Tuesday Tangents.

Yes, I am in fact stealing this post idea from Hungry Runner Girl. I felt like I had nothing to say today and everything to say today so I might as well just own up to how random and tangent-y this post is!

Yesterday I had a super long day and by the end of my work shift I could barely keep my eyes open. It just goes to show that less than 6 hours of sleep DOESN’T WORK for me. I tried to get away with it and once again failed. I was telling my coworker that I function best on about 7.5-8 hours and she told me she was lucky if she got 6 per night. It just goes to show how different everyone can be, I really need my sleep. Point in case: I was obviously super tired when I went to bed Sunday night because I woke up yesterday morning with my pj shirt on inside out and backwards… 

This is what happens when it is 5:23am and you try to take a picture of the pretty trees covered in Christmas lights at your gym. I genuinely think I was standing still when I tried to take this. 

After an easy recovery run (that felt anything but easy) I did 40 minutes of chest, biceps, and abs at the gym yesterday. I used the new VIPRs we have at the gym and I had no idea how to use it so I was winging it. If someone could let me know what those are for that’d be great. They kind of look like giant crayons. 

After the gym I got to eat breakfast next to this adorable thing. It is a genuine Charlie Brown Christmas tree (replica)!! It is seriously the cutest thing ever. 

I am obsessed with snacking on puffed wheat cereal. After trying it during my “Sugar detox” I have fallen in love with it. I slice banana, throw in some raisins or other dried fruit, or sprinkle some cinnamon on it, add some milk, and it is delicious! I always tell myself that the puffiness takes up room and I deserve a second bowl because the first one was practically air. 

Oh, and clearly I’m a rebel. 

How was that for the most randomness you will see on your Tuesday morning! I have only 6 days left to try TWO NEW THINGS this month and I am struggling to come up with ideas/time! I will not give up though! After reading that man’s account of his first barre experience I am terrified of going to that class. 

What should I do for my remaining challenge?

What is your latest favourite cereal?



  1. Girl, I’m right there with you on sleep! Any less than 8 hours and I feel like a zombie haha. Pure Barre sounds like sooo much fun and I wish there was a studio that offered it in my area 🙂 Are there any classes at your gym that you haven’t tried? I’ve heard pilates and hot yoga are good workouts!

  2. go to barre it’s so fun! It’s not so much hard as it targets muscles that you’d never normally work, so even if you’re in awesome shape you’ll probably be a bit sore after the first class. But it’s really fun you get to be a ballerina for the day
