When I woke up this morning I sent this tweet:
And then after a little research I found this:
I’m not crazy! A little after 3 am I was woken up by what felt like my bed slightly shaking. It wasn’t anything drastic though so I kind of figured it was in my head and went back to sleep. Turns out there really was an earthquake about 50 miles southwest of the city and people could feel it as far away as Alabama. Fortunately there were no injuries and there is no damage – many people weren’t even aware it happened. I’m just hoping this isn’t a precursor to something worse coming on the fault line that runs through Missouri.
We have record breaking heat, tornadoes, flooding, and swarming cicadas…the last thing we need is a terrible earthquake.
When my alarm woke me up this morning I bounded out of bed to head to spin class. I was feeling pretty good this morning and really pushed it on my sprints. After class I completed the New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women workout 1B (review coming this afternoon!!) and then spent my 15 minutes of spare time casually on the elliptical.
What’s white and black and coral all over…? Bad joke. Just wanted to wear this scarf from Old Navy.
On the way to work I popped into Starbucks to purchase my latest obsession: Iced Decaf Americano. I used up my last gift card today so this little habit is going to get expensive quickly. I need to figure out if I can brew iced coffee and keep it at work…
My breakfast at work was oatmeal beefed up with chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, and half a banana. TJ’s Valencia Peanut Butter on top. I’m almost out of this jar…can’t wait for overnight oats!
Talk to you later!
