december oomph: week 1 inventory

Goals:
-Physical Focus: I made an effort this week to implement working out into my routine. My high point of the week for this goal was Saturday morning jog that lasted an hour.
-Spiritual Focus: Did make an effort to pay more attention in mass and open myself up to the change that I want to see. Note to self: let go more often. Stop deciding the outcomes. I allowed every post to just happen instead of stressing about writing the “best post ever”. I am happy with this week’s work.
-Mental Focus: Despite how tired I was or how insecure I felt, I just kept writing because I said I would write. Sticking to my promise helped me reach some very important observations this week. It allowed for a daily inventory of my feelings and thoughts. The secret to sleep? Writing!!! After all that soul searching, I had less thoughts floating around in my head. It was so much easier to get to sleep.
Obstacles:
-Physical: Mondays. Maybe it’s because Mondays are boring or because we feel the loneliest on Monday but it’s the hardest day of the week for me. I don’t want to do anything and I’ll eat whatever forbidden treat is available to feel better about myself. Next week, this is the day I have to focus on the most. No weight was lost. Try a little harder this week to keep a balance and not go from “great” to “who cares”.
-Spiritual: I didn’t meditate. Do 6 minutes silence 1 day this week.
-Mental: Because of the Sunday/Monday pigs outs, it’s easy to feel bad about yourself and continue the self destructive cycle of “giving up”. Figure out a way to feel good about Monday.
Report Card:
Physical: C
Spiritual: B
Mental: C

Notes: Despite this being a slow process, I am enjoying each step and found that I laughed a little easier at things this week. Something is changing and that’s what important. The goal setting has reminded me of what I want and has helped me feel capable of the growth I desire. My writing has allowed me to be more in tune with my feelings. Remembering that I’m on the path to achieving my goals has provided me peace.

’till tomorrow, salut kids
