Currently…

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted what some of my currents are. So I thought why not?

Reading: Gone Girl, yes I’m a bit late. I wanted to read the book before I watched the movie but it worked out the other way around. I enjoyed the movie and am also enjoying the book.

Watching: The Killing on Netflix. This was originally aired on AMC, yet somehow I missed it. It was canceled but thankfully Netflix picked it up. It’s about two detectives trying to solve a homicide with loads of twists and turns along the way.

Gym: Been working on my cardio. I hate cardio, I rather lift but it has to get done. I think part of the reason why I hate it is because I suck at it. I’ve had issues with my knees that interfere with running and other activities. I’m working on building up my stamina & endurance.

Family: Squish is 10 months old and I’m still adjusting. He’s currently teething again and there have been many sleepless nights in our home.
The oldest joined the robotics team after I “encouraged” him to and loves it!! I’m volunteering on the team and am excited to see what they come up with. The current project has to do with recycling.

Music: Currently I’m loving “Riptide” by Vance Joy. It just puts me in a good mood.

Purchased: Well it’s not technically a purchase, it’s a replacement. My headphones broke but luckily I had protection plan on them and today I received my brand new pair of headphones.

Projects: Focusing on this blog and getting back to posting. Also been toying around with the idea of making some vlogs. I did a few years back and am always asked why I stopped. It’s a time issue and time continues to be an issue but I may aim for biweekly maybe. Any suggestions, topics are welcomed.

There’s my currents, what are some of yours? I love hearing what other people are into.

Till next time my lovelies.

Down in the Slumps…. And all the Negative Feelings That Are There

So this past week has just been a bummer. I didn’t workout at all! Not one day did I make it to the gym or attempt a home routine, and I feel so guilty. I was stressed and running around all week. I had a very important interview on Friday which I’m pretty sure I bombed. That in turns has added to me feeling worst about myself. Let’s just say this week was the week all my doubts and negative thoughts decided to come out. Now I know we’re human and entitled to these days here and there, but I’ve literally been feeling like this all week. This weekend was worst since I then had the bad thoughts from my interview added to it. I’m trying to shake it off these negative feelings, but it seems like every time I’m not occupied my mind just goes to, “Yeah Des you really screwed that one up, kiss that job good bye.”

So how does one shake this feeling? Well for me is to keep occupied and eventually it goes away. I also just redirect my thoughts as soon as the negativity starts to creep in. I pick up a book, turn to my spirituality, or just go over my schedule for the next day in my mind. I know I’ll be better and this week will just be another dot in the past. I just hope I can shake it off sooner rather than later. For now I’ll just continue reading my books, planning my gym routines for this week (I have to make up for last week), and give myself pep talks.

 

How do you deal with the negative committee? Do you have an instant pick me up? Remember you’re never alone, and while sometimes it gets overwhelming it gets better.
