Ahhhh…lazy Sundays! I have completely forgotten my responsibility to myself as a mature, BTD-aware AB individual. We AB’s grow best in sunshine, love, laughter, gentleness, rest, self-reflection and flexibility. Sunshine I’ve got now that I’m back in Cali…love and laughter are part and parcel of my home…but gentleness, rest, self-reflection and flexibility…those I haven’t been so easy to come by lately.
I’ve been so consumed with taking care of everyTHING else besides myself that my SELF has gotten a bit lost in the process over these past six weeks or so.
It’s finally caught up to me. I’ve had a headache every day straight for three days now, my eyes are burning and bloodshot like a drunk, my heart pounds like it’s been broken, my body is rigid and tight…the list seems endless. I should have taken a nap earlier this afternoon, but instead tried to push through and do more work. Now I’ve got a crink in my neck and I’m a useless, sad sack.
So, if you haven’t felt it yet…here comes another try at remembering what’s best for ME and following through with it. After a quick snooze, I’ll be taking a calming shower with lavender, incense and gentle tunes. Then it’s off to the market for AB compliant foods and a plan for how to TREAT myself well until I FEEL well. I’ll stay in pool, but add weights and LOTS of stretching. Beyond that, I’ll be nicer to me and not think/say all the mean, rotten things that I’ve been thinking/saying. I think to clear out the rubbish from my brain, I ought to do a bit of journaling as well.
My promise to you…out there in cyberland…I’ll give you the first week’s “menu” including food and activity lists. Feel free to join me or to partake of various items here and there…I intend for it to be 80-100% compliant depending on the availability of food and my budget for the week.
Until next blog…be well…
