Oh wow-really went off the rails! After the races, I allowed myself to eat more carbs than usual as it does seem to help my recovery.
Coupled with that, the end of the semester, graduation, graduation parties, I definitely indulged. I felt tired and bloated by yesterday so I decided to do a fast starting at dinner and will clean up my diet this week. Less than 3 weeks until I'm in Florida and I want to be In good shape by then! Without any races on the horizon, I can go pretty low carb which will be nice.
Sleep was great until thurs and then it was horrible! Eek! I only got 5 hours of sleep on thurs (got to bed late and got up at 430), 5.5 on sat (got home very late and had to get up and be on campus by 8) and Saturday (stayed out late and couldn't sleep in).
I'm pretty exhausted and with school starting on Weds, I need to get a lot of sleep. My goal for the week is to be in bed by 10 except weds because I don't get out of class until 1015! This weekend I should be able to catch up on sleep which should be good.

This was a very hectic week. Graduation week is always busy with events and with the rain on Friday, it was even crazier than usual. To make it more tough, one of my good friends was graduating so I went to her ceremony and party-so much fun!
To make this week even harder, we have been dealing with a sudden passing in my boyfriends family and I've been helping as much as I can with arrangements and ceremonies. That has been very emotionally draining for all involved also contributing to my crazy week.
One positive was the dissertation conference I attended on Saturday. I listened to some of my potential chairs and have narrowed it down nicely. I am hopeful I will get my first choice!!
This week will be great at work-very quiet and I already have my to do list to work on! I start class on weds and can't wait to be with my cohort again (they're seriously all so amazing!).
And on Tues, I get my first root canal-eek but I'm ready for this hole in my mouth to be gone. Hopefully the recovery will go fine.
I will be at Disneyland on Friday to start the celebration of the 60th anniversary! I will be going back for a full day with my boyfriend so we can see the Parade and Fireworks (and since we will probably have to wait to see them, I will most likely bring schoolwork with me to read #nerd)
How was your week? Attend any graduations lately?
