Even though I was up right after the sun was yesterday, I had an awesome energy level. Probably all the carbs. Most of my morning was spent with Jillian. She took me through yoga meltdown and Level 1 of The Shred. I pulled it old school with the Level 1- but I like doing that every once in awhile. Mixes it up. Keeps the muscles guessing. And it always feels so good to feel the progress I’m making. It’s so much easier now than when I first started! Awesome! My arms are somewhat sore today- probably the chaturanga pushups from yoga. Killer. But I’ll do it again. Hurts soooo good.
After all that, I entered the time frame of my furniture delivery. It went wonderfully. The delivery guys were soooo much nicer. And the whole thing took maybe 20 minutes. No problems with the stairwell. They put it together and voila!You like? :) I sure do. It’s huge. And comfy. And I’ve already gotten quite a bit of quality time on it.
Mon came over to check it out and also gave it her thumbs up! It turned out to be a gorgeous day, so she also brought this:I know it’s been out a while, but neither one of us had ever tried it. Loved it! So we caught up a little while hanging out on the balcony and enjoyed the sun…What is going on with my neck in this picture? I’m not sure… and would have retouched it. But then I thought about it and really didn’t care. Clearly Mon was looking way cuter than I. I was bumming it out… In those jeans I was talking about yesterday (don’t worry, I was wearing underwear and they are in the laundry basket now).
Later in the day, I hit up the elliptical, too (can you believe how much physical activity I got yesterday? That’s a rare thing these days.). I’m hoping to hit the trail near my place today… it’s been nice so far this weekend and I want to get another outside run in! Slow and easy, of course.
This morning involved another go at steel cut oats. I’m getting better, but I think I’m ruining the bottom of my little pot by doing so (since I use milk when making them). Anyone have any more great tips for using steel cut? I could use them….Now this doesn’t mean they weren’t some morning deliciousness. I also added coconut, an unusually large scoop of pb, and a little honey for kicks. Thumbs up!
This morning unfortunately came just as early as yesterday’s did. This time I blame those damn geese that walk around like they own the place. Not that it really was keeping me from sleeping much more. I was even staring at the ceiling at 3:30 wondering why I couldn’t fall back asleep. Ironically, I got a text at about the same time. Weekends are the only time I keep my phone in my room- during the week it’s the whole “the room should be free of all distractions” thing. Anyhoo, it was one of my guy friends who just makes me smile because his actions are just amusing.
Him: WAKE UP!
Me: What? Enjoying a late night out, are we?
Him: Maybe. Sorry for bothering you, you can go back to bed.
Um… ok. So uh… thanks for the “WAKE UP!” then. What was the point? Clearly you have my attention at this point.
Me: It’s fine, I was actually awake because I can’t sleep tonight it seems.
(a few more texts happen). Apparently he was back from the bars and thought of me? Who knows…
Him: Sorry for waking you up at this obnoxious hour.
If you insist on apologizing repeatedly, why did you text me at 3:30 in the morning in the first place? He didn’t tell me anything of urgency. I have no idea why this conversation even happened. Really- it revolved around him thinking he woke me up. Ah the era that we live in- one of pointless texts and late night conversations…
I got another yummylicious blog award from Ayla at High on Healthy! Thanks lady! Since I’ve done a list of random things about me here, I’ll just give you two more. Since you asked for it.
1. I broke my toe once. I was at my parents house in my bedroom just hanging out (watching tv or something). I overestimated how much “bed” was left when I was rolling over. Down I went and I completely jammed my foot into the heat register, and my pinky toe suffered the worst of it. I was 20 years old. The awkward embarrassment didn’t happen until the next day when my brother had to ask, “Amy, did you fall off your bed last night?” Uh…yes. Yes I did.
2. One of the craziest things I’ve ever done at a wedding is jump into the pool afterwards. Don’t worry, this was after we left the reception and were back at the hotel. My friend Krista and I got the idea in our heads and decided to go for it. The gate was locked, so a couple of the guys were nice enough to give us a boost over it. And in we went! The wedding was in a small town and we were at the only hotel- so if we had gotten caught and kicked out, I’m not sure what we would have done. Of course we didn’t worry about that at the time, though. Nor did we realize how heavy a bridesmaid dress can be after getting soaked. Hold on tight to the top of it if you try this at home!
Enjoy your Sunday, kids! I’m outtie…
