Terah - Once upon a time

Quotable-Quotes-177.jpg

 

There was a nerd. She had everything her heart desired: true love, healthy children, wifi. But something was missing. She wanted more. She wanted to be stronger, healthier, independent, in control of her own life story.
Than she met others like her: true nerds, wanting to better themselves. They too wanted to make their life stories epic. She made friends among them and created an alliance where they would help each other to stay on the path of health and happiness. They called themselves the Doodlies.

 

Her ultimate life goal is: To raise her children and be there for her loved ones

And what is a story without some good side quests?

 

Quest 1: Eating and fitness habits
I'm at week 7 of the "slow down diet". 
We like to think our personality is in a solid state, but it's fluid. Sometimes you're a mom, a daughter, a teacher, a clown, a superhero, a crook, a queen, an evil which,

the list goes on and on. Every time you sit at the dinner table, or go to the gym, one of your personalities is at the wheel. 
The quest for this week is to identify what personality has the upper hand, and what it's motive is. If that personality is not helpful, you can invite an other one to join you. 
But: never judge or try to alter one of your personalities. Accept them for who they are and meet their needs when you can without hurting yourself or others.

Quest 2: Work, live, laugh
Each day has to be filled with work, but also with pleasure and some downtime. 
Housekeeping: one our each day (except for the weekend)
Work: every hour the boys are at school, except for:
Downtime: 30 minutes at the beginning of the afternoon, after I dropped the boys back at school, I take a nap, meditate or read something relaxing

Week 0, day 1

A busy day with lots of work done. We also got "new" chairs! Our chairs had gotten holes, so sitting in them had become an adventure :P I've been looking on marktplaats (dutch craigslist) for months, and yesterday I finally found the perfect ones. SH just picked them up and I love them :D 

 

Quest 1: The power of story

I'd been paying attention at who is eating yesterday and I discovered that "the child" made it's appearance way too often (I want cookies, cake, candy!) and I wondered why. The child wants to play, it wants to have fun. So I brought more fun into my day today. And the child was happy :)  Now the adult came to eat most of the time. And sometimes there was the rebel who wanted to eat 'bad' foods. 

 

Quest 2: work, live, laugh

Housekeeping: hour completed

Work: yes, lots of it

Rest: I played a computer game for 30 minutes in the beginning of the afternoon.

 

A successful first day of the challenge :)

It is fascinating!  Maybe I should pay attention to who it is that keeps wanting to eat all the chocolate in one sitting....

I'm guessing it's either the rebel because of the 'forbidden' aspect of it, the 'famished person' because you believe you can't ever have chocolate again, or the child that WANTS CANDY *throws a tantrum* :D

Week 0, day 2

 

Quest 1: The power of story

So today a new character came to my attention: my mother :P "You've been working so hard, sit down, have a snack". I think I can shush that voice with some self care.

But most of the time the responsible adult came to the table. 

 

Quest 2: work, live, laugh

Housekeeping: hour completed

Work: yes, lots of it and then some more

Rest: Online shopping can be so restful :D I've got some very nice workout clothes coming my way

 

I went to zumba class in the evening. I'm starting to wonder whether or not I should change gym's. I love zumba, and I want to continue that, but I want some 'real' dance classes too. It doesn't look like salsa class is coming back to the gym where I am. I asked a friend to take me to the dancehall class she goes to on Friday. Hopefully that will help me make up my mind.

That HEAT! It has been 24C today and I'm done... And it's only getting hotter :( 

Thankfully SH has today and tomorrow off because ascension day. 

 

I've decided to ease up on my NF entries. I've been very keen on posting every day the last years, but I feel it only makes me obsess more about being perfect around food and fitness. I'll still check in once in a while off course :)

So about a year ago my zumba/dancehall teacher at the gym got into a fight with the owner and quit. He started his own dance company. At the time I decided to stay at the gym and continue zumba with the new teacher. But I really missed the dancehall classes. Zumba is fun, but I want more.

 

My friend went with the old teacher to his new dance company and she loves it there. So I asked her if I could tag along for a dancehall class. I went this evening. And it was SO MUCH FUN!!! I knew all the people dancing there. There was lots of giggling, laughing and a lot of dancing. I danced along like I never left dancehall classes. It ended in a group hug with me at the center :D I normally don't do hugs, but this was nice <3
