It’s amazing how productive a Monday can be when you don’t have to go to work! I should do this more often… or become a stay at home cat owner? Is that allowed?
I had a relaxing morning and got to watch all of the Today Show while drinking coffee (usually I only get 20 minutes, so it was a win). Gosh, I love that Al Roker and his funny weather puns.
I pulled myself together mid-morning to attack the world and finish up Christmas shopping. I was hoping that if I was out in the morning, on a Monday, things wouldn’t be so bad… but that wasn’t the case. It was definitely busy out, but after a couple hours of parking, booting up, shopping, de-booting, driving, booting… you get it… I am finally finished with everyone on my list!
I made it to Target, Barnes and Noble, PetSmart, the baby store, the bike store and the library. I managed to get Derby a new cat carrier, which will be her home for 8 hours later this week on our drive to Kentucky. I’m sure by then she will absolutely love it.
After getting all of that finished, I made it to the gym….where, guess what I did…. I biked.
I biked 51 minutes, split between the upright bike and stationary bike. For some reason I was really feeling it today- my heart rate was definitely up. I did a bunch of abs and more pushups than normal- and I’m hoping I’m keeping myself in decent shape so I’ll be able to run when this is all over! I have a half marathon mid-March, so hopefully I’ll have enough time to train for that…and hopefully I am not losing all of my endurance taking all of these weeks off 🙂
I’m trying to get everything around my apartment clean before leaving for Christmas… and right now I’m lacking motivation…. maybe if I pour a small glass of wine…
