Ok, now that I've vented and realized that I'm sounding like a complainer, I guess it's not so bad.
Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency.
Natalie GoldbergTomorrow I'm going to make an effort to take a deep breath whenever I feel a bit frazzled. Sometimes it's hard to think outside your little bubble of stresses, but not everything is a big deal, and you just gotta roll with it. *Easier said than done*
When I got home I did The Shred: Level 2. I'm on Day 7! Today I listened to my shuffle and muted Jillian. Girl annoys me sometimes! The only problem with that, was I had to keep looking up to see if the moves were finally done! So many planks in Level 2!
To get me out of my manic "Monday" funk, I made myself pancakes for dinner!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 + some cups rice milk
topped with sunflower butter + blueberry jelly
I wanted something quick, simple, and sweet but not enough sugar to keep me awake. This made 4 pancakes. The first 2 were plain, the second two I added frozen blueberries to the batter.
Sweet. I have pancakes for breakfast now!
Do you like sunflower butter? By itself, not really. With jelly it's pretty good, although I don't think I'll be buying it again.
