SuperMoon Sabotage! #ROW80/ #12WeekYear Y10R1: MidWeek Ten


Hey there!

Yep, it’s true! The moon was out to get me this week! It affected my sleep, my mood, my energy levels… pretty much everything. So there’s not a lot of progress to report as we get to the middle of the week.

Am I discouraged? Well, I was. But I’ve found my perspective. I took a nap yesterday, and went to bed earlier last night, and that’s helped a lot.

I’m ready to take on the rest of this week – even Friday the 13th (because, seriously, it’s followed by Pi Day, after all)!

How about you?
