I am happy that I took the time to take care of myself yesterday. And since I am not at 100% yet, my primary task was to crush my weekend goal and submit an essay. And I did it! I made myself sit still, not read or watch TV or scroll through my phone or get distracted by a household chore I could easily take care of later. I just let the words flow freely, put my editing hat on and submitted my essay. Done! I care if I get a response back (and if it’s published, of course). But as I pressed Send, it mattered more to me that I put myself out there again.
After resting and catching a movie with hubby, I came home to do a couple of videos. In the middle of the second one (a fun reggae dancehall video), the coughing started to come back again and since I am listening to my body. I took a break to drink water and I will lift my weights later. It also occurred to me I am exclusively walking outside and doing videos and it may be time for me to mix it up and go back to the gym. I usually think of the gym as the place I have to go to when it’s cold outside but I do have to work on opening my mind. Besides, I’ve always enjoyed classes and every once in a while, it’s nice to shut the brain off and do interval training on the elliptical. I am anticipating what the week brings as hubby and I prepare to set off for the Summit of Greatness next week in Columbus, Ohio but more on that another time.
Stay tuned for Day 13!
