Hey guys! Guess what? I’m leaving for vacation on Saturday!! Oh, you already knew that? My bad 😉

Did you also know that this is a short week for me, since I am going on to a Nats game on Thursday with my company, and Friday is my flex day? Sooo, today is basically like Thursday for me. Yeah, life is good.

I have a lot of thoughts on my brain right now, none of which are really health/fitness related, so I thought today would be another good opportunity for a “This is How I Feel When” post. A lot of you seemed to like this post last time I pulled one together, so I’m going for it again. Enjoy!

This is how I feel when…

When I think about having to fit 9 days’ worth of clothes into my carry-on.

When I look into my fridge, and see my nothing but my pre-vacation food supply which includes jarred tomato sauce, mustard, and pickles.

When I found myself watching Bachelor in Paradise last night, and realized I will probably get suckered into watching the whole season.

When I’m stuck in a 90-minute meeting that has nothing to do with anything I work on.

When I think about the rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z might be breaking up.

When I think about leaving Jack for 9 days.

When my alarm goes off, and it’s time to work out.

How I’ll feel tomorrow afternoon, when all my work is done.

Woohoo! Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

Question of the day: What do you do to get ready for a vacation?

Hi friends! Like most of our generation, I appreciate the humor of a good animated GIF now and then. I’ve seen a few other bloggers post their favorite animated GIFs, and then come up with clever captions/scenarios to match (love this one!). Because I love reading these posts so much, I thought I’d take a shot at writing my own. Enjoy!

*All GIFs come from here and here*

This is how I feel…

When I follow someone’s directions at work, and then they’re wrong and I get in trouble.


When I can’t find the remote/phone/keys/shoes, etc.


When my two selves battle (the healthy side vs. the chocoholic side) and the chocoholic side wins.


When I thought a 4 mile run was on my training plan for the day, but it’s really 7.


When my friend ran 20 miles before 10:00 am on Saturday, and then biked to the bar where we were drinking.


When I’m asked to be a bridesmaid.


When something happens that’s great for the company/client, but really means 100 times more work for me.


When my computer decides it hates me and freezes.


When it’s time for bed and I want to snuggle with Jack.


When Fabio surprises me with food.


That’s all!

Question of the day: Did you like this post? If so, I will try to make it a regular feature here on CET 🙂
