I hate being the umpteenth person to say this--but whoa. This is maybe the first year I have really, truly felt that the time change has kicked me in the butt. I feel like I'm being peeled from my bed in the morning like an unripe banana. It is ROUGH. It's like my body just knows that it lost some sleep and I keep playing that mind game of "but it's really only ____ o'clock". I do this for about two weeks, and then I eventually accept the new time as reality. Change is rough on me. ;)
I had an insanely good workout week last week...like, ideal. I love when those weeks happen, I feel like something usually messed up the perfect workout week (usually sick kids), but--6 days of awesome workouts, trying new things, even. Gave myself a wonderful rest day Saturday, and then got right back to it yesterday morning.
Yesterday, in the checkout line at the grocery store I accidentally popped open (somehow) the lid of the blueberries container...and yea. You can guess what happened next. BLUEBERRIES ERRRRYWHERE. They bounced, jumped, boinged, and splattered in 800 different directions. It was like dodging a billion blue bombs, it was INSANE. And insanely embarrassing. Some super nice couple next to me tried to play it off to me that this just happened to us last week, and I don't fully believe them. That's something I would say to make someone feel less dumb in that moment. Then the husband offered to run and grab me a new carton of blueberries. I told him no, oh god, please, no--I'm taking it as a sign we don't need blueberries in the house this week. But thanks for asking. Embarrassing moment #1298320938 in my life. Add it to the list.
I finally worked up the nerve to tell a girl at the gym that I can tell she's been working her butt off, and her results are showing. I've seen her there for the last year, clearly she's on a large weight loss journey, but I'm telling you--so much change in a year. I felt like I needed to tell her I see the changes, and I see her working hard. I was all, Um, don't think I'm creepy by saying this but....and she was, let's just say, pleased. I hope it made her day, because if that happened to me I'd be floating on cloud 9.
Oh, I didn't forget that I haven't shared any photos of my sister's beautiful baby shower last weekend--but I'm hoping to have some to share with you this week! I actually wasn't the one who took the pictures, so when the photos are ready, I'm going to share details because it was pretty and it's worth sharing :) So get excited.
Aren't these two the cutest?
One day I'll use my real camera again. One day.
