1. One of the best lessons my mother-in-law has taught me thus far is how to correctly dip an oreo (or in my case the store off-brand cookie because I am cheap) into milk.
Okay, maybe not the best thing she has taught me but try it. Stick the fork through the creme and dip. No messy fingers or losing the cookie in the milk. Enjoy and let’s just keep this between us, you can share with your family but let’s stop there because I might look into patenting it.
2. I accidentally spent the first 15 minutes of one of my classes discussing who was going to win the Bachelor. I may have gotten into a minor debate with a student but I apologized and then taught them about Sports Nutrition. I am looking forward to tonights episode (by looking forward I mean counting down the minutes and already mentally preparing myself for all of the drama that is about to occur.)
I am going to watch The Bachelor tonight with these lovely ladies. They are the best at discussing the deep meanings, theories and philosophies of this show and I can’t wait to analyze every detail with them!
3. On a completely random note I wanna chat about something I have been thinking about a lot.
(PS I do realize I am wearing the same shirt as yesterday. The challenge will lie in if I wear it tomorrow too.)
Perception is kind of a big deal, especially when it comes to what stresses us out.
I cause my own stress. I take something that wouldn’t stress normal people out and turn it into a big deal. To the point it makes my stomach hurt.
Is it normal to be nervous about a speed workout for 48 hours because what if my mile repeats are 6:25’s instead of 6:20’s? Probably not.
It is so silly because a health lesson, a tempo run or an email will keep me up late at night thinking about every last detail.
But this is going to change. No more worrying about things excessively.
I really need to remember that it is just running, or it is just a blog, or it is just a spin class. In the long run all I can do is my best and excessively worrying about things and trying to make them perfect is not going to help me. It just makes me stressed and feel like my lungs are going to explode.
-No one, no workout, no nothing in life can always be perfect.
-It is okay if I don’t teach a perfect spin class, with the perfect songs and if I stutter a million times throughout class.
-It is okay if I don’t always have the ‘perfect’ lesson for my students, if my workout doesn’t go exactly as it is supposed to or that my dishes are piled so high that they are touching the ceiling.
-It is okay (and necessary) to take some time every day to just sit there and just be by yourself with no technology, no to-do list making and chillax.
Are you a worrier? Do the things that stress you out, stress other people out?
-Yep, I think I got it from my mom;) Some of the things that stress me out would probably make people laugh out loud if they knew.
Do you take out time everyday to just relax and let yourself unwind without thinking about anything?!?!
-Nope, but starting today I am scheduling 20 minutes into my day for MENTAL HEALTH!! I am writing it in my day planner even:)
Which one is your favorite……..Regular oreo’s, double stuffed oreos, the one’s with mint in the middle or golden oreo’s? Do you dip your cookies in milk?
-Double stuffed oreo’s are the best creation ever. Milk is a necessity with cookies.
