GL Gets Fit #138 {weird…}

Sometimes we forget that slow progress is still progress! As long as you don't give up on your physical therapy, we won't give up on you!  - Compleat Rehab and Sports Therapy: 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.
