    Wow! Exhausting day. I don’t know how you do it.

    I hope Maggie gets out for more than 2 5 minute breaks in the new routine?

      Yes, Maddie gets walked more than that. We also let her out in the backyard to run around when we’re getting ready or at night.

    Oh, sorry if my tone was misrepresented. I didn’t expect a response. I know you are good to your pup. Just teasing!

    Setting the snooze is really simple. Go to alarm, tap on the time you have set, scroll down just a bit and turn on snooze. You have the choice of time (5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc) and the number of times it repeats. Hope that helped!

      See, I’ve seen that, but what if you want to randomly press snooze twice one day. Is there a way to do it without pre-setting it?

        When the snooze goes off you have 2 choices: 1. turn off alarm 2. hit snooze again…to me it seems simple to do half asleep!

        And SO easy to get addicted to. I’m actually trying to break my snoozing habits, so I recommend never starting 🙂

        I hit my snooze several times on my iPhone. 😉

    Oh and when the alarm goes off, slide the zzz icon. The X icon turns off the alarm.

    I’m having a hard time getting past the fact that something called “Wawa” exists. Looks like they make a mean smoothie, though!

    I also have the Samsung Galaxy SIII and HATED the first few months because all I thought was “how can this phone have everything, EVERYTHING, but a snooze?”. Felt SO DUMB when I finally found it in the settings….. (was gonna tell you how to do that, but someone else beat me to it 🙂 )

    • Meghann
      May 9, 2013

      Yes, I see that setting to create a snooze, but how do you just “snooze” without pre-setting it?

    I keep thinking about trying to get to CrossFit before work but the idea of getting up at 5 something makes me cringe! Good for you. Maybe I’ll suck it up and try soon, I do love the idea of getting my workout in before I start my day.

    I LOVE Wawa… we have a zillion up here in PA. I love Wawa’s coffee, especially the iced coffee in the summer. I’m a big fan of their hoagies too, especially the chicken salad, and anything with bacon.

    Wow, what an awesome idea for breakfast! I had been so good about eating in the morning, and seriously stopped because I was bored with my options. Totally borrowing/stealing this!

    I love getting in an early morning workout, as well.

    I’ve never been to a WaWa’s since there are none in my area and I only ever see them on road trips. I’ve heard a lot about them, though.

    I totally feel you on the jam-packed day. Even the trying to take a nap in the parking lot before going to work out. I have done that many times.

    As for the Snooze on the phone (I have the Galaxy S3 as well), you have to turn the Snooze setting to on and the next time that alarm goes off you will be given two options. An X on the left that you hold and slide to the right to turn off the alarm and Zz on the right that you slide to the left to snooze. You can set how long the snooze is for… as someone else mentioned. Snooze is set for each alarm separately. So, if you have 2 alarms, one can have snooze and one can be set to not allow snooze. Hope this helps.

    I love these kinds of posts! Sounds about the same as mine, I’m usually pretty darn happy come Friday night.

    Totally unrelated, but coming from PA where this is an intense battle of WaWa vs Sheetz, I have to say you are missing out on Sheetz 😉 So much better! lol

    Wow- that is a busy day! And a long one. I’m so impressed with anyone who does two workouts in a day- I’m proud of myself when I get one in!

    Also impressed with your turn around time in the morning- I don’t think I could get up at 5:30 and be ready to leave the house at 5:50- I move too slowly that early in the morning!

    i am legit so impressed that you manage to work out TWICE in a day while also working full time. i mean, i know you like working out but still, that is a lot of planning/commitment on your part (way more than i have)! you rock lady!!!

    ps. also, your body is proof positive of your efforts you look awesome!

    My days are pretty similar – but you get up a tad earlier – and replace some swimming and cross fit with toddler bathtime and lifting toddler up stairs over and over 😉

    I’m curious when you start to really get into Ironman training! The commitment is mind boggling to me, especially for those like yourself who have an 8-4/9-5 job

    Busy day! Getting up early really makes things so much easier, I find.

    Just curious, but do you notice you’re in better shape adding CrossFit to your workouts, or do you find it to be the same as when you’re running/strength training on your own?

      I see a major difference in my arms/back muscles. Admittedly my stomach is pretty soft right now thanks to all the sweets I’ve had lately, but my arms and back muscles still look pretty awesome.

        Interesting! I’ve been wondering about that – thanks for replying! I need to add in more strength training into my own life, and would love to do Crossfit a couple of times a week for that purpose..it’s just super pricey where I live (DC area).
