Week Two of my Best June Ever was a lot of fun and also a little challenging. I have been working a lot and there was a lot going on and it was a little harder to find me time where I could purely enjoy myself. But I did my best and succeeded! After all, I’m the one making up the rules! So I win! 🙂
My other main focus for this month, other than “dating myself” is to get in the best shape I can possibly get in- they kind of go hand in hand in my eyes. To challenge myself when I feel like giving up. To inspire myself to keep pushing through even when I feel like I’m not where I want to be. I’ve been taking cycling class and my amazing Mark Fisher Fitness classes and have gone to my own gym. Part of the challenge is I’m learning to find the balance between challenging myself and resting. I got sick yesterday and am now in bed for a few days and I’m wondering if it’s just happenstance- which it could be- or I need to give my body a little more lovin’ and rest. It’s all about learning what our bodies can and can’t do. And this is my first truly committed exploration so I have to allow patience even though it can get frustrating.
Here are a few pictures to track my week of spending good quality time with myself.
That kale salad is a staple in my diet these days with crunchy sprouts, pumpkin seeds, daiya mozzarella, chickpeas and balsamic vinegar . I love it! I’m trying to prepare more meals at home right now and then eat out on my balcony since the sun is shining!
I took myself on a date to Bullets Over Broadway last Thursday and loved an evening at theater with myself and crave many more nights like this.
On Sunday, I took a very hard cycling class and on my long stroll home I stopped at the Astoria Flea Market and found an awesome pressed juice stand. I just love the glass jars and straws! And on the back I saw this quote that as I was walking, I was like, “Yes, yes, yes!”
“Our mission is to inspire a balanced, active and invigorating lifestyle…” and then, “Restore, Rejuvenate and Embrace Life.”
Alright! I’ll strive for that too! Onto Week Three. Sick or not sick, I will keep taking caring of myself, keep nurturing myself, keep trying to find the balance and find quality me time. Onward!
