I have been taking a break, and just being...
I am happy to report a few things, I am feeling so much better...side effects are so much better, dare I say gone? I feel a twinge from time to time. My anxiety is in a good place for the most part, I have seen been seeing better days. It is a good thing, when you can reflect day to day and say, oh, I didn't do this, or I don't feel this way....a blessing. It makes the side effects of the drugs, much easier to accept. Thank goodness we have drugs to make us feel better.
I also, have spent hardly no time on Facebook. I will check in from time to time, but my FB time is usually spent within the groups I am part of there. I have my Brave Girls, and my La. Artisans, and now I have a small group of fitness/mind/body chica's and we share our days, workouts, feelings...challenges. These are the important things. I did spend much time on FB and I do miss chatting with my friends. But right now, I like it this way.
I have worked on my art classes. Mainly Brave Girls, Body Restoration, wow...am I learning things. We as women are so hard on ourselves, and how we think about friends and strangers, and compare ourselves. My o my...I have seen the light. I am into week 4 as of tomorrow, I am enjoying this course and I am in love with my art journal, my Body Book. Amazing stuff going on there.
I have been very active with my yoga practice. Going 3-4 times a week. It is easy now, I am not working outside the house. So I am taking advantage of each and every class I can attend. I feel like a relaxed, energized, spiritual Kathy, when I walk from that studio. I love it. And the cardio and weight machines are happening regularly as well. I am pretty darn proud of myself for these things. All of this is good for my body and my soul... I am so close to the 150's I can taste it... even if it is 159.5...I will squeal. As I said before, the weight is coming off slow, but some inches are gone. Going...go...go... But the funny thing is, this time...I am not in a hurry. I am OK with doing my best every day and seeing the big picture. So different for me.
I have missed checking in on your blogs and seeing you all on FB, I will soon be ready to jump in again. I do want you all to know, I am thinking of you. And as always, wishing you the very best.
