LOL! Good morning, and happy Monday! On Saturday evening, having completed 12.5 of my 33 required miles on the Peloton for the day, I decided to take a long walk with Gwendolyn. And on this walk, I called Becky to whine.
“I DON’T WANT TO RIDE ANYMORE TODAY! MY LEGS ARE TIRED. MY BRAIN IS BORED. I JUST WANT TO HAVE A LONG LUXURIOUS YOGA PRACTICE UPON RETURNING TO HOME!”
She said, “Then say, ‘I’m Done!'”
So I did. LOL.
I ended my 33-mile daily cycling requirement. Succeeding for 12 of the 18 declared days, I guess this means, based on my post entitled Bend and stretch, Reach for the stars. There goes Jupiter, Here comes Mars, that I am not a good candidate for marriage, ha ha!
When I am good, I am 100%. But when I am bad, I am bad to the bone. So in canceling my 33-mile daily requirement on Saturday night, I decided to go to party town on Sunday. Spent the entire morning walking with Becky and her Bella. And of course with Gwendolyn! Upon arrival to home around 1pm? It was martini time and plus time for this new incredible show that I never knew existed, and I want to know of why my older friends have not turned me onto it, until now!!!!!!!!!
I could be the wife of Blake Carrington. What a man!
And his devoted wife, Krystle Carrington. What a beauty!
We completely ignored every side hustle project yesterday and binge-watched nine episodes, breaking only to fetch dinner and to conduct the normal routine walks.
But in analysing the entire ordeal, my strength does not exist in accomplishing of my goal mileage. My strength exists in saying no to overcommitment. I hate the phrase of “listen to your body.” But it’s applicable for those of you with mushy brains. For people like me, let’s call it scientific analysis of the scenario.
On Saturday morning, a little FB “On This Day” message appeared offering a quotation by Lino Miele of the benefits of the Marichyasana series of Ashtanga yoga. I’ve stowed away my book at present so cannot quote it for you, but it made my body ACHE FOR YOGA. My muscles are bulky right now, and I don’t love the state of my body after all of this riding and very little yoga. Sorry, not sorry, that I prefer thighs like Heidi Klum versus thighs of Hercules!
When riding 33 miles per day, it is impossible for me to have a divine yoga practice. And, I sleep way too much because my body is so damn exhausted! So through this little exercise, I have decided that it is opportune for my body to cycle between 17 and 20 miles per day with 45 minutes to 1 hour of yoga. So let it be written, so let it be done!!
And today I start a fast from alcohol! I need to be hyper-productive in President Trump fashion for the next month, so I am taking off from the martinis for at least one week, likely more.
That is all for my Monday report. Have a beautifully productive week, peeps!!!!!!!!!
