My weekend involved a whole lot of:
- working – and weekends feel busy to me so the time went by quickly!
It went something like this yesterday: wake up, feel guilty for falling asleep with chocolate on my face Friday night, feel too sore/tired to train, watch the Today show instead, notice that Jenna Wolfe is jacked and want to be her, begin wondering if I should have taken the acceptance to Columbia, miss my gramma, realize it’s time for work, walk there to chill out, have a fun day, come home, resume freaking out, have a good heart to heart with my mom, work up the energy to go to my gal pal’s wine and cheese birthday celebration, cheer up thanks to chit chat (CrossFit and chiropractic even came up), come home, decide that I can be whatever I want to be and I’m going to be a good one, sleep.
Today was much less dramatic than yesterday. I think I got through whatever I needed to yesterday, realized that if I was meant to go to Journalism school last year I still would be in another year and decided that reapplying would be easier and I’d only be a stronger candidate down the road, remembered that I love what I’m doing right now and that I’m on a “vision quest”, and then occupied myself accordingly today. I joined in on the fun at Strongman Sunday at CrossFit. It was fun today–we did some Jefferson deadlifts:
followed by some Steinman squats (these I was not so…compatible?…with) some grip strength work, a tug of war faceoff, and death by frontsquats (1st minute 1 squat, 2nd minute 2, 3rd minute 3…13 minute 13, 14 minute DIE). My mom picked me up (I ambitiously ran the 6km to the gym, all uphill !) and we spent the afternoon together. Coffee, a bit of shopping, chit chatting…just the mother daughter time I needed today. Now I’m just waiting on these guys (bacon wrapped chicken thighs…omnomnom) to finish…
before I head to a staff meeting.
Tomorrow I’m working all day and then am looking forward to CrossFit and teaching spin. It’ll be a long day to start the week (I’ll leave at 7:30 and get home at 9, probably)…but full of good stuff. Luckily I have Tuesday and Wednesday off to get my errands and chores taken care of. I can’t believe it’s the end of October already!
Happy Sunday/start to the week!
