spooky figures shit out

hey guys, it's been awhile, huh?

 

2018 was a really tumultuous year for me. i graduated from university! finally! but it was overshadowed when my father unexpectedly passed away a week before the ceremony.

 

i'm doing the best i can, and i'd like to get my life moving in a better direction. but simple and achievable is what i want so:

-1 minute of daily meditation

-weekly reflection

-1 thing that's solely self indulgent per week.

 

this is a way to help me find a happier equilibrium, i'll see how i'm doing at the end of the challenge and either find new goals or repeat these ones if i feel like it's the best call.

 

simple, small, sustainable self care. that's the goal

bit of a weird mood tonight, stressed but it's just ambient stress and self judgement. which means writers block. meeting up with a friend tomorrow for coffee and a writing session, hopefully that helps. going to do a bit of meditation before bed and also before coffee tomorrow. my jaw is super tense, so i can feel that i've been holding on to a lot of stress.

Ugh. That’s the worst kind of stress, and I know it well!

Good luck on a quick pull-out!

HEY EVERYONE.

 

wow it's been a busy couple of days, i'm gonna pop back in tomorrow for individual replies, but i'm about to fall asleep :/ but its so nice to see all of you and i'm hoping to have time this week to take a look at other people's challenges. i know i tend to overcommit to online presence sometimes so i'm trying to be mindful of that. 

 

very brief reflection on the last week: 

-feel good about joining the challenge again!

-mediation has been happening daily, including today. i have two 10 min breaks at work and i find a quiet room for one of them specifically for mediation. so i'm trying to build that into my day

-one indulgent thing: got myself mediterranean food on saturday just because i felt like it.

 

-writing with a friend saturday went really well! i'm unblocked and writing without editing again, which means my flow is a lot better. sunday was a lot of meal prep. since it's just my mom and i, i prepare individually portioned meals for the week. this week was lentil soup, pasta with broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes, lemon garlic chicken w/ roasted carrots, brussels sprouts, and broccoli. 

 

diet/weight are not my concern atm. i'd like to clean up some of my dietary things (there's probably been too much sugar lately) but given my history with eating disorders, i think making sure i'm in a good mental space first is more important. i'm at...i'm gonna say a healthy weight probably, i haven't weighed myself in months. last time i weighed myself i was a bit underweight but i think i've gained since then. my clothes fit and i'm trying not to obsess about numbers. 

 

overall the first mini/partial week is looking good and my daily goal of meditation happened

Congratulations on graduation! I know you worked really hard for it. I am really sorry about your dad passing away.  That’s a lot of stuff for a year and stressful as heck.
I hope this challenge helps you deal with the daily stuff. I’m rooting for you! 


thank you snarky [emoji177]

it's been tough but we've been finding our way through it. trying to get everything in order took a while and then we moved again, but i like the new place. a lot.

i hope so too! i'd like to be getting on here more frequently and checking out other people's threads but this week has been super busy so i've just been keeping up with my own. soon though!

This seems like the main important thing. If you know your clothes are sized right for when you're at a healthy weight, and they still fit, then you know you're right where you need to be. No weighing necessary!
 
Good job with the meditation goal. [emoji4]

yeah i think i'm on the right path and while i would like to start exercising again, it was easy for me to get too obsessive about it, but i'll leave exploring that for a future challenge.

thanks! tbh even when it's only a couple minutes a day i still feel like it makes s big difference for my mood

one day i'll figure out how to multi quote on mobile but today is not that day.

mediation yesterday went well! i ended up doing a slightly longer 7 minute session and it was nice. i really notice a big difference in my emotional state from meditating regularly. i'm thinking about moving my meditation session to right after i wake up but i'll leave that for another challenge. this is just about getting into practice again.

i've had a personal writing project with a pretty close deadline so that been pretty much filling my nights at the moment. things should be a bit less crazy after that.

Welcome back Spooky!! It's good to see you around again. 

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your father. I can't imagine how hard that must be.
