Body Love Project: Week 1 Wrap Up

Chloe Pedley Sep 6, 2015 0 comments 0

Well this has been an interesting week for me!

This week I have exercised intuitively, eaten intuitively, spent conscious time tuning into my body and trying to love on it, respect it, and generally look after it a LOT more!

Hey body, you're awesome!

 

Exercise

Exercise this week has involved:

  • 2 trips to the gym (As opposed to my regular routine of 5-7)
  • walks with my children nearly every day
  • romps on playground equipment
  • a few body weight exercises with the kids to demonstrate burpees (their idea not mine ūüôā )

No runs, because I'm nursing a back injury that seems to flare up when I run...

Food

Our diet is pretty balanced most of the time, so nothing much has changed on the food front, except that when my darling other half has cooked a steak dinner with a side of steak, I added salad too!

I've been out for a cake and coffee once this week, and it was  freaking awesome!

Self Care

I've spent FAR too many nights up late this week without sleep. I've been burning the  candle at both ends, and that has been a massive bottle neck in my mental wellbeing.

Basically I've been writing the Body Love Challenge (that you can subscribe and play along with)  and speaking with glorious people on the other side of the world.

Tonight is the LAST night this week I'll do this... I swear!

I HAVE been roaring my mantra, and I HAVE been brainstorming my own self care issues, so that's been really positive for me!tiger!

I also had some fun, and tried out some makeup! Makeup is something that SERIOUSLY terrifies me, so this was a tonne of fun!

Result

I was bursting with enthusiastic energy right up until Friday, when lack of sleep, lack of food (yes I experience HANGRY) and not not quite enough human interaction to nourish my extrovert soul resulted in a full blown tanty!

Clothes were thrown, doors were slammed, feet were stomped and tears were shed.

I was unceremoniously bundled in a blanket and sent back to bed by my ever patient husband.

A nap, and cake later - I felt fantastic!!

BRING ON WEEK 2!!
