Nourish Me – 38

Mind:

  • I read: Nothing but books this week, barely even books.
  • I learned: I’ve been doing Stephanie’s Map Maker class still but haven’t begun the Courageworks class.
  • I watched:  We finished Ozark!

Body:

  • Exercise: I managed to do all 7 classes this week!
    • Monday: 7am Body Pump. 
    • Tuesday: 8am Body Pump (on my birthday nonetheless!)
    • Wednesday: Pilates and Cardio
    • Thursday: gBarre 
    • Friday: Body Pump Express and Pilates.
    • Saturday&Sunday: resting all weekend
  • Food: 
    • I functioned this week but Tuesday was my birthday and my sister is visiting so there’s be poorer food choices than usual. Overall I am still eating better than average. But I am hoping to do better next week anyway.
    • This week I stuck to peppermint tea only, too, so no caffeine besides the one coke zero I had a few of the days.
    • All the others: I’ve been still a bit less diligent than usual this week but still have been flossing, putting cream on, and taking my vitamins more often than not.

Soul:

  • I rested: Still having no trouble falling asleep but sleeping less than usual and I am exhausted and miss sleeping.
  • I connected: Connected with my sister and my friends from the kids’ school. 
  • I journaled: I did journal for MapMaker but not doing a lot of other journaling still. I honestly don’t know how to fit that in at the moment.
  • I made art: I did my last mapmaker homework.

So grateful for my progress, I have more shots on instagram though not that many since my sister came.

Nourish Me – 35

Mind:

  • I read: Outside of the books I’ve read this week, I haven’t done any other reading.
  • I learned: I’ve been doing Stephanie’s Map Maker class still! And I am on the fence on the courageworks class, especially since they are closing their doors by the end of this year.
  • I watched:  Still only one hour of TV this week.

Body:

  • Exercise: I came home from the trip and immediately went to work to make sure I was exercising!! I’ve been trying to introduce a new class each week, this week I did a new-to-me Vinyasa Yoga class and I went to a Sculpt and Abs class on Friday and it was crazy hard.

    • Tuesday: Vinyasa Yoga
    • Wednesday: Sculpt and Core and Mat Pilates
    • Thursday: gBarre 
    • Friday: Body Pump Express and Sculpt and Abs
    • Saturday&Sunday: resting all weekend
  • Food: Since we traveled this past weekend. Food was tricky. I tried to eat my best and for the most part I managed to do so. I snacked on others’ food a bit more than I would have liked to but otherwise i am pretty proud of how clean i ate. 
    • Veggies I had: butternut squash, spaghetti squash, eggplants, zucchini, celery, cucumbers, broccoli rice, artichokes, kale and spinach. 
    • Protein: chicken breasts, chicken sausage, buffalo meat and eggs. 
    • I am still not hungry between meals. But i am still eating my chocolate and i need to come up with a plan for it.

  • All the others: I’ve been a bit less diligent than usual this week. I will get back on the wagon. 

Soul:

  • I rested: Still sleeping strong unless I drink after 7pm. I’ve had all sorts of funny sleep last week, of course, but I am getting back on the saddle here.
  • I connected: Connected with family this week, it was awesome!
  • I journaled: I journaled only for mapmaker this week but i also started a simple daily journaling idea thanks to Stephanie Howell and I am so grateful to her (more on this later.)

So grateful for my progress, I have more shots on instagram.

Nourish Me – 34

Mind:

  • I read: It’s been a quiet week for reading. I’ve had long days and there’s been a lot of bad news so I’ve been watching CNN vs. reading, which is not great for my well being.
  • I learned: I’ve been doing Stephanie’s Map Maker class still! And looking for a new courageworks class, too I think.
  • I watched:  Still only one hour of TV this week, besides all the CNN.

Body:

  • Exercise: Another week of exercising!! I’ve been trying to introduce a new class each week, this week I did a CXWORX class which was ok but it was my third that day so I was exhausted.

    • Thursday: gBarre 
    • Friday: Body Pump Express and Mat Pilates

    • Protein: chicken breasts, ground buffalo, meatloaf, and eggs.

    • No coffee for six weeks now. Not craving it.
  • All the others: I’ve been flossing nightly, taking my vitamin C, and putting cream on. I’ve used my face masks a bit  and like my new side sleeping earplugs.

