Weekly Reflection 2018 – 24

How I got Stronger this week: This was a good week for exercise and a mostly good week for eating healthier. I got a medium amount of work done but I wasn’t as productive as i would have liked. Mentally I am still not in the best place which is definitely having an effect on my ability to want to be stronger or show up in a way I’d like. I wish there was a way to snap out of it so that I could just do that.

Top Goals Review: i got the sessions somewhat organized,  i didn’t really focus on allyship but i did catch up a bit. I exercised daily and ate reasonably well, i did more self care than usual and slept well. i didn’t focus on summer plans much so i will have to do that either next week or after the trip.

I celebrate: I celebrate first week of summer with my boys.

I am grateful for:  the gym at work. it’s been helping me take chances and try new classes, i am really grateful for that.

Karen’s Points: I exercised each week day, Monday I did both some cardio (running, rowing, stairs) and then took a body shred class which nearly killed me, Tuesday and Wednesday I did Body Pump (and a bit of elliptical on Wednesday), Thursday I did a HIIT class which also nearly killed me. Friday I did Body Pump again. My breakfast and lunches were mostly healthy and focused on nutrition. Dinner is a bit more challenging still. 

A Change I embraced: transitioning to summer involved driving nathaniel back and forth a lot this week, it’s been challenging, but also wonderful to see how much he’s enjoying himself.

I let go of: being able to get everything I had in mind done.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: the two classes were fresh and showed me that i can do them (even if they nearly kill me)
  • Magical: seeing nathaniel’s camp has been very magical
  • Lighter: not feeling very light lately, life is well but my head is really not well
  • True: truth is that i am still struggling more than I would like

Where I chose Joy: i spent several days working at home in my back year this week and it was wonderful

I showed up for:  nathaniel this week and jake since they left early 

A Mistake I made this week: some major procrastination this week which wasn’t great

What I tolerated this week: a lot of blah.

My mood this week was: distracted. 

I forgive myself for: being where i am, i am a work in progress.

What I love right now:  that i am about to see my nephews so very soon.
