Confession: not sure how ready I am to head back to work.
I have spent my weeks vacation studying and tidying and relaxing. I got into the habit of just sitting back and relaxing having one focus.
However, I want to get back to my regular weekly habits. I realized just how little steps I get in one day when I don’t work.
I realized I don’t drink near as much water when I’m off.
I kept up my regular gym routine. I didn’t want to give that up, but I refused to do any extra. I’ve made that mistake before.
Tomorrow is Monday. Back to work. I need some techniques to ‘enhance my calm’
Until then. Back to my regularly scheduled habits.
It was fish derby day in Lake Echo:
Then of course my favorite part of any Saturday is always these women
Then spent a quiet day studying and having a good cry watching PS I Love You
Then organized my work clothes.
Now I’m binge watching Grey’s and going over my notes. Again.
So I find myself now having more music downloaded on my phone from my classes in Zumba and Body Combat.
Once a week I spend time on a treadmill, and it’s the worst work out I do. I hate it. The only way I get through it is by counting songs on my Zumba playlist. They make me lose time. They make me focus on something that isn’t the time ticker on the treadmill.
This is one of my current favs; enjoy!!!!
I love the upgrade to the Fitbit dashboard that was done yesterday!!!!
And after a week of studying my ass off. I took a break. Yup. I did. I did one selfish thing this vacation and went to see a movie with my hubby and goofed off.
Since starting the new job well over a year ago, I’ve suddenly realized that my memory has gotten worse.
Not sure if that’s because of all the info I’ve crammed in has made it hard to keep anything else in it.
Maybe I’m just getting old.
I’ve been forgetting appointments and totally spacing out on things. Double booking myself at events, and just generally making me seem like a flake. Take for instance my most recent incident. I booked an appointment for a family photo for the Parish Directory. Promised I’d have us there. 15min past when I was supposed to be there they called me and I was no where near them. I rescheduled, apologizing profusely. Then tonight, showed a half hour early!!! What the heck?! I felt stupid and absent minded.
I am not sure how I’m going to combat this but I think I’ll be using my phone calendar a lot more. A lot.
How do you guys keep everything straight?!
I am having anxiety about this mid term and exam.
I got some good tips tonight during class. One big one is that my ability to ‘write on’ could end up being the reason I fail. Point form with a little ‘meat’ of explanation will be what I focus on.
However, getting the information into my head long enough may be an issue. Ugh. This is stressful.
Just a little snack while studying…
Picked that up at the dollar store!
Up early and ready to sweat
Oh yeah. I’m a hot mess and they are just glowing
The whole family is going out today
Where were completely grossed out
But had some other great fun too!
And then we had our first BBQ of the year
I rocked Fitbit’s 2016 Goal Day
Yup. It was a good first day of vacay!!!
Well, not so fun yesterday was my third aura migraine in two weeks. Seeing my Dr next week.
I am on vacay!!!!!
And just because it was pretty it’s the full moon tonight.
And that explains SOOO much today!!!
Today’s wisdom has been interrupted by my third aura preceded migraine in two weeks. I usually only get two a year.
It’s not pounding pain, it’s nausea and dizziness that’s killing me. I could barely get home, the motion of driving the car was brutal on me.
I made an appointment with my Dr for next week. These have got to stop. I can barely function.
And now. Bed. Drugs first. Then bed.
