I have my plane tickets, my boat tickets, and my amazing friends waiting for me to accomplish this in about one month. I am so very excited. Lets hope there are less leeches than last time I backpacked in the U.P. 13 months ago
How I did it: I arbitrarily decided one day that I was going to run a half marathon on my (weekend) birthday this year. Make it memorable, right? Anyhow since I had that date picked it was simple to decide between the two races that were within reasonable distance of me. I picked the one that was more scenic/rural & less crowded... because I didn't need to worry about parking before worrying about running a half marathon.
I have been working from home recently and it is so hard to retain focus. So I have decided to Refocus on Focus! :D
A daily goal list appeals to me, and I am going to go make one after I am done typing this in the format shown on this blog: http://cornflowerbluestudio.blogspot.com/2012/02/diy-rotating-goal-list.html
On that daily goal list: Set up my FREAKing desk. Ugh, how can I focus on the bed? lol. I will check back in after a week, to see what has helped/what has not! 14 months ago
How I did it: I kept on giving at least $100-200 per month, more if i had some $ to spare. It was a slow process since I had minimal income, and would get set back where I would have to start using my card again to help pay for a move, but the persistence paid off as I am now in the GREEN (or black, whatever.) !!! Read how I did it… 15 months ago
This goal has been on my list for a while, and as I looked at it today I wondered what the heck I was waiting for? So today I made my first loan to Eunice in Mumias, Kenya so she increase he molasses production to support her family. Awesome, I am excited to finally get started with this. 15 months ago
I have been meaning to make a tee shirt quilt for a while, but without a template have little faith in myself. Instead I have started using the format of this “Scrap Vomit” quilt – http://imagingermonkey.blogspot.com/2010/10/care-for-some-scrap-vomit-aka-quilt.html with my tees. My initial goal is to fish in the next 4 month! 15 months ago
1. List how your pets will be taken care of during the day – THEY CARE! While most other companies are like – “What, they are not children? Who cares?”
2. You have to be a Vegan while working at PETA (right?)
3. Name dropping your crazy animal welfare twitter account in your cover letter – totally legit. 19 months ago

I fell off the proverbial mat last week when I went home for a friends wedding. there was so much going on and I felt obnoxious having to “insist” to do yoga even though I was supposed to be around others and visiting/driving to visit people at all times.
Oh well, I will officially restart today with yoga for runners: http://www.fitsugar.com/Yoga-Runners-Video-Explanation-14921385 21 months ago
I think this is day eight. in the last 5 days I have done some weird sessions…
-A yoga for runners that was super complex. They should know my legs wont bend like that, and give me an alternate
- Poor night time yoga youtube video, which searching for lead to the discovery of “Sexy yoga” on youtube, ugh.
-Randomly stretching my back to different poses researched online
-& sun salutations when everything seems to get out of hand
Today though I checked out netflix instant for some videos and the women who instructs “Yoga for Health: Basic” is the most calming person I heard online. I want a recording of her telling me to relax for my flight latter tonight. 21 months ago
after missing a day because of a crazy driving schedule/being lazy sleepy I have my routine from last night and this morning.
Evening Wind Down from YogaToday (12min): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zohLERGZ-U
Morning Flow from Yogatic (9.5 min): http://www.yogatic.com/yoga-video/morning-flow/
I know I have been doing some very short sessions – but I am still warming up to it. Something is better then nothing, right? And really I just want to make this a routine, and I feel like I can still do 10 mins of yoga and not be late to work – but 20 is pushing it. I should do some evening yoga earlier and get to sleep on time so I can wake up early again! 21 months ago
In the spirit of the 30 day challenges (check out this TED talk!: http://www.ted.com/talks/matt_cutts_try_something_new_for_30_days.html ) I want to challenge myself to do yoga. I have taken quite a few classes before, but find practicing by my own broke self very challenging. My back has been feeling funny though… and I will be sleeping on a plane and a backpacking mat soon, so:
My day one resource comes from a quick google search of morning practices. It is a good video, with alto of kneeling and standing poses. I think the sun salutation left me off balance though. http://www.yogajournal.com/video/53 21 months ago
