Wow. Did you ever have one of those days where you just feel like your whole body is tired, sore, and you can’t possibly fathom doing anything except for lying down? Oh boy. I hope I’m not getting sick!
When Joe woke me up at 7:15 this morning, I could barely open my eyes and I immediately felt the serious DOMS from yesterday’s one legged dead lifts. I pried my eyes open, hopped out of bed, and changed into my gym clothes. When we got there, I spent about 15 minutes stretching and trying to wake up.
I also sat down and played on my iPhone for a bit, hoping that time itself would help me wake up, but no such luck. I even had a shot of Fitmixer, which usually gets my body moving, but I felt nothing!
Eventually, I busted out a super low intensity upper body lifting session. I used a bit heavier weights with lower reps so that there wasn’t as much cardio involved.
Please note the “strip tease” class poster behind me. My gym, folks, my gym.
Anyway, my workout was not anything to write home about but I was glad I got up and moving (and stretching!) a bit.
For breakfast, I was oddly not in the mood for anything but cereal. I mean, I’m always in the mood for cereal, but usually I’m always in the mood for everything else, too.
Kashi GoLean, almond milk, bananas, and strawberries sufficed.
After a shower, coffee, responding to some e-mails, and blog work, I made lunch.
I heated up the last of the grilled veggies, made an arugula salad with truffle oil and lemon, and sprinkled on parmesan for extra flavor. On the side, I had a rice cake topped with leftover tuna salad and hummus. Nothing too exciting; the theme of the day I guess.
I tried to study but literally felt my eyes closing. I don’t know why my whole body feels so tired! I definitely forced myself to get up early a few days this week in order to be more productive. I’d love to let myself wake up naturally but I know that won’t go over well. I’ll be in bed until 10am! Anyway, it’s basically the end of the week for me, as my “weekends” are normally Sunday & Monday, so maybe it’s just the whole week getting to me. Who knows!? Either way, I am letting myself sleep in tomorrow!
Sorry for the downer post; I wish I had some motivation for you and myself.
I’m glad you are all excited about The Simply Bar giveaway! A lot of you expressed interest in trying them out. If you’re really antsy and can’t wait, you can always purchase some online. I highly recommend!
