The week tends to begin on a great note. Monday goes as scheduled. However, life is unpredictable, so the rest of the week may not go as smoothly. Just as last week, this week I am hopeful. Perhaps, I am even more hopeful due to the fact that Roger LOVED camp last week. Tomorrow, he begins a different camp that he will be going to for two weeks (6 half days) in June and two weeks in July. This camp we can walk to which makes drop off and pick up so easy!
Friday, I turn 44. I had so many high hopes for my wellness by this time in the year. I have not been consistent in exercise or healthy eating. My back issues have also resurfaced, so I have an appointment the end of the month. I am really at a loss about how to make wellness part of my routine. I subscribe to emails for inspiration, use apps inconsistently, and just cannot put the drive back into me. Summer’s chaotic schedule does not help, since my sitter and my son’s therapy/camp time is used exclusively for my work schedule. In between therapies, work, and play dates/swimming, there is virtually no free time until roughly 8 pm at night and I am zonked by then. I don’t want to wait 2.5 months to have a routine. This has all dampened my mood, as well. My anxiety and depression have been surfacing a lot lately this summer. I read that blogging can help with anxiety, so I hope to write more this week.
If you are in the same boat (or have been in the past), let me know what worked for you to snap out of it and into a successful wellness routine.
