Capturing the uncaught mind : This technique comes from the Buddhist tradition for Yoga.
This is a good technique to use for 15-20 minutes before a meditation session, especially if you are having trouble calming the mind. I find it very useful on days when my mind is incredibly active and resisting meditation. Technique: * Relax the entire being and slow the breath *
Begin to focus upon the pauses between each inhalation and exhalation * Start counting each cycle of inhalation and exhalation as one count * Count each cycle from 1-7, then start back at one and count from 1-14, then starting back at one, count each cycle from 1-21, and so on….increasing each time by 7 counts *
If at anytime the mind interferes and you forget which count or which cycle you are one, then start again 1-7, 1-14, and so on. The purpose is not to see how many counts you can get, but it is to still the mind and focus upon the pauses between inhalation and exhalation.
The counting is merely a tool to keep the mind focused and calm. You may find that some days you struggle to complete the first round of seven, this is just fine. Do not get discouraged. With constant practice you will find that you are able to complete more and more rounds and eventually you may not need this technique anymore.
After you feel that your mind is in a calm state and you would like to move into another form of meditation focus on stabilizing the captured mind. * Keep yourself in a state of neutrality, having non-reaction to thoughts. Detach from thoughts completely.
Do not feel unhappy if there are no thoughts, or disappointed if there are thoughts. * Use the witness consciousness – the stillness that exists behind every thought and action. This is the background of awareness where thoughts are coming and going. Stay in the awareness of the awareness itself~

This is me headstanding next to a two foot wide, hip high pile of clothes that don’t fit. It’s INSANE how small changes can make such a huge impact.. and how if I didn’t make those small changes, I would not be taking a huge leap and going through yoga teacher training in less than two weeks. I would never have experienced how awesome running where ever my heart desires is. I am in the happiest spot, and my last minute decision to cleanse my closet set in stone how much hard work pays off. As a lover of meatballs and ice cream, if I can do this, so can you. #positivity #happiness #healthy #iamaboss #youareaboss #weareallboss πŸ’«πŸ’–

Ab progress.  Not crazy but it’s crazy for me. I’m really happy with myself lately and it’s awesome.

First- my cat is guarding my pistachio bag and whenever I reach in to grab one, he nudges me and makes me pet him first. He’s a little genius.

Second- I feel so good about myself lately. I’ve been keeping up with my health in my YAY book and it’s really helping. I finally ventured off to the big girl machines and god damn, those sure work me to the point where I’m shaking out the door. I notice more and more some serious ab muscles, under a little layer of fat. I’ve been doing everything I can do try to lose it, but lately, I’m so happy with myself that if I do lose it and my muscles are visible, I’ll be happy. But just knowing how strong I am and am becoming is fine with me. That realization I’ve had with myself lately has taken such a negative weight off my shoulders and it’s awesome. I exercise daily, I eat pretty clean. So if I want to spontaneously get wings and waffle fries with my boyfriend, I’m gonna do it. And if that means no visible 6-pack, then whatever. LIFE IS TOO SHORT (message of the week, I’ve never meant it harder in my LIFE).

But if a 6-pack magically appears while I’m still eating occasional wings, ice cream, and waffle fries, then all the cooler.

My grandpa told me that all this yoga I’ve been doing has made me glow. I think he meant it as I’m radiating positive energy, but if I’m glowing like a little ball of sunshine, that works!!

Now I’m going to watch Bob’s Burgers, eat pistachios, and drink tea in bed while my cat continues to guard the bag.
