October, you were quite the whirlwind.
My goal for October was to breathe through areas of resistance, and I think it went pretty well. A lot happened last month - there were times when I could have been better, but all things considered I'm going to count this as success.
October brought bangs, celebrating five years of marriage, and taking an incredible vacation with Ben where we didn't want to leave, even after I was mocked by a penguin. In October I did a lot of knitting - I even had a hangout with Kyla and Lisa where we chatted and knitted which was so much fun! October brought not one, but two root canals, preparing, and finding unexpected comforts during a hurricane, and being a little more at ease with planning. Throw in some admiring of leaves, reading great books, and it was quite a crazy 31 days!
So. November. How about a quieter month?
My goal for this month is to put my health first.
I really want to challenge myself here - this isn't just about fitness (although cardio and yoga are big priorities for me), but also getting the right kinds of food, and listening to my body when it tells me to go to bed, even if that means not finishing a movie or a blog post. (Remember how I tried to go to bed at a good time for the month of February...and failed? I'm hoping not to repeat that!)
Some days this will be easy and some days I'm going to fight myself, but I want to ease into the rest of this year feeling my best, and really enjoying the holidays - something I won't do if I'm sleep-deprived and not eating well.
Have you ever made a conscious choice to put yourself first? Was it easier or harder than you expected? Do you have a goal for this month?
