Weekly Reflection 2018 – 35

How I got Stronger this week: I knew transition week would be hard and it was. Not as hard as I made it in my head, of course, But I gave myself a lot of grace this week while still doing the nonnegotiables and I think that helped a lot. I didn’t want to eat well or exercise this week and yet I tried and I showed up. I am putting this week in the win column.

Top Goals Review: 

  • Work:  focused on september and october offsites as much as possible, closed out strat sessions.
  • Personal: finished couch 2 5K woohoo!, did body pump, did hiit, so-so on the nutrition, meditated only once, journaled only once, too, scrapped but did only one art. didn’t do so well on the stretching or evening routine.
  • Family: cooked for jake only a handful of times this week,  worked on adjusting to school with the kids.

I celebrate: i celebrate the first week of school in the books!

I am grateful for:  using the alternate bus stop in the mornings, it’s been a game changer.

Karen’s Points: I did couch 2 5K all 3 days this week which meant I finished the program, I am super proud of that. I also did 3 Body Pump classes and one HIIT class. I journaled and meditated only one of the days and I scrapped. Not perfect but pretty good for how chaotic this week was.

A Change I embraced: school!

I let go of: getting art done with our new schedule. Some days I let go of everything just to get some rest in there.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: it was wonderful being at school on Monday and hearing all the inspiring talks 
  • Magical: i have a 4th and 8th grader now and they both seem happy at school, how can that not be magical?
  • Lighter: i feel lighter now that we’re transitioning into the new routine instead of me thinking about it nonstop
  • True: i’ve been journaling less and i can definitely see the impact (in a negative way.)

Where I chose Joy: i went to school on the first day and my friend kelly was there too, and it made my whole week!

I showed up for:  my friend, my colleague who’s traveling, my kids.

A Mistake I made this week: i made a bunch of small mistakes this week. sometimes jumping the gun too soon.

What I tolerated this week: ambiguity.

My mood this week was: exhausted. 

I forgive myself for: not getting it all done.

What I love right now:  that the kids are happy at school.
