This morning I woke up at 7am but realized I could sleep in, sooo I slept until 8. I got almost 8 hours of sleep, yet for some reason I was still pretty tired. Maybe it was just this past week catching up with me.
I got up, checked myself out in the mirror and noticed my abs were flatter than usual. Hmm. I’ve been eating crap and basically haven’t worked out for one week straight, except for the past 2 days. Not sure what’s going on with that, but I like it!
I headed to the kitchen, and started warming up a pan on the stove. Then I downed a glass of water along with my Herbalife tablets, and started munching on an apple, in order to rev up my metabolism. I made a simple breakfast of 1 egg and 3/4 cup of egg whites and topped it off with a few spices. I felt a little better after eating but still felt a little off. Kinda weird.
I signed into Lyft around 9am and almost immediately got a Lyft request. Within 1 hour, I had 2 back-to-back Lyfts but noticed I was feeling a little foggy, sluggish and hungry while I was talking to my Lyfters, so I headed back home to find food.
I made a shake and had a small Naan bread thing and felt a little better. I then checked my email and decided to try and finish up this e-book cover I’m in the middle of designing. This thing is taking me forever to finish and we are already way over the amount of included revisions. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t designed anything in a while and so maybe I’ve lost my groove, or maybe I should have charged him a higher amount from the beginning. I feel bad charging him more even though the Project Agreement that he signed and agreed to says I will charge him an hourly fee passed 3 revisions. Why do I always feel bad about this stuff?! And then I wonder why I’m always scraping by financially. Ugh. That whole thing is still a work in progress… having your own business is damn HARD!!!
So I spent about 7 hours working on his project, creating a custom graphic and trying to make it perfect. While I was working, I listened to some motivating YouTube videos. I love listening to those, especially when I’m feeling frustrated, because they really help pump me up and keep me going!
My new roommate of 5 weeks came home around 5pm and I was just WAITING for him to throw some sort of criticism at me again, because I “didn’t do this” or I “didn’t do that.” He is totally OCD/a neat freak, and will call me out if I missed cleaning up something like a tiny crumb in the sink. I like him and all, but I wish he would notice everything I DO do and tell me how he appreciates what I do, instead of telling me everything I’m doing wrong. Furthermore, he likes to talk about him self a lot (one of my biggest pet peeves!) and thinks everything is better HIS way.
Of course it is.
Anyways, he didn’t end up having anything to complain to me about because I made sure to have that place SPICK AND SPAN before he got home!!! Everything was scrubbed extra hard, trash taken out, dishes washed and put away, etc.. etc. What now, son?!
Back to work: I finished up my graphic design stuff around 8 and decided to drive for Lyft to cap the night off. It was pretty slow at first but picked up a bunch between 10 and 11pm, so I was happy. Money is realllllly tight these days so I need to try to make money at every angle possible. For the first time in my life, I have debt. And not just a little; it’s a lot… well, for me. I guess that’s the price you gotta pay when you become an entrepreneur. I just want to know when the financial pain will start to subside. I despise owing money and paying finance charges! At least now I understand what’s it’s like to have a financial burden, BUT, I believe it will help me be more compassionate to others in the future who are going through the same thing.
After I finished driving for Lyft around 11pm, I came home, made myself a protein shake, and realized I didn’t eat any vegetables today. What the heck is wrong with me?! I need to go grocery shopping.
This concludes my post for today! I know there was more stuff I wanted to write about but I’m exhausted, it’s almost midnight and I have to be up in 5 1/2 hours to lead a workout. #stayonyourgrind
