I absolutely can not believe that it is already May. Hold the JT memes, pls.
This week has been pretty crazy, y’all. I’m blonde (ish) again. I really, really screwed up my back in the gym yesterday (actually, I screwed it up when I wrecked a car driving over 100mph when I was 16, but yesterday I managed to rupture some of that scar tissue and almost pass out during a workout), and spent most of the day on the couch on an ice pack and in the chiropractors office. Y I K E S.
Highlight of the week: Snapchat had my butterfly filter (my faaaaavorite) back for like 12 hours… hashtag slow news week
So, with all that going on, I have zero updates on Olivia’s room. Or anywhere in my house, really.
Energy has shifted in my life. Lord, has it! In so many good ways. I guess you could say I’ve been like, living in the midst of an existential crisis. Why am I here? What am I doing? What am I meant to do? Where do my true desires lie? What comes next?
After some serious thinking, meditating, praying, and some good ol’ Golden Girls watching… I decided to make a change. I have always loved health and fitness and I used to be such a fanatic. Depression and anxiety really hit me hard when we moved to Fort Smith and I used it as an excuse, a crutch, to sort of let my dreams slip to the back burner… and off the stove, even.
Last week I called and enrolled in the NASM CPT program. It officially starts on Monday. In 10 weeks I’ll take the certification test and I will be a certified personal trainer! This of course pairs really well with my holistic nutrition certification I received from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition back in 2013. Now, I know that no one wants a chubby trainer. Good thing I’ve been working out and using my wealth of health knowledge to make changes around here!
Since this decision, life has already opened up for me. I am feeling so motivated and happy and good about everything! I am working on myself for myself and operating at a high vibration! Hey Universe, thank you! Thank you, I love you! This is the way I was meant to feel, and I know that, and I am so thankful!
We celebrated new beginnings with the full moon in Scorpio as a family, and it was very healing for me and for Olivia too, I think. Sophia was inquisitive and she was excited to learn about a full moon ritual.
We set fire to the things that no longer serve us, and it felt really good.
Learning to live a life on our own terms and without fear of what other people’s perceptions might be is so important… a life lesson I struggle with and I hope that my kids won’t.
Overall, it has been a great week over here but mostly with mental and emotional victories… I’d say the most important kind! This weekend we will get back to the room project and hopefully wrap it up by Sunday evening. The painting, anyway.
Until next time!
