Weekly Reflection 2018 – 05

How I got Stronger this week: This was a weird week because I got on an airplane on Wednesday night and got off the airplane Friday morning in Sydney so I lost a day this week (I get to have it back next week when I fly back.) But even with that, I still exercised everyday that I wasn’t on an airplane. Even while here in the hotel. I’ve also started Yoga while I’m here. I’ve spent time with the kids this week, helping them work. I’ve been doing what needs to be done at work. And I’ve showed up for my husband and my friend.

Top Goals Review:  figured out details. connecting with coworkers. finished whole30 yay! didn’t quit yet. reading a lot. got lunches done and made sheet for jake! woot!

I celebrate: being here in sydney and getting to spend a little time on the beach.

I am grateful for: my husband who is taking care of everything at home, making it possible for me to be here and trust that all is ok.

Karen’s Points: I got full points until the end of January. Now that I am off whole30 and not at home, February hasn’t been as diligent. I plan to restart when I am home.

A Change I embraced:  yoga here in hotel room was fun. 

I let go of:  reacting to the way some interactions have been at work. I’ve just been taking it easy.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: new adventures this week with a weekend alone in sydney.
  • Magical: This week’s magical moment is being so close to the water. it’s my soul place. 
  • Lighter: i am really enjoying the summer in sydney.
  • True: i’ve stayed true to my values and kept mum.

Where I chose Joy: i chose to go to the beach and hear the waves splash. joy joy joy.

I showed up for: my friend, my husband, and my son this week. 

A Mistake I made this week: Nothing wild is coming to my mind at this moment.

What I tolerated this week: a 15-hour flight. a weekend alone. while it’s lovely here it’s also really lonely without my boys. 

My mood this week was: grateful. a bit worried but trying to keep things in perspective.

I forgive myself for: not getting as much done this weekend. I chose to read and relax instead.

What I love right now: I love resting in bed while I am pretty jet lagged.
