Happy with the progression of muscles on my back and shoulders. Now I just need my abs to catch up. 

But I like cookies. And gummi bears. And lattes.

We had one truly amazing weekend with some truly awesome people (and pups.)

Tonight I’m going to bed thankful for the life I’ve been given.

The Monday morning mixtape scene:

One of my many fav scenes from High Fidelity

I  have a busy weekend coming up, but I kinda want to curl up Sunday afternoon and watch Say Anything and High Fidelity…and let’s go ahead and throw Almost Famous into the mix.

thought blogging for sanity

I have literally been working nonstop and barely had a potty break for the past 7 hours. I’ve met with demanding clients, and did endless design and paperwork. And all while responding to needy constant emails along the way. I need them to leave me alone now!

So I am taking a break to keep my sanity.

I don’t really have much to talk about other than Patrick got a new full time job (his first since going back to school), and we are super excited! He’s doing package design for a local company. And we decided that with both of our schedules…it would be best if we both tried to workout in the mornings….before work….OMG  that shit is hard.

Normally I workout at 6:30pm and now… 6am. My body is not cooperating. lol   I’m barely able to do about 80% of the things I was doing at 6:30pm which is kinda weird, but also makes sense. I guess my body will adapt?  I hope!

Here was today’s early morning dose of death:

*warm up: 2min jump rope and the usual routine (high knees, side shuffle, etc) and hip mobility

*strength:  back Squat: 1×8@75% 2×8@80% 1×10@70%

“Payday” for time:

21 Thrusters, 115/75

800m Run

15 Thrusters, 115/75

400m Run

9 Thrusters, 115/75

200m Run

a reminder to myself

I’m retyping this in hopes of it lingering in my brain today.  This quote is taped to my monitor, but sometimes I need to be refreshed.

"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens.

If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then chances are that you’re not going to be very happy.

If someone basis his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time.

If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.”
