Day 12 – Step out of your comfort zone!
Well the card pull is bang on for this journey of mine that I’ve chosen to share. Why share? Because I felt inspired by many people along my own journey and I know I can also provide inspiration to someone else. Even if one person. Day 12 leg day and 10 min abs. I am feeling so much stronger than when I began. I am also using my oils a lot more. Finding a new routine, a “routine” that’s centered around me first. Something that as a mom for the last almost 15 years has taken 2nd place. Its challenging as a mom to choose to out yourself first, but it’s so important, which I’m finally learning as my children have grown independent. Over the past few years, I have dedicated much more time to ME and I am so grateful for prioritizing myself but more important, for allowing myself grace to do each step of this journey, on my time. This has never been about “getting skinny”, it’s not about weight. Its 100% how I FEEL and my goal is strength! Emotionally, Mentally and Physically.
Tonight’s diffuser blend!
Laurel Leaf – Triumph
Basil – Renewal
Green Mandarin – Pure Potential
To be completely honest I had to stop half way through 10 min abs because I felt slightly light headed. I drank more water, and rested for a few minutes then got an energy ball, they are SO good! Healthy, yet can also taste like a “treat”, I swear the almond butter ones with protein powder taste like cookie dough!!! At lunch I ate differently than I normally do. I typically make a bowl and then graze over an hour with it. Today however I ate at home, grilled cheese and I think it affected my blood sugar, especially after my exercise program. Which I am loving!!!
Just a couple reminders of what I’ve learned on my journey of health and wellness!
