Find or draw a small dot, 2-5 mm diameter and concentrate on it, just look at it without blinking, let go all the mental talk called thoughts. There's only the DOT in the whole Universe! After you finish the meditation, do some eyes exercises: look right and left, up and down, move your eyeballs clockwise and counter clockwise. Then gently wash your eyes.

After 2 weeks of the September training plan:

1. Meditation.

Extended from 5 to 10 minutes, as I usually need around 5 minutes to calm my mental clutter down so that in the following 5 min. I can actually focus on the meditation object (a dot).

2. Yoga in September.

a) First week I was doing one of the two versions of Sun Salutations. Feeling really good, mentally and physically, with these sets of asanas. I am going to include them in my future training plans.

b) Second week: Bury Your Roots. This workout hasn't felt that great this time. There are probably two reasons: I was not doing it systematically (moving home, changing jobs, very busy), so I didn't have enough regular practice; it's (too) difficult for now, so I need to practice more.

3. Wall Plank Challenge.

These first two weeks have been very easy, 20-90 seconds planks. Hope this warm up phase has built me some muscles necessary to keep the position for longer periods of time though. I will see whether this has happened very soon…

After the full month of the September plan:

3rd week was a constant catching up. 4th week till now (6.10)no planned workouts,just quite regular brisk walking. Not completely cured cold, catching another one,low energy levels. Plus new city,new company,a completely new industry… pretty energy sucking too.
Wall plank personal best:3 minutes.

06 Oct
Do what you can! Take care of that cold.

October training plan

1. Continue with Sierra's 10 Miles Walking a Week Challenge.
2. Do Beast Mode Camp Yoga in October.
3. Continue my Wall Plank Challenge with a goal of reaching a comfortable 4 minutes (being at very painful 3 minutes now).

That's all for this month.

25.10.2015 update:the only thing I'm actually doing is the walking challenge (more than 20 miles this week instead of 10!) and posting the yoga challenge pictures… My colds seem to be at bay luckily but energy levels still low (the new job related stress?). Well,I'm gonna continue doing what I can do,this month is not very fitness friendly for me.
