The Thanksgiving Holiday was an exhausting one for me. Cooking, family, wisdom tooth pain (don’t ask), too much food, lack of sleep, sore throat and no voice…I could go on. I definitely woke up Monday and realized that I needed to shake the funk I was in.
I changed my schedule and decided to work from home in the morning. That meant I could drop my boys off at school and then hit the gym. That cardio felt GOOD after being so indulgent over the Holiday. I love Thanksgiving and I ate and enjoyed every last thing but I simply can’t do that every day. I felt run down, groggy and lethargic.
After the gym, I came home and did some work while throwing in all of the sheets and towels from the guests into the washing machine. I also decided to whip up some turkey corn chowder for dinner so I could get rid of the leftovers.
I headed out on sales calls in the afternoon and returned to soup, salad and playing in a guest free house with my boys. I finally logged on late in the day and scored my only black Friday purchase, a pair of flat, black suede over the knee boots and I saved about $58 bucks on the price thanks to the sale and coupons. Go me!
Nothing like exercise, a clean house, quiet space, a healthy dinner and yes, new shoes to turn my frown upside down. I think I am on the road to recovery. Next up? Christmas.
