Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
How was your weekend? I had a good weekend and took both Saturday and Sunday off from working out. My new workout format is challenging and I am glad that I decided to rest and recover.
On Saturday afternoon, my heart felt so full. I am just a quarter and a half away from graduating!!! I will have to earn a few extra credits in the summer time to make up for the fall quarter that I got really sick. I get so emotional when I think about this. It has been a lifelong dream to earn my college degree.
On Sunday I felt a little restless. I worked on my internship project in the morning then decided to get out of the house in the afternoon. It seems like everyone was out and about running errands in the sunshine.
I had to remind myself that Sunday is my self-care day, but I kept putting it off. My heart felt a little sad and I noticed that I still eat my feelings sometimes… The extra fluff around my waistline has been my armor for the past decade and letting go can be hard. Soothing with food is a habit…
My choices are better than they used to be, luckily. I had popcorn, then later frozen yogurt with granola (not the best choice), then chipotle macadamia nuts that I had to hide from myself to keep from eating the whole thing.
I ran myself a matcha empsom salt bath with essential oils, but it was hard for me to fully relax. I think the water might have been a little to hot and my mind was racing. I am still glad that I made some time for me.
I bet that my racing mind had something to do with having coffee after not having it for 5 days. I needed a coffee this morning to help me feel more motivated to workout today. My chocolate mask was so decadent and warming.
What kind of self-care did you treat yourself to this past week? Please comment below to share!
