It was an accident, I swear.
This morning, I woke up, did some work on my applications, and ogled at the snow for a few hours.
My breakfast got rid of a bunch of berries that were on the verge of going bad. Love not fresh produce…NOT!
I was hungry shortly after so I had an early lunch. I mixed up a salmony spaghetti squash creation but it made me gag a little (so I guess “meatless Tuesday” isn’t really accurate) so I remade a blander but better bowl.
I picked up a spin class and a yoga class for an instructor at the Western gym who was sick. I ran on the treadmill before the class but the whole time my stomach felt yucky. I got four kind of slow miles in and the classes had good energy (all girls…I’m going to be single FOREVER) so I call this afternoon a success.
The gym wasn’t that busy but I know next week when people come back to classes it will EXPLODE. It’s always a pain to get a treadmill in the New Year’s resolution time of year and in the weeks leading up to spring break/beach vacations.
I used yesterday’s playlist again for spin but I made a new yoga CD so stay tuned for that post! Tomorrow’s a busy day but I’ll try to get it up as a relatively quick but fun post for you guys to zen out to.
After the class, my appetite was back so I had a quick granola bar. I started to feel really sick though, and I was not in the mood to go home and be miserable so I did what any normal girl would do…I headed to Chapters. I was hoping to buy a cycling, running, or triathlon magazine but I ended up getting the latest copy of Outside (adventure travel, active lifestyle,
hot cover mans, etc.).
I sat and had a coffee and reflected on anything but my aching tummy or my stinky applications. I can’t figure out why my attitude is so off…except that I’m doubting myself. I don’t think anyone knows if a certain field is the right one, but that little voice that says I can’t be a journalist is trying to be so loud. Shut up, I say, because even if I go to school for it and find out it’s not for me, I’ll be better for it. So guess what? I felt better after my little break and am determined to get these things done in the next 3 days so I can send them out (maybe expedite them?) this Friday.
When I got home I had a quick shower and made my accidentally veggie dinner, which is pretty boring considering I eat it for lunch probably four days a week.
Even though dinner was kind of late, I just found myself hungry (must be all that organizing I did for my Ryerson application tonight) and decided to have a bedtime snack.
And now I’m watching the premiere of The Biggest Loser, trying to stop thinking about those pesky applications, and trying to get excited for tomorrow. After a morning (cold) run with Saran, Bonnie is coming down and we are going to the states. I’m ignoring the fact that I have to have an ultrasound of my thyroid and all the anxiety that goes along with that…and focusing on the fact that we will probably have a blast bonding for an hour en route either way (my doctor is over the bridge), on the possibility that we could go to Target, and on the feeling that Santa is coming (tomorrow’s our Christmas!). Thursday is also looking good because I’m heading to Guelph to try some indoor rock climbing with another friend I don’t see enough of! That leaves less time for my training, my applications, etc. but also less time for stressing…hopefully!
Hope you’re having a good week!
Do you ever give up on a meal halfway through to start fresh?
Have you ever climbed?
Do you watch The Biggest Loser?
