It has been a few weeks since I last made a post, but life has been busy for me. As we approach the end of the school year I have been busy with IEP’s, ETR’s and all my own boys’ end of the school year activities. Plus the schools are focusing on NEXT year all ready! Really I just want to get through the end of this school year! Right now as we entered Spring, I feel like we all are going through a time of change and it is showing up in many different ways. People are overly stressed, getting sick and over all having a decrease in energy. People can be so busy that they stop taking care of themselves like exercising, eating healthy and taking time to rest. Does that sound like you because that’s how I’m feeling! I have been so busy these last couple weeks with work and family activities (even made a trip to Illinois to help my in-laws move) that I have not exercised very much, my diet has gone out the window and I am stressed beyond belief! Now that my extreme crazy weeks are over with (at least for now) I feel like it is the time to reset, refocus and recharge.
As I begin my recharging process, I am refocusing on my eating habits of trying to eat clean healthy whole foods and cutting out a lot of processed foods. I am also I'm getting back to the gym. Friday I had my first Pilates class in several weeks and boy did my instructor work us! Yesterday I sneezed and my husband asked me if I was OK because I cringed as my abs hurt so bad from Pilates the day before, but that soreness is not going to stop me from getting my groove back. Yesterday I took a recovery/rest day and then this morning I was back at the gym doing a spinning class that was awesome! I’m also taking some time to slow down and enjoy the little pleasures in life.
Sometimes, when life seems like it is getting out of hand, we need to stop and focus on ourselves. If we focus on ourselves by trying to be the best we can be by eating healthy, exercise, and decrease stress and clutter in our life we can refocus on our goals and dreams. And who knows what opportunities might present themselves….