Soul:

  • I rested: Still sleeping strong unless I drink after 7pm. If I wake up to go to the bathroom it ruins my evening so I really need to not drink after 7pm.
  • I connected: Connected with an old friends at work this week which was great.
  • I journaled: I journaled a bunch! not as much as i would like but still!!
  • I made art: I did parts of my mapmaker homework!

  • I learned: I’ve been doing Stephanie’s Map Maker class and still have to do my August OLW.
  • I watched:  We watched Before I Fall, which I loved. And I’ve watched a few episodes of Suits but that’s it. Oh, and, A wonderful talk by Brene to Women@Google in Chicago. She is always so amazing.

    • I am still not hungry between meals. Often I am not even hungry for dinner.
    • No coffee for four weeks now. Not craving it.
  • All the others: I’ve been flossing nightly, taking my vitamin C, and putting cream on. I tried a face mask and already did it once, it was quite nice. I also bought a shake cup for potential travel coming in a few weeks. Trying something new here each week, too. I also got my hair Keratin done this week. I love it so. I also bought this as a reminder.

Soul:

  • I rested: Still sleeping strong. Some nights it’s a bit harder but I always fall asleep within minutes of going to bed. Waking up at 6am and exercising every day makes falling asleep super easy.  
  • I connected: Connected with my friend Caroline this week for a long time, it was wonderful. 
  • I journaled: I journaled almost every day! woot!!
  • I made art: I did my mapmaker homework!

So grateful for my progress, still and hoping it sticks.

Nourish Me – 31

Mind:

  • I read: I’ve still been conscientious about what I’m reading. Also spending very little time on facebook or any online anything to be honest.
  • I learned: just started Stephanie’s Map Maker class but haven’t done any of the homework yet. Did finish OLW for July. 
  • I watched:  Jake and I watched a few more episodes of The Billions and started a few movies but didn’t really finish any.

    • Protein: Tuna, chicken breasts, ground turkey, ground turkey, chicken sausage. 
    • I finally found chocolate, vanilla, cofffee and strawberry powder I like. So now I have a lot more variety. Here’s the vanilla one. and here are the others.

  • All the others: I’ve been flossing nightly, taking my vitamin C, and putting cream on.  I will try for some face things next week. I’ve also done some work on my feet:

Soul:

  • I rested: Still sleeping like a baby. 10pm to 6am daily, including weekends. Wearing and loving earplugs. Not drinking water 2 hours before bed helps me sleep through the night. I am so grateful for the sleep!
  • I connected: Connected with several friends this week. 
  • I journaled: I even journaled this week! A bunch on my own and a bunch for OLW!
  • I made art: maybe more craft than art, but did it for my OLW.

Nourish Me – 30

Mind:

  • I read: I abandoned more books this week and jumped ahead in my queue to read what I really felt like reading. I’m getting better at this.
  • I learned: nothing new to report here. 
  • I watched:  Jake and I watched a few more episodes of The Billions and I finished Designated Survivor.

Body:

  • Exercise: Woohooo, another week of exercising daily!! Here’s what I did:
    • Monday:Body Pump
    • Tuesday: Vinyasa Yoga
    • Wednesday: Pilates
    • Thursday: gBarre 
    • Friday: Vinyasa Yoga
    • Saturday: 5K Walk 
    • Sunday: 3K Walk (this is usually my rest day)
  • Food: Still doing great here, I cooked so much more food than I’ve ever had in my life! Here are some things I’ve prepped so I could have food all week:
    • Veggies: Zucchini, squash, eggplant, beets. I also cut celery, cucumbers, and had broccoli rice and spinach.
    • Protein: Petrale Sole, Chicken breasts, ground chicken, ground turkey. I also bought chicken sausage but haven’t had it yet. 
    • I tried the Chocolate Protein powder and it was terrible! At least for me 🙂
    • I loved Dates in my Fab4 but I know they are sugary so I shouldn’t really have one each day. I also love bananas. I will try new things this week.
    • I am still not hungry between meals. Often I am not even hungry for dinner.
    • No coffee for two weeks now. Not craving it.
  • All the others: Blood tests were good. I am still working on taking care of my teeth, my skin, my feet. Taking it one day at a time.

