I’ve really started to get in the hang of things, well the getting up and driving to the gym at 5am part. Not the stamina part. I am exhausted on the stairmaster in the ams and it may be the fact that I am so tired. I need to start going to bed earlier.
Right now, I go to bed anywhere around 10:45pm-11:15pm. It’s too late. So technically, I’m getting about 5-5.5 hours of sleep. This is when I start to think that I wish we never got rid of that twin bed for Tyler. I would totally sleep in another room or have Bear sleep elsewhere. He deters me from living my fitness filled life. Though he agrees to turn the tv off in the evenings, he always has to have a sour face about it and then be on his phone, and that screen in a pitch dark room is annoying. He has and never will wake up with me in the ams, which I find annoying too. I get it. He’s not that type of person but only because he has class in the evenings until 9:40pm? Well, to me that lazy and I hope that changes once he’s done. There are a lot of things I’m waiting to see in him once he graduates… and trust me, he knows.
So until then, I will wake up alone in the dark always, and do my own thing, he needs to catch up.
JL gave me her bridesmaid’s sandals from when she was one not too long ago in Mexico. I borrowed it when I went to #doJim in NY and kind of loved the idea of having really cute shower slippers in the locker room. I felt fancy and she offered them to me so #duh, I took it.
I love seeing my cute little tootsies at Equinox and I’m sure people are wondering why they didn’t think to get cute ones before! 😛
Not only do they envy my bag, they now envy my slippers!
Thanks JL!! I love you~
Twice this week and I’m proud. I realized, coming in early will allow me to leave early but still not early enough to avoid traffic. What it actually does is, it makes me spend more money because I’m meeting friends for sips and eats. Not OKAY, especially since I’m on a goddamn budget. (BTW, I have totally been going over my budget, every month for the past 3 months. Basically the whole time I’ve been doing this budgeting thing.)
Anyway, I did my cardio, in my new #BeyondYoga pants and did some abs. I ALWAYS ALWAYS go into the steam room now. I just wish I was able to take my phone with me! 😛

Nike has been my go to for my shoes. I love their style and comfort. I even get the NikeID if I’m feeling fancy when it’s time for new ones.
Two weeks ago, I went to the gym. All last week, I didn’t go. So far this week, I went Monday, not Tuesday (yet), but hopefully I will the rest of the week. My sleeping has been off, so IDK how I really feel about waking up at 4:30am. The hardest part about it is that I wake up when the sun is not up. I hate doing things while everyone else is sleeping. I get scared in the dark so I end up leaving the kitchen light on and my mom and Bear always ask why. I told them I was scared and they laughed.
I went to yoga for the first time in (I want to say) 8 years. We had just gotten back from a day trip to Santa Barbara and I had an extra pair of workout clothes in the trunk. I was going to avoid traffic and get in a second workout so it was a no brainer.
HC offered an extra yoga towel. I didn’t understand what she was talking about until I got to class. They have created a piece of cloth to go on top of the mat while you do yoga. Brilliant! Better than a towel (for material wise and consumerism, I guess)! I told my friends, the last time I did yoga was before they invented this towel and I was dead serious.
Now I have more things to buy. Yoga mat holder and yoga towels. Bear isn’t going to be too happy!
I really went hard, 295% of activity on my Polar Loop! This tracks my heart rate, my steps, calories and sleep. I love that it’s accurate because I wear a heart rate monitor. Without it I would not feel satisfied.
My friend Jo dragged me to #HappyHour Spin at Aura Cycle on 3rd. At first I wanted to go so we can all eat a burger after, together… But after the class, I was glad I joined.
The crazy lights made my eyes feel a bit crazy but it was great since it wasn’t too hard (like Jo’s birthday spin at Soul Cycle) and it wasn’t too crowded. Although the room did have a stink. 🙁
I like my spin classes intense and loud with good music but not pitch black. I felt like I was in a club and it was great and all but I wish the lights would just be really dim and not pitch black. I also like to look at myself in the mirror. 🙂
Jo even say in front of class and lead us to calorie burning!! Go Jo!
Thanks for inviting me and now I owe you a $10 coffee!!
