The title of this post is misleading, but also relevant. I have been going through a lot recently and its gotten to a boiling point. It is personal and this is not the place to get into it, but I want to stress the point of taking care of yourself.
As much as I love cake, there is such thing as too much of it. Figuratively speaking, I have indulged in a dream world to escape what I have been going through, yes I am aware that it not the healthiest thing. Additionally, for my birthday I had indulged in cake, cupcakes, ice cream, etc.. Now I am done with the indulgence emotionally and physically. I need to take care of myself and I started this week.
I weight trained twice this week (30 min of upper body on Tuesday and 30 min of lower body on Thursday), which has made me feel incredible sore and relieved of some internal tension. I also finally opened up more about all the thoughts consuming me to 2 close friends, which helped me get out of my own head. I also cut back on the sweets this week, which is why I had a headache most of the week.
It is all a good thing. Sometimes in life you go through shit. It can remind you that you need to take care of yourself and take it all one step at the time.
Today, I am meeting up with my best friend from Michigan, his wife and kid. They just moved a few hours away and I am incredibly excited to see him. He really helped keep me grounded in graduate school. I hope I get to see him more and more now, instead of the few times we play catch up over Skype throughout the year. 🙂
I plan to fill my life with as much love as possible and continue to care for myself.
