Short & Sweet

My day yesterday began at 6 a.m. and I got home at 9:30 p.m. Yeah. Writing this on Tuesday night, I was not in the best of moods. Just a couple quick things to catch ya up:

  • I seriously need to cut down on my TV/computer usage. It’s getting ridiculous. I am limiting myself to 2 hours of TV a day MAX, but I have no idea what to do about constantly being online. Any suggestions?
  • I hate Michigan weather right now with a burning passion.

  • I have 11 cuts on my hands. Yes, I counted.
  • I’m starting to miss working out a little bit. Planning on hitting up a yoga class at the gym tomorrow night and then Zumba right after and seeing how that goes.
  • I still love yoga and don’t plan to cut down on that anytime soon.
  • I ate the most delicious salad ever for lunch yesterday. It was so big that I couldn’t even finish it. That’s rare for me friends. I am definitely a member of the clean plate club.


  • I love my friends, online and in real life. You guys rock<3
  • I can’t wait to start working from home.

And a quick little workout to end with:

Cardio HIIT, repeat 3x (30-ish minutes)

  • 1 minute high knees, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute side to side lunge, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute static squat with boxing arms, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute skaters, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute mountain climbers, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute butt kicks, 30 second rest
  • 1 minute static squat with upper cuts, 30 second rest

I don’t even have the energy to tell you how to do these exercises right now. All I can get out is to Google it if you’re confused.



  1. I hope you got a good night’s sleep girl! Enjoy your classes today and know that you aren’t alone in hating weather…I’m over Pittsburgh’s too

  2. man I would hate that weather too, long days are never fun but sometimes unwinding at night is what saves my mentality.

      Exactly. I crave coming home and catching up on shows on netflix and responding to emails, as weird as that sounds.

  3. I am with you on the weather hatred! I am sooo ready for spring up in Boston!

    Connor and I recently got rid of cable so we watch a lot less TV, and our TV usage now includes just the essentials of current programs (Walking Dead, Bachelor, Mad Men next month, etc.) It’s not for everyone of course but I really like life without cable!

    As for the computer….who knows. I think being a blogger makes it tough. Connor nudges me about being “addicted” to social media, but I feel obligated to be wired in most of the time. It’s good to take breaks, but there’s that feeling of not wanting to fall out of the loop or lose readership. So tough!

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Your essentials of Walking Dead & The Bachelor are perfect; my essentials as well :p That will definitely be a big decision to make when I move out, whether to get cable or not. It is tough to get off the computer being a blogger. I agree with you in that I always feel like there’s something I could be doing.

  4. Sounds like a stressful day! I’m usually gone from 5:30-7:30 so I feel you on the long days! Hopefully today is better!

  5. Michigan weather is looking a lot like Wisconsin weather.. ugh. Is it summer yet?

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Um, no. But it’s spring. And spring is snowing. So I can only imagine what will be happening when it’s “summer.”

  6. I definitely know what you mean with TV and the computer. I do okay with the TV, but I feel like between being on the computer for work all day, and then blogging at night, I am on the computer all the time! Balance can be a difficult thing to find at times! I think right now I am realizing that I don’t have to blog every day, or always be connected to social media. It’s okay to take a break every once in a while! :)
