Ok, I had possibly the worst start to my day, like, EVER. But it ended up ok in the end. We will get to the end eventually though. Let’s start with the worst.
Woke up. 7:40. K, I am supposed to be, like, LEAVING for work. Nevahmind, I will hurry.
Ok, who cut off the heat? It is like minus 10 with wind chill in my bedroom. See brown sweater. Toss it on.
Run down the stairs, grabbing the PILE of stuff to take with me to work, breakfast, lunch, snack and a package I need to mail.
Run out the door, throw my stuff in the car, including breakfast, which should have been this:
banana, peanut butter and caramel Oikos.
Instead, my yogurt HITS the floor, splattering all over my car rug and up the side of my pants.
Great, I’m going to smell like yogurt all day.
Get to work, make it inside, set down my packages and run back out to get my car rug, so I can wash it before permanent damage is done. [I just realized that I left the rug at work after the washing. FAIL.] Also realize that the WARM BROWN SWEATER is also ITCHY BROWN SWEATER.
Feeling quite stressed, and with the day still new, I proceeded to set Pandora to play Lady Gaga Radio. Which is God’s gift to us on stressful days, I have decided. Seriously, it rocks.
With Gaga in the background I proceeded to calm down, with the help of a few well timed yoga breaths, and eventually get my work done.
LUNCH was worth the trouble it caused me to pack. [Ok, this was the easiest lunch to pack AND make, ever. I’m just being a drama queen.]
Half a head of boston lettuce, naturally fresh ranch, and a black bean burger. Scarfed it down. [And by scarfed, I mean that Stacy and Clinton did not even have time to show the prospective makeover candidate the visa card before I was done.]
After a quick trip to the post office, and a large dent made in my wallet, I finished my work and snacked on an apple and pb.
Still working on that container of Whole Foods pb from Nashville. That’s like a record or something.
Also a record may be the fact that I did in fact manage to get all my work done today. I was in quite a state in the beginning, so it was quite the miracle.
Home, and then dinner, in that order.
brown rice, chicken leg, broccoli + carrots.
After which I had a dessert of GRAPES
and ICE CREAM.
Instead of vegging out, as I was feeling should be the case, I pulled up Biggest Loser on Hulu [since my Tuesday schedule is wacked up I always miss my favorites, AI and BL. 😦 ] and proceeded to do an interval workout while being inspired by people changing their lives. LOVE MIGGY.
I worked out for an hour, doing a combination of weights, cardio and yoga. Twas lovely and I felt like a new person once done. No better way to end a stressful day than with a good workout, eh? [What do I think I am, Canadian, eh?]
What’s your favorite de-stress move?
Seriously, Lady Gaga on Pandora does it for me.
