Day 165: This is what it feels like

So this is what stressed feels like.

This is what getting things accomplished feels like.

This is what happiness feels like.

And this is what stressed, accomplished, and happy feels like all at once.

This is my psychotic dog who begs to be taken outside every 5 minutes.

Thankfully, the beautiful scenery and warm sea breeze sets my mind free and holds my whirlwind of emotions at bay.

This is my green sludge smoothie.

Blend 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop SunWarrior, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1/2 frozen banana, 2 handfuls of spinach, and 5 ice cubes. Result? A nice brown colored frozen treat that desperately needs peanut butter.

I was too busy freaking out hosting a webinar with our company’s CEO to really notice. Then it was 5pm and I was too busy writing down the 5 billion things I needed to do in the next 24 hours to notice.

And I always notice peanut butter.

Then I went directly to spin class, still buzzing with stress and visions of deadlines floating in my head.

Daily Workout

Spin sucked! I thought my frustration would propel me into a pedal frenzy and I would sweat my stress away into a puddle on the floor. Instead I was lethargic with lead legs and zero motivation. Very disappointing.

Figuring it must be a combination of carb depletion and mental distress, I grabbed some leftover chinese takeout from the fridge and had a reality TV marathon. “Don’t Be Tardy For the Wedding” anyone? I was physically and mentally cured. Until I realized I was talking to myself.

Uh… Maybe it’s good that Peter gets here in 4 hours!!!!

He will save me from my loneliness. And carb depletion.
