I managed to get up by 9 today! I slept through 6 text messages this morning (before 8:30! seriously, who does that?!) and Jon’s alarm, plus his entire shower. He woke me up to kiss me goodbye and then I fell right back to sleep! I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed to my alarm at 8:30. That’s kind of a lie. I laid in bed till 9 with Tom sitting all over my face, but I was so comfortable that I still had to drag myself out of bed. Why is waking up so hard?!
I went to the gym right after getting up. I’ve been telling myself that I only have to stay for an hour, because it feels daunting to spend 2 hours there when you have a million other things on your to do list. I actually stayed for about 50 minutes and did 10 minutes on the elliptical, and then did biceps and shoulders. I could have gone longer, but my lab professor dropped a bomb on us last night that we had homework, plus our usual lab write up for last night, plus our lab write up for next week, and he wants them tomorrow or Friday! Not to mention, I have two super lengthy computer final projects to do and a test next Tuesday that I was going to study for all day today. Anyway, back to the gym… I never go in the mornings and I was a little unnerved when I got there by how many people were there, but they were mostly on the cardio machines and the regular machines! I guess the big free weight guys go later in the day, which is where I prefer to spend my time, so it was actually really nice! Maybe I’ll get up earlier and go more often (but probably not).
I think once school is out for the semester, I’m going to check out a CrossFit gym near here. Jon went to the one closest to here and said he liked it, but they favor their competitors. I plan on not being a competitor. I also have looked at some of their WODs and a lot of it looks to be more of the heavy lifting with less metcon. And right now, I’d rather do more metcons with CrossFit than heavy lifting because my thumb can’t lift heavy. But then again, I only want to go once a week… So anyway, we’ll see. I have a final on December 5th, so maybe after that I’ll head in to try and mix it up a little bit again. I really need to make myself go to yoga, but I just hate it! It’s so boring! I want to die of boredom every time I do yoga, but my body needs some help with flexibility.
Anyway, all these plans I’ve been putting off for awhile are happening to get done today. After the gym, I rushed over to Whole Foods and did all my grocery shopping. I actually have SO many recipes that I’m dying to make, but I work and then my family is coming in town so I won’t be eating dinner at my house much next week! After the grocery store, I dropped everything off and Jatoya (a friend from nursing school) told me she was ready for me to go to her work for lunch! I picked up our food and headed over to eat with her, with no time to shower! Her coworkers (all twenty of them in the breakroom) probably thought I was a slob, but she texted me 30 minutes earlier than I was planning. I came home from there, showered, sat down and did 10 minutes of biology, and then Rachel (a girl I work with) told me she was off work and ready to meet up. So we went to eat at Uncle Julio’s and then I just came home not too long ago.
I knocked out my lab write up for last night and I’m about to make Jon some dinner (and my lunch for work for the next 3 days). I’m back at work tomorrow and am really dreading it. After working so much last week, I still feel burnt out. These two days off were wonderful, even though I hardly got anything done that I wanted (my kitchen floors!). I did run yesterday, work out today, grocery shop, and manage to have some friend time. So it’s all good.
I’m just looking forward to Friday night cause Jon and I are having a date night! I think we’re going to go to this wine place right by our house that does tastings and pairings! They did have a groupon before, so I’ll need to check on that. With all this school and work we both do, our time together is pretty limited. It’ll be really nice to have an evening out and I don’t even work till 3pm on Saturday (I’m dreading that shift too!).
