Over the course of the month, I’ve been working to restore good eating habits. I’ve been eating 2-3 pieces of fruit each day, making sure to incorporate vegetables into breakfast and lunch, and being mindful of the sugary treats I crave. I’ve also made sure to focus on some good protein, and for the most part I’m feeling pretty good about my food choices. I could stand to remind myself to drink water more, but this is about baby steps. Yearly intentions are set as a theme for the year. I’m also struggling with a good sleeping schedule, but shift work doesn’t lend itself to daily routines. I’m also working on fitting more exercise into my life, and I spent a good majority of the month sick with cold after cold.
I’m working on a decluttering challenge to give our home a sense of renewal and freshness. We may be hanging out in this home for a bit longer than I expected, but I think a few changes here and there can transform our home into something that suits us just fine. It feels like this year will definitely be about rebuilding and progressing with life. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m starting to feel energized and motivated again. I’m regaining my positive outlook on life, and I’m adjusting my expectations where necessary.
