I am super slammed at work right now. Like 10-hour days and still can’t get it all done super slammed. I actually thrive when I’m this busy at work but I have to be careful not to burnout or run myself into the ground. Despite the craziness, I am feeling pretty in control of the situation in regards to my work/life balance. I can see clearly what I need to say no and yes to and where my priorities should be. And in regards to my personal life, I’m feeling on top of things.
I had a very productive streak on Sunday that led me to clean out four closets, move furniture in the living room, haul off furniture boxes and organize a lot of things around the house. When my living space feels clean and organized, I find that walking into my house becomes a huge sigh of relief and not a stressor. In addition, I have made my nutrition, workouts and sleep a priority this week. I find that this helps me feel like I have some balance and it’s not just work, work, work.
As I mentioned on Saturday, after a long hiatus I am back to CrossFit.
CrossFit prescribes three days on and one day off with workouts. I am so proud to say that I made it three days on for the first time in months and I am feeling amazing. Yesterday was my day off of CrossFit and I’ll be back on for three starting today. I am also finally starting to coach CrossFit and picking up the Wednesday 4:30 p.m. class at Metro CrossFit. Today will be my first day of coaching! I’m so excited.
And here’s a look at this week’s meals.
Greek yogurt with banana, granola and sunflower seed butter // Trader Joe’s gluten free waffle with peanut butter, honey and banana
Mixed greens with pine nuts, beets, artichokes, goat cheese and grilled chicken // Egg scramble with Trader Joe’s sundried tomato chicken sausage, avocado, mushrooms and goat gouda
Balsamic roasted broccoli and mushrooms with parmesan, pan-seared tofu with hummus, harvest grains blend // Spinach salad with avocado, sugared pecans, carrots, feta and a tuna burger.
Feeling good and ready to make the second half of this week as productive and good as the first!
Do you maintain good nutrition and stick to your workouts when you are busy or stressed at work? What’s your strategy?
