13.5 Hours and Counting

THAT, my friends, is how long I’ve been awake for today!!! You see, on Wednesday mornings for the past three weeks, I’ve been going to 5:45 spin class! Which of course requires a 5 a.m. wakeup call. Eeek. But actually, it’s not so bad…I figure the first three minutes of waking up are TORTURE no matter what time it is, so I just need to stop being a baby and deal with the 5 o’clock hour. Smile 

I always feel sooooooo great getting my workout done that early. I go about the rest of my day high on endorphins and feelin’ fine. AND it is the absolute best feeling to know that I don’t have to truck to the gym after a 9 hour work day.

To top off my already soaring mood, work absolutely flew by today! I get into the office around 7:50 a.m., and today we had a big lunch meeting that lasted from 10a.m. to 1:40pm. That meant that I only had to sit at my desk for a little bit at a time, and I was extremely busy when I did! Woohoo.

Lunch was super delicious, the people that we met with sent us options to chose from ahead of time, so everyone got exactly what they wanted. I had ordered the veggie lasagna, and man-oh-man I was not disappointed. It was so. good. And PACKED with veggies. I feel like a lot of times restaurants reeeally skimp on the veggies, but not this one! My lasagna was overflowing with eggplant, peppers, squash, zucchini, and spinach! Yum yum yum.


Let me stop rambling here to give a great big shout out of love to…MEG! Since I started reading her blog a few months ago, I have absolutely fallen in loveee with it (and her..in the least creepy way possible) She posts so many great things about embracing your body and letting go of your “flaws,” self-confidence, and a whole bunch of other awesome topics. She is also freakin’ gorgeous, and has the most killer arm muscles ever. (Um, that picture of you holding your niece? Holy shamoly!) Open-mouthed smileShe also wrote the nicest comment ever on my last post, so I wanted to take a second to say – HI MEG! YOU DA BOMB!

Moving on…

Tonight I have plans to go over to my old neighbor’s house for a little while so they can set up my wifi and show me how to operate their TV, since I will be watching their dogs sometime this summer.

That’s all I’ve got! But I will leave you with three of the songs I’m semi obsessed with at the moment!


Sometimes You Just Need a Rest Day

…or a rest month from blogging. It has been FOR-EVER since I’ve posted anything on here, and I don’t really have a great explanation as to why that is. I don’t want to make excuses, but since I’ve been in Orlando for the summer, I have been busy. Like, really really busy, haven’t-had-time-to-even-read-my-book-or-catch-up-on-tv-shows kind of busy.

You see, I am working full time (or almost full time – 36 hours a week) at my internship. This opportunity sort of fell into my lap at the last minute, and since starting on May 18, I have been a busy girl. I am now even more in awe of all you awesome bloggers out there who work full time AND blog often. Seriously, you are amazingggg!

Thankfully, I have been great about working out, and my eating has been decent. I haven’t been neglecting healthy living, just the blog.

I’m now in the process of trying to figure out what I want my blog to be, if I even want to continue it, etc. I’m almost certain that I DO want to continue, because I have really missed blogging and the awesome community! I’ve barely even had time to read my favorite blogs lately, which is so not cool.

Balance is key, and is actually my “word for the year.” So right now I’m trying to find my balance again, since having a full time position has certainly thrown it off quite a bit.

On that note, I have to run to a doctor’s appointment…after which I have to go in to work for a half day. I’ll leave you with a photo of Steph and I in downtown Orlando the other week…Smile with tongue out

I really miss you guys, and appreciate the whopping 3 people who have been still checking my blog daily. No worries, I am still alive and kickin’!
