Today I began my journey working from home. It’s quite interesting and I didn’t move as much as I did in the office but I got my hours in and felt good about it after. I’m glad I can stay focused. I know people who say they can’t work from home. So glad I’m not one of them.
I made dinner tonight. We ordered out for lunch (it was order out day I was told) so I cooked dinner. Dinner made me sick. I skipped ballet. I’m seeing in a time of Corona I need to pay attention still to what I put into my body. I get the honor of two barre classes tomorrow because you know I took the night off.
Today I felt okay. I wasn’t too overwhelmed. I stressed about money. Who isn’t right? Well, I guess the wealthy aren’t worried. Kinda sucks this all happening, viruses and all right after losing one of my jobs. I need to just be in the moment. I’m finding that if I stay in the moment I’m more calm.
Finally, for today. A little note for you all is that you can never watch This is Us and watch the season finale and be good to know you never need to watch it. Ha! This show is emotionally draining. Won’t do that again!
Today was a total self care day. I did a lot of nothing. I did accomplish the following:
1. Went by work at 7 am and picked up work and office items so I could work from home. We’ve gone there.
2. Prepared for my school week. I need to complete my courses. One day I need to be better off financially.
3. I wiped a laptop clean. Skills ha! I’m getting stuff done.
4. Completed Week 3, Day 1 of Phase 2 of my Beach Body Barre Blend workout. I won’t gain weight in this time of Corona.
5. Stayed in gratitude.
In all I won today. People I care about deeply are very worried about this virus going around and I don’t know how to calm their fears. Someone else I know may have the virus and so many I know are now indoors only and without income. Those with money are still not struggling so much but some of us, living paycheck to paycheck this is a hard time. This too shall pass and life will slow down and this showed me at least I really need a prudent reserve.
Now, here’s a couple photos from my day. I was mask wearing to get some groceries we needed, I complete a workout, and I used some seasonings to make some awesome chicken. Winning!! Until tomorrow.
I’ve made it, as a semi type a through the first week of this lockdown imposed on all us Californians. I get it. Covid-19 is dangerous. It however doesn’t think about my obsession to be on the go or my constant worry about money.
So…I have decided to do a daily check in and probably will continue (like this is the motivation to get me to use the blog I pay for) to blog after. Single mom, health issues, starting over, and kinda fabulous can make for a great blog. So get ready because at the end of each day I’ll get real. I’ll show the good, the bad, and the all of living and loving in a time of Coronavirus.
