So, today was weird. If you know me well, you might know that I have a thing where my body kind of naturally wakes up between 3am & 4am every morning. I generally lay there wide awake for a bit and then fall back asleep.

This morning, I woke up at 4am and my mind started racing. I started to worry about things and the stress of this next week or so started to creep in...and, well, I was AWAKE. I had originally planned on going to the Y to swim at 7am this morning. But, I switched up my routine and decided to just get up and go. Doors open at 5am and I figured I could maybe sneak an extra 1/2 hour on the elliptical (because it's less crowded so early). There's a 30 minute limit.

In case you wondered, there IS a line of people waiting outside the YMCA at 4:45am waiting for the doors to open. I counted 14. Geez....FREAKS.

Got in, got on the elliptical. Did my hour. All done before 6am. I was feeling GREAT! At the same time, I was driving away and thought, "It feels like I didn't even work out. It feels like it didn't even count."

emoticon

That's when Inner Jillian (IJ) shouted at me, "LIKE IT DOESN'T EVEN COUNT????? Wait a second...wait. Remember the first time you used the elliptical?"

ME: Yeah.

IJ: How long did you last that first time?

ME: Uhh...5 minutes.

IJ: Yeah...you're right. Doesn't even count. Psssh.

Well, you know...the day went on and work happened, etc etc etc. Legs started to feel this morning's workout eventually. Feeling awful stiff now. Definitely going to eat my words now! Haha. Definitely counted!!!!

emoticon

And around 3pm, as I was doing the most awful tedious website proofing work (click a link, document the result....read EVERY single word of a 50 page website and scan for typos...omg....it's AWFUL!!!!!), I started to feel pretty darn exhausted.

emoticon

It was then that I second-guessed my choice to get up at 4am! Haha.

Luckily, my little boy JUST came by and said he is getting sleepy and is ready for bed (it's only 7:45 and he had a nap today!) THANK GOD!!! I am more than happy to take him to bed (and get to go to sleep early).

Plus....you know...I wanna be in the pool no later than 6am tomorrow.
