In stark contrast to yesterday’s lazy day, today I have a full list of things to do.
My morning started at 7:30. I climbed out of bed, got dressed, fed the cats and ran out the door. I had an appointment at Firestone at 8:00 am to get some work done on my car.
The gentleman at the shop told me it would be a while, so I walked up Highland to Hollywood Blvd and hit the gym.
I tried two new classes. I started with a class called Step plus Abs. It was a light impact step aerobics class with a big emphasis on ab work and core strengthening.
I enjoyed the class, and loved the instructors energy, but I have a feeling that I’m going to be fairly sore tomorrow. After that I checked out my first ever Yoga class. It was very peaceful, though I am not limber enough to do most of the stretches for long. Hopefully, that will come with time.
I knew the car would still be hours, so I headed home to start cleaning.
This was not your normal, run of the mill, cleaning. This was more like a spring cleaning.
I cleaned out closets, and busted out the tough chemicals and I am not even half way done. Though the bathroom looks pretty.
This is gonna be a project to get through the whole apartment.
But I am re-organizing and getting rid of stuff to make the place perfect for the wedding. I wanna come home (married) to a gorgeous, well organized home. I don’t know why. My friend Kelly suggested that it’s because it is a grown up thing to do, and being married feels grown up.
My car wasn’t ready until almost six. I jogged down to Firestone to pick up the car, since I didn’t do any cardio this morning at the gym.
After getting the car, and sitting through 20 minutes of traffic to go 2 miles (Hollywood blvd at rush hour is gross) I finally made it to the grocery store (Fresh and Easy is my favorite).
We had a coupon to save 10 bucks when we spent 50 and the fridge was seriously empty since we had just been out of town.
I spent 63 (which was 53 after the coupon) a was able to get enough food to last a couple weeks. I stocked up on veggies, chicken, salmon burgers, fruit, granola bars, and yogurt. Not too bad if I say so myself.
I whipped up dinner when I got home. Some sauteed chicken breast, brown rice and black beans. I snacked on it, but Mark and I are going out for a friends birthday tonight, so dinner is gonna have to hang out in the fridge until we get back.
Time for a much needed shower, and then I gotta go pick up Mark and head to the bash.
