I went grocery shopping on the parameter of the store only
I walked 1.75 miles in 34 minutes
(first this year - last year at 34 minutes I'd walked over 2 miles, but it's not last year anymore - new year, new normal.
I did upper body work outs (seated) with my new 2lb weights
I completed writing 30 poems in 30 days for the first time in 5 years (April goal - met)
It's been a rough week. I felt distinctly different in my spirit this week - weaker, more distracted, not as confident, focused or hopeful. The thing I didít know was why (now I think it was a feeling of foreboding).
I read motivation articles and learned that motivation is sustained by making wise choices, I added to my workout routine (got the mini bike back), ate some yummy baked sweet potatoes and started to feel better, when a blast from my past showed up in my email. Do you ever wonder if some things happen *just* to throw you off track? I didnít expect to become so disconcerted. I didnít like that feeling. It was a former feeling, and I'd like to leave it in the past. No, I plan to leave it there and continue forward. There are just some pieces of luggage that you'll never need on your journey ahead.
I have not given up. Next week will be better. This month, I plan to add some vegan dishes to the menu - that's the goal. Have a great weekend!
