So sometimes it feel like I run from one thing to another throughout my afternoon/evening. I try to get done as many things as I can at one time, thanks to some major multitasking. Sometimes I look forward to work just because it’s the first time in my day that I can actually catch my breath. I know that we all have those days where we just feel like we have too much to do. Today was one of those days.
My day started off pretty normal. I was all ready to do my 30 day shred dvd. I hadn’t done it in a few days, and I had planned on doing it today, no excuses. As I was waiting for the dvd to come on, I realized something my dvd remote wasn’t working. I changed the batteries, I banged it “lightly” on my hand, I pushed all the buttons repetitively… still nothing. I couldn’t do my workout without the dvd because I didn’t have the arrows to go down to the workout section. I thought about putting the dvd in my laptop, but realized I wasted too much time on the stinking remote, and I would have to get ready to go get Justine from school. Waahhhh… (that’s me crying when things don’t go my way) 🙂 I did have the last of my french toast, which made my mood a little better.
Once we got back home I had a checklist of things we needed to get done… homework, dinner, showers, getting stuff ready for work, home owner’s association meeting. It was one thing after another. I did manage to jump on the treadmill and get in a little workout in, since I missed my dvd. And amongst the madness I made a quick, but delish lunch.
I had yellow peppers and tomatoes (from my grandma’s plants), onnion, shrimp, cheese, and Naan bread.
I brushed the Naan with a little olive oil and garlic and heated that up for about 2 minutes. I then added all the pizza toppings.
While that was in the oven cooking for about 7 minutes I made a little side salad with Pom seeds and raspberry vinagerette dressing.
And then lunch was served!
My evening was busy, but I got everything I needed to get done which is a good thing. I’m a planner. I plan everything. I have a list of things I need to get done for the day and if I don’t get them done… well, it’ll leave me stressed the rest of the day. I know, I’m such a worrier. I just shake my head at myself sometimes.
Dinner was easy since I didn’t have too much time to get anything together. I grabbed a can of soup out of the pantry.
Wolfgang Puck’s Organic Tortilla soup. I mainly got this soup at Target because it was on sale, and I had a coupon. That happens a lot. I like having some soup in the cabinet incase I need to grab something quick for lunch or dinner. This soup wasn’t bad. It wasn’t spicy, which was a fail, but there were a lot of veggies and beans in there which was a pass. I had a corn bread Vitaop with it. Not too bad of a dinner. Dessert is my last yogurt parfait.
Sometimes I just need to remember that I’m not superwoman. I can’t do everything, and at times I just need to stop for a minute and catch my breath.
What do you do to calm yourself down when you feel like you don’t have a minute to spare?
