I had big plans for today, nothing exciting really just some housework, work and “me time”.
That might sound strange having me time when I live on my own but it’s kind of me giving myself permission to do some self care.
It started well, went to intervals and then did a food shop and was home my about 10ish, put some coffee on and put the food away and then started doing the dishes while my breakfast cooked. I then made the fatal mistake of sitting on the sofa… and that where I stay for a good while, the main reason for this is mainly because I ache like shit from doing the workouts this week especially my legs so getting on and off the sofa is painful! I do like this pain if I’m honest as I know it’s only temporary and that it’s just my body getting stronger.
I eventually did get off the sofa and managed to do some of the house jobs I had planned to do like hoover and wash the fall, fill the garden waste bin with garden waste ready for the collection today but I also played on my phone for much longer than necessary and therefore didn’t do the long meditation I had wanted to do, I know I put it off as I know that it might bring up emotions that I need to deal with but pissed off with myself for not just sucking it and just doing it.
I do wonder though why I don’t do these things especially when I know that the process might not be comfortable but the outcome always is a positive and beneficial. A lesson to take forward to next week. This is even more important as my parents are coming to stay for 6 nights so need to find ways of staying calm and not allowing it to stress me out.
