Things Making Me Happy Today (a list)
1- My workouts. They are also semi-torture but I love having the 80DO workouts as the first thing on my to do list every morning (well, after posting this). And I have definitely seen my body continue to change for the better with an emphasis on strength training over cardio. So glad to have embraced this at-home option and NOT missing those summer runs in swamp-like heat.
2- COFFEE. Yes, I still set up my automatic coffee maker to brew every morning (before I wake up!) and love coming downstairs to the smell of a freshly brewed pot every single day.
3- My bullet journal. So calming. So pleasant to write in. Maybe slightly more pleasant than actually DOING the listed items in there, but oh well.
4- I am off this weekend (though Josh is working). I am very much looking forward to being home for the 3 day weekend.
5- NOT thinking about the start of the school year. I have decided this is just . . . not worth dwelling on. I’m not saying it’s not important (IT IS), but since I have no real control over what will happen in our locale it should not occupy a high percentage of my thoughts. (The only potential actionable option would be to move C to G’s school, which I am mulling over but only periodically).
6- The Hate U Give. Just started it (it was on my list and OMDG recommended it as well) and it’s great.
7- Continuing to focus on one day at a time. This is seriously the only tactic working for me right now. If I start to think far ahead, I get panicky. Thus, I am mostly trying to just stay on today. Every day.
