|Archie's EXACT reaction...|
My second round at the gym was at 4 for legs--hit them HARD. And silly me didn't think "Oh today is leg day and I have to work afterward for 4 hours so I probably shouldn't wear heels." Nope, I wore them--as I was driving in the car I realized my mistake--I could feel a little tightness as I stepped on the gas/brakes as necessary. And then, with 15 minutes to spare before I had to be on the clock at LOFT, I whipped out my 9 ounces of chicken and broccoli. I'm a bit afraid of what happened next--I DEVOURED it! All of it! Yesterday I was having a hard time finishing even 8 ounces, and yet today I almost still felt hungry. Almost--it was actually water that I was "hungry" for.
It had to be the combination of my ass-kicking workout (thanks, Kevin!) and my refuel afterward, but my energy levels rapidly sank like a hit ship. Faster than the Titanic--that's how quickly. I honestly have no idea how I managed to get through work. But I did, so no biggie! I'm taking all of this as a learning experience though--I mentioned to Pleasants my energy drain and he said that's bound to happen with the carb unload (which is Wednesdays through Saturdays). I mean, it definitely makes sense, but if anything I wouldn't expect to start feeling the dragging sensation until Thursdays. Interesting.
Tomorrow I have a 5:30 workout, so I should probably get in bed soon (I'm currently on the bed, but I don't think that's the same thing). I do want to share with you a delightful little picture that will soon be talked about again on this blog for sure...
But anyway, I'm excited to try the coffee--just have to get through the bag that I'm currently working on--Hazelnut Cinnamon. And doesn't the sugar-free syrup look good too?! Vanilla! Not sure if it will taste alright with the strawberry shortcake coffee, but you know I'm still going to try it (just in case)!

In fact, aside from Ariel, I wanted to be her!
Can you find all 5 smiles?? Two of them are a little bit tricky. Are you doing anything special for May? Are there any fruits you love or things you would love to do but have to miss this month??
I hope you all have wonderful dreams about being your favorite childhood storybook characters tonight!
P.P.S. Shout-out to Brantley over at the Newsplex! Miss you already, you mentor, you (and our coffee club "meetings"...because everyone knows coffee means business)!!
