So busy, busy, busy… I need some time to relax and enjoy. This weekend I will do just that!

Tomorrow I’m going out for Indian food (yes, that’s what we decided) with the other GLAM interns. πŸ™‚ It’s such a fun group, so I’m pretty pumped.

I’m dead tired so this post is going to be short and sweet!

I’m trying to eliminate coffee from my diet. I really don’t know if it’s going to work, but I thought I would give it a shot. I had decaf this morning to slowly ween myself off of it. This afternoon I had a really bad headache, which was definitely because of the absence of my afternoon coffee fix. I decided to replace it with this…

Way more refreshing than iced coffee! I think I can do this!

It was a beautiful day in NYC so I took advantage with a light 3-miler in the park.

It really is beautiful. I don’t want to glaze over these moments just because I’m so busy. It’s hard with the long days and I feel like my attitude has been a little sour lately. I need to step back and see the big picture of life again. This is part of the journey and an amazing experience that will always be a part of who I am.

Sometimes I (and I think we all do) get so caught up in the day-to-day grunt tasks that we forget to enrich our lives and see the world as a special place. I know I’m getting really deep here, but it’s true. Not every day is like vacation, but I think that’s the point. We need to take the regular days and try to love them in a different, more unconditional way or else life will pass us by.

These are things I think about daily… well between planning my next workout and meal. πŸ™‚ Wow, that picture really sparked something within me tonight. I hope you enjoyed the little window into my mind. πŸ™‚
