a Leana that cannot fall asleep
Last night I met up with one of the ladies from my swimming class at Starbucks. I had a London Fog, which is Earl Gray tea, steamed milk and vanilla. I needed to be up early this morning but I just wasn’t sleepy. I guess I just am that susceptible to caffeine! I think I probably fell asleep sometime around midnight… Which meant that this morning’s 4:30 am wake up was brutal!
I was planning on skipping swimming today because I had to give a big presentation at work this afternoon. I still wanted to get into work early, hence the 4:30 am wake up. As soon as the alarm went off I jumped out of bed and had one thought… Coffee!!
I never make coffee at home. In fact I very rarely drink regular coffee. But I do have a coffee maker and some beans for when my parents come to visit. I went downstairs and looked in the freezer. Thank goodness – I had coffee beans, but no ground coffee to speak of. Hmm. I took out my coffee grinder. I’ve used it once…
I brewed four cups and had a taste. In case you can’t tell, it was horrendously weak. Yuk!
I thought it may be because of how I ground the beans so I ground a bit more (a little bit finer), added a bit more coffee and brewed again. Stronger this time, but still yuck!!
Oh well, it did the trick I guess.
As for our team hill repeat ride today? Canceled again. Stupid rain. Angie sent a trainer workout to do, but I’ll be honest. I’m beat. I’ve also been sucked in by the Biggest Loser finale. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some better weather tomorrow. If so I’ll go ride outside on my own, otherwise I’ll do Angie’s workout inside tomorrow.
So what does that mean? I haven’t worked out since Sunday. I have a date at the pool at 9 pm with my friend DGB as well, so hopefully I’ll get a little something in today! And then I’m planning on going home, falling into bed…and waking up slightly later than 4:30 am tomorrow…
Have a good night all!
