whyyyy am i awakeee?! ive been trying to go to bed by 10pm so i can be up by 6am to get in a quick workout before work (more on that later)… but for some reason if i hit the sheets that early, i cannot sleep past 5am. annoying. especially since im still tired. GAH.
actually more deep sleep and less wake ups than usual.
speaking of sleep, jawbone recently replaced my up24 with the new up2 and i loveee it. its much smaller than the up24 and, well, i guess thats about the only change haha but its a good one! i know everyones all about the fitbits these days, but i would 100% recommend the jawbone if youre interested in tracking your steps/sleep!
things i find myself doing between 5am and 6am? catching up on instagram. watching tv. reading blogs. thinking about what im going to eat for the rest of the day. (<- probably the most important thing.)
today on instagram: i wonder how this person got a hold of my family photograph (nor did they ask permission to use it, rude.)
not on instagram (well i guess maybe it could be) is this picture mary grace sent me yesterday. ha! silly doughnut. (unrelated but semi-related… i got an apple fritter from 7-11 this weekend… oh man are they surprisingly delicious. i wish i never discovered them as my willpower is extremely minimal.
especially when walking home from the bars.) i clearly ate it all before i took a picture, but im sure ill be getting one again soon and will share.
so i actually cancelled my huge cable package on monday (my bill was $194 last month… what the…) and downgraded to high speed internet and a cable package of about 40 or so channels, saving just about $100 a month. the only channel i lost that i really care about is bravo (i still get food network, HBO, E! and AMC… phew) so feel free to invite me over to watch housewives, k?
oh, and if you arent watching astronaut wives. start. now. im obsessed.
(you can also watch on hulu)
saw this youtube posted on another blog and had to snag it too! i think this song is a bit overplayed (aka annoys me a bit) BUT i love it with the movie mash up. hard to hate anything that contains clips from grease and dirty dancing, dontcha think?
now time for a quick workout video and then FOOD. todays breakfast is going to be a vega smoothie. ill post more about those in my workout summary post (spoiler alert: i havent lost much weight. but then again i havent gained it. small victory?) but these have been my favorite way to start the day lately! the usual morning mix:
- 1 scoop vanilla vega protein & greens
- 1 tbsp organic chia seeds
- 1 cup of silk cashew milk, unsweetened (cashew milk > almond milk)
- splash of almond extract (for a little extra flavor)
- ice ice baby
