Day 21 :: The Final Day ::
I immediately questioned myself why I was waking up when my alarm went off. I woke up slow, floated out of bed and did the things I needed to do to leave at 4:15 am.
I kept questioning myself the whole way there. Is this the new life I really want? Leaving my amazing bed so early in the morning?! Putting myself through another gym time? The people-ing? The sweating? The thinking about numbers and movement and form?
Day 21 came thick. Not heavy, just thick. Like my thoughts were swimming through Vaseline. Not bad thoughts, just a lot of thinking and feeling. So early though 😳
I don’t like arriving earlier than Ashley. I go back into lamb mode, just waiting for my gym shepard to push me along. She arrived and I felt better. It’s still a thing. It’s been 21 days but I still prefer her presence around me. Especially in Hartland. I don’t know if it’s the time, the building, or everyone’s spirit still waking (some slower than others), but 4:45 am in Hartland is very tough on me.
I love it at the end though 🤷🏻♀️
I think maybe today was a sweat record 😳 I was dripping gross. So gross. Wet. All wet. It was amazing and horrible and I wanted more but I couldn’t move any more 😂
Thank you for your energy today, Rachelle ⭐️ I’ve been looking forward to today all weekend! I appreciate the patience you have with me so much 💗And thank you for the extra push the whole time. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you 🙏🏼
But, ummm, my lunge muscles are still toast 😳 My squats are unstable and weak and my lunges are almost unbearable. I need to make the time to visit Great Lakes Chiropractic & Movement Center. I’m overdue for a head-to-toe adjustment and a movement consultation. Probably a massage too. All the things up there. All the good stuff ✨
This balance of self care and life seems a bit impossible at times. Taking care of yourself is mind, body and soul. Taking care of your body isn’t just going to the gym. It’s paying attention to your body and caring for it during its growth. Staying aligned. Stretching properly and rest and recovery. Breathing. Eating the good fuel and staying hydrated.
Loving yourself is a lot of work ☺️
Monday came with a lot of thoughts, understandable feelings and good energy 😌 I love that full moon 🌝 I’m going to make today the greatest day of this challenge yet! Lotsa water, housework, happy time with my boys and a little work-work. Starting out my birthday week right 😉
Smiling through it all 😊🚪💫
