Ugh. I was all geared up and ready to have a great week and get back into my blogging swing. Then I got my period. Yup, that’s right. I’m blogging about that. TMI? Don’t care.
So, here I am sitting in my yoga pants, hopped up on Motrin, eating chocolate, having an SVU marathon, and dealing with stupid cramps. Needless to say, my desire to be in a good spirits and send out good energy into the world has fallen to the wayside. What can I say? Once a month, being a lady is a pain in the ass. Although, I couldn’t imagine being a guy and having to walk around with that thing between my legs. I just can’t grasp the idea of that at all. I have no idea what I’m rambling about right now. I swear, it’s all the pain medication I’m on for these hellish cramps and migraine. Luckily, I have a massage today.
I’m also going to meet with a TM teacher for the first time tonight. I’m pretty excited about that. And then tomorrow I’m going to see author Gabrielle Bernstein speak in Miami at her book launch for “May Cause Miracles”. I am so completely looking forward to it. I couldn’t be happier about the fact that it’s happening in the first month of the new year.
So, I watch a lot of SVU. I mean, who doesn’t? But, sometimes I find myself wondering if it’s really good to be having all this negative imagery stored in our brains. I mean, I’m pretty surprised that I’m not some sort of sociopath after watching all this Law and Order, CSI, and Criminal Minds. Ya know?
Ok, I have no idea where this blog post is going. I’m just letting my brain spew out randomness.
PS – what are you favorite period cramp remedies? Or what keeps you in good spirits during this lovely time of the month? I hear exercising helps out the cramps, but c’mon! Who wants to get out of bed and work out? Hahaha.
Happy Monday y’all. I don’t know why I love using the phrase “Y’all” so much, but I do. I mean, it’s not like I say it in person or anything. I don’t have the Southern accent for it. Although, I wish I did.
Well, it looks like Monday is here again. I can’t believe the first two weeks of January are already behind us. Slow down 2013, please. The first two weeks of January have been a little scattered. School started back up again, and I’m in classes full time so getting adjusted and putting my schedule in order has been taking up quite a bit of time. But, now I think I’ve got the hang of it and can input a proper amount of time on getting back into blogging. There’s also a few other things going on that have kept me busy as well, but I can’t discuss it just yet.
The other thing that I’m trying to work on is figuring out the best time to work out. After my 20 minutes of meditation, I’m doing 20 minutes of yoga. I’d like to get in the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred in there as well (which I think is about 20-30minutes) but I don’t know if that is overdoing it on the morning routine. The problem is, when I get home from school or work, the last thing I want to do is work out. I really need to start getting to bed earlier so I can properly wake up at 6am. I dunno why I’m so adverse to falling asleep early. I’d probably feel a whole lot better if I did.
Speaking of working out, I downloaded this app that I’m definitely going to have a love hate relationship with. You snap a photo every day of yourself, and at the end it puts it together as a time-lapse video so you can see the progress. While the end result is probably great, the whole getting to that point is torture. I hate taking “before” photos. But, I guess it just provides for more motivation.
Can you believe I haven’t gone shopping yet in 2013? I know some of you are thinking that’s no difficult task. But, I promise, for me, it’s a big deal. I used to go shopping at least once a week just for clothing that I don’t ever need. So, I’m really trying hard to curb that habit. So far, so good.
Did any of you watch the Golden Globes last night? If you follow me on Twitter, you know I was. I know I lost a follower or two during that. But, oh well. Sorry I’m not sorry. Anyway. I don’t usually like award shows, but I was so excited to see Amy Poehler and Tina Fey host. They killed it when they were actually given screen time. Also, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, amazing. They should only let comedians/improvers host and present at these things as opposed to actors who have the most difficult time with the teleprompter.
Ok, I have to go watch Season 2 Premiere of Girls. I’m so in love with that show and Lena Dunham. I totally teared up during her acceptance speech last night.
