What I really really want…is to get that Spice Girl song stuck in your head for the rest of the day! 😉
Seriously though, when’s the last time you told anyone, or even just yourself exactly what you wanted and then did something about it? For me, it’s been too long!
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to find a “balance” in my life. Since the move, the wreck, and everything in between, my life has been…dare I say, a little hectic? Needless to say, I’ve been stressed to the max and this morning, I just had to do something about it.
I woke up this morning at 6:00am to the sound of my alarm and my workout clothes waiting for me next to the bed….but I didn’t want to workout. My muscles were sore from “trying on” Level 3 of The Shred yesterday (hello pylometrics!) and all I really wanted was a nice quiet morning before a 10 hour shift at the hospital. And even though I already took a rest day on Tuesday, I made a decision: the DVD will be here tomorrow…my sanity, may not be!
No regrets what-so-ever!
You know why?
Because my morning consisted of:
A mug of 1/2 caf coffee half the size of my head
with a side of Google Reader and a few of my favorite blogs!
A peanut buttery banana scramble topped with blueberry jam
Ahhh, blooby jam…I’ve missed you so!
Packing the same exact thing for lunch 4 days in a row
because I’m STILL not tired of it yet!
Picking out my favorite scrub top to wear
I love the cinch below the bust!
Straightening my hair for the first time in weeks and
actually being able to get a comb through it (simple pleasures)
Check it! 😉
Spending a little time with this guy!
When’s the last time you gave yourself what you wanted?
Haha, you are so cute! I love your top. My friend works in a doctor’s office and has to wear scrubs that she always complains about, so I should show her your outfit!
I took the day off from working out yesterday because my leg hurt, so I gave my leg what it wanted 🙂 It was glorious!
Oh goodness! I hope it’s feeling better! Isn’t your half marathon coming up soon?
I used to only be able to wear royal blue…solid…no prints…BORRRRRING! A couple of years ago they decided to let us start wearing certain colors, but everyone just started wearing anything they wanted whether it was on the list or not! Haha!
I gave myself some decaf and dark chocolate after work tonight… a match made in heaven.
Ohh, sounds like the perfect way to end a day to me!
i have to say that that’s the prettiest scrub I’ve ever seen! yayyy so happy for you that you got some relaxing time for yourself. I’m a firm believer that no matter what, we should always take some time for ourselves 🙂 It sounds like it’s almost selfish when I say it~but if we can’t take care of ourselves, it sure would be hard to help others! have a beautiful day~
Thank you! And I couldn’t have said it better myself, Ellie! So true that we must take care of ourselves so that we can be there for the ones we love!
Yay for taking some time to yourself! I feel like 10 hours at a hospital is a workout in and of itself, anyways. That’s a looooong time.
Love the pics; you and the four legged fuzz face are both beautiful looking creatures 😉
Haha! Four legged fuzz face…love it! Thanks Jess!
YES LLOVE PHOTOBOOTH!!!!!! that betta be photobooth- correct??
LOVE your nanner scramble! i keep forgetting to make that !
Photobooth all the way! I swear I’m easily amused! When I first got my Mac last summer, I must’ve spent hours in the mirror effects just cracking up over my faces!
I take a zillion of these photos too =) mine arent’ as cute though. LOVE your hair and your scrubbies!
I’m sorry all this schtuff has been chaotic but hooray for kicking its butt and making the most of things! <3 your optimism keeps me in check =) heart you for that!
I cant wait for our wine-o night! bahaha! I will need one after making this house decision!
wow – I actually thought that was just a regular shirt.. definitely doesn’t look like scrubs! adorable! My mom’s a school nurse and she always wears her favorite care bear scrubs via 1990. Love her!
Happy day to you, beautiful!
I love the pics of you! I’m glad you got some time this morning to have a little fun! I’m working towards doing some stuff for me, but I’m not quite there yet. Hopefully soon! Have a great day Heather!
That’s the cutest scrub top I have ever seen! Sorry. I just think you look really good in it.
Glad you took some time to yourself. I really need to do the same. I try to do enjoyable things like relax with blogs during the kiddos’ nap time. Today I’m hoping to do some yoga. That’s what I really want.
i do love the spice girls! 🙂 i’m ok with having that song in my head all morning now.
good for you for listening to your body and preserving your sanity! it sounds like a way better morning than monday!
Thanks for putting spice girls in my head, better then the god save the queen i have had so far until now!
LOVE that scrub top, and love the silly photos more 🙂
AWE!!! Your kitty is SO cute!! 😀
Haha, I totally hear you with taking pictures!!! I take pictures of myself all of the time! It is just so much fun to take ridiculous pictures! 🙂
Good for you for going ahead and doing what you want! I love your scrubs by the way! 😉
I love cute scrub tops, can’t wait till I get to start buying some haha And now thanks to you I will have the Spice Girls ingrained in my brain =/
You are adorable!
I used to have a spice girls cassette tapes that I listened to over and over and over again. (and over)
yay for taking a rest day. I did the same thing yesterday 🙂
Cassette tapes? What are those?! Haha! I totally had Spice Girls on CD…wait, what’s a CD?! 😉
The banana scramble looks delish!!!
Doing just what I want sounds absolutely perfect. I haven’t had a day like that in a while. Maybe a calm Sunday will happen soon!
Last night I wanted to go to bed early instead of going to the gym so that’s what I did and I felt very well rested today.
Your face… I love that sh!t! 😉
