On Wednesdays I usually get up and get my run in before my 11am class.  Mostly because I TA in the afternoon and I'm exhausted by the end of the day.  Well, we lost power at 3am this morning which woke up Patrick which woke up me.  Long story short, we had to get resettled and reset alarms, etc.  So when my alarm went off on my cell phone this morning I dismissed it and rolled back over and went back to sleep.  That was not part of the plan.  Thankfully I only slept an extra 45 minutes.  It could have been longer and that would have been much worse.  Either way, it meant I didn't have time to get my run in and still make it to class.  So I guess I'll just have to run once I'm done in lab.  What do you do if you have to change your workout plans?

The other reason I was so tired is because I stayed up to watch the Biggest Loser.  I think I'm addicted to that show!  NBC pushed it back by an hour though (because Jay Leno is back to the later slot) so it was on from 9-11 instead of 8-10.  This is kind of disappointing because this is the one show I watch regularly and if it's on as late as it was last night, I have to stay up by myself to watch it.  Patrick likes to go to bed by 10 at the absolute latest because he has to get up at 5:30 for student teaching.  I don't blame him at all, but it sucks to go into bed and he's already asleep.  And I don't want to wake him so I have to be extra quiet.

Finally, as it continues to be quite chilly here in Maine, I made a yummy fruit salad that looks rather tropical to me.  It has strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, and cantaloupe.  Such a yummy treat!  And it makes me think of warmer places.


  1. You can definitely still get your run in! Sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to work with it. When my schedule doesn't go as planned, I just psych myself up- ie, I tell myself in my head "I'm so happy that I am running at 7 in the morning, this is fantastic"... it sounds cheesy but it works! haha

  2. I think I have had to change my workout schedule so many times I am becoming a pro at it. LOL. knowing what's available, when, and having back-up plans really helps me.

  3. That fruit salad looks delicious! You should throw some whole wheat tortilla triangles in the oven til they're crispy and sprinkle w/cinnamon and sugar then eat the fruit salsa w/that! YUM!!!

  4. i miss thee. i just have boring bananas.

    p.s. the circumfrence for the shaft of the boot is about a 7" you think that'll fit?
