In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I have created this Celtic knot necklace!
Celtic knots have various meaning so they can be interpreted in different ways. I prefer to view a Celtic knot as a symbol of eternity and the cycles of life continuing on. Available at Miss Val's Creations.
So I have not been to the gym in quite a while since I have a day job and come home heading straight into my home office to work on my jewelry business! But a couple of weeks ago I was struggling with the groceries. This was a wake up call!!!! Since going to the gym eats up extra time I am now squeezing in a yoga workout after work via youtube.
I came across these Power Yoga segments which are fantastic and challenging. There are three 30 minute Power Yoga segments I have been practicing. A lot of swears come out of my mouth while attempting the stand on 1 leg and contort your body positions! I certainly can not manage the position shown here from the video clip. My hands can not touch this way! However I now have a new goal of mastering these positions and becoming strong again!!!! This is the first time since my teen years that I have done a backbend. It feels completely unnatural and like my body could break at any moment!
I have always been a weight lifter and really miss the arms I had last summer. But yoga is a smarter way to take care of the body so it will be interesting to see what my arms will look like by this summer! I just do not want them to end up jacked like Madonna’s arms which are a bit too much for my frame.
I have always wanted an inversion therapy bench, particularly now since I am sitting 95% of my waking hours! This is a cool piece of equipment that you hang upside down on. It is a holistic way of reducing back pain, stress, tension, stretching your spine, improving posture, improving circulation and more!
It is recommended to hang upside down for 10 minutes a day but it does hurt my feet and ankles since they are basically holding my entire body weight. So I try to do this a couple of times a day until my ankles can no longer bear it. It feels fantastic and paired with yoga will help me reduce stress and muscle tension that I experience!
I am shocked my crocuses popped up before St. Patrick’s Day!
Mother Nature is acting very erratic this year. She could use a dose of Prozac. I even had all the windows in my house open after work 2 days this week and I live in Massachusetts!
New Bali Findings
I received a large shipment of Bali sterling silver findings which I have finally finished posting! These ear wires and toggles are new inventory in my shop.
However these beautiful ear wires sold out right away! Next order I will need to order many more of this style. They are unique and super shiny.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful, hopefully Spring like week!
