Checkmate.

I'm in a pretty good mood today, despite a rough start to my week.

So I got up at 4:30 this morning and DID NOT WANT TO.
This is the story of my life.
My alarm goes off at 4:15am. I lay in bed, one eye open, and check my emails, etc.
I lay there thinking "Maybe if I don't go to the gym Megan won't harass me today."
Fat chance.
That bitch is there errrday lookin' for me at 5:01am.
I swear, she pops up out of bed at 3:59am (no joke) without an alarm and is all 
"YES! IT'S MORNING AGAIN! LET'S DO THIS DAY!"
I am 97% sure she wakes up singing and dancing.
Her veins have coffee and Spark in them. I'm positive.

I, however, am the opposite.
I cling to every last minute of sleep I can get.
I LOOOOOVE to sleep. And dammit, I don't get to enough.

I posted this picture on Instagram when I got up this morning.
I said that it was a constant struggle for me to get up that early, but that the hardest part was putting your feet on the floor.
No truer words.

I went to the gym and did some spin and a nice little Tabata workout.
Which is basically just high intensity moves with shorter rest periods in between (ie jump squats for 45 secs, rest for 15 secs. repeat).
It's a GREAT way to get in a good workout on limited time, which is what I have in the mornings, since the gym opens at 5am and I have to leave at 5:50am.
I have been coming home and doing additional workouts in my driveway along with sprints, squats, pushups, burpees, whatever.

So anyway, later, whilst scrolling through IG, I see this picture from the always-impersonating Hubby Jack.

Now, look, I KNOW I do a lot of shit I get made fun of for. Posting a picture of putting my feet on the ground was NOT one I thought I'd catch hell for.
He replicated my tattoo and everything.
I'm wondering how long that took to scrub off, HJ??

You know he does it because he loves you.

I can take a stab. He's made several jokes on my account before. As do many other people.
And hey, I laugh at most of them, too. If you can't laugh at yourself, you're lame. 

Then I had my morning tea.
I'll take OWNED for a thousand, Alex.

I love tabata. Just started it this weekend at my gym. One of those great workouts where you don't have to think, just move!

Love the HJ combover!!!

Tamara @ The Workout Mama said...

That is funny! I agree with the getting out of bed to workout early, it has become so much harder since having a baby.

ummm....HJ didn't paint his toe nails to match??? lammmme.
if he's ganna spoof. he needs to do it right.

Elle Noel said...

LMAO!!! I LOVE that you got him back! I agree with those early morning wake up calls. My self coaching involves- "come on big girl- the earlier you get up the sooner you can eat!" Banana + peanut butter = motivator

Chris Dodaj said...

undomestic mama said...

You've got the Hubby Jack hair down!

BrandiH said...

LMAO, that was great!
I agree putting your feet on the floor is the hardest part! I had to move my alarm across the room to get my ass outta bed at 3:30, but the day is so much better when you start it with a good sweat. Thankfully no one talks to me until I'm done!

My husband is normally the singing and dancing outta bed kind like Meg and it drives me nuts!

This is random and not related to today's topic at all. I just wanted to let you know that the Mama Laughlin e-mail in my inbox errday is my motivation, not just to get up at 4:15 and drag my butt to the gym even when I'm not feeling it, but in everything; motivation to stay positive and live each day to the max, to be true to myself and everyone else, to love deeply and forget quickly, to live the best life that I can. Yours is the first blog that I have followed and didn't unsubscribe from within the first week. I actually look forward seeing what you have to say every morning. Just thought you should know. Thank you

Libby said...

oh my goodness, I thought the picture of HIS feet were YOUR feet and I was terrified!!

Candy said...

Your f'ing hilarious girl! LOL

I have to tell you I read your blog yesterday & thought of you & your picture this morning when for whatever reason I woke up at 5:30 and was wide awake. I figured it was God's way of telling me to get my fat ass out of bed & go downstairs & get on my treadmill. Just like you said, the hardest part of doing it is putting your feet on the floor. You were right, after that it got easier. Not easy, just easier.
