My Stay At Home Healing Routine, so far

I’m settling seamlessly into my new Monday-Friday Home Alone Healing routine. My days are actually pretty full and, so far, they’re flying by. Here’s how I fill them:

  • make and sip Flor-Essence tea
  • supervise and/or make packed lunches and breakfast for Lucy and Bayla
  • juice and guzzle: ginger, beet, celery, spinach, carrot & lemon
  • down a slew of supplements
  • bark orders at Lucy and Bayla and/or enjoy pre-school time with Lucy and Bayla
  • walk Lucy and Bayla to school
  • walk to the Gratitude Statue and back for my gratitude and affirmation meditations (5k)
  • enjoy peanut butter and toast and tea
  • catch up on email, blogging, blog reading, the news, do a little housework, maybe prepare a decent dinner
  • do a 30 minute excercise tape
  • read, dally, nap etc
  • jog to the Gratitude Statue (unless the pathways are snowed over)
  • dinner, family time
  • enjoy an episode or two of “Arrested Development”, “The Office” or “The Simpsons” (with popcorn, if possible)
  • sleep.

This coming week will be post-chemo, of course, so who knows what my routine will be. But I’m hoping my health stays fabulous and I’m able to keep enjoying this nurturing groove.

    You're doing 2 5K's a day to the Gratitude statue and back? I am going to stop whining right now about my training.

    The round trip to the statue is 5k and I move pretty slowly some days. The route used to be my brisk morning jog/nordic walking ritual and the gratitude was kind of secondary. These days I spend almost as much time standing at the Statue reflecting, thanking and intending as I do walking/jogging!

    In fact, the statue has taken on so much meaning for me that for the very first time in my 44 years I actually have a burning desire to travel. I've decided that for our 5 year surviver celebration, the four of us will travel to Appledoon Netherlands and (hopefully) stay walking distance from the original “Man with Two Hats” monument. I do hope that happens!

    You can link to both statues and some of the story here:

    I'm pumped!
