Today I woke up early, but Terry woke up way earlier. He was up by 5 to complete his 5-mile run before work--amazing! I'm always impressed when people wake up early; I can count on my fingers the number of times I've worked out before work in the last five years. As much as I love it when I'm done, I just can't get myself up at 4:30 or 4:45, which is how early I'd have to wake up to get a solid 45 minutes in before work. Any tips?
Once I did wake up this morning, after Terry was already showered and practically ready, I made it to the gym by 7 to work out with Jenn, our little summer routine. Boot camp called for 30 minutes of cardio, which flew by thanks to some fun conversation. I spent the morning eating breakfast, cleaning out our linen closet, and playing with Scout. I can't tell you how much I appreciate these days of arranging my schedule how I please, and I promise I don't take them for granted!
Around 11:30, I picked up Terry from work and headed over to Boot Barn, where we each bought cowboy boots!
|Obviously, mine are the black ones.|
My birthday is this Saturday, and Terry is taking me horseback riding on Sunday! It's such a thoughtful, fun, personal gift. We've never been riding together, but it's something I always loved when I was younger. My dad took me a lot when I was a kid and was very jealous to hear that we're going riding AND got boots. Happy birthday, indeed!
On my way home from our errand, I (ironically) couldn't help but notice this very (ironically) prominent building near a (ironically) very busy intersection.
I just...I mean...I don't even know what to say.
And this evening we ventured all the way to West Hollywood for happy hour sushi at Omi Sushi with some of Terry's dive buddies. We had a great time chatting with everyone, and I felt very welcome despite my aversion to diving. The sushi rolls were fantastic, and you can't beat the prices! Happy hour is every day from 4 to 10 pm! Amazing!
Tomorrow Jenn and I are meeting up again for another workout, and I'm looking forward to a day of studying, lesson planning, and relaxing.
As for now, I have a little kitten curled up next to me, and I think he needs some cuddling. I hope you have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
Would you take classes at a secret pole dance studio?
But seriously, when do you work out? Morning, afternoon, evening, night?
During the school year, I usually work out right after work, around 4 or 5 pm, but I really really wish I could get myself up to work out in the morning. Any suggestions for how to make it happen are more than welcome!
