Putting your needs on the LIST!

How are you all doing?  It's been a busy, crazy month for me - and I wonder if you are all feeling it too?  It's been quiet around the Facebook page in sharing our Fitness Challenges, but I know how things are for us in working on getting all of our ducks in a row and keeping up with our obligations!  It's a hard balance ladies  - but you can do it!  Baby steps. . . . 

This week, I just want to encourage you to put your needs on the list too - you know, the list!  The BIG list of things you need to take care of each day.  You must start thinking about what you need and making a point to do at least one thing per day for yourself towards your healing and empowerment.  After all, who else can take care of you,  but YOU!?  Please share with us on the Facebook page one thing you are going to do for you to help you become more "fit" in mind, spirit, or body this week.  We can inspire each other and use our community to support one another in learning how to do this!

So much of learning to work with our bodies with  this thing called PCOS and meeting the unique challenges we face is being in a place of knowing how to nurture ourselves into a more balanced life.  Healthy foods, adequate rest, emotional  release, loving movement, and a sense of acceptance of ourselves in whatever stage of the journey we are on with our PCOS are all pieces of the puzzle that make up the whole picture of Power (ing) Up for PCOS.

As you all know, fitness is a part of the puzzle.  Choosing to take a cleansing walk or raise our spirits by dancing to some favorite tunes can become such a healing part of our journey through PCOS.  In starting out, we don't see the whole picture yet - but in being able to fit the pieces together as we go along , we will find that each day brings the vision of being empowered and healthy into a clearer focus.  Although I am the one needing to spur you on to greater fitness goals, this week I feel that pausing to fit in the piece of self-nurturing is a necessary and timely part of the Fitness Challenge!

What do you think?  Does nurturing yourself come easily for you?  Share with us your thoughts about this topic on the Facebook page and let's learn how self-nurturing and loving care is all part of FUNtastic PCOS Fitness!

See you around Facebook y'all!
