I am so so so tired right now- but my body is so out of whack that I cannot sleep. Where do I begin? I have been HORRIBLE to my body the last few days. Seriously HORRIBLE. I know I shouldn't have been, but it happens. I've just been playing with my friends so hard that I haven't properly taken care of myself. Friday night I went to an Angel's game with some of my friends, and then Saturday night we went dancing. Well, Friday night we decided to take a girls trip to Vegas which meant that a serious rampage would have to ensue immediately following this decision, so at the Angel's game we pigged out- that being the "last night" before the rampage began. Ha. Saturday I worked out pretty hard (because of my new rampage) so I drank a Rockstar Sat night at 11pm because we were going dancing and i needed "energy". MISTAKE. Couldn't go to sleep until 5:30 am. That crap is so bad for your body. Seriously- don't ever drink it- it's liquid meth I think. Well, today I had a straight hangover (no alcohol was involved last night), I was NOT hungry, but in true hangover fashion, proceeded to eat large quantities of food in attempts to give my body something normal. Tonight I proceeded to go to a dessert party where several of my other friends and I started doing this "sampling" of all of the desserts, and 2 hours later i am so full of sugar that it's 12:02 am and my neck is killing me and I cannot go to sleep. I feel so jacked up.
The good news is, I've been laying here in bed plotting my plan for the new rampage as it continues tomorrow. I realized as I'm planning, that basically my workouts for the month of July were pretty horrible. I ran a lot a lot, but I didn't do anything else and I ate horribly, so I really didn't accomplish much. This month I am going to step it up and add weights back in, and possibly more yoga too. I'm also seriously considering sugar restriction. I know it's tough, but seriously my body needs a detox or something right now. I've had several friends tell me some of the benefits they are getting from yoga and I know when I was doing hot yoga more consistently before, my body was in better shape to run. So I'm hoping to make yoga a part of my routine at least 3 days a week this month. I feel like my goals are pretty lofty right now though. But then again, I have a lot of work to do before this Vegas trip I'm going on. AND I just want to feel normal again. I remember when I didn't feel 85 years old, and I wasn't hobbling around in pain all the time.
In other news, again, I was laying in my bed trying to make myself go to sleep, and I was also thinking back over my weekend and my friends, and I just want to mention that I am so incredibly happy right now. I have the best friends in the whole world. 3 of my closest and dearest girlfriends and I spent the whole weekend together and I just prayed tonight a little prayer of gratitude for such amazing girlfriends in my life that love me, support me, and keep me laughing and smiling at all times. Here is a cute picture of 3 of my best girlfriends and I at the Angel's game on Friday night. I have a few other close girlfriends that I love too, but these three are special to me because they are the ones I'm with the most- as they are all single and live right here in CA with me. We had so much fun this whole weekend and I seriously cannot stop raving about how much I love these girls:
They just understand me. I love my social life right now- I am out meeting people almost every night and laughing hysterically with these girls at all times and I just love love love my friends and am so thankful for them and the joy they bring in my life. We seriously do not stop laughing, and I love it so much. Here are just a few more fun ones from this same night (I can't help it!):
My life right now is amazing. I'm so grateful. And I think things are only going to get better from here!!!!
xoxoxoxo my loves!!
