Weekly Reflection 2018 – 44

How I got Stronger this week: I’d say this week was a net net good week. Overall, I only exercised three times and I wouldn’t say I ate the healthiest of meals but I also did much better than the last few weeks and feel things are getting closer to where I want them to be. I feel like this word is morphing into something else a little bit for me, something around defining strong differently but I don’t have it nailed yet so I don’t know how to put it into words yet.

Top Goals Review:  

  • Work:  i worked on the december summit and nailed down a workshop so I feel good about that, i also documented the planning thoughts and it was well worth it, i didn’t do the work around documenting my thoughts maybe that I can do next weekend when I am at the airport.
  • Personal: I slept reasonably well this week. I ate soso, i didn’t journal or draw at all and I still want to make more plans for 2019. I did exercise.
  • Family: I am working on figuring out a routine for David, I’ve done lots of math with Nathaniel, I only cooked for Jake once :/.

I celebrate: a solid performance cycle for me. 

I am grateful for:  my kids. we had parent teacher conferences this week and i am so grateful that both my kids are very engaged learners. it’s such a joy to sit through conferences.

Karen’s Points: i did a body pump class on monday, i did yoga on tuesday and it made me so so sore that on wednesday i decided to walk 20 minutes uphill because I was just sore all over. Thursday and Friday didn’t work out but I now know that I will re-add Yoga into the mix more aggressively. 

A Change I embraced: the soreness from yoga maybe?

I let go of: i am learning to let go of so many things. especially my own stories.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Fresh: some new perspectives and todos at work this week.
  • Magical: sitting in parent-teacher conferences was magical.
  • Lighter: work is feeling a bit lighter which feels nice to me but also makes me anxious at times of course.
  • True: i am trying to learn what it means to be true to me.

Where I chose Joy: i spent more time at home this week and some time with jake that was pure joy

I showed up for:  my kids.

A Mistake I made this week: i reacted. i don’t like to react. 

What I tolerated this week: some of what’s going on at work. i walked out of course but i want to do so much more.

My mood this week was: angry and disappointed. 

I forgive myself for: still craving so much bread and cheese.

What I love right now: we are going into what i call the quieter period of the year and I usually use this time to deeply unwind and think about my life, goals for next year etc. so I am really looking forward to that.
