Sorry for being M I A this weekend. I feel like my head is still M I A but I figure a post might help me get back to thinking straight!
My post last night was drunken. Oopsy!
Charity ball was fun! Everyone looked so pretty!
I was Über tired after a long day (awesome day):
- indoor cycle class (on trainers) at Reynold’s Cycle — it was good, it was sweaty, and I want to buy a trainer (replacement phone vs. trainer, hmmmm?)
- Crossfit for Runners workshop all afternoon — lots of good knowledge that I’m going to try to share at some point (I took notes) and to put to use!
- triathlon club swim (did a short set — 2100 ish — and felt like I was asleep the whole time)
but I am glad I went!
I hate that I can’t photo my eats…but they were good yesterday! There was greek yogurt, berries, butternut squash, wine, all kinds of goodies! I had kettle corn, chocolate chips, etc. in the midst of my drunkennness and feel like I would be repeating myself if I went into all the crap about how drinking makes me vulnerable and so does being too tired and being stressed and being at big social events. I had fun at the dance, though, and I’m focusing on that and not allowing myself to beat myself up for anything that I feel was “bad”. Everything’s a learning opportunity, and I am thinking of it like this:
“I will never take a step backward – sideways, diagonally, up, down, but never back.”
As a side note, I have not gotten so much love for this blog in a long time. I know I’ve said it before, but it means so freaking much to me. And I got a shout out from Tina, who I 100% look up to as an example of the kind of blog I’d like to have some day! So flattered.
Today was another busy day. This morning I went to work at the Gazette before heading to swim with one of the tri clubs in town. Then I met up with a friend who is currently the cutest pregnant woman ever for a MUCH needed, overdue reunion! She gave me my Christmas gift — espresso and an which I am so excited to try out but which is only going to fuel my caffeine addiction ;). I can’t take a picture but it looks a lot like this one:
Yay! Thanks to her and her husband for the gift. 🙂 It was really good to see her and to have a conversation–she’s also someone I really look up to! Role model alert: teacher, coach, and great source of encouragement. 🙂
Afterwards, I went to my friend’s house for Sunday Funday dinner. I love this tradition and I can’t for the life of me figure out why I took so long to start going. Note to self: you WILL feel better if you hang out with your friends for a while. I even got some pre-dinner QT with Rachel and Mel — and a much needed pep talk.
When I got home I rounded out the delish stuff I tried over there (I had lunch at like 3:30 so wasn’t hungry hungry at dinner time) with a sweet potato and almond butter with some raisins. So good. Now I’m diving headfirst into a buttload of work: writing and editing for the Gazette, readings, thinking about what I’ve got this week (too much). On the schedule:
- spin classes, bootcamps, and swimming 🙂
- buying a trainer
- replacing my phone 😦
- my writing test for Columbia
- financial aid application deadlines
- an essay and two other assignments due
- staff meeting at the gym
- physio — I want an answer
- work at the Gazette
Blahhhhhhhh. Can it be spring break yet?!
How was your weekend?
What are you
dreading looking forward to this week?
