Morning routine and photo dump

Happy Sunday!  I have been MIA for the last few weeks because I went to Asia!!!  Guys, the trip was amazing, I went to Hong Kong and Bangkok and it was an unforgettable experience.  Being on vacation for so long made me realize that I don’t like work.  At all.  Anyway, as you may know, I work in Finance and the hours get pretty crazy.  So, because of that, I’ve attempted to fit my workouts in before I go to work.  My typical morning looks something like this:

5:15 – get up and go workout (usually upstairs but sometimes across the street at the gym)

6:30 – Hop in the shower then sit on the couch to drink coffee and watch the news

7:30 – Make breakfast and lunch, blow dry my hair, get dressed

8:15 – Head out the door

Waking up that early can definitely be a challenge but in the morning, I try to remind myself that it could be a late night in the office and I would be so pissed at my morning self for skipping.  That usually helps to get me out of bed 🙂

Anyway, I hope you all are having a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Here in Chicago, we typically celebrate the Saturday before which means we over imbibed had a couple drinks yesterday and watched the river get dyed green.  Here are a couple of pictures from the day…

ImageThe highlights of my workouts this week were as follows:

Monday through Wednesday I mostly focused on getting back to my routine so I really just ran.

Thursday, I did this circuit: Image

Friday I ran 3 miles then did Jillian Michael’s 30-day Shred (Level 2).  That workout is NO JOKE!

Here are a couple of photos from my Asia trip:
