The bad news is, real life begins again tomorrow.
The good news is, my stay-cation was AWESOME. And it was not without challenges. My foot is hurting pretty much every day (11 days and counting until my specialist appointment). And I need a root canal, which I'm getting in 2 days, but that tooth is pretty painful as well. It's making my whole face hurt, and the pressure when I swim makes it a little worse. And you may recall that I was pretty anxious about this stay-cation in terms of making good, healthy decisions.
Despite all that, here I am 6 days later--well rested, feeling peaceful and grateful, with 6 healthy days behind me! I ate in range every day except once (a planned over day as we went out for cocktails and dinner/movie). And most days were in my lower range even. I swam 4 times as planned last week, and did ST the other days. I am very, very proud of myself. It gives me more hope for Thanksgiving, which I've also been anxious about since we are hosting.
So I am pretty fired up about the whole thing. We have done a lot of cooking, which has been fun, romantic, and also helped me stay in range so successfully.
There's also been some space for interior work, which I am pretty happy about. We're starting this weekly prayer/meditation/deepening practice (joyce rupp's book, Open The Door). I'm pretty excited about that too. I feel like it is a good time in my life to do some evaluation for next steps, and I think the next steps are mostly inside growth.
Anyway, a great week, and more to come!!
Hope you have a great Monday and a great week!
