For January and February my goal was small because this is the hardest time of the year for me. Winter wears me out and the lack of warm sunny days challenges my healthy lifestyle habits. There’s something about the cold and how it makes me want to cuddle up on the couch with some tea and enjoy my biggest not-so-guilty pleasure, White Collar with Alex.
My goal was just to practice giving my presentations about diabetes in Spanish. And so I did. My problem has been more about a lack of fluidity between tricky words and sentences versus not knowing what to say or how to say it. It’s worked for me at jobs in the past but when giving a presentation it seems important that a message come across smoothly. With each presentation I’m doing better and the fear of speaking Spanish is behind me, um, mostly.
Now onward to March and April, or just err…April. Spring is here and while allergies cause me a lot of serious fatigue (seriously, the body just. shuts. down.) I am still eager to enjoy warmer weather and longer days. Of course, as I type this at 6:46pm on a Sunday in Spring I’ll admit it has been snowing all day. Go figure.
My goal is to jump back into exercise. Not that I ever stopped but I since Winter is a hard time for me-a time of surviving versus thriving if you will, I did just enough to get by. I feel the need to sweat more. I need to get toxins out. This is a perfect time because Spring naturally brings greens and berries with it which help detox the body.
I realize this post is super late but I have been working on my goal all month. Every other day my workout is a tad more intense and that’s enough to make a big difference in my body and energy levels. So far so good!
*A few days later*
I’m now on day three of a juice fast. I’m juicing mostly vegetables and only consuming that and water. It’s been really awesome thus far. A post on the entire experience to come. I gotta see how long I can go first During this time it’s just been yoga, which I’m surprised I can even do while on a juice fast in the first place. Who knew?
What are you working on?
