Last week was an “off” week for me. I felt like my body hated me, the numbers hadn’t moved on the scale or tape measure like I wanted, and nothing felt right. I ate like crap, I was angry at the process, and I just generally had a crap attitude.
Friday morning I had a great conversation with the owner of the Barre3 studio and she was able to give me some really great reminders of what I already knew, to put away the scale, to focus on how I feel, to find peace knowing that I am being active and doing something good for my body and just leave it at that.
I realized about Friday afternoon that the real problem was that I had been “going” so long and so hard that I had completely depleted my stores of energy, good attitude, resolve, and strength. I was OUT.
Luckily on Wednesday, Jake told me that he was missing “us” time and that he really needed some this weekend. I immediately pulled out my calendar and marked a red box around Sunday, the day when we had no plans, and texted him a picture saying “You and me, no phones, just lots of love on Sunday” with an assortment of emojis. ;) I knew we needed it, and as fate would have it, Saturday afternoon/evening ended up clearing out as well.
Saturday afternoon I weeded the flowerbeds and fluffed the mulch, sat in the back yard and read a book, and then we went on a date to the drive in movie theatre to see The Longest Ride. We’re old and didn’t stay for the second movie. Sunday we did nothing but watch Netflix, laugh, read, and go out to lunch.
This weekend was exactly what I need to recharge my batteries, get my mind back in a good place, and get a grasp on reality again. I also managed to squeeze in a much needed pedicure, which was just the cherry on top of a perfect weekend. I am so ready to attack this week!
How was your weekend? :)
