Last week and this weekend were pretty hard. However, its Sunday evening and I’m choosing to start over. I am going to try my hardest this week to get back into my routine and achieve the goals I have set for myself. I need to try to stop feeling sorry for myself and if I do that, I can achieve so much more.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I buy myself flowers every week. It’s something I do to try to cheer myself up a bit. The pretty colors and smells on cold, winter days puts a smile on my face. These are the tulips I bought this week.


Today, I believe was the start of a manic up cycle. I woke up, ate breakfast, showered, went to the grocery store, came home and did several loads of laundry, worked out on the elliptical for an hour, showered again, meal prepped lunch for the week, cleaned the kitchen and my bedroom, got the “menu” planned for dinner for the week and now I’m blogging. For me, this is a lot in one day. I am not complaining because I rather do all this then sit around feeling miserable. When I’m on an up cycle, I don’t sleep well. I did not nap today which is the complete opposite of last week. Tonight will be the tell if im on an up cycle.

Stay tuned 🙂
