So I’ve been having a complete off week in which I haven’t felt like doing ANYTHING good for myself. I went to bootcamp Sunday night and then to visit my g-ma and drove home feeling pretty fantastic after the hard workout and nice visit. I don’t know what happened between then and Monday but for three days I just did not feel my best. I haven’t felt exactly sick, just lacking energy and motivation. The only thing I can chalk this off week up to is stress. This is my first week in the classroom with my new students, my Mister is away for school for another 4 weeks, and my puppy is waking me up at all hours of the night. My biggest problem with stress is that I succumb to it too easily. I let it get me down and then I quit eating right and exercising regularly, and then I feel even worse. It’s a terrible cycle. I did have a nice visit with an old friend last night and I’m thinking that might have been just enough of a rejuvenation to set me back on track. I’m also going to see Brent at SFL after work today, which I hate doing when I’ve had a bad week, but I NEED to do so that it is only 1 bad week and that it doesn’t turn into 2.
I do have a couple great recipes to share with you soon too – Peach and Cucumber salsa, and Pumpkin Overnight Oats. I’ll be back tonight with these recipes, some pictures, and an update of how SFL and tonight’s bootcamp treat me!
