Thanks to my work schedule of four tens (I work 10 hours for 4 days), I got to sleep in this morning until 6 30AM. Since I wake up between 4AM and 4:20AM for work, 6:30 felt like sleeping in. Also, it helped that I fell asleep at the very late time of 9:00PM. Yeah, I have the sleeping schedule of a 60 year old.
But waking up so early gave me plenty of time to watch TV and make myself a huge breakfast before the spin class at 9AM. (I might have eaten a two person serving of udon noodles, but my apt is a judgement free zone.) Normally I dislike spinning, but since running wasn’t an option, I opted for a spin bike.
I think I’d like spinning more if I had more mental strength. It’s hard to push myself when there are no numbers to motivate me. I’m an engineer, numbers are everything in my world. But it was a 45 minutes filled with sweat, which I’ll take.
After spinning, I used my gym’s awesome rumble roller. It’s probably one of the most painful things I’ve ever done, but it hurts so good. If it didn’t cost more than 40 bucks, I’d totally buy one of my own, but for now my lacrosse ball causes enough pain.
Then for a good part of the day, I cleaned out my closet and generally tried to declutter my apartment. Putting things back in their right place after using it seems like such a simple idea in concept, but I still have not mastered it. It’s just way too easy to throw things down after working for 10.5 ish hours and being in commute for an hour and a half. But in celebration of my new year, I’m going to try to nest and make my apartment feel homey. That means printing out pictures and actually hanging things up on the walls. No more empty, mental institution walls for me.
Now I’m off to relax with some chocolate covered sunflower seeds and glee until the fun night I have planned tonight. See you guys later!
