So Tired....

I think I jinxed our good fortune of a mild summer. We all have been enjoying the warm, sometimes hot, days but it would cool down to somewhere in the 60's at night. I guess someone is sitting there laughing at me because it was like the face of the sun inside my house last night. I was roasting in my own bed, trying to fall asleep without any success. Once we finally turned on the air it was much better!

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!!

One of the best things about this breakfast is there is no prep work the night before! It is also nice that I can just mix it together at my desk when I get to work. It tricks my brain into thinking I'm eating dessert at six in the morning.

All mixed in and ready to eat!!

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?

  1. The more I work out the more dessert I can eat! That's my motivation.
