Sorry Circadian Clock!

During yesterday’s workout I decided to throw in 2 hills. I don’t know what was with me but it was a bit of a struggle. Going up the first hill killed. I started to wonder how I was even going to make it for the rest of the run. And then the worst happened– the shin and ankle pain came back. I ended up cutting my run short at 6.68 km. I thought I had rested my legs enough but apparently not.

When I got home I was completely exhausted. I went to have a restful evening on the couch while heating my legs and I fell asleep at 8:30pm. I think I am about to blame daylight savings time. I love waking up in the morning and seeing that it is sunny and now that the clocks have gone back an ahead one hour I wake up to darkness. Waaah! My circadian clock is definitely thrown off. I didn’t think moving the clocks back one hour really made that much of a difference to my body but– I was sadly proven wrong. This morning, coffee is my best friend even after ten hours of sleep.

I’m hoping to get a good stretch and strength workout in tonight but I do not want to become a zombie again afterwards.

Also, my teeny bopper side is coming out strong today. I found some new music by the cutest celeb teen couple, Selena Gomez and The Biebs. I think my circadian clock threw me back to my crazy teen pop days because I think I like these songs a lot.

Cowbell and Bieber?! I have THE fever!

It’s true. As you know, Somebody to Love by the Biebs has been on a few of my playlists now and I think I’m ready to admit– I have Bieber Fever. I’ve always enjoyed his catchy beats but after watching this little treat– I may have fallen into a school girl all over again. Much like that time I fell for Hanson in elementary school. MMMBop indeed!


He’s just rockin’ out with the drums and the cowbell. Maybe I wish that was my swagga playin’ the awesome beat and that’s why I got the fevs? All I know for certain is that if I could download this song- it would be on my newest playlist in a second! Too bad I can’t. I tried. But don’t be surprised if you see more Biebs on my playlists. And I’m very sorry in advance to anyone who may catch this fever from me. And if you are just laughing at me for liking JB- you’re welcome for the ab workout!

Baby, Baby, Baby Ohhhh…..
