February 25th, 2020 Least I Can Do

February 25th, 2020 Least I Can Do

Since our last edition, I've maintained the integrity of my food plan boundaries, I've remained refined sugar-free, I've met or exceeded my daily water goal, and I've stayed well connected with exceptional support.

It feels really good to be on the other side of my recent flu-like-whatever it was. I made it out to mom's last night for a visit, the first in a week, and it was fantastic. I'm so grateful for her clarity of late. The last day she seemed heavily affected by confusion was last Wednesday. That's a real blessing.

I'm finally feeling like moving into a more active mode. Lately, for good reason, I've been in a "least I can do" type mode. Allowing this kind of flexibility without the backlash of negative head chatter is very important for me. It's also very important for me to recognize when it's time to move into a more active period. The elements of "taking good care" amid challenging circumstances, for me, can be somewhat of a trap--where I find a baseline of least resistance. At that place, the list becomes small and manageable. My top goals for the past several weeks have been to maintain my daily mental/emotional/spiritual foundational routine and the integrity of my food plan boundaries. Keeping it simple helps when life becomes super-challenging, of course--but as soon as the challenges transition back into a somewhat normal pattern of things, it becomes time for the things to change. I took a good walk yesterday afternoon. That was a start.

A colleague's spouse's mom passed away over the weekend. I'm keeping things covered at the studio the same as she would certainly do for me in similar circumstances. I pray that a similar circumstance doesn't occur for a very long time.

My foundational routine is complete, my food is planned for today, and I have a plan for some good exercise this afternoon/evening.

I'm headed to the studio feeling well and well prepared for a good Tuesday. I hope yours is a good one, too!

Do you own an "I'm Choosing Change" wristband? I wear mine daily as a constant reminder of why my daily practice of things is important. For me, it's simply a daily reminder to be open, willing, mindful, to pause, and to be intentional. If I'm not those things, I get stuck at the line of least resistance and back there is where the old patterns and behaviors thrive. Your order includes priority shipping so you'll get it quickly!
