6.25.14 I really like how the hair turned out! :D
Today I woke up at 6:00 (I feel like I’m waking up later and later each day because I don’t really have anything to do. I can’t wait till school starts) drank tea, did blogilates, and drew.
then I went for a walk with my mother in the nice sunshine~Then I went cycling, ate lunch, read APES, I was planning to draw, but I just didn’t feel like it.
Today is just one of those days that I just get sick of stuff easily. Normally drawing makes me excited but not today, I just didn’t feel like it and it makes me feel bad and unproductive. Maybe my brain is just tired of drawing :( I’ll try again tomorrow.
Then I went to practice. Today I just felt really tired running (and blogilates) and I just kept waiting for it to be over. I don’t like to feel this way since running is normally extremely enjoyable for me and I don’t like to dread things I have/like to do. The suffocating heat made it worse. I ran 4.7 miles with my fastest mile being 8:09 and slowest 8:40. I just felt bad :( since 5 miles is my standard and I didn’t reach it, I went cycling when I got home to kinda make up for it. I do realize that I’m a bit OCD when it comes to things like this.
Cycling just seems more enjoyable for me today because it requires less effort than blogilates/running. I feel like I need a little break because everything just seems to be making me more tired lately even though I’ve been consistently sleeping around 8 hours each night, and I haven’t really done anything differently than my usual routine. I feel like I’m inching closer to a physical/mental burnout so now that I realize that, I’m going to force myself to take it easier for the next couple of days, before the XC season starts because that would be too late.
Maybe I feel this way because I haven’t really changed anything up this whole summer and my body is exhausted of this routine. This is why I need school!!
When I got home, I showered, drew, washed the dishes, then went grocery shopping with my mother at ranch 99. I got several different types of squashes. I’ve been very find of squashes lately and I eat at least one type every day for dinner. :D
Then I put the groceries away, washed some cherries, cut strawberries and bananas to freeze, and chopped celery to store for a snack. Then I microwaved some sweet potato and butternut squash. Then I ate dinner and read APES. After that, I mopped the floor and drew~
7.28.14 my squash collection! ^__^ there’s kabocha, banana, butternut, spaghetti, and acorn squash! I also have zucchini and yellow squash in the fridge. What is your favorite type of squash?
Infographic by me. Fruit is NOT bad for you.
Today I woke up at 6:00, drank tea, did blogilates, drew, went for a walk, then went grocery shopping at my local Indian grocery store~
I got kabocha and butternut squash (they didn’t have banana squash again which I wanted to try :( ) carrots, and beets.
Then I went cycling on my stationary bike, ate lunch, read APES, did my laundry, my mother’s laundry, washed the dishes, and drew.
Then I went to go volunteer at the YMCA~ they had a new washer and dryer. cleaning the dryer lint is so much fun! I get to stick a broom underneath and scrape out a ball of fluffy lint like snow every time!!
