And I am VERY happy that the week in my life challenge is almost over! I am laughing because you can tell that the posts and photos are getting shorter and shorter. I am losing my non stop photo taking energy
Saturday was a bumpy day. I felt like I was rushed all day, and I hate that feeling. I did have a minor panic attack during the day. More to come on that later…
Here goes Saturday…
7:15am – Out of bed, checking the weather for our run. Thinking, “I AM SO TIRED OF COLD WEATHER!!! I WANT TO RUN IN SKIRTS AGAIN!!!!!”
7:50am – Arrive to my run late. Feel stressed. Get in Stacy’s car and see Diana sitting in Caden’s car seat in this bright and happy outfit. Feel happier.
9:45am – Finish up with the 12 miler. It was a good run pace wise, but I was feeling not so hot during it. Just felt worn down and tired. I was also having some really bad vertigo. So bad I kept weaving…it is a side effect of some medicine I was taking.
9:55pm – Get picked up by Ramsey from my run. Take a post run photo. Realize my numbers are backwards.
Post run errand to the post office to mail a birthday treat.
10am – Retake my post run photo with my hands held up in the correct order
10:10am – Grab a post run breakfast at a cute little cafe.
11:40am – Say “hi” to Lola!!!
12:15pm – Drive to Ramsey’s house to get ready for the Sporting KC game, while having an internal meltdown.
PAUSE. Yes, I was full out having a meltdown in the photo above. I was stressed to the max, feeling so rushed and just straight up overwhelmed. Then I took a moment to work on my perspective and think about why I was so stressed.
I was so stressed because I was rushing to get from a run with my friends, to breakfast with my love, followed by the Sporting KC game, then to meet friends to watch the KU game.
Boo freaking woo. I thought, “I am so stressed and about to cry because I am spending the day full of things I love doing….Why am I having a meltdown right now?!?!”
On my run today, someone said the phrase, “check it before you wreck it.” This was perfect for that very moment. I needed to check my attitude before I wrecked my day. Get over it, you are doing things all day that you are CHOOSING to do. There is no need to feel stressed and feel cranky. As soon as I realized this, I felt 1000 times better. My attitude changed and I was ready to face the day with a new, positive, attitude.
1:15pm – Head to the Sporting KC game. Ramsey noticed my meltdown status and surprised me with a glass of wine. He knows how to calm me down. Then I spilled the wine in his car. He wasn’t happy. (I was sipping on wine, Ramsey was driving…no worries, we has not drinking and driving!).
2:00pm – Sit down in our seats at the game. Grab a couple Blue Moon’s.
CHEESE! First home game of the season ended with a tie. 0-0…Remember why I get frustrated at soccer games.
6:00pm – Meet some friends to watch the KU game. Rock Chalk baby. They WON! And we won with some amazing bar food!
8:30pm – Home for the night. Feeling so exhausted! I actually feel asleep next to Ramsey watching 20/20. When I woke up I turned on Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Pt 2. I immediately start crying…I love this movie!!! And I love these ninja turtle PJ pants.
10pm – Ready to go to bed. NO ALARMS set on Sunday mornings!!!!
Hope you had a great Saturday too!!!
