Is how I’d describe me today. HYPER. Well – hyper for the first half of the day, second half, notsomuch.
Why, you ask?
Ohh, well that could quite possibly be because I was up at 4:20 this morning. Yes, you read that right. 4:20.
Was supposed to be an early-start day as I planned for a double-up Power and then Ride to get my Wednesday (ohh how I heart hump day!) going, but not quite that early.
Enter my sister‘s cats.
I’m cat sitting for her while she’s in Vegas. Yes, I’m an awesome sister. I realize this. (and for the record, I do love her kitties, I’m the their kitty auntie, afterall!)
Well, they are a wee bit on the high maintenance side, especially compared to my two cats who we’ve tried to keep separate, at night especially, and giving them little visits during the day since they aren’t really loving that they’ve got to shares their turf. Cats can be such b*tches sometimes, huh? 😉
Anyway, I’m totally digressing. The point of my story was our earl(ier) awakening due to Nala banging on the guest room door until she got our attention. Apparently, she was hungry RIGHT NOW and didn’t want to wait for us to come to her on our timetable. Luckily, for some reason I had a really easy time getting up today, who knew?
So, off we went (Scott joined me, which was awesome in and of itself!) to the gym. I hit up Power while Scott hit the free weights before we met up in the spin room at 6 for what turned out to be an incredible Ride class. Our instructor, Heather, was on FIRE. She was just back from vacation and apparently ready to kick her own butt and in the process, totally whooped ours, too. The room was filled with sweaty, red-faced spinners by the end, complete with totally steamed up mirrors – a sign of a FANTASTIC Ride class if you ask me. So, needless to say, getting to work around 9, I was on a total high, hyper as could be. It actually lasted about 2/3 of the day – when I promptly hit a wall around 2:30. Oh well – it was totally worth it for the experience, especially since I got to share it with Scott. It’s those little moments that get me through the day sometimes, and today was no different.
I’m totally sticky-noting (yes, that IS a word in my dictionary) today’s sweat-fest to my brain to refer to the next time I’m feeling a little bit on the unmotivated or uninspired side.
And on that note, please mark this post as probably my most random post ever, don’t mind me – I think the “hyper” in me turned to “slap-happy” sometime this afternoon or evening. 😉
I have days like that too where I am just so pumped throughout the day and then get silly tired by the end. Glad it was a good day despite the early wake up call. And I just LOVE when spin instructors are in the zone to provide a killer workout.
LOL – I hit the snooze wall around 2pm (my time) as well. I did weights at lunch, felt great, then zonk. Gotta love pets for getting us up at all times of the night huh? Do they not have schedules? Oh yes, they sleep all day. Duh.
I am impressed with the back to back early a.m. workouts on a WEEKday! That is awesome!
Will you send some of your hyperactivity this way? I have been dragging this week. Totally blaming the gray skies and rain. 🙂
Ha, thanks! I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but that back-to-back workout really got me SUPER high-energized! Kinda crazy given the time of day, I realize this 😉
SO true about the weather – it makes a huge difference when the weather is good, does wonders for the mood, energy levels, etc.
