So, I’ve been kinda MIA for the last week or so. Sorry ’bout that. I guess it’s been a combo of writer’s block and dealing with some other things. Usually I’m churning out ideas like there’s no tomorrow but I guess I’ve needed a mental break. Oh well. I’ll tell you what I’ve been doing during my mental break. I’ve been doing workouts in my living room and holy geez! My thighs, legs, EVERYTHING! ACHES! Holy *&%^! I was also pretty stressed on Monday because of the Boston Bombing, and I accidentally clicked on some pretty graphic images. For those of you don’t know me well, I can be sensitive at times. So, I decided to just cuddle under a blanket and I ended up watching the Katy Perry documentary, “Part of Me”. It was actually really good! I’d never really paid much attention to her before but now I’m listening to her non-stop! Something about pop music is so inherently addictive. You might think “Oh how ignorant! Watching a Katy Perry documentary on the day of the Boston Bombings!” But you know what, I need to take care of myself. Especially with seizures, managing stress levels is essential.
I also found a good post about how to keep your shit together when you’re depressed. Since my post about depression resonated so much with so many people I thought I’d share it! Not written by me, but I thought it was cool! Check it out people! http://www.diycouturier.com/post/47249603128/21-tips-to-keep-your-shit-together-when-youre
I also made the most AMAZING smoothie this week! It’s a Banana Chai Smoothie, and it basically consists of lots of spices and a Banana! It’s perfect if you don’t really like to eat a huge lunch, because it’s super filling! I put Peanut Butter in mine, so it thickens it up a bit. It’s pretty tasty to have after a workout or just in between doing this and that. If you like spicy food you will LOVE it. I guarantee it! Shout out to my friend Kat for giving me this recipe!http://www.choosingraw.com/banana-chai-smoothie/
Hope you’re all doing well! xox
