It’s so nice to feel RELIEF and just get back to the usual daily events and tasks instead of studying my life away!  Yes, I still have a lot of reading and schoolwork to stay caught up on, but nothing I can’t handle. 🙂

By the time I made it through the 2 exams I had yesterday, I looked and felt like I just ran a marathon.  It’s amazing all the energy that gets drained out of you when you’re under intense stress!  So I was definitely in the mood for something simple, quick, and classic once I got back to my apartment…

Toasted Ezekiel Gluten Free English Muffins topped with Trader Joe’s Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter and organic cherry fruit spread.

With organic carrots and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.

I had a serious laughing attack last night watching the Jersey Shore Cast on Silent Library on MTV.  Seriously, the one with Ron and the punching TV is HILARIOUS.

 
I got 8 hours of sleep in last night, which hasn’t happened in about 2 weeks, and it felt SO good!  This morning I was ready to go at 6:30am with a bowl of Nature’s Path Optimum Blueberries and Cinnamon with unsweetened almond milk and an organic banana on the side for breakfast.

Today has been pretty laid back, which is just what I needed.  I’m going to a yoga class this evening AND teaching a class later on.  Tomorrow I’m catching up with a couple of friends over coffee and can’t wait to get back to having a social life again! 
 

What do you like to do once you’re done with a stressful workload?
