The year is still young and for the most part, I have done pretty well. There are a few things that I have not focused on such as my music and the cleaning of my apartment. I feel as if I have let a lot slide these past few weeks for some reason. I don’t know, I’m just having a hard time focusing on much which can be very frustrating for an overachiever.
I think the best way to go about this is to write in a journal expressing when and why I am feeling this way. Rather than ignore the issue, I think it may be best to understand my procrastination and why it occurs. Also, making checklists is a good way for me to get back on track.
The one thing I am excelling at is yoga. I have been doing this steadily since January 1st even though at times I have wanted to quit. Even though I have hit a slight rut in life, I am making yoga my anchor until I can focus on other things. It’s good to know that all is not lost as long as I have my anchor.
I am in decent shape, but I would love to take it to the next level. I think we all would and it’s something that can be focused on in small steps. I have been consistent with yoga and haven’t missed a day in over two weeks. Pretty impressive and I feel great!
Unfortunately, having gotten back into the yoga groove, I have realized that my eating habits haven’t been great. I am really bad at drinking water. It really is a challenge for me as I prefer coffee or nothing. Not a great habit! This week, I have forced myself to make sure that I drink one bottle of water to start off the day. This is a great way to get two cups of water down before starting my morning coffee. From there, I try to drink at least one or two cups more during the day. Pretty impressive for someone who usually only drinks half a cup!
My diet has been carbs, carbs and more carbs. Between pasta and after holiday sweets, I am doing my body no favors. I love sugar and the idea of cutting down takes me to my sad place. Still, I really want to try. Also, eating out every day for lunch is not good for the health or the budget, so I aim to change this.
Here’s to a healthier week!
