This Week // Highs + Lows Life

This week has been a rollercoaster. I started the week off with a sleepless night due to an emergency room visit and I wasn’t able to catch up on that sleep until yesterday. I swear I was in bed by 8:30 every night this week. I’m looking forward to being all caught up and back to my normal self!

Before I get started with this weeks highs and lows, I wanted to announce the winner of the Laptop Lunches Bentoware giveaway!

And the winner is:

Laura Houston!

Congratulations, Laura! I’ll be emailing you soon.

Thanks to everyone who entered!

I got my own office at work! Since I started in July, a group of us were in one room in an arrangement kind of like a cubicle. It was totally ok, we had a lot of fun, but we always knew we were going to be moved to offices after some renovations and now we’re moved! It’s really cool to have a door. Another high is that I’m pretty much caught up on sleep. I am still really tired but I’m functioning and I am thankful for that!

We also had some fun visiting the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens. I definitely want to go back with my actual camera to get some awesome photos. It was beautiful!

lows

Starting the week in the emergency room wasn’t the most ideal! Sickness is no fun. My exhaustion really took a toll on my workouts because I was so exhausted. I was able to get to the gym Wednesday and this morning. Next week will definitely be better, but my body really needed a break!

This coming up week, I’m going to make it to the gym in the morning 3 times. I used to go daily! I need to just get back into that routine and a week of early workouts should get that kickstarted.


This Week // Highs + Lows Life

I decided that I want to end every week with a kind of reflection. I want to make sure I document the highs and lows of each week so I can remember that even things get tough, there are always good times. Sometimes when bad things happen, it’s easy to feel like things will never get better but it’s important to remember that with the bad comes the good!

This week was a great week! Between taking a much needed rest on Sunday to getting some much needed yoga practice in, it’s been a productive week!

This week I was finally able to use a gift I received that was very dear to me. My great-grandmother recently passed away at the young age of 103. She always had Franciscan Desert Rose China and my mom was able to track down some pieces with that pattern to give to my sisters and I (my great-grandmother’s actual China was with a family member somewhere I believe). I was given a teacup and saucer along with her old train case. It still smells like her! I finally was able to use my teacup this week and I love that I have that in my possession!

lows

I will admit that I completely screwed up in terms of diet and exercise this week. I don’t know why, but I feel like I just haven’t been able to stick with things as much as I’d like. I took Sunday off like usual- Sunday is a rest day in our house- then worked out Monday, Tuesday, and this morning. I just haven’t felt like I’ve been pushing myself hard enough and my diet is so poor! It made me feel pretty awful about myself this week, to be honest.

goals

For this week, my goal is to eat a healthier diet but, most importantly, not be so hard on myself if I don’t. I have a bad habit of feeling guilty for not having great nutrition all the time and that’s just silly and needs to stop!

 

What are some of your highs and lows of this week and what are your goals for next week?
