Day 244

I woke just before the alarm and was sorta okay about starting the day. First thing on the agenda was French practice. I’m going to spend another week going over what I’ve already learned. I think my French brain is full and needs a little time for these new words to soak in.

Once hubby had disappeared to work, I worked out. I was still feeling sore from yesterday’s workout but that didn’t stop me pushing hard. There are aches on top of aches but… I like it.

Next it was time to put together a meal plan. I didn’t feel like doing it, so there are no new meals this week. It’s still a delicious week of fairly healthy meals, including two vegetarian meals.

Shopping / Lasagne : Tuesday
Indian Peanutty Noodles : Wednesday
Burritos : Thursday
Kung Pao Chicken : Friday
Steak + Coleslaw : Saturday
Cauliflower Pizza Bake : Sunday
Zucchini, Chilli and Ricotta Frittata + Spinach Salad : Monday

Then it was time for art. I didn’t know what to do for art and the longer I spent trying to find something, or even settle on which medium to use, the more frustrated and anxious I felt until I just couldn’t art.

After hours of beating myself up, I tried to do some ‘quick sketches’ and doodling. I decided to use ink so I couldn’t change my mind 100 times and I didn’t care how rough I was about it. It wasn’t a good experience. It just made me feel less creative when it all went wrong.

The only thing I can do is try again tomorrow.

I hope you’ve had a successful day. If not, good luck with your attempt tomorrow. You got this.
