Ways Not to Lose Your Mind

You might think this blog will be me telling you ways to deal with stress when in fact you are completely wrong. I'm hoping you can tell me, because I'm going insane.

Let me tell you why.

My mom is coming next week.

Dad's not coming.

And, I'm working like CRAZY to get all my work done before she gets here. Which means basically double-time.

Additionally, Ryan and I have added P90X to our life. So, in addition to running four times per week, we have an additional 6+ hours of P90X. This means that for more than six hours a week, our living room becomes a deluxe torture chamber...

complete with whips...

(Resistance bands.)




Uncomfortable sleeping quarters...

and an evil man who scream at us to do things our bodies can't handle.

 



The added benefit is that I now fit into these:

My fat jeans. Yes, my fat jeans were getting tight. :(


The unfortunate consequence of adding all that workout time to my life is that my house has become utter chaos between work and workouts.




If you know me, you know this is HIGHLY messy for me. Ugh.

I'm also now wearing braces on both wrists, so that has slowed me down a bit too. Boooo.



Good news though!!! After three months of waiting, we finally got our new couch.


Love it! Love it! Love it!

Oh, and I've been eating, but not nearly as much. I've mostly been making things in bulk. Like this:


Garlic-Chicken Spaghetti w/Orange Peppers

and

Polenta - one of the most amazing foods ever





I swear I've been eating more than polenta and spaghetti, but seriously life is fast right now. I'm also working on giving Eat Move Write a new home. Very, very soon it will go on to greener pastures from Blogspot. Very soon, my friends. Very soon.

Oh! Guess what? Speaking of traveling, do you guys watch Man Vs. Food? You know, that show were the guy eats gargantuan amounts of semi-nasty, greasy food just to say he did it. :) Well, he came to San Diego! The episode airs tomorrow. Here's some info:

About the Show

Adam Richman, a food fanatic with a serious appetite, travels around the country taking on the most legendary food challenges. Adam has held every job in the food business and is now on a journey to explore the best eats our country has to offer. Whether it's a fourteen pound mountain pie, or an eight-patty burger, Adam is ready for the challenge.

San Diego Episode - Wednesday, June 16 at 9:00 E/P


Next Wednesday, Adam will experience the best taco in San Diego at Licha Libre and a burrito full of... french fries? After that, Adam visits Phil's BBQ and tastes a tri-tip signature sauce that changes flavor as he eats. At his final stop, Adam will be taking on the Broken Yolk Iron Man Challenge at the Broken Yolk Cafe. In this challenge, Adam will attempt to take down a twelve egg omelette that is smothered in chili and a pound of melted cheese. This omelette is served with a side of two biscuits and nearly two pounds of hash browns. In one hour, Adam will have to achieve what 96% of people have failed: finish everything on his plate. Can Adam finish it?

Want to know more about Adam's ultimate hunger quest or how he attempts to conquer the unbelievable legendary Broken Yolk Iron Man Challenge? Be sure to watch the season premiere episode (followed by another all-new episode in Boulder) on Wednesday, June 16, at 9:00 E/P.

    I just went through this myself....houseguests, dental work for Isaac, work (with new crazy amounts of responsibilities), Colin's surgery, ugh....so much! Don't worry about the house. I finally cleaned last night, after almost two weeks (that is a long time to go without cleaning my house when it's pretty small and there are so many of us) and it was very therapeutic. I came home from the hospital (Colin had surgery yesterday) and cleaned for 2 hours until about 10pm and then passed out...I was so tired. I suspect keeping up with the exercising is helping you. I always feel so much better when I'm exercising regularly....which I'm not right now...boo :(

    Just remember, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, it will be over soon. Take a few minutes here and there to schedule some 'you time'...read a book, shop for an hour or so, just little bits of un-winding time.

    I hope the visit with your mom goes well!

  2. Fun post. I can handle a mess in my house no problem, what I can't handle is dirtyness. I know the feeling before mom comes, having to get so much done!
