Good morning! Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a great week! It is down pouring here today, which totally puts a damper on the day and makes me feel super sleepy and all around just blah, but I am going to make my own sunshine as I am wearing one of my Walt Disney World spirit jerseys and pumping myself up for our upcoming vacation!! 😉
I’m linking this post up with Amanda to Think Out Loud, because that is my favorite thing to do on Thursday’s…duhhhh. I have some news that I think is exciting! Yesterday I didn’t wake up with a headache like the rest of my mornings have been going lately. That is some awesome news, to say the least! I also had a dream Tuesday night where I was running the runDisney Wine & Dine 10K and all I kept saying to myself was “I have to run faster! Faster! Faster!” (Hey, it wasn’t a nightmare, so I will take it!) So naturally, when I woke up from that dream, you bet I was ready to run! I started with a 45 minute HIIT workout on the treadmill, followed by a 15 minute ab circuit. It was a good one!
Let’s back up to Tuesday after publishing that blog post. I had work until later in the afternoon, and then got to hang out with Michael!! Whaaaat?! Yes, it is true! He got out of work at his “normal” time so we got to spend the rest of the day together. We went to the grocery store for all the fruits and veggies, picked up some dinner, and came home to watch some of our shows we had piling up on our DVR. We also went to redbox where for the first time ever I picked the movie, Tyler Perry’s Acrimony, but that was a total fail. We only watched about 20 minutes of it and shut it off. Let’s just say I won’t be picking movies anymore. 😉
I actually got to spend the yesterday afternoon/night with him too. It was great! We ran a couple of errands once he got home, picked up dinner, and this time I let him pick the movie at redbox. Haha. Oh boy, I learned my lesson on that one. He picked Tomb Raider, which I have to be pretty honest…I was not so into it, but at least he liked it. That’s all that matters, right?
This morning when I woke up it still felt like it was nighttime because it was (is) so dark and rainy outside. Like it is legit pouring buckets….now if that doesn’t call for a day where you stay in bed all day, then I don’t know what does. But of course, I can’t stay in bed all day. I got my butt out of bed and into my little ‘workout room’. I started with 3 rounds of 50 jumping jacks, 40 squats, 30 crunches, 20 push ups, 10 burpees, and a 60 second plank. (I found this off Pinterest like years and years and years ago, but it’s one I always go to whenever I need some motivation). Afterwards, I got on my treadmill for a 35 minute run/incline walk.
I started reading When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger on my Kindle the other day. I had gotten a notification that it was finally published in the beginning of June… I have a bunch of books on my wish list and on my pre-order list, so I was happy to see this was delivered to me! I’ve been reading a lot of self-help books and marriage books lately, so I needed something fun and light to read, and this delivers just that! I am liking it so far! Speaking of self-help and marriage books, I reread The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman to brush up on it last week. If you haven’t read that book yet, please do yourself a favor and READ IT! I usually love any of Gary Chapman’s books, but this one is probably one of my favorites.
Also, today marks 10 DAYS UNTIL DISNEY WORLD!!! Yes, 10 days and this girl will be in her happy place with her favorite person in all the world!! Which means I have been crazy buying all the shirts and all the ears for our trip…because a girl can never have too many pairs of ears or too many Disney custom made shirts, right? 😉
Alright, I think that is enough rambling for the day. Have a fabulous day!! Xoxo ♥♥
