You guys…. To say this week has been rough would be an understatement. Personally, everything is fine, but work has been killing me. I worked late last night, so by the time I left I was so out of it I went to the wrong parking lot only to find my car was on the other side of campus. Then I missed my turn for the interstate. I then spent the rest of my drive home thinking, “don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry.”
A grilled cheese courtesy of Chef Riley and an early bedtime helped calm the anxiety, but this morning, I woke up with that same sense of feeling behind in everything. I realized I needed to snap out of it and had a get-it-together moment with myself before hitting the gym.
I got to the gym around 5:00 and hopped on the treadmill. I had great plans to do a full ab workout after my run, but once I started I didn’t feel like stopping. I ran at a steady pace for 45 minutes, throwing in some sprints at the end. I realized a good run with some awesome music was exactly what I needed!
During my run, I kept telling myself that I can do anything. No matter how stressful things get, how behind I am, or how messy I let the house get, it’ll all work out. I have amazing co-workers who will help me when I need it, a husband who offers to make me grilled cheese when he sees how stressed I am, and friends to cheer me on.
After my run, I stretched for a little while and came home to get ready for work. Breakfast today is something you’ve seen many times on my blog: an English muffin topped with peanut butter and banana, served with a glass of almond milk.
With endorphins still flowing and a renewed sense of calm, I’m ready to head into my crazy day and I will destroy that to-do list. And for all my friends reading, I hope you remind yourself whenever things get rough: you can do anything. Wish me luck!
How’s your week going so far?
