Day 1 of June was a success, in regards to my “new goals”. Beginner’s luck, probably. Hehe.
Of course, day 1 is always pretty easy. It’s not like I really set any huge lofty goals anyway, but it still felt good to be intentional about checking a few things off.
Workout: ✅ (Did workout #79 from Morning Meltdown called Meltcon, a metabolic conditioning/full body strength workout + Re-Vibe (#80), a short stretching video).
Walk: ✅ (Went with Ivan after dinner. Was a beautiful evening!)
Social Media detox: ✅ Checked my email….less times. Mostly just on desktop, but I did mindlessly open my mail app a couple times in the evening. I think it’s a sign of a BAD habit, when your fingers click on an app without you even really realizing what you’re doing…. Also stayed completely OFF Facebook/Instagram (with the exception of pulling it up for Asher to check for some pics from his team Murph event.) But we just checked the team page and then logged off.
*Felt surprisingly GREAT to not be checking social media every time I took a break, etc. My mind seriously already feels less “fragmented”. All of the in and out all the time was driving me crazy.
Also, Asher completed his Murph workout last night!! He said it was hard, but fun. The carpool mom took them for Dairy Queen ice cream after. Apparently the mile swim was “easy”, and the 100 pull-ups were very hard (even using a band).
ALSO- a note on a covid milestone….As of today, June 2, ALL of our county’s emergency mandates/ restrictions are lifted! Including the mask mandate we have had. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I kind of can’t believe this!! In the thick of things, it sure felt like we’d never see the other side of all of this. Just have to say thank God for the vaccine! I am so grateful that where we live there has been an abundant supply of the vaccine to go around. In our county, 75% of people are now vaccinated, per reports, which is definitely higher than the national average. So, that’s a big plus around here, as restrictions lift.
I, for one, am just thrilled to have life feeling more “normal” in general. Being able to go places, see people, etc. without it feeling super risky anymore is such a relief.
I am grateful for shoes. Very happy to have decent shoes to go out walking in. Something we take for granted- and probably all have a million pairs of. But not everyone does! 🙂
