Good morning and happy Tuesday! How are you today? Did you sleep well? I got home around 12:30 last night and collapsed into bed, snuggled up against the (clean) laundry. Whoops!
Yesterday I felt like something different so I made a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I had Puffins, GoLean, and a banana with skim.
I worked all morning, and snacked on frozen berries and bee pollen.
By the time I finished my reading it was, as I’d suspected, to late to go to yoga. I decided to go for a run instead, which was a big mistake. From Step 1, my body felt heavy, my legs clunky. My stomach started to growl, and new stitches kept popping up all over my front. My shoulders hurt. My body just did not want to run. I should have listened to it and turned back immediately, but I didn’t want to “fail” so I kept pushing through. I stopped a couple times: first for traffic, then to fix my headband, then to fix a stitch. You get the picture. It was not a good run. Finally, I got so frustrated and annoyed that I just turned off my watch and walked the rest of the way home… I was already only two blocks away from home (on the way back), so I ended up running 4 out of the 4.4 miles I’d set out to do. Oh well. Moral of the story? Just as not all meals can be great, neither can all runs. It doesn’t mean I’m a failure, or not a “real” runner, or anything else that sounds completely catastrophic. It just worries me because it’s about time to start increasing my mileage; I’m still planning to do that on Thursday. We’ll see.
I came home famished. I rooted around in the fridge, and found half a jalepeño.
I chopped it up and added it to my Sunday leftovers, and topped it all with asiago cheese. It was a huge meal, but I wanted something big to get me through my wait shift.
On my way out the door, I grabbed some grapes and ate them on the subway.
I really like this PURE flavor… I reviewed it once before and I think I liked it even better this time. Nom.
Work was fine… we got a little busy and we were two instead of three on the floor, so we made a little more money. Dinner, however, is what made the night worth it. There was a mistake in the kitchen, so there was a piece of lightly grilled salmon under my salad! The rest of the salad was mixed greens, beets, tomato, a sliver of avocado, and walnuts. It was so good. I really don’t think I could have made a better meal at home… this was just what I wanted.
I’d planned on having dessert when I got home, but I was too tired. Instead, I slathered up my legs with Bengay and got into bed. Um, not the best idea. I love how Bengay feels, but that icy hot goodness kept me awake! Whoops.
Off to my internship. Have a great day!
