How did I make time for me? Let me count the ways…
1)I had last Monday off of work and I did all kinds of things for myself. The one thing that I rarely get to do though was go out to lunch with a friend. It was very nice to just chat and not be rushed!
2)I drank tea. It sounds so silly, but I have found a tea that is AMAZING!! It takes like Big Red chewing gum. So a few times over the course of the week, I stopped everything I was doing to turn the tea kettle on and brew myself a cup of tea. Then, I sat down and enjoyed it. While it was still warm!
3)House paperwork. My husband and I are officially back on the house hunt. (Wish us Luck). So, I got together everything that the broker needs to get the process rolling. I love doing stuff like this, so it was actually fun for me.
4)Speaking of fun for me, I checked quite a few things off of my “to-do” list. I love having lists and even more checking things off of the list.
5)I finished another book. That means that I am 3 weeks into the new year and I am on book #4 & #5. I often am reading 2 books at the same time. One in physical form and the other an ebook while I am working out.
6)I went to the gym 5 times last week. Each day Monday through Friday. Then I gave myself Saturday and Sunday off. I did still get in 16000 steps on Saturday, because I had 2, 2 hr training’s for 100 people and I walked around the room the entire time!
7)I attended church on Sunday for the first time since Christmas. (Sorry God)
8)I had a playgroup on Thursday that I was leading at the local library. Well, I was there and all set up about a half an hour early. So, instead of just sitting and waiting, I walked the perimeter of the room. I got in nearly 3000 extra steps just doing that.
9)The weather here in Michigan has been straight up nutty. Yesterday I went for a walk in my short sleeved shirt, with no coat. It felt amazing to get out in the cold/crisp air.
10)It seems like I should fine at least 1 more thing that I did for myself. Round it out with 10. I ate Pizza!! For 3 different meals this weekend. Yes and I didn’t feel guilty about it. Both days I had a smoothie for breakfast and protein throughout the day. So Saturday I had 3 pieces of pizza and again on Sunday. NO GUILT!
