Last week I went a bit overboard with the treats and definitely felt it. I got back on track by the end of the weekend and am hoping to stick with healthy eating all week. I am trying to stay away from sweets and trying to bulk up my meals with more veggies.
I averaged about 7.5 hours of sleep and felt okay but had some issues. two nights iw ent to bed with a migraine and then last night i was up much later than I would have liked because I had tea way too late in the day.
The goal for this week is to get as close to 8 hours of sleep as possible. The marathon is 2 weeks away so I need to make sure I am getting enough sleep.

As you may have noticed, I have been MIA! I had a heavy dissertation week (I read about 60 articles!) so when I was ready to relax, I was EXHAUSTED! My brain hurts but I think I am at a good point to where I can stop reading for at least a few days and start writing. I have a 4 page intro due next week-so crazy!
I had a great friends' bday party last week-the first of my super close friends to turn 30! SO CRAZY!! I will be 30 in less than 8 months.
This week my goal is to really work on finding a balance. I am trying to have time to have fun with friends, get in my workouts, work on my dissertation as well as keep blogging. We will see how it goes!
How did your week go?
