JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 357 :: lemon-aid

22 Dec

Day 357: Water.

The Yoga Shred has me all lemoned out.

I forgot about how much I love hot lemon water. I love it. Really, I do. It’s refreshing and – BONUS – detoxifyin’ too.

So there. Shred on. Drinking my lemon water. Feeling all yoga cleansed. Now… can I have some chocolate?? I earned it, right? Right. On.

You can join the Shred course here.
Namaste, Lemon Water. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 345 what’s holding you back

10 Dec

Day 345: The list. 

It’s on. A 21-Day Yoga Shred. Today is officially Day 1.

And with it comes questions. Many, many questions. Primarily, what is holding you back? What are the tope 10 obstacles that keep you from total detox? Like… what is your biggest hurdle to being light and free?

For me, it’s a Top Ten list of the usual suspects.

  • Sugar
  • Stress
  • Note enough sleep
  • Stress
  • Caffeine
  • Stress
  • Not enough water
  • Stress

See a theme? Me too.

So tonight I am making my list of obstacles. And what it would take to overcome them. Or turn them around.

Care to join me?

Want more? You can join the course here.
Namaste, Shredding. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 242 the big hurrah

5 Sep

Day 242: Thank you.

Ah… and here we have the real, grand finale. The final note on the entire Lake Powell Trip…

Mike & Lizette.

Together they could fly a plane across the world, rescue an alpine skier from the top of Mount Everest, navigate a gargantuan houseboat through the water of Lake Powell, feed and shop for 10 people who drink like 20 people, drive a ski boat pulling a haphazard crazy wild bunch of humans called “relatives”, and, most important, do it all with a smile on their faces.

There are no words to say thanks big enough to Mike & Lizette. So, instead, I will say what yoga has taught me to say when there are no other words to describe the feeling of thanks, gratitude and love.

Namaste. The divine light within me salutes the divine light within you.
And…We all love you two!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 200 :: my calming place

25 Jul

Day 200: Water.

Happy Monday. Sometimes just remembering the place that makes me calm, makes me calm. Like this….

Ah…..

What makes you calm?
Where is your calming place?

Yoga done.
Bed is calling.
What’s calling you?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 89 :: a little light goes a long way

30 Mar

Day 89: Calm waters. 

Since we moved to the PNC I have never seen the water this calm in the bay. So, this morning as I walked towards the smell of coffee (Woods Coffee on the boardwalk) I had to stop and take in the view. And some photos too.

Yoga is up next… but first, some pretty blue photos.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 88 :: waterfall 

29 Mar

Day 88: Gravity. 

Through a walk in the forest today I was reminded about gravity. As in waterfalls.

Water goes where gravity takes it. Carving out a path without second-guessing, without hesitation, without pushing back. It just is where it is, whenever it is, how it is, passing by the scenery, falling to the earth, and then moving on.

Such a good reminder.
To be like water.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

2014 BLOG – DAY 49 :: drinking hearts

18 Feb

I think I spent too much time in the sauna. I intended to stay inside for fifteen minutes but it felt so warm and so cozy (albeit dripping, sweaty wet) that I stayed too long.

Like almost a half an hour.

When I finally left the sauna I stopped at the water fountain to replenish my body.

There was a heart.
In the water fountain.  

Maybe it was a reminder to take care of my body.
Maybe it was just a natural occurrence, two beads of water melded together into a heart-shaped drop of water.

Or maybe it was a reminder to drink more water.
For my heart.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 287 :: the synergy of water

14 Oct

In keeping with my promise to seek abundance, here’s my Abundance Photo of the Day…. it’s water.

Yup. Water. Agua.

I had a spa treatment today and was instructed to drink a lot of it before arriving.  The treatment was called Synergy. It’s a vacuum for the cellulite under your skin. And it comes with a Wonder Woman suit.

Seriously.

After I signed in for my appointment I was greeted with a full body Lycra suit to change into. It was shiny and white, and actually super comfortable – like yoga pants for the entire body.

All I needed was a cape and I could have been a comic book hero.
Pop! Pow! Whirl! The Adventures of Spa Girl!

