This week has kind of been…blah. I don’t want to be a “Debbie Downer”, but I have only left the house to go to school or work, and the rest of my time has been spent in my room, doing homework. I’ve been justifying egg and cheese sandwiches and cereal as healthy balanced dinners, and eating while simultaneously typing papers and rushing to meet deadlines. One night I was so engrossed in my homework that by the time I looked at the clock it was 9:30pm and I had yet to eat dinner. Everyone keeps reminding me that I “only have 2 1/2 months” left. But when you’re caught up in the moment, it’s sometimes hard to see the larger picture, you know?
Even though I still have a pile of homework waiting to be finished, I have to let myself take a break. I stress myself out too much, and I know that everything will get done, somehow. So, in honor of this “letting myself relax thing” (that everyone tells me I really should try), today I will:
1. Eat a Panera Cinnamon Crunch bagel.
My mom bought five of them yesterday, for our family to eat this morning. Who can pass up a special treat delivered by Mom ;)? Carbs make everything better. Okay, not everything, but you know what I mean.
2. Go to Zumba
3. Eat Panera again
My mom may have stopped in there yesterday, but I did not. I have been craving broccoli cheddar soup since last weekend, and after seeing how stressed out I’ve been, Jordan suggested we go to Panera for lunch today. Is it weird that I look forward to eating soup? Because I do.
4. Do homework
5. Eat pizza with my family
Every Saturday night my family orders in pizza. We rarely have the chance to eat together any other day of the week because of our busy schedules, so it’s kind of a little tradition of ours.
Yeah, so maybe I plan to eat restaurant food three times today, but that’s part of “relaxing,” isn’t it? And I consider Panera healthy, so it doesn’t completely count :).
I have really got to get going if I’m going to make it to Zumba. Happy Saturday (relax a little)!
