Reason 1,938,005,972 why working out in the morning is amazing: when it’s 110 degrees outside after work, the gym does not sound fun AT ALL.
For many other reasons, though, I have been thoroughly enjoying getting to the gym before work. I can’t say it gets me energized for the day, though, but maybe that’s because I am still getting used to this sleep schedule! Hopefully in a week or two I’ll be boasting how much more energy I have for work from working out in the morning!
Speaking of work… it’s been a tiring week. Luckily I have a co-worker that is beyond awesome and brought me a yummy Strawberry Nirvana smoothie from Jamba Juice yesterday, along with my favorite pretzel:
The picture from my post yesterday was me eating that pretzel, in case you didn’t pick up on the fact that I was cramming my mouth full It was delicious and amazing and alllll that good stuff! I could eat that pretzel everyday! I’d be broke but happy! (And chubby! Haha!) It’s nice to have good friends as co-workers!
Today was filled with some different sorts of self portraits, because I took my first ever AT WORK bathroom self-portrait, which I really hate! The bathroom isn’t a place for a cell phone—I mean, why do you need it in the bathroom? Right?! But today I had it in my pocket and accidentally brought it in and decided to take a SP, since other bloggers seem to do it all the time!
That was both my first and last. Isn’t it creepy to see a toilet in the picture? I think so. Back to these babies:
Car, mirror at home, and at my desk: the classic SPs! I think I look better with all those shadows anyway. Optical illusion making my arm look smaller than it really is. It may be a trick but I’ll take it! I also snapped one before work, totaling 3 SP for the day. I need to get over myself!
Please take note of that kick ass puzzle I am working on in the background. It’s a hobby. I am officially 90 years old.
For lunch today I enjoyed a salad and a slice of left-over Hawaiian style pizza:
I did a strength work out on my arms and abs this morning and I was STARVING by the time I got to work. For breakfast all I had was a granola bar and a banana, so I dug into my left over pizza around 10:30, eating my salad at my real lunchtime of noon. It worked out great!
After work Matt and I braved the heat to complete our 1 mile run, like we did both Monday and Tuesday. Three days in a row—we’re doing good! Just a mile but it’s tough in that heat and even tougher since we don’t normally do too much “running”.
I’m going to have some awesome tan lines! And did I say 3 SP’s today? Make that 4. But before you get all “get over yourself” on me, I managed to pull the camera away from myself to take some pictures of my turdlings:
Except… by the time the stupid camera takes the picture (cell phones, what do you know—they’re better for TALKING than taking photos!) they are done being cute and back to fighting and biting each other. Then when I tried to take a video, they SENSED I turned the camera on and immediately stopped playing. Boo. Here’s what I got:
Maybe I’ll catch them next time. I swear those dogs just somehow KNOW when I bust out the cell cam. Annoying!
And for those of you who don’t know: we get Leon cut REALLY short during the summer because he naturally has fairly long hair and this time we wanted (and by we I mean MATT) to get him cut like a hyena but the groomer RUSHED and did a bad job. Whatever. There’s always next time!
Now I’m off to shower away this sweat and get something COLD for dinner. Have a good night, people!
