Good morning! Happy Wednesday! We made it to the middle of the week!!
I am in such a good mood today! We leave TOMORROW!! The day before vacation is always filled with excitement, some anxiety, but mainly EXCITEMENT!!
So yesterday, my stomach hurt. I was just feeling yucky and I started to blame my lunch and working out right after eating, but when I really thought about it, I realized that I was anxious. Anxious about flying. Anxious about what if it isn’t a good flight? And a bunch of other what if’s? I was real anxious about it, which is why I decided to come on here and talk about it…because maybe you share the same anxious feelings as me about flying or about anything else. (Remember, I don’t like flying because of the feeling in my stomach sometimes. This all goes back to my phobia.) I know we just flew in July when we went to Disney, and we do fly every couple of months so you would think I would be okay with it by now. But I am still anxious. I could list all of the things I am anxious about and the things I hate about flying, but I think it is better to focus on the GOOD things about it. So, here I go! I love being able to snuggle up with Michael on flights for comfort (even if he is sleeping). I love being able to look out and see the clouds, the sky, and especially blue blue ocean water high up in the sky. I love knowing that God is with me all the time, and whenever I need Him I can just call on Him and He is there for me. I love being nosey (yes, I admit it) and people watch. I love being able to relax, listen to music, watch something on the TV (if it works, because we’ve had some not working ones recently). I love just being able to go on airplanes and being able to go on VACATION!! I don’t want to feel anxious at all about it. Especially for a flight that I am EXCITED about because I get to go away with my husband to one of our favorite places! I want to enjoy every single second with him, including the plane ride…so I am going to do my best to do that! I am saying NO THANK YOU to anxious thoughts and feelings and saying YES PLEASE to happiness, positiveness, and joy!! 🙂
I got eyelash extensions put back on yesterday and MANNNN do I feel great! I mean, yes it wasn’t the best getting them back on (I literally have such a hard time when she puts the tape under my eyes and over my bottom lashes. I was tearing up which made the tape get wet and really loose, so she had to redo it THREE times! AH!), but beauty is pain and putting mascara (and just eye makeup in general) on every single day was a pain in the butt! I definitely missed have gorgeous lashes, and I am happy to say that they are back! I initially asked Michael this past weekend what he thought about getting them back on and if I should get them or not, and he is seriously the sweetest…his response was “whatever makes you feel good. You’re beautiful with or without them.” I mean, I guess he has to say that, buttttt it was so sweet, and after I told him that I wanted to get them done, he told me that I DESERVED it. Aw!! He’s a keeper for sure! 😉
We have LOTS to do today! Michael seemed to have left everything for today to get ready for our trip, and you know that makes me feel all sorts of crazy too because I feel like I have so much to do too. I just basically have to pick up a few more travel sized things, snacks, and PACK! Of course I waited until the last day, but I have everything together. I am just waiting on those dresses I bought from Lulus….which are supposed to be delivered today, so fingers crossed all is good with them please please! Along with having errands to run and having to pack, I have to work, and at some point I MUST go see my sister and nephews because I am going to miss them so much…even though our trip is only for 5 days, whenever I don’t see them for a day it feels like a year. Haha.
I literally jumped out of bed this morning, ready to get this day started with a workout!! I began with a 20 minute full body circuit, and a 40 minute run/walk on the treadmill. I ran for 10 minutes, walked for 5 minutes, and continued that for the 40 minutes. And now I am at work, ready to bang this day out and get on with our vacayyyy!
I won’t be back on the blog until next week, but if you follow me on Instagram, I will be sharing our trip on my stories! 🙂
I hope you have a fabulous rest of the week, and a beautiful weekend!! Xoxo ♥♥
