September Self Care

Hi everyone,

August was a crappy month for me and honestly I am tired and burned out.

This month, I am making it a goal to focus on keeping my stress down (even though I am a part of the team that leads a 10 day orientation for first year students).

This is my game plan:

  • #SeptemberWhole30
    • Hopping back on the Whole30 bandwagon! The first time that I did it I lost 14 pounds without exercise! My plan this time to prevent getting bored is to stick to my favorite meals. I do miss my coffee creamer but I am trying to get along with NutPods. I got some serious meal prep done on Monday and have a little more to do today!
  • FB Abs
    • If you’ve followed me for a little while then you have heard me rave about Fitness Blender! I am using their core intensive program this month which includes 3 core workouts a week for 4 weeks. I do these on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Hit the gym
    • I would just follow FB Abs as it does include cardio and strength workouts on days that aren’t focused on the core………but I already paid for my gym membership for the year so I’m going to use it. I plan to hit the gym every Tuesday and Thursday before work.
  • Get enough sleep!
    • Being sleep deprived really strains my body but I honestly don’t always have time to get a full 8 hours. My goal is to aim for 7 hours. Last night I got more than that so we’ll see how this goes.
  • Read before bed
    • I have been really slacking on my reading because there’s just been so much shit going on. Thank you Goodreads for reminding me that I am indeed 4 books behind. I think reading before bed will help me get back into the swing since I don’t have that much time to read during the day.

Also, I finally freaking moved!!! Still waiting on some furniture and appliances but it feels so good to just have my own space.

Any additional self care tips??? I need all the help I can get at this point!

    Take Epsom salt baths, Dr. Teal’s makes one that has lavender essential oil in it, do more of what makes you happy, and take a break when you need to!

    This is beautiful. It’s so important, especially right now, to take good care of yourself. I’m so impressed by your strength, maturity, & ability to set boundaries. I’m a bit envious… but I’m mostly here doing a happy dance over how awesome you are!

    I’m glad you’re making time for yourself! For me, I’m working hard to spend more time with my dolls, and more writing time.
