I married the guy who walked out on me back in November 2008, 13 years ago. No complicated feelings, just the thought that I really need to get this divorce over with. It sure would be nice if he would respond to my e-mails about settlement details.
The whole thing is ewwwy, so enough about that. Here are my health goals for this week:
1. Have eggs and decaf coffee for breakfast Monday - Friday. No carbs or cheese.
2. Exercise for an hour every day. Any sort of exercise is fine since it was just last week that my kneecap was determined to be healed and I was released from physical therapy. I plan to get back on the elliptical tonight after 9 weeks of waiting for that bone to heal well.
3. Do the pilates video once and do 3 yoga practices.
4. Only consume alcohol at social gatherings - no drinking at home alone.
That's enough for the first week of healthy goal setting. What health goals do you have for this week? With so many stages to grief work it is so important to set goals that are appropriate for where you are. Earlier this year my goals were to go to the gym and change into my workout clothes and if I wanted to go home right away I could but once I was there and dressed I always wanted to exercise for at least a bit.
Any goals from getting out of bed to shower and put on clean pajamas before returning to sob under the covers, to serious physical training, to finding a therapist, to expressing yourself through art, and everything in between are appropriate. What can you do this week to take good care of yourself?
I'll post a linky thing every week for a while to see if this is interesting to people. If you are interested in participating in healthy behavior please join in!
