2017 is here and it's my year to rebuild myself. So much happened in 216 and I lost track of my needs and good habits. It's time for restoration and rebuilding...maybe even a new start in some ways.
One of the ways I am taking back me and my life is to take a few minutes each day to myself. I squeeze 5-10 minutes when I can and sit quietly with a mug of green tea. Green tea has antioxidants and the quiet time really helps me recharge. I add a little local honey too for sweetness and the local bees' pollen helps with my allergies. I feel so much better after I have my tea and "having tea" everyday sounds fancy and happy. I just adore that time of day.
I'm also trying to strengthen my hair. The past couple of years were rough on it and I lost a ton of hair after having my son. I am finally feeling more like myself and getting my hair back into good shape is important to my image and confidence. I know it sounds superficial but being self conscious about my hair loss really affected me. I am trying to make sure it stays healthy, conditioning with coconut oil weekly, and taking Biotin for growth. The waiting game is rough. I can't wait to be able to have a messy bun again. Grow hair! Grow!
I am easing back into my fitness routine. I am back in ballet once a week and trying to get to yoga weekly too. Last year I moved to rural Pennsylvania and being far from a gym is seriously killing my fitness routine. I want so badly to get to the gym but being so far away, and the crazy winter weather, don't make that easy. Instead I am trying to squeeze in squats, planks, and as much movement as possible. At least walking the dog in my hilly neighborhood is a good cardio workout!
Life is about the journey, right? What are you all up to? Comment below and let me know!
