Jonesy, where do we go from here?

Recommended Posts

It's been a year since I last did a challenge and 2019 was a year of letting go and laziness. Not purposeful laziness but just not caring enough. Not only with my physical self but my mental self as well. I stopped doing the things I enjoyed and was more hermit like than ever before. 

 

I changed things up for 2020 and did my Whole30 in January instead of in the fall. Not sure I'd do that again but it was a nice way to bring myself back to better eating habits. But what do I do now, where do I go from there? This has lead me to mindfulness. I've been going on and on for a year without living purposefully, I need to try and change that. These are more Druid goals but I've missed the assassins and decided to create my challenge here. :) Plus, I want this to be the push I need to get back into body weight exercises.

Sunday I started looking into which meditation program I want to start in the Reach app. I honestly have no idea which one will be best so I decided to pick one and go with it. This challenge I'm working through the motivation program. I did an energizer session called beat procrastination and then wrote up this challenge. So I guess it motivated me. :) 

 

Monday I had the day off and did Day 1 of the motivation program. I feel like it's a little hinky but I'm going to keep with it. I also did my first yoga session. My friend got me to join her in doing this this called Yoga Burn. I did the first training session and it was ok.

So, I'm currently working in our finance department to help out while they build the foundation for our new ERP system and it's kind of intense everyday. Tuesday was a processing day AND day back after a 3 day weekend, we were slammed! It was kind of a lot. I didn't do great. I missed lunch, went and bought dinner instead of eating the stuff I bought this past weekend. I waited until bedtime to do my meditation and just generally procrastinated once I got home. 

 

Wednesday was a way better day. My co-worker and I were elbows deep in problem invoices and vendors. So busy but what a productive day! Got home and did my 2nd day of yoga and day 3 of my motivation meditation. I'm sort of irked I didn't do day 1 on day 1 but :rolleyes:.

It's been a hectic and stressful few days. Thursday-Sunday I did my mindful tasks but either forgot or didn't do any meditation. I did read a ton of books this past weekend but that's about it.

 

Thursday I was the only one at work and had a lot of stuff to do. 11am and my big boss asked me to pack up my things and go to a different department for a few hours. Turns out the CFO had put in his resignation the night before and was escorted out on Thursday. This news is big for the finance department and shakes everything up. I also got some news from my Logistics boss that kind of upset me. I'll get to that later but basically she wanted to give me a heads up about an announcement that was coming. I was sad and did nothing but watch the office that night and went to bed at 8:30pm. 

 

Friday was another emotional day. One of my co-workers was back and we talked a lot about everything that happened on Thursday. It was an awkward day and I had to work late. I still had to grocery shop for this weekend and I didn't get home on Friday until 7pm. I still had to make 2 different tea sandwiches and a version of a Monte Cristo pinwheel. It took forever. I didn't get a chance to do a workout or meditate. I had planned to do my workout Saturday morning but ended up going over to my parents house to celebrate my sisters birthday. Then I headed straight to my Galentine's Tea party potluck. I got home real late. Sunday I went to my favorite tea place with my Stepmom and 2 step sisters. It was fantastic but had me full for HOURS afterwards. I went to bed early and forgot to meditate.  

 

Monday is when the other shoe dropped and they finally made the announcement to the whole organization about the CFO. They also officially announced that they were moving our payroll to the HR dept. but not the payroll person, instead they were moving that person into logistics to become the tactical buyer, which has not existed until today. There's no job description and no interview, just moving the person into it. This tactical buyer position is one my Logistics boss has been grooming me for once we had the OK to create the position. She told me this news on Thursday but I must have been in denial. Like I was waiting to react, waiting to see if it really was true. Today I felt a lot of anger and basically hide at my desk, head down, headphones on and just worked without breaks. I got home and did my 3rd workout and my 4th workout back to back then did my meditation. The motivation meditation did nothing for me today. 

 

The unselfish part of me is struggling because I'm happy that this other employee doesn't lose her job. The selfish part of me is grieving potential work advancement and growth. My boss had already put me on a path and now, I have nothing.  I've used a phrase, a phrase I detest a lot today, it is what it is. 

 

This is going to be me for a while.

I feel like this is the first day where I've been able to breath. I keep forgetting to check in and I'm not doing great. My challenge is going ok, but I'm struggling with meditation. I don't think I should have said every day. I think I should have eased myself into it but I was overzealous. I also hurt my foot during my rage yoga session and today was the first time I've felt comfortable getting in a session. It went well but I had to modify a few moves to not put more stress on the arch of my foot. I did it though. I have been kicking ass on mindful tasks, just wish I could chill, slow down and take everything in a little more. I'll get there though!

 

Doesn't help that my State, Washington, is in a pandemic frenzy.
