Weekly Reflection 2018 – 34

How I got Stronger this week: This was a tough week, I was so so tired all week, and just couldn’t get out of a funk, or more specifically feeling like i am under a lot of weight. I came home most days this week feeling incredibly tired and worn out and just ready to throw in the towel. I didn’t do a great job of eating well, I ate a lot of granola and yogurt this week, but I still did my running, I did my body pump and HIIT classes, despite really feeling exhausted. I journaled, i showed up for my kids, I cooked at least a few times, i did what needed to be done. I am putting this week in the win column considering how hard it was for me.

Top Goals Review: 

  • Work:  made a deck for metrics, planned december a bit, allyship sent!, fleshed out sept offsite, started on oct offsite. 
  • Personal: couch 2 5K done, body pump 4 times this week, hiit once this week, so so on nutrition, meditated twice, journaled three times, did some art and the OLW for August, didn’t stretch enough, did the evening routine all but one night. 
  • Family: cooked for jake a little, did math with david and math, vocab and comp sci with Nathaniel, and we all went climbing together too.

I celebrate: i celebrate going rock climbing with my boys.

I am grateful for:  Jake’s support this week. He was so wonderful.

Karen’s Points: I did couch 2 5K all 3 days this week, 25 mins of running straight at 12 minute miles, that’s amazing for me. I also did 4 Body Pump classes and one HIIT class. I am still caffeine free. I had a lot of granola this week. I will go back to only the occasional bare bowls this week because I think i am doing too much dairy+granola and I don’t think it helps me with feeling energetic. I journaled and meditated 3 of the days. I continued the evening routine all but one night. Did the roller a tiny bit but didn’t stretch any.

A Change I embraced: there are lot of changes at work, i am working on them all. trying to do my best to roll with the punches.

I let go of: doing things at night when i was exhausted and i went to bed at 6:30 on Thursday and just read in bed. 

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: the rock climbing was definitely fresh, i was sore for 6 days afterwards
  • Magical: doing the OLW work was wonderful, i am hoping i’ll get to scrap a bit this weekend
  • Lighter: i go back and forth between feeling lighter and heavier
  • True: trying to stay true to who i am amidst a bit of chaos.

Where I chose Joy: i had lunch with an old friend and it was wonderful.

I showed up for:  my friend on monday night when she needed to talk to me.

A Mistake I made this week: i made a bunch of small mistakes this week. still trying to figure out how to navigate in general.

What I tolerated this week: exhaustion.

My mood this week was: down. 

I forgive myself for: needing extra rest this week. 

What I love right now:  despite all the crazy and all the tired, i am so super grateful for my life.
