Opposite Day

22 Sep

This morning, Ed and I were definitely on an opposite schedule.  At 6:20 AM, I get a whisper in my ear saying “I’m going out to run.”  I was not even the smallest bit motivated to even try this morning.  I was beat.  So, he left while I slept.  When he returns around 7:45 AM, he showered crawled back into bed and I left to push myself to do, well, something.

I wasn’t in the best mood for a workout this morning, so I started on the treadmill and it turned out to be a pretty good sweat.

When I got home, I did about 10 minutes worth of abs before showering and making breakfast.

Ed opted for the fruit and cereal route while I made two scrambled eggs filled with mushrooms, parsley and garlic powder, half a toasted whole wheat bagel with Munster cheese melted on top and a glass of orange juice.

Ed is currently out running errands, while I opted to stay in this morning and clean the place and bag our Goodwill items to take this afternoon.

I wonder how many more opposite tasks we can manage today?

Do you consider you and your partner pretty “one in the same” or  the typical “opposites attract” love story?

I think Ed and I are usually on the same wave length.  The reason we started hanging out was because we were the only people we knew that loved real sushi.  So, we started visiting local sushi places together which escalated into much more similar interests.  We are definitely opposite in the sleeping routine though.  The man can seriously function on 3 hours of sleep daily.  I can’t.  7-8 hours…minimum.

P.S. I added a Healthy Snacks page to my Recipes page.  Check out last night’s salty treat!

    Good job getting up and working out! I wouldn’t say we are opposites, but I voluntarily wake up early to workout while he has to wake up early just to go to work. After work and on the weekends we are both in relaxation mode though!

      I can relate to that. My husband’s schedule for work changes weekly, while I have to be on the road by 6:15 AM to get to work by 7AM. At that hour, we don’t work out in the morning together often 🙂

    It is almost scary how alike my husband and I are!

    Opposites attract in this relationship for sure! She’s a morning person, me not so much… to say the least!

      Oh, how I would love to be a “morning person” who gets up with no difficultly. The say seems so much more complete to me when I can manage an early morning start.

        Yeah no kidding! Getting up is a painful process for me! 🙂 For me it doesn’t necessarily matter what time I wake up, I just have to wake up on my own. If I wake up to an alarm, bad. Wake up on my own and it’s early? I’ll be fine!
