I’m half way through my challenge with Sam. Week 4 was a little rough. Between the beginning of the year events and not feeling well, it was not quite the week I hoped for. It wasn’t awful though.
Week 4 was more about self-care than anything else. I rarely take a day off but I did last week. I slept a good bit of the day before a friend stopped by later in the afternoon. I needed the day. It’s Labor Day and I have not done much over the weekend. I had lots of plans but I needed some rest and down time. Life has been hectic and I have finally learned that it is ok to stop and slow down.
Rain and storms got in my way last week too. I didn’t get to the pool at all because of my day off one day and a storm the other day I usually swim. I did get to ride on Friday though. I also made it to IronTribe.
I tried some new recipes this week and pulled out some old ones. Cooking works better for me than just having the ingredients. I just finished up the farro and chickpea soup today.
It wasn’t the best week but it wasn’t the worst week either. I remained committed to the process even though I slowed down a little.
