sassyfrassy; regrowth, rejuvenation, restoration

Recommended Posts

Greetings! Sassyfrassy here. You could call me the artist formerly known as roseofmay, kelliestrasza, and other monikers.

 

It has been quite some time since I've participated in a challenge, but the amazing @shaar made sure to poke me to start the new year right.

 

So, here I am to do just that! I'm starting off small since I'm getting back into things.

 

regrowth - establishing & learning

I'm going to get back into tracking my food intake on a daily basis. I'll be able to see what I'm eating, what I'm not eating, and assess my mood and feeling based on that. I noticed that when I eat something substantial for breakfast, I feel more awake and energetic. When I just have a cup of coffee and a piece of peanut butter bread (or something worse or JUST coffee), that doesn't last long at all. Gotta make sure I'm fueling the body properly so that I can get my metabolism working again.

 

rejuvenation - yoga & stretching

Along with the access to NerdFitness Yoga, I also received a whole SLEW of new yoga courses and what not online. I also have a new yoga mat. I really miss doing yoga and it really helped boost my energy, mood, and general disposition!

 

restoration - self-care & self-worth

I've really fallen off the wagon of taking care of myself. Sometimes I get in a "why do I need to do this?" frame of mind. I need to remember to do things for ME. Even if that's painting my nails or spending an hour reading, do it for me and no one else.

 

SO OKAY. Let's do this!

Nice challenge. I especially like your making a priority of self care.

 

Thanks! I always try and make that a goal, but tend to fall off the bandwagon there. It's definitely never on purpose, but it happens. I'm going to make sure I really push myself to NOT forget about myself.

So let us talk about Day One:

 

I will confess that yesterday was a L A Z Y DAY. But you know what? THAT IS OKAY! We had been going FULL STEAM AHEAD for days prior, so a day that involved doing absolutely NOTHING? A+ in my book! And if you think about it? That was doing something FOR ME. I rolled out of bed when I felt like it after listening to some jams and just vegging. I even vegged in my room for most of the evening watching BOBS BURGERS on Netflix (THANK YOU NETFLIX CANADA) and typing away on my laptop with some good tunes.

 

Food tracking HAPPENED. This is what it looked like:

 

Morning: -- (stayed in bed until 12:30 PM)

 

Afternoon: Dark Roast Coffee (Tim Horton’s Pod) with 2 TBSPs hazelnut creamer

Two all-beef corndogs (POGOs)

One soft pretzel

2 TBSPs french’s yellow mustard

 

Snack: 1 Ginger Ale

1 Butterscotch scone (homemade)

 

Evening: -- WOMP WOMP

 

Snack: ⅓ of my EPIC CANDY CANE (it’s pink and tastes like birthday cake)

 

Water: 3 glasses (P.S. DRINK MORE MMKAY?)

 

My stomach was feeling all kinds of yucky so I couldn't bring myself to eat dinner BUT BOY HOWDY COULD I EAT THAT BIT OF CANDY CANE. That's okay. BRING IT, GIRLFRIEND. You still got this.

 

-------

 

Day Two has started out FAR more productive. I got up, took care of the dishes, cleaned up some crap around the place, and now I'm chilling with some COFFEE.

 

Speaking of---------

 

1 Tim Horton's Dark Roast K-Cup Pod

2 TBSPs hazelnut creamer

 

 

HAPPY TUESDAY! It's cold and windy, but ITS COOL. I'm inside and working like a pro. TAKE THAT, ELSA.

 

ALSO Did anyone else see the moon last night? HOLY MOLY! 5 PM and it was MASSIVE and SO COOL. A++++++ astronomy and space dudes.

OH HEY

 

So here is DAY TWO:

 

Morning: SLEEP~~~~

 

Afternoon: 1 Tim Horton’s K-Cup Dark Roast Coffee

2 TBSPs hazelnut creamer

 

1 all-beef corndog

2 soft pretzels

1 TBSP yellow mustard

 

Veggie medley of carrots, red peppers, and cucumbers

1 TBSP greek feta dressing

 

Evening: 1 cup scalloped potatoes with peas and baked ham

1 cranberry ginger ale

 

1 butterscotch scone

 

1 turkey sammich with 1 tbsp mayo and hot banana pepper rings

 

1 bag of popcorn

 

6 glasses of water

 

Yesterday was a WEIRD FOOD DAY but I wrote it out and I was still okay with it.

 

I did some more things around the house and I'm doing what I can to FIGHT THE WINTER YUCK. I'm really thinking about investing in some natural oils and a diffuser. My step-sisters got them for Christmas and we diffused the peppermint one? OH MAN. It was SO NICE. I'm also considering looking into those pink Himalayan rock salt lamps? THEY LOOK COOL but also they're good for your health? I AM A-OKAY WITH GOOD HEALTH THINGS.

 

Today is my step-dad's birthday so we are already planning some PIZZA AND BROWNIES. Yay for planning? :D
