We meet again on another Friday. This week the quarantine started to feel “normal,” which I think always happens when any pattern continues long enough. I am setting up zoom sessions with friends left and right and finally realizing that I better buckle in.
I’m sure so many of you also did not think this would go on as long as it’s looking like it will. So I am emerging from the joggers-every-day mentality and am back on the routine/focus on your health mindset. Honestly, when else will you have no community obligations? No travel plans or busy schedules? No frivolous or unnecessary errands? If you have multiple kids and are homeschooling – that is major and you’re doing amazing. Because you’re doing your best and putting your kids before yourself. And that’s all you can do!
For the rest of us, there are really no excuses. No reasons why you can’t go on a walk in the neighborhood every day or do that 20 minute YouTube workout daily. There’s no reason I shouldn’t emerge from my house in a month (if we’re lucky!) feeling more like my pre-baby self. I feel so close but not quite there, so I’ve made it a priority again.
Do I regret taking a week or two to lounge, watch an Ozark marathon and put on a face mask every night? Nope. Because it was glorious. But I don’t want to come out of this quarantine with a slew of bad habits I need to break (like wine every day – I love it, but do I need it?), so I’m trying to get back to my healthy(er) self.
