How was your week? Mine was pretty good! I had some ups and downs — ups: two great spinning classes where I gave it my all and lots of water drinkin’; downs: gained a pound and threw away my scale. But it was a good week to get refocused on a lot of things, from work to volunteering to this weight-loss journey.
This coming week is another busy one. I’m getting ready to go away on a work trip next week, so there’s laundry and packing to do. I’ve got a lot going on at work (all fun stuff, though!) and a fun-filled weekend ahead, as well. Good news is, I’ve already planned out the meals I’m going to cook for dinner this week. I’ve made a grocery list for a few items I need for breakfasts and lunches. And I have all my workouts planned! I’ll have one fun treat night on Thursday with a healthy dinner and a small slice of homemade chocolate cake as the treat.
Do you have a fun treat planned for Valentine’s Day? (But you’re keeping it in perspective, right?!)
Love My Body Project #2: I’m so thankful that my body communicates to me when my stress level is too high or I haven’t had enough sleep. I don’t think we listen to our bodies often enough, but I always notice when I’m fatigued, getting too many headaches, achy or I need to release some pent-up stress by working out. So glad that my body reaches out and says, “Hey, Jen, cool it! We need some sleep/stress relief/a doctor’s visit.” I hope you listen to your body, too!