Soul:

  • I rested: Major progress here, too. The 10pm-6am works wonderfully still. On Thursday I even went to bed at 9pm so I could wake up at 5am and it was no problem. I’ve started wearing earplugs and using the light function of my alarm (my alarm has a light that slowly gets stronger, emulates the sun coming up.) I’ve been sleeping solidly.
  • I connected: No connecting with friends this week but I bought a ticket to go see Glennon with my friend in a few months, does that count?
  • I journaled: Doing pretty badly here. I think it’s cause I leave it to the end of the day, so I need to rearrange the time of this commitment. 
  • I made art: No art this week either. 

So grateful for my progress, still and hoping it sticks.


Nourish Me Week 2017 is a year-long project for 2017. You can read more about my projects for 2017 here.

Nourish Me – 29

Mind:

  • I read: I’m proud of myself this week, I’ve done less reading but spent more time moving and I didn’t read anything I really disliked. I abandoned three different books this week and still ended up finishing four. 
  • I learned: nothing new to report here. 
  • I watched:  Jake and I watched an episode of The Billions yesterday but nothing at all outside of that.

Body:

  • Exercise: I finally have some wonderful progress to report here. After all I wrote last week, I finally followed through on my goals and exercised every day this past week. After waking up at 5am on Monday and going to a local Barre3 place, I realized there probably were free classes at Google. And indeed there are hundreds of classes so after Monday, I drove to work everyday for a different exercise. This is also a fantastic way to try new things when I am stronger. Here’s what I did:
    • Monday: Barre3 Class
    • Tuesday: Vinyasa Yoga
    • Wednesday: Vinyasa Yoga
    • Thursday: gBarre (Google’s Barre class)
    • Friday: Body Pump Express
    • Saturday: 5K Walk with Nathaniel
    • Sunday: I wan planning on a rest day but ended up doing a 3K walk at the end of the day.
  • Food: I’ve also been doing a fantastic job here. We had a bad start on Sunday with the smoothies but then I ordered unflavored pea protein and I could totally drink it. So now I start my mornings with a Fab4 Smoothie and eat a ton of veggie bowls for lunch and dinner. I have been so incredibly full that I genuinely don’t snack (or have any desire to) between meals. Sometimes I’m so full by dinner that I have a smoothie or a small bowl instead. I still have 1 Coke Zero a day and sometimes a small square of chocolate. I find I don’t crave it or think of it as an indulgence because somehow I am genuinely not feeling deprived so far. We’ll see if things change but I am appreciating them so far. I started an instagram account where I keep track of everything I eat (for ideas later) and all the exercise I do. 
  • All the others: I’ve been to the dentist this week and also done a bunch of blood tests to see if I am all okay. I’m working on taking care of myself.  

Soul:

  • I rested: I’ve moved my sleep hours to be consistent 10pm-6am so that I set an alarm even on the weekend and don’t stay up past 10 even on the weekend. So far, so good. I don’t eat or drink anything past 7pm to see if it helps me sleep better and so far it’s going well.
  • I connected: I didn’t go to one book club but I did go to another. In fact, I drove to work to exercise, drove all the way back home to shower and go to book club, and then drove right back to work for a meeting. That’s how much I wanted to make the time to connect.
  • I journaled: I did some journaling but not as much as I would have liked. I’m still in catch-up mode at work so that’s not helping. I am planning to do some more this week and we’ll see if I can get into a groove there.
  • I made art: No art this week either. Though I have some plans for July OLW.

So grateful for finally some progress this week. With a lot of gratitude to Ali. And hoping it sticks.


Nourish Me Week 2017 is a year-long project for 2017. You can read more about my projects for 2017 here.

Nourish Me – 28

Mind:

  • I read: I’ve been reading a ton of books this year. As of right now I am reading my 160th book of the year. However, I think this reading is coming at a cost and I am starting to think that maybe there is such a thing as too much reading. I feel like reading is comfort food for my mind. It’s my easy go-to activity and I think that it’s stopping me from doing some of the things I wanted to do for myself. Like take online classes or even hang out with friends. I always find myself comparing the activity to reading and reading always wins hands down. I need to be willing to let go of this mentality and do some of these other items. Previously, I’d mentioned I’d block out a time to do some of these other items but I haven’t blocked that time. In fact, I don’t block out my personal time at all. This also matters for exercise. I think it’s something I will experiment with during the summer since the summer schedule is a tiny bit easier. 
  • I learned: A lot about nutrition this week by reading Body Love. More on this below in the food section. 
  • I watched:  I watched two stupid movies on the way to Australia and then while we were there, in one of the houses we stayed, there were a lot of DVDs so we re-watched two of my favorite movies: Jerry Maguire and Good Will Hunting. Love them both so much. I’ve also started watching The Shack.

