‘Ello, everyone! I am ALL MOVED IN and officially stressed. It’s stupid I know. The opposite of what I should be feeling. Stress is stupid. But, I’m in between getting into classes, figuring out what I’m going to eat for breakfast, missing my family (I know, I’m an “adult” now, but I still miss my parents), and trying to adjust to a new place.
Look at this AWESOME closet space! Wow. I don’t even have enough things to fill it up, which says a lot because my Mom tells me I pack like Imelda Marcos. If I spelled that wrong, feel free to correct me. It’s something I’ve been making progress on (or that’s what I like to tell myself, anyway).
I’ve been really happy with the apartment and everything it has. It’s no fifth-avenue high-rise (one day, maybe), but it has great closet space (heh), basic kitchen appliances, and a spacious upstairs and downstairs. Needless to say, I think it will feel like home in no time.
I’ve already broken in the pots and pans!
For dinner, I pan-seared some tilapia in coconut oil and then had it atop greens with pumpkin seeds. I drizzled everything in pumpkin seed oil (an UNREAL recent discovery — so nutty and delicious, I could put it on everything!), a few squeezes of lemon, and a crack of sea salt. On the side, I had iced tea, which was perfectly perfect and homemade! I found a Cold Brew box of tea bags from Lipton that are seriously perfect for those of us that are always on-the-go. I have a large jug with a tap, so all I had to do was fill it with water, steep the tea bags for three minutes, and then stick it in the fridge. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Too awesome.
True story, I kind of sucked at CrossFit today. I woke up for a 5am WOD (mistake #1 –> not enough sleep), didn’t have enough coffee beforehand (it’s kind of my vice), and haven’t been stretching enough lately. I could really seriously use a massage. Or a yoga class. Or all of the above. I brought my yoga mat to Syracuse with me, so I’m determined to get some serious stretching in. Tight shoulders have been taking a huge toll on my overhead squats — I’m constantly wobbling, even at lower weights.
That was random. Still more unpacking to do, but it’s time for bed. Given that it’s the first night back, there’s lots of celebrating going on, but this girl has been up since 5am and needs some sleep. I think a bath and some hot tea sounds nice, don’t you?
