Wedding Night Eve

Posted on

So, I guess I should have told you what I will be doing in my new “adult” job.  My official title is Outside Sales Manager.  I am working for a local hotel franchise, and will have a team of two under me.  The exact day-to-day is a little bit unknown to me, simply because I haven’t done it yet and there will be a lot of training at the beginning, but I think that a huge portion of my job will be meeting with representatives from businesses who are in need of hotel rooms for business travel situations and making them happy.   Sounds like something I can handle 😉  The great part is that I will still be teaching my fitness classes.

Last night, no one showed up to the spinning class that I was subbing for…so I decided to go shopping.  Or at least attempt to go shopping.  I was really in the mood for some new shoes or something, but nothing jumped out at me saying “buy me!”, so I went home empty handed and got dressed and ready to head out to Tastings, a little wine bar in Indianapolis.

It was a pretty chill night because today, two of our great friends are getting married!  We wanted to save any sort of shenanigans for the actual wedding…  I can’t wait for tonight 🙂


As we were taking a picture of the girls, Brian said we looked too posed…so he asked us to laugh about something.

We opted for funny faces instead.

It was a great evening spent with great friends, relaxing and low key.  Tonight will be a different story 😉  Let the celebration begin!

Totally Refreshed

Good Afternoon!

Let me just say that I have had one productive morning.

  • Clean the bathroom

Fresh and Clean bathroom!

  • Put away laundry
  • Sign up for Fort 4 Fitness
  • Go to Yoga
  • Run 6 miles (actually changed to 3 miles)
  • Learn song for Chelsea’s wedding
  • Schedule wedding photography meeting
  • Make cookies
  • Clean/vaccuum the bedroom
  • Banking
  • Call the credit union
And there is still plenty of time in the day to accomplish the rest!
Ok, so I really wanted to run 6 miles today before hitting up yoga.  Two things stopped me from doing that.  First, my knee hurt a little teeny weeny bit again.  Because I have never had pain like this before I am just trying to be suuuuper careful.  Now, the pain wasn’t anything debilitating, but there was definitely something there….and that is what made me nervous.  I stopped at mile three.
The second thing that prevented me from running was this weird feeling I get when I drink caffeine.  It doesn’t happen all the time, but sometimes I get sweaty, dizzy, shaky, and just feel all around weird. So, because of that and my knee I only ran three miles.
I then biked about three miles round trip (I went a little extra on the way to the gym) while riding my bike to yoga.  This was officially my second yoga class, and it was great!
The instructor was this little old lady, and if you saw her on the street there is no way you would think she was a yoga instructor…but she was doing all of the stretches with us!  My favorite stretch was….the pigeon.
This pose just felt the best and like it gave me the most stretch.  My favorite part of the whole workout was the end.  Throughout the entire class the lights were off, and the sound of light flutes, water, and chimes were playing in the background.
At the very end, she told us to lie down on our backs, and she gave us all eye pillows.  The eye pillow smelled like chamomile tea, and my body was instantly relaxed.  After laying on the ground listening to the soothing tone of the woman’s voice along with the music it was time to open our eyes and begin to “wake up our bodies.”  I seriously felt, and feel renewed!  I never take the time to just sit there and relax, so this class was great.  I hope that I can fit it into my schedule next week!
I have just been snacking throughout the day, so no picture for lunch…sorry!  Enjoy the rest of your Friday.  I need to cross those last two things off of my to-do list!
