Fire Alarm

We were woken up this morning at about 430ish by our buildings lovely Fire Alarm.



This happens periodically in our building (we were even warned about it by neighbors when we moved in) but this is the first time one has gone off without Zach being there.

I grabbed Gusman, we shut the bedroom door (it’s where our apartments alarm is) and went upstairs into the loft where the noise is a little more tolerable.   Thankfully, it only went off for about 20 minutes, and the animals and I were able to fall back in and our of sleep until my 6 AM alarm.

Nothing like a fire alarm to knock you out of bed real quick! I have a feeling I’m going to be a little off all day. . . but what’s new 😉

let’s back track

I actually made a delicious little one bowl meal last night.

I baked a small head of brocolli and about a third of a white onion with about 5 ounces of chicken all covered in peanut sauce for 35 minutes. I added that to a bowl of aboutt 2 cups of dressed greens (lemon juice, sriracha, and a bit of the peanut dressing), and a 1/2 cup of a quinoa I got from Vitamin Cottage.

All together it mixed into a delicious little dish that I will likely be having again soon this week :).  YUM.



My dinner was followed by an even more delicious lemon bar that I also picked up from Vitamin Cottage for dessert.  Talk about YUM!  This delicious food fueled me through a lot of bad MTV television.  I’m almost ashamed to admit that. . .

Workout of the Day

And to complete this totally sporadic post, my work out of the morning

Workout of the Morning: 10 miles stationary bike, 15 minutes easy strength

I started the work out with 20 lunges, 10 push ups, 10 bridges and 10 crunches before jumping on the bike.  This was a great way to warm up my muscles and get moving.

Once I finished the bike, I picked up light weights (5 lbs) and did some easy strength training to get the blood pumping.  I hope I don’t regret that later ;).

And now — back to work and reality!

Question of the Morning:  When was the last time you were woken up by a fire alarm?  Or just HAD a fire drill?

  1. Yikes! Glad it was a false alarm! In college, we had a big fire in my apartment building and I didn’t even hear the fire alarm (I was too busy listening to Jillian Michaels yelling at me to do push-ups haha). Someone started pounding on my door and when I opened it the hallway was filled with smoke. Super scary but no one was hurt!

  2. Last time was when the batteries got low on one of em in our house. It’ makes a horrible beeping sound until you replace the battery. And it’s not exactly easy to do that. I dread that sound!

  3. The smoke alarms in my house beep when the batteries get low — which always seems to start in the middle of the night. Then you have to decipher which one is beeping while half-asleep … not so fun. Also, I just wanted to say that I love your blog — I’m fairly new to the fitness game, and your posts give me great ideas for workouts and healthy meals. 🙂
