2014, My Brain is Fried

Happy 2014! I had decided to schedule myself from 7a-7p on the 31st and from 11a-11p on the 1st so that I would still be able to go out and enjoy the night! However, after working 12 hours (and waking up at 5am), I had no desire to go out at all! Jon wanted to but thankfully, he decided he didn’t want to drag me out of the house being as tired as I was. So we watched a House Hunters marathon on TV and I drifted off to sleep on the couch by 11:30. I’m such an old lady.

I’ve been in a bit of a funk this week. I’ll attribute it to the complete lack of sunshine every. single. day. of. the. week. I’m really over this Georgia weather. The entire year has been cloudy! It’s making me miss the severe drought days when it was sunny every single day for months on end (that was years ago). We just had no water in the lakes. Tonight I walked out of work and it was like an arctic blast.

I would really like to say that I set some goals for myself this year but I haven’t. I definitely want to run a 1/2 marathon, but that’s not  a new goal. I want to get my muscle back, but have no set goal as of how to achieve this goal. I am itching to get back to CrossFit more regularly after the class I did on Monday night so I’m pretty excited that I’ll be off at 3 two days next week so that I can go. I want to start eating more along the lines of Paleo again (I like the 90/10 rule), which I had been doing for a long time and then in the last month or two have just been eating way worse than usual!

Aside from gym/food goals cause life is definitely about more than that, I’ll keep working on not having expectations. I expect for things to get done my way (this is obviously mostly in regards to Jon) and get aggravated when they don’t. So if I don’t have the expectation, I won’t get aggravated! It worked last night! 1/1.

I know there are more things I need to work on, not just because of the new year, but because I’ve been working on them. But I’ve worked too much this week and don’t want to give anything that much thought. I think I’ll just get caught up on touching up some paint!

  1. The weather is crazy here too. We haven’t had a sunny, pretty day in awhile. It’s supposed to get colder here which i don’t mind but I’m sick of the rainy, clouds, and gloom.

    I hope you can get back to CrossFit soon too and also run a half marathon this year. Like you, I am trying to get over having expectations… for me when I go into something with them and all hyped up, I’m almost always disappointed. Sometimes it’s just better to accept things as they come and for what they are and embrace it.

    • I don’t mind the cold either but HATE the dreariness! It’s finally sunny today and this weekend but it’s supposed to be sunny in Florida and we’ll be down there all weekend!

  2. I rather spend New Years cuddled up on the couch with my boyfriend than out partying. Though it is nice seeing old friends. After a 12 hour work schedule, I would have been asleep much earlier than that! I admire you for being able to work that much at a hospital!

    What’s the 90/10 rule? You’ll figure out your goals as the year goes about, whether they’re small or big.

    • Eat Paleo 90% of the time and whatever I want 10% of the time!

      • Ah ok, that’s what I figured. That’s a good concept to do! Some people forget about that and eat strict 100% of the time and then find themselves in bed with a box of pizza gone. That actually did happen to someone that I know.
