Self-Care Sunday #2

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I spent a majority of this weekend feeling fairly worn out.  I think it was a combination of stress and being that time of the month.  I chose to sleep in and to be gentle with myself.

I drove around for awhile in search of brunch and decided that I would rather cook brunch at home as long as I got an iced coffee.  I am so glad that I did.  It seemed like every single restaurant and breakfast joint in Scottsdale was jam packed!

I am proud of the progress I have made with my hash browns!

It was a yummy brunch and after that I spent a few hours working on my app!  The quarter is almost finished and I am excited because the company I am working for wants me to do another internship for spring quarter!

After studying, I went for a walk in the sunshine.  It was a beautiful day and everyone seemed to have the same idea of being out and about!

When I got home I organized my bathroom drawer.  It was starting to bug me.

Before (please ignore how gross the drawer looks.  I have scrubbed it and I cannot make it look clean.)

After!

Self-care is definitely organizing your life!

I wanted to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the sunshine, but there were a ton of people out in the pool area.  Hopefully soon I will be a little less shy.

I successfully rested from my workouts today which was good considering I worked out hard 6/7 days of the week.  I took my measurements and was disappointed that I went up in measurements since 2/17.  I am trying not to take this too hard.  I have not weighed myself since January and I am nearly positive that I have made progress with my body composition.  It can be very challenging mentally when the numbers do not go down, but I am doing my best to love myself the way I am right now.

It was a little bit like pulling teeth to get myself to relax, but I finally drew a bath with matcha epsom salt, essential oils, and a colorful bath bomb.  I lit my favorite candles and turned on some relaxing music.

It was hard for me to relax, but I know I will get there with practice.

How was your weekend and how did you make time for self-care this week?  Please comment below to share!
