Woke up at 7:30 this morning so I could get a lot of stuff done. The only thing I’ve done today is go on a run with my dog. Which I’m pretty sure was canceled out by all of the crap I ate today.
I feel so dull lately. It may be that I went from working 20 hours, to almost 30 hours this week. Hopefully I can find something to change my mindset fast. Especially since it sounds like 30 hours a week will be my new minimum. Good thing about more hours: health insurance, sick leave, vacation days, larger paycheck. Bad thing about more hours: less time to concentrate on exercise, less time for reading, less time for creativity.
Basically, I’m going to have to be a lot more organized so that I’m able to accomplish what I want with this new work schedule.
I’m going to start my monthly goals for October tonight. Then by the beginning of the month I can have it all figured out. I’ll also start creating a schedule for days when I’m working, and days that I’m not. This should definitely help pull me out of the rut.
“You were not born to be tested by the system, you were born to test the system and put it on trial…Picking up the whole human family and carrying it into the new century. That is what you were born for.”—Van Jones (via whatyoureallyneedtoknow)
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”—Buddha (via notgoodwithadvice)
Today on my way home from Cody’s I bought myself some chocolate frosting. I don’t think I have ever been a person who eats their feelings, but today I just couldn’t keep it together. Turns out that chocolate frosting couldn’t even make me feel any better.
I’m frustrated about work.
I’m frustrated about my car.
I’m frustrated that I spent money on junk that I knew wouldn’t make me feel any better.
Basically, I’m frustrated that I let myself get frustrated over such little things in the first place.
Time for yoga, it never disappoints me in situations like this.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”—Mark Victor Hansen (via antl3rs)
Got home from my weekly work meeting this morning and started my week 3 day 3 C25K training! I’m only taking two rest days a week, instead of four so I’m blazing through the program :) it feels soooooo good!! After getting done with my day 3 I did the POP Pilates Inner Thigh Insanity workout. I didn’t feel like it challenged me enough today, I’m thinking that maybe investing in some ankle weights might change that? I dunno though… if you have any advice on how to make it more challenging send me a message!
Anyway, time to go get ready for work! I’m excited to spend my weekend with Cody!
