the “eyes” have it…

i’ve been pretty nonexistent this last month, as you may have noticed.

oops.

long story short, my eyes decided to mutiny and i spent the better part of may struck down with ridiculous migraines and annoyingly doubled vision.

as a result, the only thing i could manage was to just barely crawl through my desk job responsibilities (which has me staring at a computer screen for 8+ hrs a day) and some days, i couldn’t even manage that.

but, enough of that pity party parade.

my eyes are on the mend, my head is (mostly) pain free, and i am so ready to get this show back on the road.

over the next coming weeks, watch this space (!) for more awesome posts and fun adventures to be had!

there may even be a few surprises on the horizon.

but you didn’t hear it from me.

welcome summer! it’s about time you got here!

a good stretch…

i’m ashamed to admit that my personal daily yoga practice has been pretty non-existant these last few months.

sometimes, life is rough and the last couple years have been no exception. unfortunately, instead of turning to the mat, i turned away from it and spend a lot of time curled up in a pile of blankets and ignoring all of my problems.

things have finally begun settling down however, and i find myself missing the ritual of a daily practice.

so, to remedy this, i began searching for an online/at home yoga class that i could take even on days when i couldn’t get myself to the gym and i came across http://www.dailyom.com and subsequently, sadie nardini.

because i am so out of practice and out of shape, i decided to go with her 21 day beginner class.

i’m excited to get started again, which i plan to do, bright and early before work tomorrow morning.

apart from getting me up and out of bed when i’ve become accustomed to laying there until the last possible minute, starting my day off with a ritual and a workout gives me something to look forward to so i can start my work day stress free and clear headed.

hopefully, it won’t take too long to get back into the swing of things, and even if it does, i suppose that’s all part of the process, isn’t it?
