WOMP. Major major setback of a week. This time last week, I felt like I was on top of the world. I’d completed a full four weeks of our challenge and felt SO GOOD. And then I got really, really sick on Friday night. So this week was a little bit of a bust. I spent most of the weekend + Monday and Tuesday in bed. Wednesday I started to feel like a human being again but felt dizzy if I stood for too long so still couldn’t work out. Yesterday was more of the same. So everything pretty much fell apart this week. Didn’t work out, didn’t meditate very much (it’s hard when you can’t breathe through your nose, and sleep was all over the place. Oof. Onwards and upwards… next week will be a better one!
I’m trying not to beat myself up over it but it’s hard. I haven’t exercised in seven days and am just so bummed out. I am hoping you guys did better though… cheer me up with your own progress reports… I really do love reading them! And if you’re sick like me (I know from stories that so many of you are), rest up and feel better – we’ll get back on track next week.
ZERO. Sad and sick.
Meditation, Dry January, Protein Packed Breakfasts: Not so good except Dry January.
Trying Something New: I actually did try a Sound Bath meditation at MNDFL! This was on Sunday night when I thought (ha ha) that I was feeling better. It was a little weird (a full hour of sounds and no guide to help you meditate) so I was a little out of my element but I want to go back once I am a little bit more experienced with meditation.
This week’s challenge!
- Get to the gym five times between now and Friday’s check-in. This is going to be our ongoing goal; 5 workouts a week. We can do it!!!
- Try something new (this is going to be an ongoing thing!) It can be a new class, a new wellness treatment, a new face mask… even a new recipe! Don’t stress, this one is meant to be fun.
- Meditate every day, eat a protein packed breakfast, and add to your gratitude jar.
- Integrate Apple Cider Vinegar into your day. This is inspired by Julia’s post. I’m going to drink a shot of it every morning as I know how good it is for a cold (and I really need to kick this) but you can also use it in salad dressing + sauces, or put a tablespoon in water for a more manageable way to drink it. Something nasty is going around and ACV is so good for your immune system.
