…. Somebody hit the lights, so we can rock it day and night.. people gettin’ down that right.. from AM to PM…
Can I get a little Christina Milian up in here? Sadly, I will not be rockin’ it day and night… (well.. at least not tonight…) but I am noticing a difference between AM and PM … particularly with regrards to my workouts.
This morning, as planned, I got up at 4:40am and headed to the gym. Once again , I had a phenomenal early morning workout… even though it was only 5am. I started off with some intervals on the treadmill – and ended up doing a total of 4.0 miles in 31 minutes. (7:45/mi avergage)
I headed into the group fitness room and did 30 minutes of lunges, squats, jump squats… pretty much every lunge and squat combo that I’ve ever done.
In 60 minutes time – Ihad burned over 600 calories. and felt absolutely amazing.
Now -lets fast forward to times when I go to the gym after work. Can I get in a pretty good workout.. YES.. But I definitely don’t get as hardcore a workout as I do in the morning. WHAT GIVES?
I’ve been trying to figure this out – and I am thinking it might be because I have not used any of my energy for the day yet? Or maybe it is because I know I am on a strict time schedule.. so I don’t lally daddle.
Either way – I want to have the heart pumping morning work out in every workout! I know I cannot get upt at 4:40 every day and then teach for 8 hours – so I am going to have to come up with some strategies to get the same sweat out of my PM workouts.
From AM …. To PM 🙂
Honestly – That is all I have for you today besides a few pictures…and an update on the Bake Sale.. that I have decided I am DEFINITELY going to do.
Today at my conference.. it was pretty much information over load.. and my lil brain needs a break.. because right now, it feels like…
it is going to explode!
A few pictures:
Told my brother how much better Synergy tasted when flavored. He bought them.. hated them.. and I have now acquired them…
Blogger Bake Sale Update!
Okay so I am totally 100% for my bake sale now. I think we have an opportunity to make it really successful. I clearly have never hosted one of these before.. so please bare with me.. as there may be a few bumps in the road. (i.e… trying to decide how long to give people to submit.. and when to have it)
My schedule is busy next week, and I know that I will have to devote a fair amount of time to the sale. SO. here is the timeline:
DEADLINE FOR BAKED GOOD SUBMISSIONS: Friday, June 3, 2011
BAKE SALE: Monday, June 6 – Wednesday, June 8, 2011
If you are donating a good, expect to be able to mail it by the the following weekend (June 11/June 12) .. somewhere around there.
As the sale nears, I will give clear guidelines and regulations as to how the sale will actually work.
I wanted to get the dates out there though – because it seems that is what people are most interested in!

Okay.. now I need to relax. Hope ya’ll had a good night.. almost halfway to the weekend 🙂
Question for ya.. What do you do when you have had a day of information overload? How do you get your brain to unwind.. and get ready to do it again the next day???!
