I realized this morning that the reason I worry so much about others and always want to be so inclusive is that I often am or feel excluded.
For breakfast I ate:
Rolled Oats with quinoa, peanut butter, banana, agave
Jasmine tea with agave
Silent breakfast is actually a wonderful thing. Especially after a morning Gentle Yoga class. It really gives me a chance to reflect on what is going on.
I woke up quite stiff. The mattresses here are not the best. It isn't unusual for me to get a little lower back/hip pain when sleeping elsewhere. I also think that I possibly stretched something wrong during yesterday's afternoon yoga class. I was definitely feeling some stiffness/pain after my massage.
Morning yoga helped. At home I would never get up and go to a 6:30 AM yoga class. The difference here is I only have to get dressed and go downstairs. Driving somewhere would be too much effort.
This morning I have two more hours with Geneen Roth. I feel like I have already gotten a lot out of this retreat. Mostly because it's a retreat. She isn't saying anything different than her books really. The difference is I am able to focus on myself 100% and that is a rare thing.
I do need to learn to eat slower. I am getting better, but I have noticed that when I finish eating I don't always feel full, but 10 – 15 minutes later, I feel FULL.
