I thought I might struggle this week because of the holiday, but that wasn't the case. Not only did I meet all my goals, but I really enjoyed this week! Fitting in movement and self-care came more easily and felt more natural, maybe because having an event on the calendar kept me focused. I actually knew what day it was every day this week!
|Skirt Sister Kate mailed me a hardcopy of the goal tracker. Of course I hung it on my fridge
Nov. 23: I completed the same workout as last Monday, doing lots of squats, planks, and core work. I felt less sore this time around and like how easy it is to start the week with an at-home workout.
Nov. 24: I set a goal to run five miles and got it done! I was especially pleased because it was rainy and cold, but I kept this commitment to myself and enjoyed this entire run.
|Given the circumstances right now, having a tiny Thanksgiving felt appropriate. We wouldn't have seen our families even if we had still been in Florida.
It rained on us nearly the entire run.
Thanksgiving can be a tough holiday because so many of the dishes have hidden gluten, but Robby and Scott went out of their way to make everything they could gluten free.
|Turkey, marshmallow yams, green bean casserole, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, dinner rolls, cornbread, and cranberry sauce. The gang's all here!
Nov. 27: I doubled up on movement today, but not really on purpose! I had planned to try the boys' new Peloton on Friday morning, so I did. I did a 20 minute ride with Cory and actually enjoyed it.
|This did not hurt my butt as much as I expected, but my quads were MAD.
It was a sunny day, so in the afternoon, we all decided to take a walk down to South Lake Union Park. We walked down, played some Phase 10, and walked back.
Nov. 28: Self-care today came in the form of sleeping in and recovering from a week of go-go-go. I also painted my nails.
Nov. 29: Full rest day. Admittedly, I planned to run but felt like I needed another rest day.
I baked another pie (because I had a leftover pie shell and tons of apples) and completed some work things...So in the end I felt productive even though it was another lowkey day. Sometimes self-care is about being an adult and doing the stuff you need to get done.
|I didn't have enough crust for a top, so I made a crumble instead. Yum!
