I have to pat myself on the back for a minute. I was responsible tonight. I have a few papers to write for my classes, and I tend to put off things like that until the day they are due (a horrible habit of mine). Today I worked on a paper, sent it to myself, and thought "I can finish this on Saturday morning." (It's due Saturday at 7pm.) Tonight after my two gym classes and some dinner, I was all ready to check my Spark stuff, my Facebook page and sit on the couch, but something made me finish my paper and send it to my professor.
Now this may not sound big, but for me this is HUGE. For me to send a paper on a Tuesday when it's not due until Saturday? Holy moly!
Tonight was Transcend Dance. A mix of yoga, meditation, and different dance styles. Very interesting and very fun. I am looking forward to taking it again. Then was Pilates Fusion - WHOA hard class. My core is feeling it.
Tomorrow morning is an early morning session with my trainer. Tonight at Pilates she said to me "I was thinking that tomorrow we'd go through *my* workout as your session." She knows I want arms like hers, so I have a feeling I'm going to be super sore tomorrow. But I'm looking forward to it anyway.
Clothes are picked out for tomorrow; I didn't get around to packing my lunch, but I think i can throw something together tomorrow morning before I leave for the gym.
Off to pick up my honey from work... it's a late night for me.

but I don't know where it went.
Between my comprehensive exams, my Saturday run, driving to the symphony, dance class, napping, and school work, the weekend went by waayyyy too fast. I don't even feel like I had a weekend. Ugh.
This morning I have a little bit of a sore throat... I think you guys were right - I may be coming down with something. My knees were extra achy yesterday, and my honey said that my body language was weird, like something wasn't right.
Alarm went off at 5:00 this morning, and I got up, reset it for 6:00, and went back to sleep. I think I'm going to change my sleep schedule again. 5:30 or 6:00 seems like a more reasonable time for me to get up. The evenings are light, and I feel like my evening energy has returned. We'll see... it's an on-going experiment.
Running club tonight...
Today I will:
Drink at least 4 Siggs of water (I've been seriously slacking on the water)
Pack my lunch for tomorrow
Finish the laundry folding and ironing from yesterday
Start working on my assignment that's due on Friday (if I could submit it earlier than Friday I'd be a happy camper.)
Have a super day!

Yesterday was just the most hellish day you could imagine. I was in such a foul mood when I woke up, and I don't know why. Well, maybe I do know why. I'm stressed out over my comprehensive exam I'm taking tomorrow, over the seemingly millions of papers I have to write for the class I'm taking, and over my crazy busy schedule.
When I went into the office to sign in, the secretary gave me some chocolate. I promptly ate it all. Then I got back to my room, decided I was still grumpy, and went across the hall for a bag of Peanut M&Ms. All this chocolate actually improved my mood greatly.
But it didn't last for long. My first class was late getting picked up, and I ended up with two 2nd grade classes in my room for 10 minutes waiting for the teacher. The wonderful art teacher next door finally volunteered to take the class (she didn't have anyone) so I could get at least part of my music lesson in. Grumpiness returned in full force. Continued to be grumpy when I didn't get any apology for the class sitting in my room, no explanation about what happened, nothing. No "thanks for covering my class for that time," no "thanks for being flexible." If there is one thing I hate, it's being taken advantage of.
Last night I had a homeowners association meeting. Just another way to make my day miserable. Our house really needs new siding, and it's been on the meeting agendas for over a year. Nothing has been done except a lot of talking. So I went to the meeting last night prepared to talk about my siding frustration. Well after some other business, we finally got to the siding. I brought up how disappointed I was that we talked about getting new siding for a long time but nothing has been done. I haven't had anyone repair what we have because I don't want to shell out the money for the repairs and then pay someone to rip off the repairs and put new stuff on shortly thereafter. If I would have known it would have taken this long, I might have reconsidered. But anyway, one of the guys was acting like my concerns were nothing big. Thankfully, someone stepped in and backed me up. I could feel my face getting red and warm and I was feeling like I was going to explode.
I need a vacation.
So TGIF. I mean, REALLY TGIF.
Tonight I have a chiro appointment after school (to which i really don't feel like going), and I have to prepare my computer for tomorrow's exam. Today is an easy day at school (knock on wood) and I plan on hiding out in my room to get a lot of work done. I'd like to get a lot of studying done today so I can make it out to run tomorrow morning. Because as important as it is to study for this exam, it's also important for me to get a little outdoor fitness time in. I think the run might actually help me for the exam - get the blood flowing, wake up a little bit.
Sorry for the Negative Nellie post, but I just needed to vent. Today is another day.
I'm off to pack my lunch and drink some water.
