I still haven't started packing. I got up early this morning with plans to be super productive, and while I have gotten quite a bit done already today, putting my room into boxes has not been begun. Honestly, I'm a little intimidated, just look at the instructions on this one,
I'm beyond confused!
My morning began with a nice gym session, twenty minutes on the elliptical and a half-hour interval workout on the treadmill. Although the interval workout was fun, I didn't find it as challenging as I thought it was going to be. The focus was on an increasing incline done while walking. Next time I try an interval workout, I might lower the incline slightly, but increase the speed.
It was an absolutely lovely morning, however!
Before heading back to halls to begin packing (not), I had a couple of errands to run. In order to sustain me through those errands I snacked on an energy bar that I picked up the other day. I'd tried some bars from this brand before and have loved every single one, so I had high hopes.
They call it a Bliss Bar, but would it taste like bliss?
Not too bad on the ingredients, cashew butter!
Yum! Bliss achieved!
I'm a bar addict (not that kind of bar!) and this was one of my favorites. It had a really rich, deep flavor that made it wholly satisfying. With some of these bars you wish they were larger, definitely not this one! I think the density (much thicker than a larabar for example) really makes these bars stand out. They resemble a Clif bar, but less chewy.
Fortified, I headed out to do my final grocery shop of the year! I had already bought several ingredients for my dinner and was simply looking for some extras to round it out. Luckily, Sainsbury wasn't too crowded for a Saturday afternoon and I got in and out quite quickly, while picking up a few extras to bring home for the 'rents!
Cadbury Dark Chocolate, so excited to try this!
Soreen, a malty bread that's kind of squishy and some sun-dried tomatoes
Seeing as it was a pleasantly sunny and warm day, I decided to spend some time outside before returning to halls. I decided to get a soy iced latte from Starbucks and sit outside for a bit, soaking up the rays.
Soy Iced Latte, a treat, but SO good!
Now, I'm back in halls and am running out of things to do before I start packing. I woke up this morning and glanced around my room only to recognize the incredible amount of STUFF I've collected since arriving at uni in October. It's really astonishing how a year ago I didn't have a life here (I didn't even KNOW where I was going to university a year ago!!) and now I not only have a life, but a house and whole lot of stuff. I'm always pretty bad at procrastination with packing, so I think I'll manage to get it done. Wish me luck!
So much to do!!
What about you? How do you deal with packing, or any task that you dread?
