So here goes a short and sweet PBM because I need to put it out there how awesome this week has been and for all of the reasons that were once super wrong in my brain.
Physically: I have not worked out formally for an entire week as of today. Last Thursday I got off the treadmill and could feel the joint in my hip that tends to give me problems giving me pain for the first time in a very long time. So I decided it was a sign that the stress of working out was too much. Like I said working out should never be a chore and for the past two weeks it was because I was constantly trying to find a place to fit it in and it wasn’t working too well. My hip still hurts so I think I will stick to my rigorous routine of getting to my classes on time through the wind tunnel of a drillfield while simultaneously holding my skirt or dress down. Yes my friends that is real life exercise.
Mentally: Well I am just going to say it, I feel pretty awesome in most parts of my life. So far I am handling all of my commitments, making life fun (which for me folks is indeed school- sorry but it is who I am, I would much rather be in a classroom than out partying), and getting to bed at a reasonable time. I have also challenged myself quite a few times but I will save that for the brags.
Brag!!! sssssss. That’s right I have many but to name just a few: I meal planned. I have hated meal planning since my recovery (one day I finally got fed up with writing it all down because I knew subconsciously I didn’t need that anymore) and thus avoided it. But now I see where it can be super helpful as long as you are flexible. And I was! Speaking of flexible I didn’t look at the clock and let it decide my meals. I let my situation decide when I ate them. I ate dinner at 5:30pm one night people… that is unheard of for me but for once the rational side of me won and I knew getting home at 10:30 was too late for dinner and 5:30 was the only time I had. Ok we will keep it at an even 3 brags so last one, I made my first smoothie this week and my first soup in this AWESOME mini portable crockpot. Quick convenient and delicious for lunches folks. OMG.
Today is a pretty packed day. I love it y’all and wouldn’t have it any other way! Happy Thursday!
Thanks Hollie for the chance to brag!
