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 :)


  1. oh god, i need a repair month. sometimes being a student is rough..!

  2. FUN costume!! This week was SUPPOSED to be repair-week for me too, but I kind of went on carb overload today! Haha. I will get back on track tomorrow, though.

  3. what a cute picture and a fun costume! I saw a really cute raggedy anne wig when I was halloween costume shopping and it made me want to be a rag doll, too! but, I ended up as Alice in Wonderland. As for the repair week, I totally need one too. I have been eating so bad lately. too many sweets and too much bread. the really bad thing is that I can't blame it on Halloween! haha
