I realized a few days ago that I hadn't had the chance to update you guys on my Me Before Mommy Journey!
I would like to say that it is going....okay. Remember my to-do list? Well, I refer to it a lot, but I have been a little sloppy with the execution.
For about a week there, L and I went outside a lot and it was great! However, the weather turned super hot, I got sick, and L's allergies are acting up, so we have been indoors a lot. Yuck. I was so much more positive when we would go to the park in the afternoons. I did notice that. I have been watching the weather and this heat is supposed to break soon so, hopefully, more outdoor time to come.
I have been doing good with drinking my tea. My sleeping schedule stinks. My diet is getting better (I have lost about three pounds), but no yoga or meditation yet. Bummer.
I did start reading a book of poetry by Robert Frost, but it has been hit and miss. I have a couple of other books that I have my sights set on, so I am picking those up this weekend to get started on.
I have been listening to more music. I discovered that L enjoys the heck out of my Pandora stations, so we rock out to those frequently. *ahem* Specifically, "Defying Gravity" from Wicked. Mommy belts it out and L jumps up and down, claps, and squeals. I enjoy it because soon she will realize Mommy can't sing very well anymore! HA!
I haven't written anything else in my journal, but I am working on my quiet reflection moments. I am also still trying to get my office figured out and I would love to set up a little nook for me to just sit and reflect in. A nice comfy chair, a good pillow, a warm blanket....Mmmm.....Still working on it...
So, all in all, it is going okay. I have lots of room for improvement and I just keep trying. I have noticed here lately that I am very snippy because I haven't been able to take time for myself to do the things that are important to me. That's my cue. Time to get back on track!
Have a great weekend everyone!
