Transform Your Life Project 2.0: Week #15 & 16

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I watched another week come and go and just like that; we are more than halfway through April!  Where did the time go?!  Yesterday I was going to sum up week 15, but today I decided that I will not only talk about last week.  I am going to get ahead for next week too!  This is the 1st time in the history of my projects that I have written my weekly post early.

Week #15:

I felt very good overall about last week!  I continued my break-up with coffee, stuck with teas, and did not feel exhausted!  I also attended class every day and made myself a breakfast of oatmeal, eggs, and fresh fruit.  Additionally, I ate healthier meals and started exercising at home.

I created a to-do-list for myself, but was a little stuck and only completed the work that was outstanding.    I also had a doctor’s appointment for my cough and she prescribed a maintenance inhaler and a nasal spray.  I reluctantly picked it up because I do not like to take medicine.  I am currently looking into more natural remedies and preventative measures that I can take.  Overall, going to the clinic was not a very comfortable experience for me.  I prefer to stay healthy.

I had a wonderful ballet class on Saturday, but had a strange incident in our household that evening that shook me up a little.  Also, I woke up with an eye irritation on saturday that I hoped would go away with time.

Week #16:

On Sunday morning I brought my roommate a birthday coffee and made her cupcakes.  It was fun.  I can’t remember the last time that I made cupcakes!!! I know that it wasn’t the healthiest option, but since it was Easter I figured it was an additional reason to get festive.

This week has honestly been so strange and I have been feeling very anxious and uneasy.  I had some flashbacks from my past.  I guess it is just a form of PTSD that has come back to haunt me a little.  I was also disproportionately worried about my cat.  I noticed that she slept all day and seemed lethargic.  I got her some food and I may still take her to the vet, but I think that I just overreacted.  She seems to be fine now.  I was so worried and consumed by my concern, but I think it might of been another instance of me needing something to worry about.

My nutrition has been garbage this week and I missed some classes at school due to appointments.  I feel behind in Chemistry and am overwhelmed.  Last night I talked with a consulting nurse about my eye and today I have an eye exam.  They recommended that I stay home from school just in case it is contagious.  This week I missed a lab, a chem lecture, and an important dance workshop in which we got our final group project assignment and formed groups.  I feel like garbage for missing it.  Thankfully, I made good friends in the last quarter and they wanted me to be in their group.


 

April:

Challenge Yourself

Do what you must and do it with ALL your heart.
Learn a new language and/or expand on what you have learned so far.
Train a little harder.
Wake up a little earlier for an early start.


My current goal is to work on my state of mind.  That no matter how crazy my life or world is.  Even if I am surrounded by tragedy I want to learn how to be okay.

The next time that I feel stressed of overwhelmed I will remind myself:

“Everything’s gonna be alright.”

I hope you are all enjoying your week!!!  

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

  1. We sometimes have good weeks and less good weeks… the week before I trained at the gym 3 times! And this week I only went 1.5 times. But I did have 2 classes of belly dance… But as on Sunday I have a family thing going on, I feel like I don’t want to go anywhere today, especially not the gym. Feeling a bit guilty though… But at least I’ll have the time to clean the house a bit and work on my bullet journal. Life is about priorities haha! Have a lovely weekend Alana!! xoxo Sarah

    1. Even though you didn’t make it to the gym 3 times you still got three great workouts in!
      I can definitely relate to not wanting to go out. Thankfully I went grocery shopping yesterday and wrote myself a menu. Staying in will also give me some much needed study time. I will be honest, with all that has been going on, I have been neglecting my studies and feel behind, but I am trying not to stay down because it is still only week 3.
      You don’t have to feel guilty about not going to the gym today. See if you can spend even just 15 minutes doing a couple of exercises at home. And cleaning the house and journaling sounds lovely!
      Take care Sarah!

  2. Key is probably to forgive ourselves and continue. Indeed, there are many things in life and we all do the necessary to survive and go through those moments. So we don’t always spend our time in the perfect way we’ve planned it out. But it doesn’t make it bad either. As long as we pick up where we’ve left it and continue and keep going…
    I ended up having an argument today with the BF, so I went training for an hour. It appears that when angry you get a rush of energy, because I trained all of my frustration out haha. I wasn’t even angry anymore afterwards… The cleaning shall be for tomorrow :D. ❤ ❤ Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah!
      Yes, though not easy at times, forgiving ourselves is the key. Without it, I find myself in this loop of shame and guilt and it is hard to learn in that state.
      I love that you made it to the gym and were able to work out your frustrations. Arguments really suck, but the energy we get from the anger can be tremendous. Great job on channeling to a healthy outlet and making it work for you!!!! GET IT GIRL!!!!
