Saturday Morning Coffee Date {6/13/2015}

Hooray for the weekend! Who else is excited to get a break from the hustle and bustle of the week? I don’t know what was wrong with last week but it was not a good one. Long and very stressful work days do not make for a very good week. Anyway, how was your week? Hopefully it was much better than mine. I have never wanted a glass of wine more than after I left the office yesterday evening.

coffee date

It has been quite awhile since our last coffee date so I thought it would be a good time to get caught up over a cup of coffee. I am currently obsessed with coconut oil in my coffee. Have you tried that yet? I don’t know what it is about the coconut oil but it seems to add enough flavor and creaminess to my morning cup of coffee. I made the switch almost two months ago when I realized that I wasn’t using up my almond milk before it would bad on me. I don’t think I will be going back.

If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that planning a wedding is crazy STRESSFUL! We still have almost a year and a half before our wedding and I feel like I am pulling my hair out already. Pete and I decided to have a long engagement so that we could get married on a very specific date. Unfortunately, the venue we are planning to go with doesn’t allow couples to book until they are a year out from their date. So it feels we are in a crazy, never ending holding pattern. There are so many things that depend on the venue that I feel like I can’t really do anything until after we book our date in December.

If we were having coffee today, I would probably complain at least once about how sore I am. It has been 6 weeks since I started following a strength training program. I feel like I am ALWAYS sore. It is the good kind of sore but I really wish that it would let up a bit. I just want to go a day without some part of my body being stiff and sore. I can’t complain too much though because I am actually working towards my fitness goals. In addition to my strength training program, I have also been sticking to my weekly Orange Theory Fitness classes. After four classes, I am starting to feel more comfortable and I am starting to push myself a little bit harder.

If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that I am so NOT a morning person. I don’t like to wake up earlier than I absolutely have to. I also don’t do very well when I get less than 7 hours of sleep. I am literally a walking zombie. Yesterday morning, Pete and I were up early to take my car to the mechanic to have some work done. As I fumbled my way around the house trying to get ready, I realized just how much I really dislike mornings. It was hard to get moving and no amount of coffee helped me wake up.

If we were having coffee today, what would you tell me? Have you ever planned a big event? Am I only one that finds is super stressful? Are you a morning person?
