Busy week – recap! ✨

Hello hello hello!

First of all, Happy Friday!!! We made it through the week!

It’s been a long time since I have been able to sit down and blog. Honestly, I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve even been able to sit down and BREATHE! It’s been such a busy week, I had a two-day training at work Tuesday and Wednesday and yesterday I had a presentation I had to do which was sooooo stressful for me. So I’ve been at work past 5 everyday and it’s been so tiring. I finally get to work from home today and next week will be much more calm where I can go back to my regular hours.

To be honest, I feel so drained that I don’t even know what to do with my life right now. The only thing I’ve been consistently doing is working out and eating right which is a huge plus and is most likely the reason I was able to get through this week!

I want to talk about how working out has affected my mood! I feel much more energized and my sleep is a lot better. I have been taking melatonin at night this week to make sure I am able to fall asleep because I had to get up so early for work, but working out has also tired me out which is a good thing! Working out has also let me clear my mind of my stresses. It felt so good to exercise  after my training days this week because I was stuck in a room all day from 8-5pm and it was mentally draining. As soon as I got to the gym, it’s like everything was out of my head and I felt more relaxed and clear-minded. The weather is still crap here, but I still have the motivation to walk out to my garage and workout even if it’s super cold during the walk! So I have to say exercising and being consistent with it is one of the best choices I’ve made this month!

Let’s get into the topic of public speaking. I absolutely HATE it!! It makes me so stressed out and I’m literally a mess until it’s over with. I’ve hated it ever since college and it’s never gotten easier for me. In yesterday’s presentation, I didn’t even have to stand up, but I was shaking so bad and probably stuttering. I just hate being the center of attention and I hope I don’t have to do another presentation for a really, really long time. Does anyone have any good tips on getting past this? It seems like whatever I do, I’m still as nervous as always.

I’m getting back into blogging after this busy week, so today I’m sitting down and writing a list of the future topics I’ll be talking about. I would love to hear what everyone’s favorite thing I blog about is! I know I’m all over the place, it’s hard for me to choose just one group of topics. I love talking about everything! Let me know in the comments 🙂

This weekend I am taking a lot of time to RELAX after this long, stressful week! I think I’ll do a bath bomb and a face mask with my husband. That always helps me relax and clear my mind. Tonight, my bff’s and I are having a girls night which is going to be lots of fun! We haven’t had one in a while, well I guess our Galentine’s counts, but we went out for pizza. It’ll be fun and a much needed girl time! Saturday, my husband and I will probably go to this game night at his friends house and Sunday will be stay at home and do nothing day (as usual) because Sundayz are for chilling and doing absolutely NOTHING 🙂

There’s my very long update and I need a vacay :b talk to you soon!

Gloomy days 🌧

Good morning!

Woke up with a huge headache this morning, so I decided to work from home. Got lots of work to do today, but I am trying to balance everything out so I am not super stressed about it. Today is a very gloomy day outside, it looks like it’s going to rain, but I don’t remember it being in the forecast. Yesterday it rained a lot when I was driving home and I had the biggest scare on the highway. There was a huge puddle you couldn’t see going onto the Express Lane ramp and my car just flew into it and I almost lost all control of my car. I thought I was going to end up hitting the median and the side concrete. It was super scary, but if I didn’t know how to control my car it could’ve been way worse.

Onto more exciting things, I officially submitted my PTO for our trip next month and I am SUPER EXCITED!!!! This will 100% be the best trip I’ll have ever gone on so far in my life. So excited to see all of these new cities and so excited to go back and visit Yosemite😍 I told Mirhad that I don’t know how he’s going to drag me home after this trip.. seriously hahahaha. It will be too nice to leave. I can’t wait to start planning it, I’m going to most likely make a blog post all about it! 

I’m in our office right now, I lit a candle and the whole atmosphere changed completely. I drank coffee earlier this morning and I’m waiting for Mirhad to wake up so we can eat breakfast together so I don’t make it and it goes cold for him (happens way too often, this dude never wants to get up) so till then I’ll be starving. I guess by then I can call it lunch, not breakfast lol. I can hear him snoring so loudly from here LOL. 

Today we need to go grocery shopping, I think we are almost out of eggs if not already and we need some other keto foods. We had a “cheat weekend” but we didn’t even cheat lol. So yesterday around lunch time we decided to extend it one more day so last night we ordered some Domino’s pizza and it was yummy! Back to keto today and going to go hard for the rest of this month and possibly into next because I really want to a bit stronger/lighter so it doesn’t slow me down when I hike. Usually when I gain some weight I can barely do a hike and I can’t even enjoy it properly since I get tired so easily. 

Not sure what else we’ll do today, but we’ll see later. Planning on making a post about my weekend!

Btw I usually get my featured images from spark, but sometimes I take them myself. Hoping to get into always posting my own! 

See ya! 🙂
