Weekly Reflection 2018 – 22

How I got Stronger this week: I decided enough was enough after wallowing all weekend so I went back to the gym at work this week and worked out every day both at home and at work, except Friday when I worked out at work twice. I took a Barre class, two Body Pump classes, one Yoga, and one Pilates. I also did the Tabata at home. I ate no sugar until Friday when I had a very small amount which was likely in my vinaigrette dressing. I ate three meals with no snacks in between except for one piece of cheese or carrots. I tried to be reasonably disciplined about drinking a lot of water. I tried to sleep as much as possible and I worked pretty hard when awake. I also took personal time on Wednesday to get my hair done. I went to support Nathaniel for his culmination. I took some of Friday off to take care of myself and do logistical stuff. I did my best to show up this week and get myself on to a more positive cycle. I am proud of what I did. I have a long way to go but I made progress.

Top Goals Review: the pm summit is still changing a bit of course but hopefully ready-ish. here’s to hoping it goes well. i did a tiny amount of self work but i did eat better and i exercised. went to nathaniel’s culmination, hugged david all day when he got back from his trip, and spent time watching movies and hugging Jake.

I celebrate: I celebrate going back to the gym, my favorite teacher was so kind and so excited to see me that it was huge joy. 

I am grateful for:  feeling sore all over again, getting myself into a better cycle, my husband’s unbounded kindess. 

Karen’s Points: exercised, did tabata, ate better, i am making progress.

A Change I embraced: it was super hard without david this week. i missed him so so so much.

I let go of: postponing and just started showing up

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: exercise baby. i am hoping to go even further next week crossing fingers.
  • Magical: magical to have the love of my husband.
  • Lighter: feeling lighter finally, not light but lighter, thanks to my husband and the gym
  • True: truth is that this will be a process and i am hoping i will keep at it

Where I chose Joy: friday morning at the gym was especially fun thanks to Molly!!

I showed up for:  myself this week.

A Mistake I made this week: i was a bit too much in one of the meetings i had this week and worried a lot that i offended someone. i should have touched base with them ahead of time and i felt bad about that.

What I tolerated this week: soreness all over.

My mood this week was: better, calmer. 

I forgive myself for: waiting this long.

What I love right now:  the gym, the warm days, school almost being over, having david back!
