I started my Maymester class this Monday! And I tell you <warning: complaining ahead> a week off (when I was devoted to moving) was NOT enough time off before getting thrown head first into an intense work load for two weeks!! But I will survive :) Thanks to huge pep talks from my sister, Laura and Lindsay today I feel like I'm back on track and realize that I sometimes just need to do stuff for myself and take time to relax. I was just getting really overwhelmed (not running probably hasn't helped) and not feeling like myself, but after I took a much needed TLC night tonight...I'm feeling better than I have in weeks :)
As for my wonderful night off from life...I cleaned!!! I don't know what it is but cleaning for me has turned into major therapy! I think the whole running thing has turned into me find outlets that de-stress me...like baking and I guess cleaning can be added to the list too! Wow I'm turning into an old woman...watch out Nana!
My new-for one week-roommate just moved out so it was the perfect time for me to clean before Ali moves in! And boy did I clean, I swear my apartment smells just like comet bleach. I bleached the bathroom twice, kitchen, fridge and appliances; needless to say there are no germs in this apartment...
Pictures in case you were wondering...
Clean Tub (nothing better than being able to relax in a clean bath)
Maybe not the best organization but still...clean :)
As for my more exciting weekend, which did have its relaxing moments, Ali, Anna, Richard, Drew and I went to the pool for a few hours on Saturday. It is so nice being able to relax and just walk to the pool (no car involved)! I may not live downtown anymore...but the perks of having a pool and car washing station (which I totally used today to jump start my cleaning excursion for the night) for sure have their advantages! I am really enjoying my new apartment and the new change :)! I'm excited for everyone else to get settled in so that it will really feel like home!!
Pool day :)
As for tonight, Im going to settle into reading Anyone Out There? (random book I stole from Lee years ago) and eating my overnight oats (which were supposed to be for breakfast tomorrow but they are just so tasty I can't resist)! I'm crossing my fingers that my foot feels well enough tomorrow for me to finally go for a run...please, please?! Wish me luck :)
Cinnamon and peanut butter oats (simple and delicious)
Now for the real Good Night...hope everyone sleeps tight :)
