Mid week check in....how committed have you been to your goals? 10%, 30%, 50%, 100%? I think I am right around 70%. I have managed to eat at home, read and cut back on my intake of wine. I have not decreased my tv watching nearly enough and I still have a few friends to reach out to. Sara Jo has been MIA since our trip to Santa Fe and Jenn has been working nonstop work. I figure I will have a sushi date with her soon and I will track Sara Jo down and make her drink wine with me. She needs to take a break from her job now and then.
I woke up yesterday and had a random pain on the top of my foot. It feels like my ankle and calf are straining one of the tendons creating discomfort. I massaged in some arnica cream and have been religiously icing it. I forgot that I have some CBD oil from one of my clients. Georgette gave me a sample and wants to know what I think of it. I think I will be topically applying it before seeing my trainer. I love my trainer but think I might need to take a break from her for a bit. I have not been happy with some of the variables that I cannot control. Music. I have always been able to suggest what I would like to listen to while training with her. Recently, though, they have added classes to the gym during my session and the instructor takes over the music. I told Courtney that I wanted a new solution and think today will be another lost effort. If it starts to go south, I am going to pay for half the class. I won't be irritated during another session and not say anything. My expectation is to have a good session with music that I prefer. Not be forced to listen to shit while paying someone to train me. I have learned a lot from Courtney and know that if I take a break I will focus more on my nutrition.
I have been organizing my face and de-cluttering. Feng shui suggests that clutter creates chaos and negativity. I need to focus on clearing my space and creating a healthy living space. Chad gave me 80 plus books and I am slowly sorting through them. If a book doesn't grab me within 50 pages, I am putting it down and finding another one. I have four to put into the rotation of the local free libraries. I love those little pop up boxes.
I have been making more food at home. Salads, fresh vegetables and homemade mustard vinaigrette. I could be better on this front. On Tuesday, I dined downtown for lunch and then ordered take-out from a pasta place near my house. While there, I met my newest client. Kevin is my first male client not counting a friend that I did some consulting for. The golf instructor needed some hip adjustments and had poo-pooed yoga until we worked out together. Still it was more of a favor and so I don't count him as a true first client. Kevin is from Santa Fe (of course and I still have strong ties to New Mexico) and our session went extremely well. I did forget my essential oil like an idiot. I think he is mostly interested in that. I am hoping to schedule him in once a week.
It was ironic how we met. I decided to take the seat next to his and we began chatting about life and travel. The Santa Fe connection sparked more of an interest and next thing I know, we are discussing when we can meet for yoga.
I hope to add to my clientele. I have continued to take classes to see what else is out there. It is all about the research and development. I consider that my passion while traveling too. Checking out the local restaurant scene, yoga and wine. I have a trip to D.C. and then Walla Walla. Covering Washington State and the premier city.
I should clean my apartment before my client arrives tomorrow. I have a lunch date this afternoon with an old friend. Janna and I met when I lived in Arizona. Ironically, she and I both had lived in Denver and originally were from Kansas. Now, we are both back in Denver and I would love to catch up and see how she is doing. She is funny, witty and travel friendly. She reminds me of Sara Jo.
So I am off to see the trainer and plan the rest of the day. Check in. How are you doing? How would you change your week in a re-do? Do you still have time to meet your goals?
