October is a busy month at the Wroe house. We have lots of family birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations in addition to new program development at work. I have one week of downtime before all of the festivities and activities begin so I plan to really take advantage of it! This weekend will be full of extra-large batches of soups, curries, egg muffins and energy bites for freezing ahead of time. I am also sticking to my regular fitness and yoga routines and planning all other activities around that. I may not be able to have total control over meal schedules or my work/social calendar, but consistency of movement is something that will keep me grounded. I am allowed to prioritize my own health, even if it means showing up 15 minutes late to family dinner or getting up 30 minutes earlier to fit my exercise in.
