Very Productive Wednesday

I love it when I finish the day knowing I got everything accomplished that I needed to. Isn’t that the best feeling?

My sister and I started our errands pretty early this morning. We stopped at Dunkin donuts for some coffee. I forgot my camera, so I had to use hers. Her memory card isn’t compatible with my computer, so I had to take pictures of the camera. Sorry for the HORRIBLE quality!!


I discovered that small lattes (I ordered a nonfat, one pump vanilla) are only 99 cents at DD. I traded my one dollar bill for this amazing little drink. They taste better than Starbucks!! YUMM!

I asked the lady how the pumpkin munchkins tasted, and she generously let me try one for free! Two points for DD!!


Again, sorry for the photo.

After errands, it was time for school. I spent my entire afternoon in the lab working on my concrete design project.


I feel bad for having to drag my sister to the lab for 5 hours, but she was a trooper!  She worked on a playlist for Saturday’s Halloween Party.


My sister is such a ham.


I packed my lunch along, plate and all!


I made it in a rush this morning, so it was slightly boring.


My lunch included:

  • Turkey and Cheese sandwich
  • Apple Slices
  • carrot
  • snap peas

No worries, there were more fruits and veggies eaten not pictured on the plate…


…and around 4:00 pm an Endure Glo Bar. (Made by Angela, Given to me by Caitlin!)


Once I got home it was almost 6:00 pm. I needed to get my run in, but felt a little hungry so I made a banana with Almond butter for a snack.


I managed to get my run in, with the help of my sister!! She dragged my butt to the gym, and I managed to get in 4.0 miles in 35:45on the treadmill. It was fast, but felt easy!

This morning I was unsure about how running in the evening would be, and honestly I thought about skipping it. I’m so glad I did it.


Dinner was delicious!


I made a little bit of something for everyone:

My favorite part was the Salmon!!


Plus, a chocolate chip cookie for dessert…they are so good.


I need to continue this very productive day… I still have some things I need to get done!

One Thing at a Time

I have really started to realize how important is to take things one step at a time!

It’s so easy to get overwhelmed when you have a million different things going on. Instead of worrying about future stuff, focus on the task at hand.

Yesterday, I was thinking about failing classes (long term), not passing the FE test (October 24th), marathon training (still have 16 weeks…). Basically, I was worrying about things that need not be worried about at THAT moment.

I had two focus on what needed to be done yesterday, or today. Not tomorrow, not next week, or next month. Not even next weekend.

By taking things one step at a time, it’s much easier to get a grip. Caitlin helped me realize this yesterday, and I immediately got it. I was freaking out about all that could go wrong. My energy was being spread too thin, and nothing I was doing was being done to my full potential!

I concentrated on what I had to do right then and made a list. Once I realized that I only had two things to accomplish (study for two tests) it made it so much easier to tackle!

Today, I have just as much work to do. I focused a lot more today, stayed off g-chat and twitter, and got my stuff done! I even have time for a lunch post! 😀


I completely forgot about my Pei Wei Leftovers!!!



Thai Dynamite with tofu, veggies, and brown rice!


I love those crunchy little peas!

Already dug into snack number 1:


I’m sad that strawberries are going out of season! 😦 Bring on the honey crisp apples!!!


How do you stay focused on today, and not worry about the future?
