Slow Down, Kristy

This is what it looked like when I sat down at my desk this morning. Hello, sunshine! Nice to see you again! Please talk to your friend 60-degree-weather and tell him it would be nice to see him as well!

One thing I do when I get sick is push myself really hard once I feel a little better. I want to make up for lost time with workouts, chores, etc., and sometimes I end up pushing a little too hard. I feel a little bad today, and I’m pretty sure it’s all my fault. As I mentioned last time we spoke, I signed up for an extra Crossfit class this week, which was this morning:

3/14/13 WOD
30 minutes (!!) EMOM (every minute on the minute)
5 burpees
10 pushups
15 situps

Ouch. It was very hard to get each set done in a minute, and we had to do it THIRTY times. Now, I’m not feeling too run down, but I’m still pretty congested so this high-intensity cardiovascular workout hit me hard. I’ve been coughing all morning. Slow it down, Kristy.

I think I’ll take it easy tonight and sleep in tomorrow before Friday evening’s Crossfit class, and hopefully I’ll feel a little better.

Short post today — things are still super crazy at work!

Question of the Day:
Do you ever have to tell yourself to slow down?

I Can’t Control My Eyebrow!

8 Mar

Happy Friday!

I woke up at 6:00 this morning and truly thought it was Saturday. Whomp whomp: What a bummer, right?! But that means I still have a full weekend to look forward to!

Here are some random things I’d like to talk about:

The sun came out to play today!

I just love these big, giant windows outside of my office! After two dreary, grey days, the sun has finally decided to grace us with its presence. It’s still pretty cold, but at least there is sunshine. Also, the weather forecast for the weekend looks like this:

…which means there is at least 1 outdoor run on my agenda this weekend!

In less exciting news, I think I may be coming down with a little cold. I’m definitely a little sniffly this morning. Hopefully it stops there!

Speaking of running, I’ve been really good about getting my miles in this week. I’ve done a 2 mile, 3 mile and 4 mile treadmill run so far this week. Yesterday’s four-miler is thanks to the ABC app on my phone and catching up with this week’s episode of The Bachelor: The Women Tell All.

Holy wow. Now, I just started watching The Bachelor this season, and I definitely see the appeal. It’s like a trainwreck! It’s so awkward to me. Sean will be on these intimate dates and the whole time I’m thinking, “He’s doing this with x other women….” — I just can’t see the appeal of being on that show! Watching it, however, now that’s a different story.

How about Tierra, huh? Could that girl be any more delusional? Before watching this episode, my favorite Tierra quote was:  “I can’t control my eyebrow! I can’t control everything on my face all the time!” – but now it’s, “I didn’t call you a liar, I said you lied to me.” and when someone explains to her that it’s the same thing, she says, “See? Everything I say is WRONG!” — oh man. I think it explained a lot when she said she was Little Miss Nevada when she was a child. Now we know what happens to Toddlers and Tiaras when they grow up!

I only watched through Tierra’s part and covered about 4 miles. I’m excited to finish it off, can’t wait to see what Ashlee has to say to Sean!

I noticed when I was walking back from the gym how bright it still was outside! It was almost 7 pm! After we turn our clocks forward this weekend, we will have so much daylight left in the evenings! Yay!

My Shade order arrived this week and I’m loving what I got. For how inexpensive everything was, I’m loving the quality. I wore the top above to work yesterday (sorry for the awkward selfie, I’m still working on it) and I got a lot of compliments on it. I love the trendy chevron pattern.

Ok, that’s enough random for one day!

I hope you have some nice weather this weekend wherever you are!
