Vacation has a way of interrupting things

The link I have connected to this post is a study I came across through @RawNatureBoy on Twitter. It's an interesting read.

Okay, so I've been on vacation visiting my in-laws in Las Vegas since Thursday. We've been having a great time. I didn't walk the strip much this time around, the novelty of the strip wears off after like the 2nd or 3rd visit. But I have wandered the internal grounds of a few casinos. This obviously is not the level of physical exertion I have been putting in at home, but it's something......right? Yea, I think I'm just kidding myself, I've only gotten in one really good yoga session too. Mostly because every time I get on my mat I'm either directly interrupted by my little one or I can't focus on my own from all of the activity in the house. You see my daughter has the amazingly ability to wake up exactly 15 minutes after I have unless I wake up at 4:30 a.m. Right now I'm not quite disciplined enough to get up at 4:30a.m. while on vacation. Plus I really miss my class :( I miss my instructor and her guidance. I'm still in the infancy stage in my practice and I really need leadership. I don't yet feel confident that I am hitting all of my physical marks in a lone session. I know that spiritually I'll meet my needs, but it's not complete if the physical hasn't been met. So I've been reading my Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga to create more peace within myself as I try to supplement my yoga routine. I think it's been working too, I've started to gain this greater sense of clarity in my quest for what to do with the rest of my life. I believe that getting away from home and just relaxing has helped a little as well. But, I'm going to have to take this one step at a time. Which is really difficult because there are so many factors in where my next step comes from, yet so many decisions that have to be made before April is over. Sigh......I'm sure it will all work out. Maybe I'll take a week long Yoga Retreat (overlooking the water) to have my mind, body, and spirit all functioning at optimal level so that decisions are effortless.
