Day 89 | 100 Days of Self Care


The kids set the chicks up with a mirror and decorations to remember us when we are gone.

Today was the kind of day that serves as a “catch up.” It’s the kind that follows a late night and maybe a beverage or two. (Or is that a beverage or two and a late night?) There’s a little lag and a little drag. When living this far from family and friends, it’s more about getting everything done – even if you get home after 1:30AM. (Still got my post up, didn’t I? #boom)

Today’s Self Care Stats:


  • Solo running around with my man before picking up the kiddos
  • Cof.fee.
  • baby chicks lovin’s
  • First outdoor ice cream of the season with the family
  • Jump started on some weekly tasks to leave room for bigger projects
  • Prepped for a week back on schedule
  • Inspirational reading
  • Winded down and turned in early

How I felt

Wee bit tired. Lack of sleep is catching up. My body is sore still from softball (sore is good!). And I’m feeling generally sluggish and unhealthy. That’s the truth.

Take away point

One day of feeling unhealthy doesn’t make me unhealthy. It does give me a gauge to see how I want to feel tomorrow and the types of feelings I want to steer clear of. Noted.

  1. For what it’s worth, I had a day of feeling unhealthy yesterday myself. I ate an ungodly amount of cake, and I was sugar-buzzed and easily distracted for a period of time before I just fell into a carb coma. But you’re absolutely right, feeling unhealthy doesn’t make a person unhealthy. It’s a just a feeling, and it will pass!

    1. Absolutely. Totally the learning curve for the day. I kept thinking “I’m so unhealthy,” but then I realized. No that’s not true. 😉
