Happy Friday! I definitly did my happy dance all day! Especially since I’ve got a nice little three day weekend in store. Unfortunately, I stil have THE PAPER looming over my head. And . I . MUST. FINISH. IT. THIS. WEEKEND.
I was up at 4:44 this morning so I could get to the gym before work.
I arrive.. with a great chest workout in hand to do after my intervals on the treadmill.. only to find a mass of people standing outside of the gym.
It was 4:59. I’m thinking.. WOW.. they really hold to this 5:00 opening shizz. Oh no. They don’t. The person with they keys.. was just not there. SERIOUSLY?!
Ugh. So I am patiently waiting otuside of the gym with all the other early birds.. trying to figure out how I am going to adjust my workout.
I ended up deciding to just do intervals on the treadmill.. and just run for a little longer. I didn’t want to rush my weight training.. but was really in the mood to run.
Finally at 5:17 – the key person showed. So I got to work..and completed the same interval set I did the other day – except I added on the the end..doing more 30 second intervals at higher rates of speed.
I also extended my cool down to a mile. Final stats.. 5.07 miles in 40 minutes. Not to bad for a Friday morning.
What I was diggin’ even more.. is that in my 40 minute work out.. Mr. Polar told me I burned 487 calories.. had an average heart rate of 170. That.. my friends.. was an intense workout. I’ve never had a average heart rate so high!
Let me tell you.. I was NICE and sweaty after!
I am currently blogging from the house of the parentals.. and I made them the Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Rollatini that I had made a couple of weeks ago. We had quinoa and cherry tomatoes with a balsamic glaze on the side.
No pictures from tonight . I blame it on being in a different envrionment.. guess I got carried away and forgot! But it was liked by all
The reason I am home…. is the reason I need your advice.
Okay – I am gettin my hurrr did tomorrow morning. All week long, I have been having an internal battle.. a CHOP.. or a TRIM.
I am torn. I have reasons for both..
First – let me explain my hair. Very … VERY fine & thin. PIN straight (like.. won’t hold a curl for more then 45 minutes. I can go to bed with it wet.. and it will be nice and straight when I wake up. Yes it is
Keeping it on the longer side:
- I usually have long hair. It is what I am used to.
- I can rock the bun on top of head look.. all the time.
- I can do a few more things with it.. like put it in a braid. Okay.. that is really it since nothing else hold in my hair.
- Easier to manage on hot summer days
- Mixing it up
- Really getting rid of allllll of my dead ends
Hope you all have a great weekend. Anyone doing anything fun?! Sadly.. weather is supposed to be rainy here.. but maybe that will help me finish my paper! (MAYBE)
