Shaking myself off

kind of like a dog getting out of water. I've been a little down lately, not sure exactly why, but I have. And I'm done with it. Yes, things are not perfect and they never will be. There will always be problems or challenges or whatever. That is life. But things are pretty damn good right now and I need to focus on the positive not the negative. The last few days I've started to get my eczema back and that only happens when I'm super stressed. So this is me officially dumping the slight depression that's been hanging around and taking back my positive, cheery self.

It's going to be a good weekend. I have Crossfit this morning. Then later I'm taking Bella and picking up a friend to go to the Great Aloha Run Expo. We need to pick up our packets and maybe do a little shopping :P Then it's home to do some chores and clean a little. Tomorrow I tutor for an hour and hopefully meet someone to hand off donations for a yard sale. Then Monday is the Great…

End of a rough week. Came home tonight and was completely exhausted so I decided to skip Crossfit. I don't like to do that but sometimes you just have to. I will most definitely go tomorrow morning though....

Got some good news today, my financial aid went through and I've got my first year of my PhD funded. I'm excited about that. I was a little worried, not exactly sure why, but I was. So that is a one hurdle cleared. Now I just have to pass the classes.

That's really all I have to say. Just wanted to document the missed workout for posterity. Good night all...

This week's been rough

Yeah, kind of like that. I've been really struggling with a couple of different things and I'm not sure why - though I do have some ideas.

So first, I bought a new car, as I talked about last time. This has caused some minor uneasiness in my life because I keep thinking that maybe I should have waited. It's kind of silly to worry about that now, it's a done deal, but I can't help but think that.

Second, we got hit with, what could be, a major financial problem. I'm trying not to let it get to me, but it is bothering me a bit.

Third, I seemed to have reached a plateau with Crossfit. I try to work my hardest, but I don't feel like I am. I wrote in my journal last week, that I feel like I've been phoning in the workouts. I feel like I have the ability to work a whole lot harder than I am, but I don't. As a result, I feel like I'm stuck. I want to get better but I can't seem to.....

Finally school. My heart has not been in it this w…
