Today is such a typical Case-of-the-Monday's- Monday.
I'm not even that moody or down, I just feel like I should be.
It's rainy and gray outside, I ate way too much chocolate yesterday and I'm hormonal.
Recipe for some blues, right there!
So it's the first day back to work after a long weekend.
This was the first weekend without my boyfriend, and despite everything, it went pretty well!
I jumped right back into my "self-care" routines to keep myself uplifted and healthy/happy.
Lots of long bubble baths, Netflix marathons, chores (I love cleaning, best therapy ever).
|I am not the only one who engaged in a little "rest and relaxation" this weekend|
Friday, I went to the gym for an embarrassing 20 minutes, and then saw the new Tina Fey movie with my pal Ash. Saturday, I went for a tattoo session and Sunday was my family's Easter brunch/lunch.
The entire weekend was spent booze-free..yeah!
This helps tremendously in managing moods.
Alcohol makes me feel so unstable sometimes, I feel so much more centered when I am free of it!
Saturday's tattoo session was pretty ouchie, but I survived.
I have one final session to colour in the flowers, the lion's eyes and the frame- I'm really excited about this piece!
It really serves as a reminder of how far I have come in my journey.
I'm proud of what I've accomplished in the last 10 years; professionally, and more importantly, personally. I feel pretty darn grounded these days; sure I still have minor setbacks, but I really don't think there's anything that I couldn't handle.
I'm a warrior lion!
|The flowers are going to be so pretty once coloured in :)|
Yesterday, unfortunately, a TMJ migraine struck me down mid-Easter-celebration. I took some Tylenol and Advil throughout the day, but I had this nonstop surge in the right side of my head, near my temple.
I never, ever suffered from headaches until this TMJ nonsense started.
Thankfully, after icing it all night and early bed, I woke up pain-free.
|Taking a little nap in Momma's best, mid-Easter celebration. My nose looks SO crooked here! Yeah for non-symmetrical faces!|
Tonight I am very likely going to do a workout video at home because Monday is my most lazy-bones day, and quite frankly, the gym was made for Tuesday-Sunday.
