It’s been pretty quiet on the food front and mostly smoothies, soups, and stir fries as usual! Still up to my big batch cooking on Sunday’s. Makes the rest of the week MUCH easier.
Runs and hot yoga have been my go-to 5-6 days per week. Trying to keep to one rest day. Be warned – these are not “cute Crissie” pictures, but “ass kicking Crissie” ones 🙂
Life has been wonderfully full of AC since my last post! But honestly, not a whole ton going on. Work, workout, spend time with my kids, spend time with my friends. Rinse and repeat.
Saturday I did have overnight guests though! One of my closest friends moved out of state a few years ago, but her husband and kids (including my Godson) were back in the area. They spent the night here on their way back out of state. JC and I had a really nice time catching up, and the kids got to run around, play, and then pass out.
One of the most fun activities was taking my young one to a start-up pitch competition! I knew she’d love it, and she did. My budding entrepreneur 🙂 I’ve been getting more and more involved in our local start up community and have been loving every minute of it.
The biggest thing is the my focused effort on my insomnia. I haven’t really talked about it, but it’s been a big problem for 13 years now, and I haven’t handled it well or in the most healthy ways. Journaling, meditation before bed, no electronics, no alcohol, lots of exercise. It can take months, but as long as I keep a positive outlook, it’ll be okay. Every time I tried to deal with this in the past, the anxiety of “knowing I can’t sleep” overwhelmed me and I gave up. But not this time. It’s not been fun, but it’s also not killing me, and working with cognitive behavior techniques, I’ve avoided the anxiety I’ve had about sleep so far. So – apologies to those who know me if I’m a bit cranky for a few weeks. It’s not you. I’m just tired:)
Fluffballs have been fun and busy too!
