I’m all about my warm scarf this morning! Welcome to the cool temps, Denver! We aren’t expected to even get out of the 40’s today! Yikes!
It should be noted that Zach is literally going INSANE with this cold weather. He has one thing, and one thing only on his mind.
I’m still all about the Fall — I can’t quite psych myself up enough yet for the Winter and skiing — but days like today make me feel like it’s certainly coming!
Moving on . . .
Last night was a relaxing evening full of girly things. Cookies, Food Network, David Tutera, sparkling water, the good stuff 🙂
This morning I actually woke up feeling wonderful!
I think there are 2 elements that make it hard for me to get out of bed as the Winter gets closer:
- The dark monrings
- The COLD bedroom and WARM bed.
When I’m all warm and cozy in my bed, and I can feel the chill in the room, it takes serious motivation to talk myself out of bed in the early AM. Well, at some point in the early morning I woke up and turned off the fan in our room, probably about 3 or 4 AM?!
This made a huge difference because by 6 AM when my alarm went off, the room was stuffy I was actually warm and ready to get out of bed. Worked like a charm and I was ready to hit the gym for an easy sweat session 🙂 I’m going to have to remember this (although Zach may not like it so much . . . )
Workout of the Morning: 10 mile stationary bike + 15 minute plank weight routine
30 minutes to warm myself up on the bike, and a quick set of a plank routine from the latest SELF magazine + general weights. I do want to keep my strength training very light until after the race — lord knows I’m too injury prone to risk anything right now 😉
I finished BEAUTIFUL RUINS during my work out this morning as well — so look forward to a book review in the very near future 🙂 I highly recommend this one people — check it out!
Question of the Morning: Are YOU ready for Winter yet?
