I had an appointment today with my naturopath. She really is wonderful and I always look forward to my time with her. It feels more like gabbing with a really knowledgeable girlfriend rather than a doctors appointment.
I told her about my goals for the year and how I wanted to start fresh with my health. I explained to her above all else how I wanted my energy back. Energy that’s been missing for years. We talked about how I never ever feel refreshed when I wake up in the morning- not just post-baby but for the past 5 or 6 years atleast. She’s given me some great tips, diet suggestions and supplements to get me going in the right direction.
Unfortunately, since I am nursing we can’t go full throttle on my adrenal fatigue but even getting some energy back in these next few months will be wonderful. A good start.
I started one of my exercise classes tonight as well. It’s a Deep Water Workout class done in the deep end of the pool with a floatation belt on. It was hard. I ached. In a good way. I intend to work out two more times a week on my own, as a minimum. Time to bust out some work out videos and getting sweatin’ in the basement. It felt so good to get active again since I’ve done very little since Josephine’s arrival. I haven’t even been walking like Abby and I did everyday for a few months because it’s too chilly here to take a little babe out for long in the stroller.
I ate well today. I made health goals for the future and started working on some current issues with the help of my naturopath. I exercised. I spent time snuggling and playing with Josie. I did crafts, read books and played with paper bag puppets with Abby. Now I get to go snuggle up for a good night’s rest next to my man. A good day, for sure.
