Hi Loves! Last week was craziness. Well crazy for me. I’m normally an 8-5 girl. However, this past week, I put in 12+hour days Monday-Thursday. Some of you who work those are probably like… girl… that is nothing! But when you’re used to 8hrs – its a change! And it was kicking my butt.
I was running on fumes. Felt tired, groggy, and my mind was in a haze one morning. I found myself reaching for snacks Friday because I was afraid I’d fall asleep at my desk at work! It was glorious to get home at 5pm on Friday and do whatever I wanted. I unplugged. I walked away from email and facebook and just relaxed.
I made progress on some major projects that were taking up a ton of my time in the evenings a couple weeks ago, and last week was just work for my normal jobs. I found that when I work later, I’m not eating supper until after 8pm for the most part. On the other hand I wasn’t as hungry because I’d eat and then go to bed not too long after that!
I do have to say that I did indulge this weekend. I ate rich foods that tasted wonderful and just focused on self-care. Reconnecting with family. Reading some magazines that have been on my desk for a month. Reading an actual book – not an ebook. (Is it just me, but something about turning pages, and seeing progress in a book is extremely satisfying.) Taking time for myself to just stop. Pause, and reorganize my mind. Some days my mind is all over the place. I took time to do a sort of brain dump and just sort things out.
With that said, I didn’t really work out. But I did take care of myself mentally and to me that is just as important. Much to my surprise, today’s weigh in made me do a double take. And a double weigh in. I actually lost just a smidge over a pound and a half. I’ll take that as a good sign and just keep focusing on myself. This is another slightly crazy week but not as chaotic.
I hope you have a wonderful day loves and don’t forget to take a moment for yourself.
