It’s so dark out this morning!!! 🙁
We had Daylight Savings time on Saturday night here in the U.S., as many of you know, so it is now darker later in the morning but light out until later in the evening. I may be in the minority that actually prefers the light in the morning…at least in the spring/summer, I love the early morning light. I don’t really like it when it’s light out so late at night, later in the summer, because it feels so hard to get the kids (and myself) to bed on time.
Yesterday morning (day #1) of Daylight Savings time, Ethan had a 7 am soccer practice. Ugh!! The worst!!! Haha. He was NOT happy about having to get up for it, and I could have done without it too…. He isn’t even a kid who normally sleeps in until late (usually up by ~7:00 even on weekends), but I guess he just doesn’t really like having to be up and out the door so early and then, exercising/ playing soccer while barely awake.
We did get to witness this beautiful sky though:
Looking forward to this week:
-An uneventful week, hopefully!!! I didn’t really get around to doing my normal “weekly review” on Friday, because I had a morning haircut/color appointment. The rest of the day I was playing catch up and worked late. By the end of the day I was exhausted. I mentioned in my previous post how last week kind of burned me out. I’m hoping that this week can just be a little calmer and my work days can be more relaxed/ typical.
-My 1st Covid vaccine tomorrow morning!! Woohoo!! At 8:50 a.m. tomorrow I will be getting my first shot and I’m VERY excited!!!! My employer (hospital) finally worked its way down to the “non-patient contact” employees (me, being a work-from-home Registered Nurse), so I’m finally up! Yay! My parents are now fully vaccinated which I’m also thrilled about.
-EATING BETTER. MOVING MORE. I’ve been feeling kind of “blah” the last week or so, which tends to happen to me anytime I fall off my eating healthy/ workout game. I ended up (unintentionally, just busy) going Wednesday-Saturday without a workout and my eating choices were not fantastic, let’s just say. Feeling the need for a RESET. (again :)) I kicked it off yesterday with a big salad for lunch, an upper body strength workout and a 2 mile run. Up today: Full Body HIIT Week 8 from LIIFT4, the last workout of the program!
Thought of the Day:
Never let your gratitude be dictated by your circumstances.
What a lovely thought. Gratitude. All the time. Every time. Everywhere. 🙂
Have a wonderful Monday!
I am grateful that I’ll be able to get the vaccine tomorrow! No one had been able to tell us when it would be “our turn”, so I’m grateful that it came up sooner than I even expected.
