Morning & Motion

Posted on Updated on


Yesterday was nice and restorative. After some gentle yoga and doing stuff around the apartment, my mom and I had a lunch date at my current favorite sushi place. We both went with the $12 salmon teriyaki lunch special—so good. IMG_1431

It was really nice to catch up. Between her crazy work schedule and my ever-changing one, it’s hard to find the time, so it was much overdue. We’d talked about getting pedicures, but I wasn’t really up to it, so we wandered into a drug store to pick up a couple random things and had fun taking pictures of things with funny labels.

Like this:

The line breaks on this one seemed really awkward to me, though: IMG_1432

“Sickness band” just doesn’t sound good, though “morning & motion” is kind of neat. Actually, I take that back—it sounds like the name of a blog about a.m. exercise and/or morning sex. Maybe a blog where one compares calories burned by various forms of morning, um, motion. Hm. Maybe I should write that. Or not. I’d never want to encourage someone to have morning sex with a person they don’t really want to have morning sex with just because it will burn more calories than getting dressed and hailing a cab.

Disclaimer: I just took some DayQuil.

Do you like sushi? Exercise vs morning sex—thoughts?

    lolol. I have sushi cravings about once a year, and I enjoy honoring those, but they’re so rare. I’m kind of addicted to my AM workouts, but I’ve often been able to think about morning sex as my “warm-up.”

    Also, I think that label kind of implies “morning sickness” the way the words jump out at you. Which just ruins the desire for sex, amirite?

      Haha “warm-up”—love that! And you’re so right. That label is basically birth control in and of itself .

    Hahahaha, I swear your Sunday posts are the best way to start off the day. I definitely think you have to choose between morning sex and morning workouts, they cannot both happen, that is just asking TOO much of your body!

      Haha that is certainly asking a lot. Guess it depends on, the, ahem, intensity of each activity.
