To those Americans, welcome back from your Thanksgiving celebrations. Whatever this entailed, I hope you felt a little extra love and gratitude and that your soul now feels a little more replenished. I could feel the good vibes from here!
Not going to lie, last week was a big ol’ fart. A gooey, icky, stinky, heavy, sad, messy fart. I was so tired. And not that kind of tired where you know its because you are working hard and being all sorts of productive. No. The kind of tired where your legs feel 100 pounds each, your back aches, and you just can’t do anything… but for no real reason. My mind, though, seemed to be more content racing around and bombarding me with some unpleasant anxiety that I (thankfully) hadn’t experienced in a good while. Rehearsals were hard to get through. I smashed my new phone. Sigh. I just hate being so tired, ya know? I hate feeling like I can’t do all the things that I want to do.
I’m not sure whether the lack of energy was more to do with nutrition and sleep, recovery related physical effects, or more to do with the mental side of things. I’ve been feeling pretty down and fighting them mental battles is exhausting… more than we realize. Regardless, I’m doing what I can to try and improve things, but also just trying to accept how I feel right now and really just….wait it out until it goes away. Sometimes thats the most you can do. I know it will change. These weeks come and go and I’m sure this next one will be different.
So. With that all being said, it feels extra extra important that I look back and see all the positive things that I accomplished last week. More than ever. Take my mind off some of the dark and pat my self on the back instead.
Last week I…
“Frugal Girl’s Guide to Living…”
Carrot Cake always comes with a smile
In the kitchen:
Baked sweet potato loaded with black bean/pepper/onion/taco mix + cheese + avocado “crema” (avocado + greek yogurt + lime + garlic powder)
Mmmmm stringy cheeeeese
Roasted Kabocha piled with same bean/taco mix + kale + egg sunny style + avocado
Same same but different
Meal prep Christmas Tree?
2 Ingredient hack of the century
When time is in short supply, there must still be cake!!
I think cake is a good place to leave things.
The rose of my week, though, were the comments that I received from all of you. Seriously, even a few words of support or understanding can truly turn a day around, and I appreciate it more than I ever thought I would. Thank you, thank you…. thank you.
Now go see the lovely Meg and join her list party. Making this list of accomplishments has seriously turned my mood around. It can do the same for you!!
Hope your week ahead isn’t a fart. And if it is… pat yourself on the back for just being the rock star that can get through it.
How would you describe your last week, in one word?
What one thing did you accomplish? What was your “rose”?
Do you ever feel exhausted for no real, known reason?
