Good day everyone!
Long time no talk, I know.
March was not the best month for me on a number of levels. I feel like it never really happened because I never slowed down enough to get the chance to enjoy it. My frazzled life pace has affected me on several levels. I have dark circles under my eyes like I have never seen before and my skin is equally dry, flaky and pimply. I have hives from my hotel stay in Ottawa and they itch like a mofo. I have put on a few pounds and any last bit of muscle tone that I had a few weeks ago is gone, as is my general motivation to actually work out or eat healthfully. My body is aches–though I’m not sure if that is from stress, muscle atrophy, being cramped up on too many airplanes or forcing myself into heels for 16 hour days.
So yeah….I am in rough shape as this month comes to a close…but I am looking forward to a fresh start with this crazy month ending. Since returning from Ottawa I have been able to take some much-needed Leesah time. I slept ten hours last night and around 8 the night before. I am slowly converting back to healthy eating as I catch up on my sleep. I even made it back to the gym today and started my laundry.
As I reflect on the craziness of the last month, I also know there were some wonderful times in the midst of the crazy. Like getting to celebrate my friend T’s upcoming nuptials on several occasions and in two different cities. I loved giving my friend B her belated birthday presents from Walt Disney World and motivating about a dozen people to come out and give blood with my Pint for a Pint Challenge. I felt immense joy upon learning that my dad has a gall bladder problem and nothing worse after his stay in the Emergency Room at the beginning of this month. I enjoyed spending time with my friends R&K in Ottawa–much more time than I normally spend with them. I loved having Good Friday Driveway Beers with some pizza and a fire pit and good people last night. I enjoyed the experience of flirting with someone in a coffee shoppe and enjoyed the feeling of noticing that someone was flirting with me in said coffee shoppe. Learning that my hotels had the AMC channel so that I could watch each episode of Walking Dead and not fall behind.
Needless to say that, despite the frantic, frazzling pace of the month of March, it still turned out pretty darn well. I look forward to spending the last day of March doing whatever I please–which, I will be honest, will likely include the following: sleeping, laundry, watching The Walking Dead, a gym visit and imbibing a green smoothie. I can’t wait to get it started already!
