Creating our ideal day is our focus. On Mondays we are living our dream. Mondays model how we want every day to be. It's all about balance for us.
My Morning Hour Of Power Ritual;
I use pranayama breathing techniques, then slowly I move into Tai Chi and Qi Gong. I'm new to this so I work at beginner levels. After 30 minutes of focused breathing and power mobility drills I challenge my kickboxing skills for 15 minutes then I kick my abs and body into shape for 12 minutes. I finish with 3 minutes of cool down breathing and 3D movement stretching. I have an hour to be as effective as possible.
Creamy Orange Smoothie- see tomorrows blog for recipe.
We went to Longleat Safari Park and House. FOR FREE! A perk of being an annual member and living so close. We love Longleat. We went last week too so this week we decided to get a coffee and chill out in the garden by the house. What an inspiring view! We explored and found a gorgeous spot to unwind. We had a few nosy visitors quacking away at us. After a good couple of hours of doing nothing we decided to head back for pizza.
Healthy Pizza time! Check out our previous blog post to see recipe. Tasty and healthy! BOOM!!!
Alice started her lessons earlier today and I had a couple of cancellations so I got to lie out on the grass at the gorgeous Combe Grove Manor whilst listening to U2, Oasis and Sam Cooke! Dare I say it..PEACEFUL. The weather couldn't make it's mind up but I could ..I wasn't moving come rain or shine!
Off to bootcamp for a cheeky core strength and cardio session. Hmm I think I may need to raise the game for Wednesday. Good efforts by my bootcampers but I don't feel I achieved the greatness that I set out to today. All in all a good day!
I'm shattered! Has the sun got the better of me today?
The morning rituals are incredible! I need to keep playing with that pizza recipe. I'm just wondering how we can create daily adventures. Back to the drawing board. The more organized we are the more opportunities that appear to live our ideal lifestyle.
Here's to loving life to the full,
