Self-Care Starters

My PUSH goal for my Season of Self-Care is to blog every day.  It is my PUSH goal because it will help my other self-care goals come to fruition.

Right now, I’m writing in the morning, but I am working toward making it a habit to blog at night, after the day is over.

I am happy to report that I’ve been to the gym every day this week except for today!  Today my schedule is a little bit different.  If I’m honest with myself, I planned to get up and go for a run, but I didn’t do that.

So I am making a commitment to get some exercise in later today.  Ugh.  That feels insurmountable. But it would be really pleasing to go to a walk/run after work today. It’s 61 degrees of a high today, so I can actually ride my bike home from work, and maybe just KEEP RIDING.  There’s an awesome trailhead near the Arboretum on campus, and I bet Matt would be willing to go with me.

Otherwise, I made poor choices for food yesterday.  I have been eating a very healthy and gluten-free breakfast – sautéed peppers, onions, and kale with sweet potato hash browns and three eggs over easy, and sometimes I also have a Shakeology shake. For lunch this week, I’ve had a delicious chicken ceasar salad with arugula – and for some reason, I’ve been having a slice of pizza too.  I’m trying to clean that up.

But yesterday, I decided to have a slice of white pizza and chicken parm with spaghetti.  Whoa.  Oh I remember why.  I was super tired.  I fell asleep at 11:00pm and woke up at 3:30am.

Anyway, today, I’m going to try the arugula salad again, and probably finish the spaghetti. Let’s be honest. I have brussel sprouts with pancetta and sweet potatoes – I can eat that for dinner with some salmon.

Goal:  blog later tonight too.
