Mumford and Sons, exhausted and trying to stay on track!

I got through my bad mood yesterday, drove down to the city with Chris, had a great dinner out and went and saw Mumford and Sons in Brooklyn.

They played great! Really amazing. I enjoyed their songs even more than when I hear the album. His voice is divine and their energy is through the roof. The only regret of the night: they didn't play Sigh No More, which I think is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard!

Fun night :) Our friends were in the section next to us, so we got to see them, as well, which is always great.

I slept in the car on the ride home (we didn't want to lose a day of work/painting/etc by staying overnight in Brooklyn on a Tuesday) but am still exhausted. We got home around 3:30 AM because of terrible traffic on the BQE. At midnight. On a Tuesday.  I will never, ever, ever be a NYC kind of person -- I will go there to visit, enjoy concerts, see a museum, hang out with friends. But then I am out and back to my quiet, little city where the streets are deserted at midnight!!!

Painters said today should be their last day. They promised to fix all the mess... in fact, the owner seemed pretty angry that the mess even happened. Said his workers were sloppy and should never have done that.

Cannot wait for it to be over!! I want my house/routine/life back :D

I've definitely been eating a little junky because of stress. Going to try hard not to do that today. Especially since I am SUPER tired and that is often a trigger for overeating. I want to get that all in control ASAP.

Talked to Chris about going strict paleo soon. I am thinking I will finish up the gluten free stuff that's in the house and then hop to it! I will definitely buy some non-paleo foods for my housewarming party (some chips and bread will be there) but I am going to make a ton of paleo awesome treats I found online. I definitely won't be a having a big beige spread of crackers, breads, pastas and dips! Lots of veggies, fruits and meats!

Also been working out in my house, using small weights or my own body weight.... loving having some sore muscles again. My shoulders, calves and quads especially today.

I might stumble (and freak the hell out like yesterday) but I am trying to get back up quickly so I don't lose too much time in this short life.

Namaste, friends!
