Woof. Monday was a doozy. Not only did work fly by because of the butt loads of things I had to do, but my no excuses list is really keeping me accountable. I feel like I know each day what I want to get out of that, that is setting intentions at its finest. Now on to regular programming…
Edit: Ps check out my guest post over on Melissa’s blog… please?
I would trade… the snail pace mail for all my packages to arrive! I am not sure if it is DC or this building, but I never receive any packages even near the date I should. I look forward to those gems, it is like a break from the routine of the day. I will always be a kid in a candy shop with packages and mail.
I would trade… this humidity spike yet again (frizzy hair to the max) for some goddess hair type that is not affected by weather. I am telling you, no matter what I do, frizz attacks my head when I exit the building. Hello frizz head.
I would trade… my stomach bloating and pain for some mellow thoughts. When my anxiety spikes, so does my stomach issues. It has been really bad the last few days and I know TMI, but intense bloating that makes wearing any kind of waist attire painful. I know I have had some high trigger moments the last two days so this comes as no surprise. Any helpful tips out there for how to reduce bloating?
I would trade… my terrible impatience for Thursday for a time leap to Thursday. Ha, time travel would be nice. I tend to always get so impatient when I know something is coming up or something is going to happen. It really kills me because all I can think about is seeing my dad. Good part is though the week is somehow seeming to fly by. It could also be the fact that I keep adding to my dad list… sorry dad!
I would trade… the heat rash covering my back for some sort of cure. I came back form my bike trip in high school with this mysterious rash covering my body. At that time, it was very pronounced and super itchy. I could barely wear clothes! The doctor said it was heat rash and at the time medication helped. Each summer though it kept coming back. The doctor finally said it really wasn’t curable and I just have to be careful in the heat when I sweat in clothes. Gross, sorry kids, but true. This past month it has been itchy as ever and last night I could not stop itching!
I would trade… my lack of clothes creativity to finding that work inspiration again. I am re-wearing a lot of the same work outfits over and over lately. I know I could add some spice, mix and match, but I have just not been so inspired. Blah. I need Cait to come dress me!
I would trade… my ghost skin tone for some summer bronze tan. I tan really easily but I just haven’t had ANY outside tanning time. I grew up on a beach so this is just so strange. I hate being a grown up and having to work. Who said the real world was easy? I want some bronze action stat.
I would trade… my work kicking into high gear for a gradual settling into the fast paced mode. Yesterday was a freaking whirlwind. I didn’t even realize but the next few weeks are long work wise and a whole lot of stuff going on. On top of that,I still need to actively be recruiting mentors. Eek.
I would trade… missing the Degrassi season premiere last night for actually being able to see it in the moment. I know there will be reruns, hello Degrassi basically plays non stop, but still. Judge all you want, but I have basically seen every episode of that show. It has had like 100 season premieres but I still love it. The cast has changed and I still love it. I am a sucker for this show. Now I just need to find when I can watch a rerun of this premiere!
I would trade… the phrase ‘only this one time’ for the reminder that one time is still one time. I think this is a phrase I use a lot for excuses and I felt myself gravitating towards that last night. I worked really hard to stay on track but it was hard and about 95% successful. Still, no excuse for that last 5%.
I would trade… boring food for some food I am craving. Just lacking satisfaction lately with my eats. Kind of a bummer. I can’t wait for my own place so I can make some great creations and start posting more recipes. Right now I barely cook besides the roasting or steaming of vegetables. So sad. So sad.
Now go take Tuesday on!
Questions: What would you trade up this Tuesday? Any guilty pleasure shows out there?
