๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ37 days and counting. Today I found myself smiling (not sure if it was external but I felt it internally) when I settled in to meditate today. It was just a feeling of release, and goodness. I think a lot of people think meditation is sitting and not thinking, but what I have learned is that's not a realistic. We often are not realistic with ourselves and thus we come down on ourselves. We do not accept things as they are but resist. (Look me and my airy fairy talk lol) but for realsies....37 days and I am learning. I am changing. Take FIVE MINUTES, shoot THREE MINUTES a day and commit yourself to spending time with you, as you are now. Insight timer (the meditation app I use)has a whole section called "mini moments". I actually started out using it to fall asleep bc I struggle w falling asleep due to a racing mind, so even if you use it just for that you can find some time with yourself. Also they have a selection for kids and teens๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ find some time in your day that works. On my days off I like to start my day with a session but days I work that's just not realistic, though it sounds dreamy, it just won't serve its purpose at that time. Most days I do it in the evening, or just before bed. It helps me to shed all the bullshit from day and just let go. I'm going to keep preaching meditation and Insight Timer bc damn it mental health is important and this has made an impact on mine, and this app is so accessible and user friendly I love it. Also we move so fast in our culture we just don't take time to stop, so meditate. Do it.

My cute little 25 lb bar tonight for Overhead Squats๐Ÿค—but real talk here: I tried to work through a weird muscle pull in my hip weeks ago, and finally was smart and said "wtf am I doing? This does NOT feel good!" aka this cannot BE good. So I've spent the past 2 weeks avoiding anything but air squats. Any type of weight and squatting was no good. I've learned in the past year and some change that fitness and working out is a lot of ups and downs, it's not a linear track upwards. I know I'm working hard in the ways that I can work hard, I was super happy to be able to squat with double digit weight tonight. Sure it looks like a tiny sad little bar to some, and I can most certainly do more weight with a healthy body...but my body isn't 100% so the trick is to treat it with care. Injuries can be tough, and mentally challenging but coming back from them is exciting. I had a weird space at the beginning of the year where I was being super hard on myself and fitness wasn't as fun, I'm happy to be back in a space that I am able to enjoy, have fun, and be excited about my cute 25lb bar. Don't take things too seriously, sucks the fun right outta it.

@blueapron meal number โœŒ๐Ÿผ again I give this ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ! Tried yet another new item, uncooked zucchini. The salad was stupid simple but so freaking tasty! And really who doesn't love a mozzarella panini ๐Ÿค”It's only meal two but I'm really enjoying a change in our rut of food, and I'm actually enjoying prepping dinner ๐Ÿ˜ณit's definitely a luxury but for now we're enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜Š

My second favorite fur baby ๐Ÿ’• I wish karma let me carry her around like a baby on my hip. A good sweaty workout almost always guarantees a good set of honey kisses. #wagsandweights #crossfitpuppies #crossfitdogs #puppykisses #crossfit #crossfitsumma #crossfitladies #doggykisses #dogsofig