The Synergy treatment felt relaxing, like a little vacuum running up and down your skin, minus the tread marks that are left in my carpet.

Afterward I was instructed to drink a lot of water, again.
So I’ve been drinking all day. And going to the bathroom. And drinking more water.

It’s a privilege really. Clean water. Right out of my faucet.

Contrast that to this:
According to Water.org

  • Women spend 200 million hours a day collecting water
  • Over 700 million people don’t have access to clean water. 
  • 3.4 million people die each year from a water related disease. 

And all I do is turn on a river flowing through my faucet, right into my sink. Like magic. It’s an act of daily abundance that I take for granted.

Now excuse me… I have to drink more water.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}

BLOG – GIFT DAY 147 :: 30 days of love: love where you are

27 May

It’s DAY 17 over here of the 30 Days of Love. We’ve already had two yummy recipes and a week-long Giveaway, some treats, a sneeze, some wise words to the Class of 2013, some news, a Pop Quiz, 3 things I love, a biopsy, a call to say what you need to say, a prayer, a choice, and now…
A reminder.It’s Memorial Day. The sun is out, the breeze is rolling by and people in towels and bathing suits are dotting the beach.Even though I’m not ready to jump into the freezing ocean water, I am taking it all in.We leave our little beach cottage by the ocean in a matter of days. We’re headed west. Moving to Oregon. We will be closer to mountains than this salty sea air.There’s so much to appreciate about both.

But, I for one, am grateful for this winter by the sea. 

This winter has, in its own unique way, been amazingly terrifying. 

We evacuated the house three times (on my insistance) before hurricanes and blizzards ravaged the beach, tore down our stairs, and left many houses down the street condemned.

On the inside, I have also been dealing with the perfect storm, a health matter, biopsy, and medical procedures relating to the cancer treatment I had 20 years ago.

But it has also been amazingly beautiful. 

I have a new appreciation for the ocean. The massive body of water that I am afraid of, has become like a friend. One I share mutual respect for its power, its energy and its life force.

The ocean is alive. A moving, ever-changing being.

From the baby seal that washed up in the fall.

To the lobster boats that fish off the rocky shore. I have newfound respect for  this massive body of water. It’s home to so many, and sustenance to us all.

As I have watched all the houses dotting the street rebuild and refurbish after the storm, I have also found deep respect for my own body: for its power, its energy and its life force to rebuild and renew.

And it reminds me that we can always begin again. Start over.

As we pack the car and start to move WEST, searching for our own little spot on this earth called “home” — I find deep solace and relief knowing that we are already there.

No matter where we plant our chair.

Home is all around us.

Love where you are, when you are there. 

Happy Memorial Day.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie
{Live on.}

Day 87: life’s a beach

27 Mar

Today I packed my bag, took the afternoon off and headed to the beach.

With our dear friend, Karen, in town I had the perfect reason (excuse!) to go sit on Naple’s sandy beach and soak in the sun.

As we sat on the beach, dripping with sweat in the sweltering 80-degree sun, I started daydreaming by making plans in my head for tomorrow’s breakfast. Yummy omelets, fresh fruit and a perfect view overlooking the water popped into my head.

I began telling Karen about this fabulous restaurant just down the beach where you can sit outside and enjoy breakfast, and if you’re really lucky, see dolphins jumping in the Gulf.

Just then, Karen pointed at the water and said, “Aren’t those dolphins?”

“Well, yes.  Those are dolphins,” I said, confirming the fins breaking in the water in front of us.

As I shook my head in amazement at the dolphins impeccable timing and manifestation, I thought, “I guess we don’t need to go out for breakfast in the morning since the dolphins are right here, right now.”

There have been times in my life where this sort of occurrence seemed ironic, random, or otherwise uncanny.

I used to question it.
But, I don’t anymore.

Because, life really is a beach, as long as you want it to be.

And, I’ve found, that’s right about the time that “dolphins” show up, jump for joy and remind me how to play in the water.

By the way, I jumped in — three times!
Now, that’s progress.
