Lazy Weekend

that's what this weekend was. Lazy. I did some things but nothing earth shattering. I cleaned house a little. Got some breakfast made for the week. Went to Crossfit twice. Took a nap every day. Went to lunch with Hubby. Did laundry. And all that took me three days. It has been nice to not have papers or assignments hanging over my head. To just take it easy and relax for a couple of days. But I think the relaxing is over. I have to get to school early tomorrow and jump right in to get a lab set up. So it will be early to bed tonight and then up and at em in the morning.

I went the whole week last week without eating any sweets. I avoided cake, ice cream, etc, with no problem at all. Then Friday night the wheels came of the bus and they have not gotten back on yet. Sunday I bought lemon Oreos at the store and over the course of two days, I ate almost the entire package. Now I know this is not good. After I ate some yesterday, I crashed - hard - on the couch for over an hour. I know that was a sugar crash. Especially since I hadn't really eaten any sweets in a week. It hit me hard. On the program I was following, I could eat wheat last week. But I don't like the way that makes me feel. So this week it will be no sugar, no wheat. That's all. Nothing earth shattering. Just avoiding the things that don't make me feel good. I only have to do that for 5 days. Next weekend I can have sweets again, though I'm going to try to avoid eating an entire bag of Oreos.

I'm between classes right now and I would very much like to get some work done on my prospectus. I would love to have it ready to submit by March 10th. So for the next two weeks I'm going to devote 30 minutes every night to it. That should get me really far with it. I have heard from numerous sources that you should write every day, even if it's only for 10 minutes, just write every day. But I honestly don't work that way. I work better if I write, then walk away, then write, then walk away. But then I read something today that made more sense to me. If you don't write every day you lose track of what you are doing. Then every time you sit down to write, you have to figure out where you are and that takes time. With that thought in mind, I see that writing every day, even if for only 10 minutes, makes sense. I submitted my prospectus last week and I seriously have no idea what is in it. So I'm going to try to commit 30 minutes a night to it. That is a huge thing and if I could get that submitted and approved, that would be huge.

Okay, I'm tired and it's time to get ready for bed.
