Trying Some Self Care… Again

Well, I’m at it once more. Trying to start a workout routine. I’ve been in too much pain and feeling really weak. My anxiety has been leaving me flat and tired way too often. It’s time to make a change. Again. So, I’m trying a new approach and maybe even a bit of my own advice.

I have three sets of goals for each day. My highest goal is am and pm workout with yoga and afternoon stretching. My middle goal is am and pm short strengthening and stretching yoga with some afternoon stretching. My lowest goal is am, pm, and afternoon minimal yoga.

The main goal is to encourage myself to do what I can each day. The point is to move more and reacquaint myself with myself again.

Yesterday was day one and I met my top goals for the morning and the afternoon, but fell asleep without any evening stretching. Although I did some bicycling after dinner. I even drank the right amount of water. This morning I woke up feeling really good. It’s been a while since my anxiety wasn’t the first thing to greet me in the morning. And it’s been staying soft all morning.

Motivating myself has been easier today and the little voice that tells me to quit my workout early lost to the one that knows I can do that last set. We’ll see how the rest of the day goes, but so far I’m proud of myself.
