Day 8 of Self Care September Challenge

My Sunday funday was about recovering from the 5k and getting so more events under my belt. I went to Barre Class at the Bar Method in Rittenhouse. Lawd have mercy they worked my butt and other areas literally. I haven’t felt that much pain at one time in a long time. One thing I can say about The Bar Method my teacher Gina was hands down the most calming teacher I’ve had. She listened to me and calmed my nerves when I explained how nervous I was. My doctor a few weeks ago suggested that I take a barre class since I do a lot of running and cycling class. I can see why. They move muscles you think you move in a regular work out and you find out doesn’t matter. I love their hands on approach. When I was out of form for what we needed to do they helped me get on track!

After my work out I a few good blocks to Saxbys. I enjoyed another matcha drink aka the Big Mood. I love them I know they are naturally sweet with the raspberry syrup but I asked for a little more. It felt good to walk around one to allow my muscles to relax but I love good weather walking especially if the end result is treats from Saxbys. Oh and by the way since I had to get a bag to carry you can tell I got too much. Or was it? Treat yourself right?!

Not only was I recovering from my Saturday run I also attended Operation Wawa Road Trip! The play was phenomenal. You can see my blog on it here! So many amazing laughs and I sure could use a good laugh. These last few weeks have been full of stress. I mean like heavy stress. It felt good to dress up and put a little make up on and get out. I so wished I had taken a pic. I hate when I do that. After I got home I was able to relax!

The rest of the day I spent with one of my blogger friend. We enjoyed company at a restaurant. I’ll be posting more about that tomorrow so check out my Instagram to see what we were up to. Hint it involved amazing food and a little pipping tea!!

I ended up taking my twin back to the hospital as precaution but I’m glad that she was okay! I ended up falling asleep on the couch. So what did I notice about self care? I was super anxious when I go to a new location even with my GPS! It happens just about every time I have to be somewhere. When I went to Operation Wawa Road Trip even though I set my clothes etc out when it was time to go that anxiety settled in. I was able to push through as always by calming my nerves. I also reminded myself how often I had been feeling like this and it passes and it’s only temporary. I didn’t want to forget that and check my emotions!

How are you doing in your daily self care? What are the reminders you need to tell yourself daily as you navigate life?
