This morning I was able to sleep in for the first time! I slept until 7:10am OMGZZZ- Guys this is a huge step for me. I’ve woken up between 6am-630am pretty much every day this week. I’m all for waking up whenever my body wants and I typically wake up early, but man it felt good to “sleep in”. But I woke up to NO POWER! Whadafudgeeee. That was fine though I just bought the newest Runner’s World and Cosmo so obvs still had tons I could do :)
My brother came home yesterday and it was the first time I was able to see him in aggggges! So we went out to dinner with my parents and my granma! We went to this tiny bar/ restaurant called The Dark Horse. Its probably my favorite place to eat in DeWitt. I usually get this delish shrimp salad but OF COURSE they didn’t have it on the menu last night.BOOOOO. I hate going to a restaurant not knowing what I wanted before going!! Sooo I ended up with the Tavern Burger and a half house salad and broccoli. I only ate half the burger too ;) sup for being able to have portion control while being out to eat- score one for meee!!
Went to the gym with ma mamma this morning, did 5miles in 38min 13sec on the treadmill doing speed intervals! woohoo! Did the first mile @ normal pace, then did 1min30sec speed, then 45sec norm, then last .5 mile at normal pace. (All at a 1% incline obvs- I have finally made it a habit to ALWAYS put it at a 1%). FYI I did the whole run focusing on my form (i didnt even use my ipod for it) I focused on a midstrike/toe strike. My calfs are a bit sore but that is to be expect. Some lovelydaily mile friends suggested some reading on natural and chi running. I also found this which also is seriously making me contemplate buying newtons…
I was SUPER sweaty after the run which is obvs a good sign ;) then went up stairs and did my abs/lunges/pushups/squats routine! I was planning on going to my running club tonight but the weather is absolutely awful here now. It was 52 and we could see grass yesterday and now it is a freakin snow storm!! We are supposed to get a total of 12 inches by 8!
I also realized mid shower (omgzz guys I’ve washed my hair for 2 days in a row now…wow big steps). Anyways I realized mid shower that I didn’t bring any nice clothes home and I have my first day of orientation at my summer internship tomorrow and I have another interview on Thursday…um failwhale to the max. Sooooo I had to run out to Old Navy (um I’m sorry haters can hate but I abs love old navy they have great clothes that are inexpensive and cute. I don’t ever wear clothes long enough (um meaning for more than a few times not meaning I walk around nakes…) and yeah. Love em.
Then OBVSSS had to stop at Starbucks because I was going through withdrawal… iced grande skinny caramel latte (2wwp+ and counts as a dairy serving-WIN).
WANT WANT WANT BUT WHYYY ARE YOU SO EXPENSIVEEEEEE (Sup birthday ;) March 29th baaayyybeeeee)
