First Week--- Done!

Week one out of 16 for the semester is officially over. And it's a 3-day weekend, so that's icing on the cake.

I learned this week that I do, in fact, love working out early in the morning. I may already be in my pjs at 8pm on a Friday, but that's what's to be expected from an 89-year-old woman trapped in a 25-year-old body. Who needs alcohol and booty shaking when I have a bed, pjs, and Netflix? 

Thursday I was at the gym by 5:10. I did my usual warm up run.

Then I did legs. I was worried about doing leg day in the morning because I can't usually walk very well after all the squats and deadlifts and lunges, but I managed just fine.

I was rewarded for working out early with the most beautiful sunrise. I don't see the sunrise very often, so this was a special treat. I'm sure it will be happening much more often in the future.

It has been downright hot lately. Okay, I'm a baby about weather since it is generally a good 56 degrees year-round. When I walked out of the gym, I felt sticky and gross (no, not from working out, I had just showered), so I checked the temperature in my car. Keep in mind, this was 6:30 in the morning.

And humidity was 80%, so it felt like it was approximately 9000 degrees. I promise I don't exaggerate. I have the utmost respect for people who survive and RUN in this weather all summer! The rest of my day consisted of student teaching and this.

I'm a tad but obsessed with cottage cheese and blueberries at the moment. I am also the weird girl in class who takes pictures of her food. They don't know I have a blog yet, so I give them credit for thinking I'm strange. This was my lunch today.

See? Obsessed. Fridays are class days. We have Foundations of Teaching and our Applied Behavior Analysis class back to back. I decided to get up early again to run and lift. Best decision I've made all week.

Happy Friday! What are you currently obsessed with?


  1. Whoo hoo! You rock girl!
    You have been my inspiration lately! Thanks :)

  2. I need to be better about squats, but I feel like my form is terrible. I've been doing so many runs on the treadmill because of the heat. Can it be fall, please?!
