Sharing our Spoons Week 9

“Sharing Our Spoons” will be a weekly link-up where you are able to find support and encouragement to focus on your entire health. Not just physical but all of you. For this link-up you will be able to choose holistic goals to help you achieve optimal health. The five goals include: Physical, Mental/Emotional, Spiritual, Something Fun and a Bonus of something that will get us out of our comfort zone.

  1. Physical: Exercise at least 3 times this week.  Ok, I only fit in one workout.  And it was half assed.  No excuses, just didn't make the time for it.  I will try harder this week :)
  2. Mental/Emotional:  Read.  Snow Flower and the Secret Fan was a great book! But It took me what seemed like forever.  Mostly because I had to jump on the computer and look at foot binding and read up on all the 19th Century China stuff I didn't pay attention to in school.  I read three more Janets.  Wicked Appetite, which might be one of my favorites of all her books.  Full Bloom and Full House are her typical books but both so good I read them each in a day.  I started Naughty Neighbor last night and finished it just now while Alex took a nap.  We are about to take a trip to pick up  more books waiting at the library for me.  Anthony still working though his first book but has decided to read at least 4 chapters a day! Yup, he is my son!
  3. Spiritual:  Going to try something new this week.  I need to make more me time.  And maybe that would fit better in #2, but I think it fits well here too.  I don't take enough time to really listen to what my heart wants.  Mostly I just do whats right by everyone else.  I realized the other day that I have no idea what I want from life outside of my family and friends.  
  4. Something fun:  I think we are going to attack the "Summer List" over the next few days. Still working away at our list.  The night swim was lots of fun. Who knows what we will do this week.  What's on your Summer Bucket List?
  5. BONUS: I was asked to make a video of my story and life on the transplant list.  Ive been putting it off, but I think I am ready to start it.  First step, writing it all out on paper.  Should be enough to figure out over the week right?

Don't forget to stop by A New Kind of Normal.  Join the fun and see what the others are up to this week!!
