day 87.

Today I went to acupuncture and packed for my vacation.

Tomorrow I head to San Francisco for a super exciting weekend of queers, kink, and adventure. I will be off this space for a few days, practicing a different kind of self-care.

I can’t wait!!

day 81.

Wednesday. Midweek self-care for real.

Today I treated Wyatt and I to brunch at gravy. Brunch is my favorite meal. Seriously, there is something so special and decadent about brunch. Maybe it’s the jew in me (we really value a good brunch, I feel), but brunch will always have a delicious spot in my heart.

Then I had counseling. Which was great and it was really nice to be talking about some different things for a change. I feel like I’ve been processing the same situation for months when I go there (which basically I have been) and it feels really good to be moving on a lot. I’m proud of myself for the work I’ve been doing.

And then acupuncture. Oh how I love acupuncture. One of the best acts of self-care I have prioritized for myself in recent months. It just does wonders for me.

Next Wednesday I’ll be on spring break and headed out of town, so I won’t have my usual midweek replenishment. I’m really looking forward to being off work and school, but I’ll also be looking forward to my next Wednesday self-care extravaganza to come.

day 74.

It’s nearing the end of the term and I feel like I barely have a minute to slow down. Today was about catching up a bit and getting a lot of work done. I did a good chunk of homework, finished planning the art class I’m teaching this weekend, worked on a birthday gift, and worked on the semi-surprise birthday party I’m throwing for my plp Wyatt on Friday. Oh, and relaxed at acupuncture. Not a bad Wednesday for self-care at all. Now to just get through the next week in one piece!

day 60. leap day.

So, a couple weeks into January I realized that 2012 is a leap year. Which means that technically, this project should be called 366 days of self-care, but I like the way 365 sounds better so I decided not to change it. It does mean that I have one more day to get this right, and I’m ok with that.

Epic Wednesday self-care for the last day of February:

  • counseling
  • acupuncture
  • garden prepping
  • and I bought myself a bouquet of my favorite flowers, pink ranunculus:

Working on setting new goals and intentions for March. More to come.

day 53.

Wednesdays. Quickly shaping up to be my favorite days. My “me” days.

Today was acupuncture. I couldn’t quite to my magic place, but it was still a nice solid hour of rest.

Also homework and friend time. And palo santo before bed.

I feel like I’m on the edge of getting sick, and I’m worried as I’m entering crunch time for the quarter at school. Really I think it’s just the lack of sleep. I don’t like feeling burnt out and stretched too thin. That’s where I’m at right now and I think I need to work more on prioritizing. These next few weeks really need to be about finishing the quarter while also making time for me. We’ll see how I do.

day 46.

Wednesdays are turning into big-time self-care days. It’s nice to have a day off of work in the middle of the week to get shit done and take really good care of myself.

Today I had counseling. I decided to go back to every week due to having a lot more stuff come up emotionally recently. I think it’s a good move on my part for now. And it is really helpful to talk stuff out and feel really safe to do that kind of work.

After counseling, I had acupuncture. An hour on that table is all I need sometimes. She did some emotional work on me as well this week. I’m trying to hit it from all angles. Can’t hurt.

I also went to clary sage herbarium today for the first time. I picked up a clearing flower essence blend for removing negativity. I was making my own blend for awhile using bach’s flower essences and a gem essence, mostly for stress relief and anxiety, but I stopped using it awhile ago. I haven’t really felt the need for it, in a good way. I was talking today with my housemate about how when things feel good, we let simple self-care stuff slide. But when things aren’t so awesome we return to them. Because they help, even if it’s just a mental shift that’s happening. And how really, I should be doing this kind of maintenance self-care all the time. This project is partly about breaking that pattern for me. So I’m going to be more intentional about taking flower essences, and I think adding this clearing blend to the mix is really good for me.

I also bought a delicious loaf of rosemary green olive bread and some brie to go with it. And some coconut macaroon ice cream! I shouldn’t have gone to the grocery store so hungry, but I think I made some good choices in terms of food splurges.

And day 15 of fatshion february!

day 39.

A day full of self-care and serious body love.

The highlights:

  • A new bustier for a party I’m going to this weekend. It is really hot and made me feel so good about my curves. Plus it was on sale for $10, can’t beat that.
  • Counseling. Not as intense as last time (thank god), but still really good and productive. I feel like I’m getting somewhere, at least.
  • Acupuncture. I went to that space that I only get to when I’m on the table. I really like that space.
  • Unexpected and delicious dinner times with a bestie. I ate some of the most amazing pickled things I’ve ever had. And I feel pretty strongly about pickles.
  • More late night art making. Really lifting my spirits right now.
  • Fatshion February day 8.
