Brave…

I am pushing myself to grow. I am traveling on my own for work. I’m not an experienced traveler. I am attending an institute at Teachers College so I’m going back and forth from NYC and Brooklyn. Plus, I being pushed to work hard to learn and be more than I am now. This is all very daunting and in the past, I might have rewarded myself with a big bag of M&M peanuts when I finally returned back to my hotel. I do enjoy those 🙂

However, I changed that story today. Instead, I checked in, ate dinner and got in a workout in the hotel’s fitness center. I used the Active app and it was a lot of fun. I found it an encouraging experience that helped me to boost my activity to a higher level of fitness. I’m grateful for that. I have to say #WW was really smart with the suite of apps they include as part of being a member.

I think I’m learning that this is how maintenance is going to be. There is going to be an ebb and flow to this lifestyle. It is not going to be a fixed destination. One where I set myself on autopilot and I arrive. No. This is more of a get a map and learn how to read the stars, gauge the currents kind of journey. Maintenance requires all hands on deck let’s turn this ship around. Yes, I’m looking at you my Saturday morning friends. (thank you).

Here are some ways I helped myself today. What are you doing to help yourself? I hope you’re having a great week.
