Weekly Reflection 2018 – 31

How I got Stronger this week: I continued with my work around exercise and nutrition this week and I was very consistent with the kids. It helped that my meetings only went until 3pm most days so I could get home a bit earlier than usual. I tried harder, I also took some risks and I am not sure yet whether they paid off, I’m still working on choosing whom to please better and believing in abundance. But I keep showing up. And I keep going. I always keep going. I’ve been working hard on all of my word and mottos this year. I keep showing up. All. the. time.

Top Goals Review:  the onboarding doc v1 done, initial thoughts on metrics and accessibility not done, schedule the meetings on my todo is semi-done. i did couch 2 5K, and body pump and HIIT and ate well, and meditated, and journaled so little it doesn’t count, i didn’t do any art but i did scrap!

I celebrate: i celebrate having slightly shorter days every day this week.

 I am grateful for:  i had a lovely breakfast with my friend Leslie at work this week and it was really nice.

Karen’s Points: I did couch 2 5K all 3 days this week, I also did 3 Body Pump classes and one HIIT class. I am still caffeine, sugar and grain and dairy free (though I ate 5 jelly beans). I drink soy decaf cappuccinos still.  Still a bit too high on nuts and fruit but overall I’d say I’m pretty solid here. I’ve noticed that the morning routine is no problem but the evening routine is still super tough and i haven’t had the chance to sit with it yet.

A Change I embraced: a lot of change around me at the moment, i am trying to sit with it all.

I let go of: Controlling a few situations at work this week. I am learning to sit back. 

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: Nathaniel and I are doing a new online course.
  • Magical: Getting to scrap our holiday was very magical
  • Lighter: a bit lighter this week, it really helped to drive home one hour earlier.
  • True: truth is i am all over the place with how i feel and i really wish i could do better with the journaling.

Where I chose Joy: nathaniel and i had a math marathon on thursday that was really joyful for me.

I showed up for:  my kids. and for myself this week.

A Mistake I made this week: i think i am pushing a few boundaries at work and i am too worried about it all, so I am trying to make sure i don’t spin when the situation is unclear.

What I tolerated this week: still too tired and just some annoying communication breakages.

My mood this week was: slow. 

I forgive myself for: not being able to break out of my old tapes.

What I love right now:  the few weeks of summer we have left because i really love my morning routine at the moment even though it’s hard, it’s also so peaceful.
