Today has been SUCH A BUSY DAY!! My gosh, I really wish I didn’t want to save everything until last minute when I travel!!
Before running out the door this morning, I toasted a thick slice of local mutligrain bread and topped it with some Blizzard Butter. It was delicious as always, but I probably downed it in about 2 minutes since I was in such a rush.
Mid-morning, I snacked on this Braeburn apple which was quite tasty. Luckily, I was able to savor this one a little more.
Around 12:30, hunger started to strike again. I debated on grabbing something while I was out, but I figured I’ll be eating out quite a bit in the next few days, so I made a quick pit-stop home.
I also had about 2/3 of a cucumber that was leftover from yesterday’s scrumptious salad. Since I’ve been out of hommus all week, I decided to give ‘em a little drizzle of Ken’s Lite Balsamic Vinaigrette.
In the midst of all my craziness and running around, I think Cody was starting to wonder what the heck his Mom was doing???
I love how I caught him mid-lick of the nose!
After lunch, it was back out again for a few more things, including a quick stop at Target. I was hoping they’d have some of my fave Clif Z Bars to bring on my trip, but unfortunately I couldn’t find any. Instead, I ended up getting a box of these Triple Berry granola bars from Archer Farms. I decided to give one a try right away.
They’re not too bad; the flavor was good, but they seemed extra chewy for some reason? I almost felt like my jaw was getting a workout from it?
Once I got home, I squeezed in a workout: I did the 40 minute Rock Hard Total Body workout from Exercise On Demand. I was hoping the workout would help cure some of the stress I’ve been having…I’ve been feeling some extreme anxiety all day just knowing how much I have to get ready, about traveling by myself, about meeting new people this weekend…definitely a lot to think about! I’m definitely beyond excited to have this amazing experience ahead of me, and to meet to many awesome people, I guess I’m just letting some of my insecurities get the best of me. Not to mention the fact that I’ve never traveled by myself to a brand new city before…
I just want to make sure I get to do everything I want to do, but not worry so much about it that I’m not enjoying the moment, you know? I’m sure once I’m finally there that I will start to feel a little calmer. But hey, it’s making me a more well-rounded person, right?
Still on the To-Do List:
- Figure out what the heck I’m going to wear this weekend?!?
- Take Banana Struessel muffins out of the oven (to leave for the hubby while I’m gone)
- Update my iPod
- Mail some bills out
- Make dinner
- Make trail mix
- Get together traveling snacks
- Hopefully RELAXING with the hubby
Wish me luck! I’ll be sure to post one more before the night’s over.
Question for the Day:
Do you ever get anxious/nervous about traveling? Any tips for traveling solo to a new city and meeting a bunch of brand new peeps??
