Inspiration of the day #40


We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. <…> Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know – unless it be to share our laughter.

Perfect body in 220 days / Part I

Who wants to be like jelly over their own wedding? Nobody! So today I finally decided to stop telling myself “I’ll start tomorrow” (you have no idea how many times I’ve said that phrase before). It’s really hard to begin, especially when you don’t know how to do this. Oh, I wish you’d have seen me! How funny it was – you just can’t imagine. I can’t stop smiling every moment I remember that. So let me tell you a little bit about my first attempt to exercise..

When I dressed in my sports clothes I looked like Paris Hilton – from head to toe hot pink, only much thicker. But it doesn’t matter – I still picked up a camera and made some photos before my exercises. “Not so bad!” – I thought. But that mind was only a few seconds in my head..

After a lengthy search from “which sport is the best”, “top 10 exercises for a sexy butt”, “how to get perfect beach body in 6 weeks” till “best workouts for your body type” I decided to try yoga. I always wanted to try it – perfect slim girl plastically moving on the sunny beach – what could be better or more sexy than this? There is no doubt I need yoga!

First step was to find great video on YouTube.. “Yoga for Beginners” – that’s what I’m talking about! I clicked the play button and my workout began.. Sit in the lotus posture - a soft voice came into my ears from the computer screen. Now take a long deep breathe… cross your  hands on the bottom of your foot – not so easy as I thought but still possible – sit up nice and tall when your leg stand out in front of you - nice and tall? I don’t think so, I looked awful and dumpy – if it’s normal you have tall back and straight leg – unfortunately,  it really wasn’t normal.. Breathe slow and deeprepeated the voice, but I was like a fish suddenly thrown on the shore trying anyhow to catch a breath.

“What is wrong with me?” – I asked myself after few (OK, maybe lots and lots of) fails. Nah..it’s not my fault – it’s wrong video! And I tried other one, then another.. but nothing has changed. Finally I was so wet as out of the shower despite the fact that I haven’t made any exercise correctly. Then I realized how much time and effort it will take if I want to look so damn pretty on my wedding day. But you know guys, I still have 220 days to reach this goal and I’ll, I promise you that!

So keep your ears and eyes open till my next post!

 

 

 

 

Inspiration of the day #38


All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.
