Sunrise comes at 6:01 this morning. I continue to wake up, without an alarm clock, the minute the first rays of pink sun invade my window. My mind was full of "I am supposed to......" but all I can think about this beautiful cool morning is "ReBuild." It's time to rebuild myself.
I ran the state street mile yesterday in Rockford,IL. What an empowering race! I ran the downhill mile in 6 minutes and 38 seconds. One of my good friends took a picture of me as I crossed the finish line.
It's time to put my mental health and physical health first again. Lunch yesterday consisted of red peppers, onion, garlic, sea salt, red gala apples, carribean jerk spice, chili pepper spice, white basmati rice, pinto beans, and spicy stir fried chicken. I stayed away from the chicken and leaned toward the beans. My children loved the meal! They wouldn't touch the veggies, and I made a mental note to offer those diced veggies to them before I sauteed them for myself. But my gluten free guy inhaled the rice, and my O inhaled the spicy chicken. I think I rounded the meal out with pure grape juice. I definately needed that sweetness to overcome the spice!
This morning, it's time to listen to the body and forget the schedule. I need to detox, and spend a couple of days in calm meditation. The weather is changing, the sky is gorgeous, and my system needs to rebalance itself.
I feel like my body has been so blocked. But this morning, I feel - well different. My strength is coming back. I want to get back to my roots. Simple priorities.
1) get enough sleep
2) eat right
Everything else comes after that. So what do I need to get enough sleep? Heartland church and their divorce recovery class. Mental breaks through out the day before the cortisone levels errupt. Less coffee. A giving spirit.
Think I will work on that today. Namaste.
