The Weekender

Hiiii! I hope you’ve had a great weekend. Mine has been fun – I had a great run, did some shopping at J.Crew and got to spend some time with a bestie. Maizey had a play date with Annie the Bulldog (who is not so little anymore) and I got to hang out with Annie’s mom, Allison.

However, I’m feeling a little under the weather this evening. So it’s 9 PM and I’m already in bed. After this post goes up, I’ll read a little more of the Steve Jobs biography and turn off the lights, hopefully before 9:30. I love turning out the lights before 10. It feels so indulgent.

The Weekender

  • Ever wondered what the “best” sweeteners are? Or the worst sweeteners? You might be surprised by some of this article’s contentions.
  • After blogging for 11 years (daaaang!), Dooce captures the love of blogging in this post so well.
  • As a fellow shorty (I’m 5’1″), I’m newly obsessed with the fashion blog Extra Petite.

The Week in Fitness

S – Elliptical 40 minutes

M – Body Pump

T – Run (3 miles in 23 minutes)

W – Rest

Th – Run (4 miles in 31 minutes, last two miles at 7:10 and 7:22 min/mile pace!)

F – veryΒ gentle yoga…more like a stretching class

S – 12 mile run in 1 hour, 36 minutes (average 8:01 pace, with negative splits that last 5 miles, a mid- to low-7 min mile)

good night! πŸ™‚

What time do you go to bed? I try to be in bed by 10, but it’s usually closer to 10:30 or 11.

    Ugh, I keep thinking all those pics are just “unflattering angles.” I’m coming to realize that Annie is just a chunker.

    Lately, I’ve been hittin’ the hay around 9pm. It sounds good, but my body hasn’t yet adjusted to Mountain Time yet, so it’s really 11pm. Anything before midnight is a win, though!

      adjusting to new time zones is so hard!

    Bedtime is later than it should be – usually between 11:30 and midnight.

    Off to read about sweeteners! I can’t tolerate the artificials anyway, so I wonder what else I need to take off of my list?

    I am so glad Jill introduced me to your blog! I can’t believe you’ve been blogging for 11 years! I’ve only been blogging (publicly) for a week and already find it so fun and therapeutic. Thanks for the great links- the Tim Ferriss one was especially interesting.

    On work nights, I try and get into bed for 10pm at the latest. Weekends if we are at home I might stay up until 11pm, a real party animal over here πŸ˜‰ haha

    I have an alarm on my laptop that says, “Go to bed!” that goes off at 9:15. I try to make my way upstairs by 9:30, but usually read in bed until 10. I might be going to bed in just a few minutes tonight though – I’m exhausted!

    If I don’t get to bed before 9:15 I am a total grump the next day. My students actually call me out, I guess I can’t hide it well! πŸ™‚

    I may or may not have gone to bed 3 times before 9pm last week πŸ™‚ 9:30 is my usual time. I get up at 5:30 to run before work, and it takes me awhile to fall asleep and I wake up 3-4 times a night, so I need that time in bed. My husband goes to bed at 9:30 with me, however, he gets up at 3:30 to study!