Body:

  • Exercise: I exercised once in Sydney and then my knees hurt for about three days. My knees have been hurting for over six months now. I’ve had Xrays done and have gone to both the doctor and the sports medicine. It appears I will have to so Physical Therapy but in the meantime, I’m trying to be careful. It was really sad to see how much the 7-minute exercise hurt. Having said all of this, I am thinking of trying to go to both Barre3 and Yoga this week. I want to see if going out will help me exercise a bit more. I am not sure if the former will hurt my knees but I think I won’t know unless I try so I am going to try. Let’s see if I can pull it off.
  • Food: So I read the Body Love book. A lot of what she talks about was also in a book I read earlier this year called Why We Get Fat. Similar ideas around maintaining a lot insulin variance. Eating a lot of fiber, protein and greens and some fat. Very little to no fruits. (this is the hardest part for me). I woke up thinking, OK I will give this a try if it will help with my joints and my vitality like she claims. The first step was to do one of her drinks so I went to TJs and got vanilla protein. I came home and made a shake and the smell was incredibly overpowering. The taste was so bad, I had to throw out half of it. It looks like I have some sensitivity to the protein. I made David smell it and he didn’t react as strongly. Whereas I feel like throwing up just smelling it. So that really broke my heart and made me feel completely lost. I ordered a bunch more stuff but these things are 30$ each and it doesn’t seem like there’s a way to sample it. Which makes me really really upset. That derailed me for a few hours but I decided I could still easily do the lunch and dinner options of having those food combos and no snacks in between which I was able to do without a problem. I didn’t really even miss the fruit to be honest. Of course, this doesn’t mean anything about its sustainability just that I am giving it a shot for now. I know she says it’s not a diet but that’s not true. Saying that you can only eat a tiny amount of fruit and that you should avoid dairy but x times a month, etc,etc, is a diet. To me, diet doesn’t mean it’s calorie counting or specific menus. It means there are foods you can eat and foods you can’t eat. This is exactly that. But alas, I think it’s worth experimenting with and I’ve been wanting to increase my protein and vegetable intake so if this can encourage me to give it an honest shot maybe that alone makes it worth it. And if I can’t find a protein powder I can drink, I’ll have to find a way to do this without the shakes. 
  • All the others: I want to do better here. I think I still need to take better care of my teeth, my skin and I need to sleep better. I would love recommendations if you have a particular skin routine that you swear by.

Soul:

  • I rested: I haven’t rested in months now. I am sleeping weird this week due to jetlag but even before then I sleep intermittently and wake up each night. I am considering taking Melatonin but I don’t like the idea of taking something regularly so I think I will try and see if the food changes impact my sleep, first.
  • I connected: Well the last two weeks were all about family. I did connect with my friend Gabi in Sydney and it was wonderful. I also have plans to go to book club this week and two trips to work.
  • I journaled: quite a bit of journaling in my travel notebook and have plans to start a new journaling from a book this week.
  • I made art: I worked on my travel journal the whole time i was in Sydney. I loved it.

 


Nourish Me Week 2017 is a year-long project for 2017. You can read more about my projects for 2017 here.

Nourish Me – 25

Mind:

  • I read: I have seriously reduced the amount of reading I am doing online. I still open a few sites here and there but I find that most of it feels too unsubstantial. Like chewing gum. I don’t want “how to do X in Y steps” articles and yet I find I don’t have the patience for the longer, more interesting ones. It’s a weird conundrum.
  • I learned: Nothing super-new this week. I feel this week flew by.
  • I watched:  I am slowly catching up to all the TV I haven’t watched. Not in a hurry, just when I am really tired and don’t want to do anything else.

Body:

  • Exercise: Still no exercise here. I am going to start the 7-minute exercise when I land in Sydney.
  • Food: Doing okay here. Not great. But I’m about to be out of the country for a while so we’ll see.
  • All the others: i love the cream on my skin and my new makeup. it makes me happier than most things. I also got a manicure and pedicure this week which was lovely. And I went to the eye doctor and got myself some reading glasses! (Officially getting old!)

Soul:

  • I rested: I am better thankfully but I still have a lot of trouble sleeping. I wish I could understand why. I’m curious to see how Sydney will work and then I’ll have to do something about it when I am back.
