey and stormy and all I really want to do is crawl into bed and watch Netflix all day. (Because who wouldn’t want to do that? I mean, really?) But there’s a beauty and strength in all forms of exercise, whether they’re conducted outdoors or indoors. Because we’re taking care of our bodies, showing them love and investing in their future – our future.
Now, it’s over to you. What have you been up to in the past month?
