Sometimes this time of year I find myself a little down…….not sure why maybe it’s because the holidays are over, maybe the cold dark winter and a little “seasonal blues” – maybe the winter 5lb’s I tend to put on or God forbid my changing hormones (ahhhhhh ck out link) ….. whatever the reason this year since I am aware of it I am going to try and do things differently. I am taking these last few cold months of winter as an opportunity to appreciate, love & treat myself well. I encourage you to do the same. I find I am so much harder on myself than need be – I would never be as hard on my friends & loved ones as I am to myself….. strange but true. Am I the only one or does it sound familiar to you as well?
So to begin – I am forcing myself to go to the gym – I have only been 3 times this week but already feel better! You really do get those endorphins… I am not going “nuts” by any means. A little cardio (25min – work up to 35) and some weights at my gym. ( #sportandhealth )
Second – I am going to buy myself a bouquet of my favorite flowers every week. Why always wait to receive them…… they bring me so much joy and I can’t think of a better way to spend an extra $20.00 a week! BTW It was great getting rose’s for #Valentines Day – it kinda sparked this idea.
