Mornings are usually my most favorite time of day but today I woke up completely exhausted. I was frustrated with myself because um hello…what do I do all day now that school is out for the summer…oh yeah, nothing. I guess growing a human makes me tired every now and then. I was so tempted to sit on the couch but remembered that if I didn’t work out I would feel that way all day but if I did, I would feel infinitely better and more energized.
I told myself just to run for 30 minutes and boom, 30 minutes came and I felt great and decided to run for the entire episode of The Bachelorette aka 9 miles.
Afterwards I remembered that I haven’t foam rolled in 6 months (give or take a few months). I think I correlate using the foam roller with being injured or using it after a HARD workout (which I haven’t done in a long long time) and so I have neglected it. Boy did I feel the results of neglecting that sucker today, especially on my quads.
PS I just like to point out my soul mate behind me. Billy makes fun of me because I carry it into every room with me even if I know I am only going to be in there for 5 minutes. I also put it on a chair right next to my side of the bed and sleep with it 12 inches from my face.
Lunch was the same thing that I had for dinner the other night, a sourdough panini with bbq chicken and mozzarella cheese. I also had grapes and a salad with cottage cheese and Italian dressing.
Have you ever wondered what teachers do all summer long? I have the answer for you:
I got to get together with some of the teacher bf’s for pool time and chips eating, it was a good time.
On the way home from the pool I lost all control over my mind and body and was forced to drive to McDonalds to get a lemonade. My baby’s veins are going to be filled with lemonade by the time she is born, this has by far been my biggest pregnancy craving. I have at least one a day.
Bachelorette watchers: Who do you think is going to win in the end?
Do you usually feel energized in the morning? How long does it take you to really wake up and start feeling human?
If you run on the treadmill do you put it on an incline?
-Yep, usually 1.0.
Do you hang out with your co-workers outside of work?
Are you a lemonade or juice drinker?
