Weekly Reflection 2018 – 38

How I got Stronger this week: This was a long week, I worked a lot and had really long days, sleepless nights, and a lot of headache. Despite all that, I managed to work out Monday, Tuesday and Friday this week. Not as much as I would have liked but still not nothing. I also showed up again and again in all the areas at work and at home as my best self as often as I could. I am calling it a best effort week as opposed to a really good week. 

Top Goals Review: 

  • Work:  october getting close to being done, planning officially started, december not really getting anywhere yet.
  • Personal: only ran once this week and for 20 mins. I did 2 body pumps. nurtition was so so and I really didn’t do much of anything else.
  • Family: i did not cook for jake :/,  i did help kids with school+routine, we started to figure out plans for the rest of 2018 and some of 2019.

I celebrate: getting the planning process out the door.

I am grateful for:  my husband whose kindness is just unparalleled. 

Karen’s Points: 2 body pumps, one run this week. reasonable with nutrition but not perfect. it was ok.

A Change I embraced: a lot of work. just so much repetitive work. long, difficult nights of not a lot of sleep.

I let go of: trying to do it all at once and focused on what was a must-do

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: all this experience around the october event is fresh for me.
  • Magical: getting to do a bit of art was magical. 
  • Lighter: i feel lighter during the weekends. is that fair?
  • True: i am tired. i am worn out. 

Where I chose Joy: i laughed a lot at work this week. 

I showed up for:  david this week who had an 8th grade tea at school.

A Mistake I made this week: i had a meeting that went really poorly, i sent an apology letter but heard nothing back :/

What I tolerated this week: lack of sleep.

My mood this week was: worn out. 

I forgive myself for: snapping a bunch this week. i don’t do well when we talk in circles.

What I love right now: that i can still sit out in the backyard even though it’s getting cold.
