Mostly a miss...

This week was a blur and it's not quite over. The teen is in a new two-week program which for me means a 20 mile commute when normally I have none. I came down with a super yucky cold, yielding a sore nose, poor sleep and ZERO motivation. On the eating front, I've been trying to be all about protein/fat, but haven't been journaling my food, so no idea of the macros. It's like no eating plan at all... I need a do over...

But I'm going to Kripalu tomorrow and I'm going to enjoy all it has to offer. Quiet time to reflect, meditate, read, do yoga and eat good food with my mom and sisters. Ahhhhhhhh.

I will shut off the phone, lock it in the safe and hope that everyone at home is content until I return Sunday afternoon. It will not be easy to turn that part of my brain off...

I deserve a break. I deserve to take a few days off. Self care is critical, life goes on and it's all going to be OK.

(I have to keep telling myself that)
