Woot, woot, it’s Friday. Overall, another good week around here. I think I credit a week of pretty predictable/ routine days. I’m totally a creature of habit, generally speaking, so when too many things jump in and shake up my weeks, I can get crabby.
(Like, say, a random school event from 5-7 on a Tuesday. Or an unexpected meeting at 6 pm on a Thursday. Or, another big one- too many appointments. Those always throw off my work schedule.) With the pandemic, there are just way less of these places to go/ things to do and that feels good to me from a daily work/life/home balance standpoint.
No big plans on the horizon for the weekend either. Ivan got the bulk of the fall yard stuff done on his “day off” on Wednesday (Veteran’s Day)…he even cleaned out my garden for me, without me asking! Bless his heart. 🙂
I’m thinking I might pull out the Christmas lights and at least see what works and what doesn’t. Historically, I wait until the day we put them up, and then have to make an annoying Target run in the middle of it all to replace burned out lights. Or, maybe we should just go ahead and put them up?🤔 What do you think? I definitely might also fire up a Hallmark Christmas movie this weekend, too. I haven’t watched any yet, but….I think it’s time. 🙂 Haha.
A big GRATITUDE list
Yesterday I had a physical at the doctor’s office. It was extremely uneventful. Apparently you don’t even have to undress anymore for physicals? Huh. Who knew. Anyway, I got to keep my cozy sweater and jeans on. 😉
But it made me realize. Whoa. I AM SO BLESSED.
-any pain? no
-any concerns? no
-do you exercise? yep, 5-6 x a week, strength, cardio, yoga and I walk every day
-do you drink? rarely
-do you smoke? nope, never have
-blood pressure? great
-sleep okay? yep!
-check all systems…all good
-who do you live with? my family. all healthy. (praise God)
-diet? healthy, varied, plenty of access to food
-vaccines? all up to date.
I left thinking, well, that was kind of a waste of time! But OMG. Thank GOD it was a waste of time!!! I am forever grateful for being healthy. I can’t say it enough.
**Side note: today is Day 100 of my first round of Morning Meltdown 100! Woo-hoo. I finally made it. I just printed a clean, fresh copy of the schedule and plan to start it again right away tomorrow. I just have to decide if I want to do as written and cycle through 5 on/1 rest/ repeat, or…. maybe do the 5 on/1 rest/1 free choice workout (like maybe a run, or something else on the 7th day) and go with a calendar week split instead this time. Hmm.
See above. I’m grateful for HEALTH.
