So needless to say I have been one exhausted puppy today; add to that a larger than normal work load and a headache and I've had a pretty interesting day. But let's start first with breakfast! I've been trying to eat breakfast, which I haven't always done, and if I do it isn't necessarily the healthiest things. Today's breakfast was some Greek yogurt mixed with two spoonfuls of Jell-O pudding mix. I also tossed in some cheerios for a little something extra. Don't laugh til you try it!!

The rest of the work day passed in a blur-we were so busy! Regardless of my ailments, I still went to the gym to complete today's workout according to the training plan. It's hard, isn't it, to motivate yourself to do the workout you have planned after a tough day? The last few weeks I've been looking forward to going, but I didn't have that enthusiasm today. I had to keep telling myself I would feel horrible if I missed and luckily today's workout was just thirty minutes of cross training. So, off to the gym we went-me to the elliptical and the hubby chose the stair stepper and stationary bike. I must say I was awfully darn happy when we left-even if I was glad we went. :)
Now it is time for me to unwind, maybe read a little of the book I borrowed from a co-worker (six months ago!) and then go to bed! Yes it is only 6:45pm, and no I don't plan on reading for more than 30 minutes. I'm really just an 80 year old, trapped in the body of a 29 year old wanna be runner. But hey-they say you need rest for muscle recovery. If that is the case, with how much I love sleep you'd think my muscles just recover instantly!
How do you motivate yourself to workout after a rough day?
What time do you go to bed?
