I have had a busy week, and next week is going to be even busier, as I’m leaving for Las Vegas tomorrow. I will return to the blogging world at the end of next week. In the mean time, here is a little update on what has been going on with me.
I tried my first yoga class on Monday. I have done yoga videos at home, but I have never gone to a class before. I really liked it. The yoga studio and the teacher were both wonderful. She talked a lot about being present and coming back to the breath. I’m definitely going to make yoga classes a regular thing.
I have also decided to start therapy. I have thought about it off and on since I started conscious eating almost a year ago. Conscious eating has been going smoothly for me for the last few months, but I feel like I need to do more to address the issues that led me to eat for emotional reasons. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my insurance covers therapy. My first appointment is a week from Saturday. I’m really excited about the therapist I found. When I told her that I follow intuitive eating, she said that was wonderful and that she likes intuitive eating because it is about mindfulness. How lucky am I to have found a therapist that embraces intuitive eating AND mindfulness?
