Hey ya’ll! Since we are halfway through the year I thought I would check in and let you all know how my goals for 2016 are coming along. Today is all about the personal goals that I set for myself, but you can read all about my running goals here.
So far the Mr. and I have already been to so many new places, but have other places on our calendar as well. We continue to add new destinations to our travel plans and have so much to look forward to! We are truly blessed to travel the way we want to and see the places of our dreams.
Love The Little Things/Find The Flourish.
I have really been working to appreciate the small things instead of always searching for the larger joy. This training cycle has really helped me appreciate my progress in the smallest of ways. I have also been doing better with my stress management and anxiety thanks to my wind down routine and more yoga. I have been really trying to not sweat the small stuff and enjoy what makes me happy. I am still working every day to find my flourish and balance training, married life, being social, my crazy thyroid and more.
Self Love/Body Image.
Every day I try to make an effort to love my body and be thankful for all the things that I can do instead of focusing on all the things I used to be able to do. I have been feeling much stronger lately thanks to extra strength workouts and yoga which has helped me appreciate my body a little more. I still miss the way my body used to look and how I remember feeling, but I continue to remind myself that everything is relative. My perspective is different now because I am recalling things in the past. I am also continuing to learn that rest is sometimes the best love I can show myself.
It’s a slow process, but I’m getting there and that’s all I truly care about. So far the area I am most pleased with is my stress and anxiety management. It’s really changed my world!
Today I’m linking up with Amanda over at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. Be sure to check out her blog for everything yummy!
