Happy (early) Halloween! Friday has rolled around again and I cannot believe that we're at the end of October! I feel like October just started and now it's almost over! Is this a sign that I'm getting older?
I'm linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites!
Wednesday night my church had a Trunk or Treat. I didn't sign up for a trunk because I was sure I would still be working on the 3 grad school projects I had this week. But I worked endlessly on all of that homework until I finished....on Wednesday afternoon right before Trunk or Treat started! So I called my sister and told her I would be able to hang out with her. I showed up after I ate supper and she had decorated her trunk super cute and of course her
child dog Ralphie was dressed as Superman. This night was a FAVORITE of mine!
One of my friends/coworkers has started a new diet and workout plan. She's doing so good and she works out at 4:15 in the mornings! Well, I've always loved my sleep in the mornings before school started but because I'm so overwhelmed with grad school, I haven't been working out in the afternoons AT ALL. I have lost all motivation. So Wednesday night I was reading my new Shape magazine and found a workout that I could do! It involved sprinting on the treadmill and then doing kettlebell exercises. I set my alarm for 4:40 AM Thursday morning to head to the gym to try out this work out and it's now a FAVORITE! I was soaked in sweat by the time I finished and it's supposed to really rev up your metabolism. Now that I've gotten up early and survived, my goal is to do that every Tuesday and Thursday mornings before school and also on Saturdays.
Students who bring me my FAVORITE Halloween candy are the best! I ate probably 15 of the pretzel/hershey kiss bites. I shouldn't have but I ate really healthy the whole day--other than those haha!
Here's to watching LOTS of movies on the Hallmark channel this weekend and handing out candy on Saturday night!
