Hi everyone!

I know, I know. It's been like weeks since I last wrote. Unfortunately, I have been totally slammed with work, my thesis, and classes. I feel so overloaded right now. I've gotten to the point where I'm pulling 14-hour days and I had to choose between my blog and my social life and, well....sorry all, but I need the human contact.

I may have to put OHP on a sort-of hold until I can get things back together. I will be dropping in as I'm able to update you all and let you know whenever I see anything interesting, but blogging will most likely be sporadic for awhile. That said, I WILL try to drop in every now and then, so I hope you don't all get fed up and disappear on me, dear readers. Hopefully once this quarter gets wrapped up at the end of November, things will be less crazy.

In the meantime- how have you all been doing?

I Need a Repair Week

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great Halloween weekend. Mine was tons of fun- almost a little too fun if you catch my drift. After three days of late-nights, parties, eating mostly variations of cheese and bread (grilled cheese, mac 'n cheese, pizza), and sugary drinks I feel bloated and sort of gross.

So this week I'm proposing a repair week. It's kind of like a detox, except less formal and less extreme. I'm thinking of it as getting myself back to where I should be health-wise. This week I vow to:
  • Eat three sensible meals a day and some snacks, instead of waiting until I'm starving and then stuffing myself (not that I ever do that).
  • Drink tons of water and tea to stay hydrated.
  • NO pop. This is always hard after a few days of drinking tons of it.
  • Make most of my meals at least half vegetables or fruit. Catsup doesn't count.
  • Get back on track with running- I think I only got one run in last week. Eep.
  • SLEEP. 8-9 hours a night. Easier said than done.
All simple stuff, we'll see how it goes.

PS: Unexpected silence last week due to a series of massive projects due and some power outages at my apartment (fun fun). Hopefully this week will be better :)
