Waking up is hard to do?

5 Oct

I did it! I finally woke up early and got a work out in. I have major sleep issues so I value every second of sleep I get however with it getting darker and cooler out, I really haven’t been in a work out mood come night-time. I had plans after work so I set my alarm for an hour earlier than I normally wake and laid out my workout clothes next to my bed. When the alarm went off, I was awake and excited to get an early workout in.

After some technical difficulties with both Pandora and my heart monitor I found my flow and got a nice workout in. After spending over $100 on my Polar heart rate monitor, I really don’t want to buy another one but this one has been breaking my heart lately. I water it down a bit, have the strap fitting comfortably yet it still wants to tell me my heart rate is 85 when I am doing kettlebell swings (which normally have my heart rate at 160+) so I am a tad annoyed. I kept it on this morning just so I could see how I was doing time wise because of that other little thing I had planned for today (aka work). It would be so nice to have 40 more hours to myself each week yet have an income. A girl can dream…..

20 lb Kettlebell
Upright Deltoid Row (12 reps, 3 sets)
Halos (12 reps, 2 sets)
Side Bends (20 reps, 1 set)
Swings (15 reps, 3 sets)
Squats (15 reps, 3 sets)
Shrugs (13 reps, 2 sets)

15 lb Dumbbell
Curls (13 reps, 3 sets)
Shoulder Press (13 reps, 3 sets)
Reverse Fly (12 reps, 2 sets)

Misc.

Donkey Kicks (12 reps, 2 sets)

After the workout, I took Lincoln for a much deserved walk. Like me, he is also loving the cooler weather which means we go for longer walks. It’s a win win for both of us. What’s not a win win is when he ran out into traffic this morning. We just won’t even go there……

I had a filling breakfast consisting of cheesy eggs atop sour dough toast along with a blueberry banana smoothie with Blueberries N Cream Protein Powder.

Nothing exiting really happened this morning but I had a BOGO coupon for Fuel Pizza so grabbed a coworker and off we went. I got a BBQ Chicken slice and it was perfection with the perfection amount of bbq sauce to where it wasn’t too soggy along with enough red onions to add flavor but not overpower it. It reminded me of a Texas BBQ Brisket sandwich we used to serve at Applebees. She paid for my slice but I got a side salad with honey mustard as well since a slice of pizza isn’t going to hold me over,


I met up with some friends at Polished and got a much-needed pedicure tonight. I love getting my piggies done but getting my piggies done while sipping on wine? Even better.

Now? I am spending time with this cutie

Also, on the agenda

My friend is getting back into Charlotte at 1115P tonight and guess who is a good friends and offered to pick her up? This girl. I am hoping that the wine makes me tired enough to nap but when I wake up, the coffee will hit for a little bit and then I can crash again then wake in the morning and do it over again? Make sense? Hope so.
