I don't know why, but for some reason, I'm having a burst of inspiration on a Monday morning, which is pretty rare on any morning, let alone a Monday. Is it the caffeine that's coursing through my veins? Is it the fact that I'm wearing tennis shoes and feel like I could take over the world and run a marathon when I'm wearing tennis shoes? Or maybe just because I made a very comprehensive to-do list and maybe even color coded it? Or the fact that I just sat through an economics class and actually understood a good majority of it? WHO KNOWS?!
Okay, at this point, I just think it's the caffeine. Who can ever be that awake for a Monday 9am?!
Yes, I know I'm writing this on a Monday to post on a Tuesday, and ideally it would have been posted on a Monday, but I just felt like sharing my goals for the week, just to feel a little bit accountable and organized.
I have this whiteboard next to my bed, and though it's been lacking in any information being put on it this semester, it's one of my favorite parts of my room. I try to write down things to do or certain goals in my notebook, but if I don't open it all the time, I tend to forget. But with it right next to my bed, I see it all the time. Also..... my roommate sees it and I feel at least a little bit like I actually have to do it.
So this is my whiteboard post. My goals are silly, but hey, it makes me feel better.
I gave up nonessential breakfast foods for Lent. Weird term, but it started with tater tots (including all related potato breakfast foods) and went to include French toast, pancakes, etc. All the fun stuff. But they normally just make me feel gross, so why keep putting that in my body? Also, my goals for eating better have been less, if any, fried foods, and less sweets. The desserts just make me sleepy and bloated, so again, why eat them? Eating bananas has been my replacement. Also, I'm trying to work out more. I just feel so much better when I exercise and move. I wanted to a little more last week, but I've been kind of sick and didn't want to make any of it worse.
Also, random, but staying clean. I feel better when I shower every day and keep my clothes clean. The most amazing thing happened this weekend-- I washed all of my clothes. WHAT A NOVEL IDEA! But I need to not keep wearing the same pair of jeans and not going to bed gross. I feel better and just end up having a better day if not.
Spring break is in less than two weeks (#praise) and I don't want to go into it just not feeling well. For my physical and emotional health, I want to feel better and good and I guess that having a good dose of caffeine on a Monday morning helps that. ALSO, after a few months of lacking inspiration, my to do list includes many new blog topics that I hope to write and post about soon! Sometimes you just need a break, I guess.
Happy Tuesday, my friends,
