I had this epic brief moment of panic earlier today. I was going over my Google calendar for the next couple weeks and freaked out because of how much I have to do and how little time I have to do it.
I’ve got a work dinner tomorrow night, youth group Wednesday night, an alumni event for my alma mater Thursday night. Starting Thursday, I’m house/dog sitting again until the 25th. The weekend of the 26th/27th, I’m moving. Nothing far, just across town, but no less I have to pack up all of my belongings at some point in time. Throw work and half marathon training in the mix plus a 5k this weekend and it was just enough to almost send me over the edge.
I took a few deep breaths (and ate multiple pieces of chocolate out of my candy jar) and reminded myself that stressing out won’t make anything better. It;s not worth it and certainly won’t help the situation at all. In all honesty, stressing out will probably make it worse. I’ll take it one day at a time, get done what I have to get done, and everything will be just fine. Right?
Just some leftovers tonight – nothing special, but I love when leftovers make for an easy lunch to pack! I ate the rest of the tempeh vegetable dish from a few nights ago.
I think I liked it better the second time around.
I may not have a Valentine this year, but I still got valentine’s! So fun! I had every intention of buying some to pass out but today crept up on me! Seriously, how are we halfway through February? The sucker made a good afternoon snack, along with the aforementioned chocolate. It’s not Valentine’s Day without chocolate.
After work, it was Zumba time! I ran for a bit on the track before class and did 2 miles in 19:40 (9:50 pace). I think if there hadn’t been a TON of people (including a random preschool class) on the track, I could have been just a bit faster. That’s okay. I had to conserve some energy for shaking my booty! I convinced Andi to join in tonight! Yay for friends trying out one of my favorite classes! Such fun tonight.
I threw together a strawberry banana smoothie almost immediately after getting home. I had 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 banana, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, and 1 cup almond milk. I sprinkled just a bit of granola on top. It felt more like a milkshake than a smoothie. So good.
Time to go do a bit of packing! Anyone want to come do it for me? JUST kidding, the anal retentive side of me would not handle someone else doing my packing well at all.
