Well, that went better than anyone could have expected.
Because of that, my report of today is a little boring. Sorry!
Day Three + Hell Night
OH MY GOD I SLEPT 7 HOURS AND IT WAS AWESOME. I get out of bed and go downstairs for tea. I have to say: It does not become more fun (hence my face), but it does become a little easier.
I clean out the dishwasher, clean the kitchen, and sort some paperwork. I figure out the secret to getting up this (INSANELY) early: First hour you need to do things that require very little brain activity. Things like exercising, cleaning, showering. Everything that requires thinking needs to wait until after after six.
When I’m able of coherent thought (and had some coffee), I open WordPress and finish yesterday’s blog post. Around 8:30 I go upstairs to get my stuff for yoga.
Yoga class goes well. Afterwards I gulp down almost a whole carton of coconut water.
Today’s Theme is all about rest and relaxation. This is mostly because normally Hell Night happened the night before, and on this day you will have to compensate with taking regular breaks, meditate and potentially nap. For me it’s food, shopping and more food today.
One useful thing I do manage to do: Get my iPhone screen fixed at the Apple Store in The Hague. I shattered my screen recently. Looking at that cracked screen was bumming me out so I went to the hysterically helpful Apple Geniuses to get it fixed.
For dinner I made a seaweed salad with salmon. I tucked in at 22:30. Little bit later than planned, but as the days are flying by I am getting a bit more flexible.
And that’s that for Friday.
What is interesting, is that I feel mostly positive about Hell Week at this point. That super corny quote about getting out of your comfort zone? Hell Week gets you out, and well slap my ass and call me Sally: interesting things do start to happen.
