What would Tami do?
The “old” Tami would scrap the whole Yoga+Music365 project completely because it’s been a couple weeks since she’s posted anything and because she’s having a really hard time keeping up with the overly ambitious music schedule.
Good thing the “old” Tami has been quietly noticing her patterns and has come up with a new “plan”.
The daily music was INSANE. However, I’ve enjoyed finding new music. I’m still going to post about music, just not every day or every week. I’ll do it when the mood strikes me.
The “old” Tami would cry in her beer because she failed to keep up with even a one-pose-a-day yoga home practice when she was sick knowing legs up the wall can pretty much cure anything.
The daily yoga really does feel good. It also keeps me thinking about self-care on a daily basis. I’m going to get back to it.
The “old” Tami would wish that she would have never gone public with her blog and would have felt like a failure because she didn’t realize her goals.
As it turns out, a daily blog project is pretty ambitious. Probably too ambitious for someone with a full-time teaching job and bonus yoga teaching job etc.
The “old” Tami would feel bad about herself because she got sick despite taking really good care of herself.
What can I say? I don’t mess around when I get sick. I don’t know why I seem to get sicker and stay sick longer than others, but I do. I’m going to try to stop freaking out about getting sick and maybe I won’t so often. Who knows? I’m exhausted by it all.
The “old” Tami would be embarrassed that she isn’t going to do the half-marathon after all.
Getting sick made me reevaluate my purpose for the half-marathon training: to do cardio exercise on a regular basis. Check! Plus I met some truly wonderful women in the process that have expressed an interest in continuing to walk together. Bonus.
The “old” Tami would have brushed off the epic hormonal meltdown last month and not called her doctor – AGAIN.
My hormones make me feel like an angry teenager sometimes. Did I mention the ANGER? Yeah, so I called my doctor and I’m going to try some pills to make my hormones behave more civilly.
The “old” Tami would have not reached out to friends, but turned inward until she felt better.
I have really, really amazing friends. Thanks for all the support and love.
