I’m OK, You’re OK

Somedays that’s all we need to know

It is Earth week on the Soul Coaching journey.  Today we are challenged to examine our physical selves.  Uggggh!  Why do we women struggle with this? Right now I’m not thrilled with my physical self.  Ever since the summer I have been trying to stick to a consistant workout schedule.  I just don’t seem to be able to do it.  I don’t worry so much about the number I see on the scale.  I seem to be able to control it okay, even if it is about 10 pounds heavier than I want it.  But ever since I started working full time, I just have a hard time having energy or desire or time all line up at the same time.  And now I feel sluggish and weak and jiggely.  My jeans that I used to love to put on, now make me cringe.  Yikes.  So once again I will commit to a routine.  It’s extra challenging this time of year, but probably even more improtant.

Some other things I need to get on the calendar:  My first mamogram…oh yeah, I’m forty.  I also need to have my wisdom tooth removed.  Yup…just one…that’s all I got but it’s got to go.  I also would like to get blood work done to determine my hormone levels to figure out if my diet is lacking in anything.  Finally, I need to visit the right doctor to evaluate my knees.  They hurt too much for a gal my age!

So there it is….as I started this process by de-cluttering my home (the one where my body resides), I will end it de-cluttering my house (the one where my soul resides).

    Thanks for the reminder… I need to schedule my mammogram, too!

    Getting your body in order is just as helpful as getting your mind, you know. Just start and keep with it and it will help withe the sluggishness.

    Your appointments are great ways of loving up your body. I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.

    I try to work in something enjoyable for moments like that, like promising myself that I’ll start a good book on the day of the appointments or stop at a cool store along the way.

    Yay to taking care of beautiful you!

    Mammograms are not that big a deal – the techs where I go are very nice and it doesn’t actually hurt that much – just go after your period, not before when you’re tender.

    I like your take on “decluttering the house of the soul” – that’s is what we’re doing huh?
