Hello again and welcome to my round up of March and see what’s been happening with The Holistic Toolkit:
A- Z Blog
In the “A to Z Blog Series” about how Reflexology can help with common ailments, I blogged about the letters E and F.
Click on the links below for each in case you missed one.
If you follow my CrossFit progress you will have known that my own aim for this years Open was to do 2 of the workouts RX (as prescribed) and I managed 3 of them so I’m very happy with that.
Read all about it here in this blog.
Most of all though I had fun over the last 5 weeks during this Open. Fun with my own workouts, fun watching the announcements and after shows, and fun cheering and encouraging our own community in CrossFit Galway.
CrossFit for me is about 3 things for me:
-Doing the best I can and being the best version of myself in the workouts.
-Setting myself little personal goals and slowly moving towards ticking off those goals
-Having fun in the community with the encouragement I give and get in our gym and the friendships I’ve made because of it.
So honestly it doesn’t matter where I finish on the leader board, as long as I know that I can continue to have these 3 things I will continue to turn up to my CrossFit class.
New York City
For St Patrick’s weekend I went to New York for 3 nights with some colleaguses from my day job and without making you completely jealous I had an excellent if a bit hectic time.
Like I said before in a previous blog about been in New York (click here) its very hard to be practice mindfulness in the city that never sleeps. But I managed it atleast afew times when was I there.
Taking a few minutes to breathe and soak in the sun rays from the beautiful and quiet(ish) Central Park.
Watching the sun rise on an almost empty Brooklyn Bridge.
Taking in the vast and beautiful views from the top of the Empire State Building by night.
In the city that seems to never sleep it can be easy to get caught up in that, but its very important to remember there are always places to go and its ok to just sit back, reflect and take it all in.
This month I read:
I found My Tribe – by Ruth Fitzmaurice
I only fully completed one book this month, which I highly recommend this one. Such an inspirational and deeply personal memoir of her life with her young family and how they coped with her husbands illness. Beautifully written and one that will stay with me for a while. Be warned I both laughed out loud and had tears rolling down my face with sadness at different parts. Let me know if you have read it.
So that’s it, March is done and dusted, thanks for reading and I hope you had a great one too.
