Yesterday while eating my dinner I declared to Billy that I was going to bed at 8:30 so that I could have plenty of energy to teach spin and teach high schoolers for the rest of the day. I hate slacking at either jobs so that best solution was getting a ridiculous amount of sleep.
I woke up at 2:10 a.m. because I thought I was late to spin (I always do this because I freak out if I am late to things but usually I fall right back asleep.)
I realized I was hungry, speed work boosts that metabolism, so I went out to kitchen and ate some cottage cheese and grapes. My BIL sleeping on the couch thinks I am crazy now. I went back to bed, only problem was I was WIDE AWAKE. This woke up Billy and so we decided to watch The Office.
6 episodes later and I fell asleep at 5 and then my alarm clock went off at 5:30. The WEIRDEST part of the whole thing is that I have had endless amounts of energy ALL DAY LONG, I can’t slow down. Billy must have mixed something into that cottage cheese of mine.
I didn’t have a lot of time to get new songs for a playlist except for ‘Part of Me’ by Katy Perry…it is a REALLY good workout song.
I am in love with the spin bikes where I teach. The little monitors are SUPER helpful because you can see your RPMS and I love trying to get each sprint faster based off of the RPM (revolutions per minute).
16.3 miles with 6 songs worth of heavy hill climbs…I feel pretty good about that. I promise that there were actually students, I just waited for everyone to leave because I guess some people think it is weird to take a picture of each and every little thing in your life.
Maybe I was wide awake last night because I was looking forward to some TJ’s Gummy Tummies that my new friend Bridget sent me. She felt bad for the fact that TJ’s is WAY too far away and out of the kindness of her heart shared with me the their V-day’s candies with me. They are like gushers but 1,000,000 times better, like everything at TJ’s.
On a completely random note, I didn’t mention what I got for my birthday. When Billy asked what I wanted, I couldn’t think of a thing. I have a treadmill and my fridge is full of Costco goods…That is all I need to be happy. What did I ask for then? Guilt free money. Ya know, the kind that you can use to go see The Vow again and again without feeling bad, or money to do completely selfish/unnecessary things like a manicure or pedicure or even going on a shopping spree at Forever 21 to buy more of the exact things I already own.
My question for you is, WHAT would you spend GUILT-FREE money on right this second?
Do you have sleeping problems? Do you have a hard time falling asleep? Waking up in the middle of the night? Not ‘hearing’ your alarm go off?
What store would you choose to magically appear within a 1/2 mile of your house?
-TJ’s and Nordstrom (right now we have one but it is CLOSING this month, I guess a poor college town can’t support that store).
