Let me tell you guys something.
I remember some time ago, in the not so distant past, when getting up at 6:30 felt like it was the earliest, most horrifying hour of the morning. 7:00am- piece of cake. But 6:30?
Fast forward to now- and getting up at 6:30 on a week day throws me for a loop. Often times, if I skip my first alarm and let me second alarm wake me up instead, I’m shocked at how different 6:30 feels than my “first alarm”- aka 5:15.
5:15am. The new normal. If someone had ever told me that I would go to bed every night setting my alarm for 5:15am, I would have laughed.
But here we are, almost 8 months into my first “big girl” job and 5:15 is the usual.
Now, I don’t usually get up at 5:15 (unless it’s for a morning workout) but I still, always, without fail set my alarm for this time.
No matter what.
I guess it isn’t the worst habit to have? Unless I’m having a rough morning, and end up snoozing the alarm from 5:15 to 7:00.
The whole point of this story was mainly to illustrate that A) I have issues with the snooze button, and B) I got up yesterday morning for another early workout.
Woop! Another victory!
The workout of choice yesterday morning was actually an older Jillian Michaels workout that I haven’t done in forever- the “second week” workout from Ripped In 30.
It wasn’t the hardest workout I’ve ever completed, but it wasn’t a joke either. I got a good, sweaty 30 minutes in before 6:15 even showed it’s face.
I’d say that’s a Friday morning win!
I also made an amazing Blueberry Banana Oatmeal smoothie that was oh so tasty.
I really wanted to celebrate coffee Friday with the rest of my Starbucks gift card from Christmas, but there were some unforeseen circumstances that arose, so that had to be nixed.
After work, I went home to change for another workout until Shane let me know he actually had to work the open casting call for The Amazing Race last night. This guy- can you believe that’s part of his job?
I feel like this post is a bit scattered?
I blame all of the 5:15am alarms.
Anyways, it was all winning yesterday…until Shane and I went out on an adventure.
An adventure to find a movie we’ve been trying to rent on On Demand for the past 3 weekends.
Until realizing it won’t ever be out on On Demand.
So, we did the next most logical thing.
Low and behold, the red box was completely “rented out” of it. I seriously couldn’t believe it. I told Shane last night that I’m feeling like maybe we aren’t meant to see this movie after all?
The movie, just so you guys know, is….
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters!
I’ve been wanting to watch this for forever. I think stories about sea monsters are fascinating. I have a thing about sea monsters, mythical sea beings and prehistoric ocean dwelling things.
I dunno. It’s a thing.
I especially love this frighteningly awesome Plesiosaurus.
While he ^^^^^ probably doesn’t make an appearance in the movie, I still really want to see it! Normally I have much better taste in movies, I promise. My love of sea monsters is impairing my judgement.
I’m thinking we’ll go out in search of a new Red Box tonight- fingers crossed that they have it this time!
As for right now, we’re watching our home team WSU Shocker game. They are playing KILLER lately, and Shane goes to school there, so we’re pretty big fans.
After that, a workout may be in the agenda. We’ll see! 😉
Have a fantastic Saturday night guys!
