Fight Back

I am weak to mental attacks Who do your hurt when there is not one around Voices in my head Cracking Under the pressure of ill-content How do I fight back Where do I run to When I am my own enemy Self-doubt sets in And I am no longer in the running To win…

Day 1: 30 Days With Down Dog

Today, I started out doing my first day of down dog and it was far less stressful than I thought it would be. I set my session for 25 minutes and put it in restorative mode with no boost at all. I wanted to take it slow and I knew that my normal sessions were…

Fighting Beyond the Pain

The last few weeks have been pretty hard for me. There has been tremendous pain, overwhelming anxiety, and that no good bastard name depression. It hasn’t been easy, there were moments when I got so upset I just started throwing pillows. I really didn’t want to break anything but also needed to get my frustration…

Since last year November, I started to really work out. I had the awakening that for an overall healthier life I will have to…
