I’m looking at a busy week ahead and I thought a good way to focus and get my mindset, well, set, would be to list out some things I’m thankful for at this particular moment. (thanks sis for the idea).
I’m thankful for…
…my big-ass launch that will be done tomorrow at work. Ya know, the launch that has everyone uber-stressed (me included), and wishing my boss were here? Yeah, that launch. Cheers to THAT (and wish me luck and smooth going with the final press release details etc!)
…having a mini running breakthrough on Saturday. I decided to try M’s inhaler again to see if it helped. And it did. I felt like I was breathing to the depth of my lungs, not just the first third of my lungs. There was one moment when we were running up a hill where at the top, I couldn’t control my breathing and I had to stop for a minute. M kept watching, walking next to me, making sure I was okay. He thinks I may hyperventilate a little bit when I panic when I can’t breathe. I’ll give him that. I probably am. But the fact that I could breathe much more deeply with the inhaler gives me hope. I will call my doctor – I promise – this week to make an appointment (yes, Heather, that was for you!).
…having a better body-image mindset. This week, so far. (hey, baby steps). I have really focused on my eating this week (okay, except that cake today my friend’s baby shower…but it was small and totally worth it!) and having some solid weight and cardio workouts and that, combined with just trying to NOT tear myself down, and I feel better. I know this is a habit only I can fix, but I do appreciate everyone who has provided support and advice. Thank you.
…SPRING. Seriously, it makes me so happy to see flowers blooming, trees blossoming LEAVES, and hearing peepers at night when my window is opened a crack. Winter was brutal this year and knowing what lies ahead this spring and summer puts a huge-ass grin on my face, like whoa.
…M. Always. I showed him my blog from Friday on my viewpoints towards marriage. I asked him to tell me if he agreed or not. And not that I thought he wouldn’t (he did. AND said he loves my writing. I love that), because I was pretty sure he would, but because it got us into a really deep conversation afterwards about it. (have I mentioned I love these deep, thoughtful convos we have? I love that about him and us).
…being home. One more week until my next trip our West. This time, it’s Vegas for three days for two tradeshows. Gonna be a blur, and not gonna lie, I’m gong to be completely out of my comfort zone. But, it’s still a week away, right? That’ll be a full month of NON-travel. BLISS.
What are you thankful for this week?
