What a busy week! I can honestly say that I haven’t had a proper day off since last Tuesday. I’m not one to complain [yet, I will later in the summer haha] but having today off feels nice. I don’t feel rushed into anything, I know I have some catching up to do on laundry, grocery shopping and getting my mom a Mother’s Day gift. But I have the whole day. A complete day to myself!
What has gone on this week? I’ve had my first full week of my #MayNoSandwichChallenge. Although it has been challenging at work some days when I just want my hummus wrap, I’ve been enjoying all the new grains. This morning I am eating fareek! I found it in Wegmans and decided to give it a go. It has a nutty flavor and depth. Almost if you crossed oatmeal with quinoa. I poured some vanilla almond milk on it and mixed it with berries. It’s pretty good…but that reminds me I need to get more cereal when I go shopping.
At work, the lines are getting longer and things are getting more steamy. I mean that in the temperature sense, not between the staff. It was over 80 yesterday and we were all sweating like a walrus at the beach. Finally we got two fans up from the basement to cool us off. My boss needs to fix the AC. He’s rich. He can do it #ComeOnGregor!
This week just seems to have flew. I don’t really know what I even did. How sad is that? I want to be in the moment and more mindful, but I can honestly say the days ran together. I knew I had a big week, and part of getting through that was telling myself on Sunday that I would take each day as it comes and be present. I succeeded in that because work didn’t feel too long, but it all feels like one day.
I am still not running as my groin is still sore. I tried yesterday and it felt bad, so I stopped. Being on the elliptical takes so much mental energy! All I want to do is get outside in this beautiful weather, but I have to accept that I cannot. Not today. Not until it feels better. Alas, the woes of someone who loves running!
I still need to buy a bike, and if I do not do that today, I will probably wait till I move in the beginning of June. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to ride it in the coming weeks. All I know is that I look out the window at CTB and I want to be out riding. I want to feel more connected to nature.
That’s all for now 🙂
How do you get outside?
Is your work more or less busy at certain points of the year?
