Get ready. Today's post is going to be another serious one. Don't worry, I'll be back to the fun stuff soon!
Between the physical exhaustion of the Las Vegas trip and the mental exhaustion this week has brought, I'm pretty much spent.
A friend of ours (one of Pete's teammates) had a bike accident Tuesday night so we spent some time at the hospital and it just threw the week off. Luckily, he is doing great and healing up, but it just wears on you.
At the same time, the situation reminded me how lucky I am to have what I have. Life is precious and you never know when something could happen.
Last night I had a late work meeting and didn't get out for a run until 7:30 pm. It had been a warm, muggy day so the 75 deg heat combined with my mental & physical exhaustion nearly did me in.
I ran for 30 minutes at an easy pace and felt like I could have collapsed at any moment. The legs were even shaking a bit as I stretched afterward. Note to self: listen to your body.
As a result, I bring you my theme song this week - Violin by Amos Lee
And finally, the look of the week (via Vegas): Sushi me!
We all dressed up for sushi dinner before getting dressed AGAIN for a night on the town. This was probably my favorite look of the weekend because it was fun and comfy, I'm obsessed with aqua and it has glitter and see through lace - perfect for Las Vegas.
Top & necklace: Charlotte Russe, shorts: JCrew outlet, shoes: Old Navy
With all that's been happening, I feel like I'm sort of at a breaking point - a few panic attacks have reminded me that I need to slow down and not expect so much of myself every day of the week. Last night I took an epsom salt bath and tried to read a magazine. Now if only I could get my mind to stop running...
I hope your weekend is off to a more cheerful start than mine. On the bright side, we're starting to see some real sun around these parts and it definitely brightens my mood and energy levels. Okay, gotta get my Friday morning lifting on!
