Hello, soreness

I feel like I’m dying today.

Okay, so that may be a stretch, but …

I am e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d

Speaking of stretching, I should’ve stretched more this morning. My left quad keeps seizing up and I can barely walk. FUN TIMES.

The last couple of weeks have been trying. My sister moved in with me (which is actually going well, by the way) so I went from living by myself with one cat to two people and two (insane) cats. I’ve been having drama at work. I’ve been working my part-time job. I’ve been working multiple events for my full-time job outside of the normal 40-hour week. I’ve been kind of looking for another job (SHHH). I’ve been working out regularly six times a week. I’ve been struggling with emotional eating. I haven’t had a day to just chill and sleep in in I don’t know how long.

So you could say that I’m tired and a tad bit overwhelmed as of late. 

Today my alarm went off at 5:15 a.m. after an 18-hour day yesterday and I did NOT want to get out of bed. I pushed off my alarm until 5:30 a.m., but I finally went to the gym. I have to say my workout wasn’t *the best*, but I did work up to 125# rack pulls. Oh, and I got a fun new shirt (this is actually from yesterday, but I had to find a way to put it in).


I am taking vitamins like nobody’s business and hoping the fact that I eat pretty healthy and workout constantly will keep me not sick. 🙂 Last week Tuesday (3/29) was the start of working 23-days straight until I get a day off. Twenty-three. That’s a lot. And some of those days are working two jobs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining by any means – I’m just exhausted. My muscles are sore. My brain is tired. But there’s a wonderful light at the end of the tunnel …


This beautiful, wonderful bestest friend (maybe minus the birds) in Hawaii. We’re almost there …………

*14 days*

Are you looking forward to anything?
How do you keep yourself sane when things are crazy?

    I can imagine how tired + sore you are lady! You take rest days from your workouts I hope? I think counting down to vac. is a really good thing! We are going to Naples FL in just over 2 weeks…..and I can’t wait:) I’ve never been and really want sun-heat-beach time and being a tourist—Yeah! So, hang in there……

      I do take rest days – usually only one a week, though. I actually ended up taking one today because I’m just too whooped! I’m already feeling tons better just by sleeping in until 6:30 a.m. haha! Yay, Florida! I hope you have so much fun!!

      It’s the Remington “CI95AC2 T|Studio Salon Collection Pearl Digital Ceramic Curling Wand, 1/2-1 Inch, Pink” on Amazon, I think. I bought it almost two years ago. 🙂

    Fresh air is my lifesaver. I’m sure its just as cold in WI as it is in MN, but I’ve taken a habit of finishing my fitbit steps for the day outside. It might be 10 pm, but I’m getting those steps and sometimes having my only time of the day where my mind can roam. Its an important part of my sanity.

      I totally agree! When I lived in Milwaukee, I used to take walks ALL THE TIME and I loved it. Good for you for getting out, even when it’s late!
