My last check-in was December 24.

So, it’s been a while.  Which is evidence supporting that a) it’s been a crazy few months, and b) my self-care has not been ideal.  (Case in point – self-care, for me, usually involves writing.  And if I’m not blogging, I’m probably not writing.)

Anyway – here’s where I’m at:pie chart

Things I learned from this #How’sMyBalance check-in

  • Come on, KEM!  There is literally NO SLICE for #spirit! It makes sense though.  Things have been pretty crazy and stressful, and when I’m stressed out, I revert to routine, rhythm, and familiarity.  I get myself back to basics – it helps me to feel grounded, centered.30-Day-Plank-Challenge
  • I’ve been going to the gym – ugh, not my favorite form of exercise, but it’s winter and the snow has kept me from trail running.  I’ve been doing a Plank Challenge for the last few days, which I think may be an urban myth…  Supposedly, if I follow a Plank Challenge schedule like the one I found online (see this website), in 30 days I’ll be able to stay in plank position for five minutes.  FIVE MINUTES.  I call bullshit.  But I’ve been trying it anyway – I’m on day five.
  • There’s been so much happening lately that I haven’t felt super-balanced; however, looking at my pie chart, I haven’t been doing TOO badly.  Sometimes we’re harder on ourselves than we need to be.

Cheers to balance!
