After I left you last night with my crazy stories, the day finally decided to settle down. Thank goodness because I don’t think I could have taken any more “excitement”. I wanted to keep things as simple as possible for the remainder of the night – starting with dinner. I don’t think you can get any easier than leftovers!
Or any cozier than a bowl of homemade tomato soup and a grilled cheese + hummus + tomato sandwich. Yep. That food kick is still kicking hard.
My sister was sick this week, so last night’s sister night got cancelled.
It ended up being an okay thing, though. I broke out the flashcards for a long round of review, then took a practice quiz on the NASM learning center.
I aced that section! Whoop! I have obviously been studying my little booty off. Going over my personal mountains of flashcards every chance I get. Taking every single quiz/test/review I can in the learning center. My OCD self wants to ace the actual exam too. I’m going to do my best to make that happen! Just have to do my CPR training in a couple of weeks and schedule my test.
I also spent the night watching Glee instead of The Biggest Loser. A show that ended at 9 instead of 10 pm was a must last night. I had an early wake-up call this morning. I would like to tell 4:40 am – you stink!!!
We have some special plans later in the day, as long as Makenzie wakes up 100%. The only time I could fit my workout in was first thing in the morning. I’m apparently all about making my workouts happen this week, so I set the alarm for beyond-too-early and got my booty to the gym shortly after 5 am.
I did some upper body weights in a half asleep state.
- Superset One: Narrow Lat Pulldown + Machine Bench Press
- Superset Two: Overhand Barbell Row + Dumbbell Chest Press
- Superset Three: Hammer Biceps Curls + Triceps Kickbacks
Nothing to write home about, but I got it in and could feel the blood pumping.
Then, I pedaled myself awake in spin class. I had never taken a class with this instructor before and had never even heard of him. I think he was half asleep too. It took a long while to feel any sort of energy for my workout. I don’t know how you early birds do it.
Time to go check on Makenzie! I hope she’s all better so our little field trip can happen. Be back later with an update…and that lasagna recipe I keep promising. Until then, Happy Wednesday!
