Most people wait until Monday to start their weeks. And they look at Mondays with such disdain. But I started my week yesterday. I accomplished SO MUCH! It was the first weekend where I actually felt like myself!
Yes, certain movements still don’t feel good on my incision, but normal, every day movement doesn’t! Woo hoo!
For most of the past 6 weeks, the majority of my time has been spent on the couch or walking around to soothe an unhappy baby. I didn’t want to do much else, let alone any house work or anything super productive.
But yesterday… goodness. I did all the laundry… yes, all of it. I vacuumed the whole house (it hasn’t been done in two weeks). I cleaned up the kitchen more times than I can count… which means I actually prepared and ate food!! What?! I did actual business work on my laptop!
And on Saturday, Nick and I went on a date! Yes, we had the baby, but we got dressed in real clothes and went out!! Not for work, not for doctor’s appointments, not to workout. We definitely needed it.
I felt so productive, which I haven’t felt in awhile. Gabriel actually let me put him down several times and he stayed asleep!! Although I did have to wear him around for a bit of my work. But we’re making progress!
Lately, I’ve felt like I haven’t been pulling my weight. Yes, I’ve kept the baby alive, but I’m more than that. I want to be able to pull my weight around the house and in our business. I want to feel like I’ve accomplished something during the day.
So it feels good to have done so much this weekend. To have started my week with the feeling of accomplishment.
I’ve spent all of 2021 so far focused mainly on a healthy pregnancy and now keeping our sweet boy alive and healthy. In the midst of all that, Nick and I have been running our own business and making big changes in our lives.
So now that we’re in the last week of October, which is insane by the way, and I’m finally starting to feel more like myself, I want to set some lofty goals for myself. We only have two months left of 2021 so I know many of my goals will extend in to 2022.
But that doesn’t mean I have to wait until 2022 to start working towards those goals. I have some business ideas I want to explore. I, of course, want to get back into my workout routine. And I want to continue growing and learning.
I’d love to hear from you. What have you accomplished in 2021? What do you want to accomplish with the remaining time of 2021? What can you start now that will extend into and perhaps better 2022?
I’m excited for the end of this year into 2022. I hope you have a beautiful week and have fun planning out the end of your year.
With love and wellness,
