This weekend was just too jam packed with things to do. That whole saying, "there's just not enough hours in the day" definitely fit my entire weekend to a tee.
I've been working on a website for my job for awhile; since it needed to be done for Monday when we release our new menu, I felt a tad overwhelmed. (I really try to make this blog about anything and everything BUT my job because I spend way too much time thinking about it already, but it's the reason that I've been MIA). We had a staff meeting to introduce the new items and address other issues, I helped with menus, took photos, and edited photos... I'm tired of looking at a computer screen. Isn't that ironic, as I sit here and blog?
I lost a ton of sleep on Friday because of my stress levels. I thought to myself that I shouldn't take a melatonin to help me sleep because I didn't want to feel groggy the next morning, but instead I had about an hour of tossing and turning sleep. I even resorted to the couch because the hubby started snoring, but only Luna fell asleep, I just laid wide awake.
So instead of moping around I hit the gym hard after a night of not sleeping. I've been completely motivated by friends, customers, and family members loyal support. The hearing, "You look great D", or "Good job I can tell you're doing something, you look awesome," is really keeping me on track. Hearing a stranger or two tell me I have great style while I was in the check out line also doesn't hurt.
I think I'm exuding some sort of confidence I never thought I would ever have. Hopefully, it stays that way. But hopefully, I'll also learn to use my workouts as a way to de-stress from my day or mentally prepare myself for my day, instead of keeping that pent up tension that I have from the daily goings on in life. I'm still learning here people.
I did have a nice lunch with my Dad, which has been long overdue. It was a nice tradition that we picked up for a good year, that I was happy to have back again. He's been having a hard couple of weeks and I was happy to listen to him vent. He lost his brother and is a little stressed. Sorry to say I didn't know my uncle, or any of my father's family really, but I hate to see anyone I love sad.
After an unexpected, huge, busy, day at work on Saturday, I was totally prepared for a huge Super Bowl Sunday, only to have it completely flop. Oh well, I guess when a local team is in the big game, everyone decides to keep game time at home to stay safe. There's always next year, right?
I'm looking forward to Monday so much. I love Mondays. A little work, a little guitar, a little me time, and a lot of home time with my family. Basically, a lot of what I love. Happy Monday everyone!
