On Sunday my mother-in-law and I joked about using the song “Oh Happy Day” as our morning alarm. It is impossible to wake up in a bad mood when that song is blaring!
I probably should have used that song as my alarm today because when 4:20 a.m. rolled around and I was greeted with an annoying “beep, beep, beep,” all I wanted to do was roll over and go back to sleep. It took me a while to get into my groove this morning, but eventually it happened. I probably have my tumbler of coffee to thank for the nice little jolt of energy that finally hit me around 6 a.m.
My shift at work went well and I set up three fitness assessments for next week that I hope will morph into personal training clients.
Once I was done working for the day, I changed into shorts and a tank top and went through another Best Body Boot Camp workout. The most challenging part of the workout was, without a doubt, the tabata-style jumping lunges and jump squats. I completed jumping lunges for 20 seconds followed by a 10 second rest, 20 seconds of jump squats and another 10 second rest. Complete four total rounds and just try to tell me you’re not out of breath! It was tough!
By the time I made it home, I was more than ready for a filling lunch and reheated some leftovers.
In my bowl:
- Green onion
About an hour later, I found myself back in the kitchen blending up another green lemonade smoothie. I’m lovin’ them lately!
Now it’s time to pack up and hit the road for Jacksonville where I will be through Sunday morning.
I am attending a conference that kicks off tonight and lasts through Friday and my group exercise certification workshop is in Jacksonville on Saturday. See ya from the beach!
Question of the Afternoon
- Is your alarm the usual annoying beep or do you wake up to music? Any great alarm wake up songs out there?
