I Hit The Snooze Button 5 Times This Morning!

Last night I was supposed to run 9 x 400 @ 5k pace and after a long day in and out of work, I sat down after eating dinner and thought about the run I had ahead of me.

I was exhausted. My eyes were tired and my body wasn’t into any form of movement. I had a conversation with my husband and he said to do what you want to do. Run if you want to or take a day off. I honestly had to really think about this one.

So I ate three double stuff vanilla Oreo’s. The were delicious but so, SO bad for you.


Then I walked into our bedroom and saw the two piles of laundry that needed to be folded as I had another load in the washer.

Guess which option won?

I decided to fold the laundry, relax a bit with Sai and go to bed early. Lights out and under the covers at 9:31 pm is a record time for me lately but my body needed it. I am starting to feel like a cold is coming on 😦

I slept for 8 hours straight…didn’t wake up once until 5:33 am when I heard Hilary crying. A little cuddle and rock in the chair got her back to sleep and me back to bed until 6:25 am.

I then hit the snooze button 5 times. Umm…really, 5 times? Yup, 5 times!Β Good decision or bad decision, but that decision alone had me running behind for the rest of the morning. Meh….. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and arrive 5 minutes late to work.

I did however, pack my running bag so I can run at lunch πŸ™‚ I guess I set my priorities last night for today.



I gotta find my motivation again but sure happy I got the dang laundry folded and a full night’s sleep.

How often do you hit the snooze button?

Do you love/hate Oreo’s?

  1. Omg… I hit the snooze at least 5 times today too, which I never do more than once! That’s so funny that we both did. I had good intentions of a morning workout and sleep won, then a cuddle with Teghan.

  2. You definitely have your priorities in order πŸ˜‰ I love oreos, and I don’t mind the golden ones, but I especially love cookies n cream ice cream. I tried the golden cookies in cream ice cream once, but there wasn’t enough flavor contrast.

  3. Sometimes sleep is most important. So glad you did that and had some dessert :). Last night one of my athletes came to practice in tears. I thought maybe it was a break up or a fight. She was just exhausted from school and work and training. Sometimes we need rest. And that might be all you need to get over the motivation slump!
