So how did you all do with your goals for last week? Angelseashore is taking a wonderful holistic approach by making goals for her body, mind, and soul - definitely take a look at her blog for inspiration on caring for your whole self.
I did awesome with my goals to eat a low carb breakfast and to only drink during social occasions - however I attended 4 social occasions so it turned out that I consumed alcohol on more days than I didn't (two drinks max each time). Since isolating has become somewhat of a habit, it's sort of amazing that I went out with friends 4 times last week, thus making mild, but frequent alcohol consumption not such a bad thing in my book.
Where exercising was concerned, those goals did not turn out so well but instead of hating myself for being so lazy I'm going to make my exercising goals for this week less demanding. I tried out water aerobics for the first time last week and it was so fun! If you have ever entertained the thought of attending a class I cannot encourage it enough! It has been in the upper 90's/low 100's here and cooling off in the pool for an hour has felt so good and this is a safe way to regain strength and flexibility in my knee that was fractured 10 weeks ago.
We did this in class
Goals for this week
1. go to water aerobics!
2. practice grounding exercises daily
3. practice yoga at least once
Easy goals for this week since things are kind of rough lately. The grounding exercises are difficult though - it's been a struggle to stay present and last Friday I had a wake up call that made me realize that I still dissociate more than I thought. Perhaps more on this once I can confront the feelings of humiliation more comfortably.
What can you do to be healthy this week? Please feel free to share your list in a comment or write a post about it and use the linky thing so we can see what you are up to.
Once upon a time I was about 12 weeks pregnant and was already anticipating feeling weighed down so I planned to take water aerobics classes, as soon as I stopped throwing up all of the time. I found a cute one-piece, full coverage swim suit with ruching down the sides so the middle had room for an expanding belly. A good intermediate between a bikini and a maternity swim suit. At 13 weeks the big bleed occurred and light bleeding continued for 5 more weeks. I never got to wear that swim suit to water aerobics.
Almost 3 years later and it's been long enough now that I could secretly smile and feel happy to finally be wearing that swim suit to water aerobics.
