Hola. I am so glad that this day is almost over (I still have a night class). I don’t know that I’ve felt this stressed out in a long time… maybe ever. Finals and midterms are pretty horrible, but now that I have to think about what I’m going to “do” with my life three months from now… AH.
Thanks for your sleep advice. Over the past three years, I’ve tried Ambien, Ambien CR, melatonin, Sleepytime/ Sleepytime Extra tea, pillow spray, deep breathing, etc. I’m trying to be less reliant on taking pills, but sometimes it’s the only thing to do! Hopefully after this week it’ll be easier, when I’m not feeling so overwhelmed.
I took a little time this morning to do a Yoga Download: Power Yoga #4 (a 36-minute donation class). It was really challenging, but felt great to push my body and wake it up.
For lunch, I had a weird wrap:
On a piece of Lavash bread, I spread hummus, a Laughing Cow Light wedge, half a mashed sweet potato, Tofurky, and spinach. It was a great combination of textures and flavors… very tasty! I think the sweet potato was what brought it from good to great.
I also had a navel orange and a 99% chocolate truffle.
I’d been planning on going for a run outdoors, but there’s still a little too much ice on the ground. Skipping two days of cardio won’t kill me… but falling and getting hit by a car might! If I have time after class tonight and I’m not too tired, I might try to squeeze in another yoga session.
I just had this Gala apple… my last one! Time to make a stealthy trip to the cafeteria…
I think we’re watching Volcano in my class tonight, which should make it go by faster than three hours of lecture about felsic and mafic magma.
How’s your Monday going so far?
See you later!
