So not a Morning Person

Yes, waking up at 8 am today is early for me. I don't know how you guys all get up sooo early! YOU GO GIRLS! haha. In the winter time, I find it terribly hard to roll out my nice and toasty bed just to step outside into an ice box. Right now, it feels like it is 9 degrees out! BRRR!

Last night, my Yoga instructor ended class with some inspiring words about being the most positive person you know. I will try to keep that in mind when I leave for the gym in a little bit freezing my booty off.

Last night at the gym, I ended up running 3.5 miles-furthest I have ever run straight!!! Woo Hoo! My pace was a little slower than usual because I wasn't sure how I would handle the extra distance (usually run just a 5k). Here are my stats:

Distance: 3.5 miles
Time: 31:08
Calories: approx. 369 (don't have a garmin or anything so you can't trust the machines)
Avg. Pace: 8:53/mile

I'm new to running, just started about 5 weeks ago, so I was wondering if my stats are even decent? I have NOOOO idea?!!! What do you all think?

After my run, I did a few shoulder, chest, and back exercises before my sister and I headed to our Yoga class. Of course it was amazing! I felt soooo stretched afterwards. Yayyyy!
Then I showered my sweaty self, hung out with a friend for a little, watched a weird movie, and passed out at 2:30am. That is pretty normal for me to go to bed so late..DING DING DING that is PROBABLY the answer to why I have such trouble getting up early! LOL!

My juice fast is going GREAT! Today is day two, I will most likely make a fruit and veg juice today. I will update later if I can...I have work 4-10 :(.


Off to a strength training class at the gym with one of my favorite instructors & some cardio too. See ya lataaaa!

P.S: For the Love of Oats is doing a PB2 give-away in honor of her blogs birthday! Check it out!

    i'm not a morning person AT ALL, either. my husband makes fun of me when i wake up because i'm so disheveled and grouchy
    hope you have a wonderful day <3

  2. I was trying to post yesterday, but I couldn't see the "word" to type in again. *grumble* Anyway, I just wanted to say that you are FAST. How long have you been running? Anyway, you're doing a great job and will be quite the speed demon soon!
