This is what happens when you don’t do laundry in two weeks.
And this is only HALF of the 4 loads of laundry I did this morning!
I always say that I never “balance” my life; instead, I prioritize. I take an overview of everything that needs to get done, and then prioritize my schedule so I accomplish everything I need to (schoolwork, teaching yoga, blogging, studying, going to class, daily chores around my apartment), while still putting my mental and physical health first (exercising, eating healthy, socializing, relaxing).
Last weekend, laundry was obviously not on my priority list. ;) Sometimes you’re just stuck with the choices you make, and that meant doing double the laundry loads this weekend. Yes, it took twice as long, but I put it as a priority this weekend and made the time for it! And last weekend I accomplished everything that was a priority at THAT time. It all worked out in the end!
Besides doing my 4 loads of laundry this morning, I got a good head start on my current Design Studies pixelated painting project. Saturday mornings always tend to be productive for me! I broke away from the paints to put together my lunch:
Food for Life Gluten-free Tortilla topped with cheddar-style Veggie Slices, organic spinach, and organic mixed herbs.
With organic sliced cucumbers, activia light, and a glass of unsweetened almond milk.
After lunch I headed to the studio for a Power Yoga class. It had been a few days since I practiced IN the studio since I’d been doing podcasts in my apartment to save time the last couple days, and it felt so good to be in a class again!
Later in this afternoon I grabbed a perfect simple snack – organic kiwi, Siggi’s Icelandic-style yogurt, organic mango, and a Raspberry Klarbrunn Sparkling Water.
It’s 59*F outside right now and the sun is finally peaking out. Therefore, I need to get my butt outside and go for a walk IMMEDIATELY! This is the warmest it’s been this Spring and I don’t plan to miss out! 🙂
What have you put as a priority in YOUR life this weekend?
