“Nerves provide me with energy. It’s when I don’t have them, when I feel at ease, that’s when I get worried.”- Mike Nichols

This morning marks my 100th post on this blog! 🙂 It’s crazy to think that I have been posting on here everyday since my first post on October 13th. Since then, my life has changed so much! I have connected with so many amazing bloggers who are beautiful inside and out, I’ve run not one, not two, but three races. I’ve battled injuries and I have hit new milage goals. I have made steps to overcome my eating habits and I have started to realize what I want to do with my life. Who would have thought that keeping a little blog could do that for a person. 😉

Last night was rough for me. I couldn’t sleep. I was WAY too nervous for my juries today to even think about sleep. I found myself pacing the kitchen at 1am, needing to do SOMETHING! I decided to try baking (with limited food options), but it came out to be a disaster. (I’ll spare you the pictures ;)). I finally ended up back in bed at around 2:30 and didn’t wake up until close to 10:30…oops. Ick!

I have my piano jury at 2:20 today and my voice at 4:10. When I woke up this morning, my throat was all cruddy and hoarse. This is the third jury in a row that I have been not feeling too great. 😦 I’ll manage to get through it, but not as well as I would have hoped.

Breakfast this morning was fairly simple because I didn’t want to do anything to make my tummy more upset than it is (due to nerves).

Greek yogurt, peach slices, and oats. Simple.

I’m dreaming of Christmas obviously. 😉

Maci loves to get into everything!

Off to try to relax before my juries today! 2 juries and 1 final to go before break and I can truly focus on my half- marathon training! 🙂

How do you battle nerves? What do you do to overcome them?

    Congrats on 100 posts! To get over nerves I think of how fast the thing I am nervous for will be over. If it’s a test, it usually isn’t more than an hour. An hour is such a small part of the day!
