I hate the cold. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that before. I actually just hate being cold, so getting out from under my covers to workout this morning was prettttttttttttty miz. It almost didn’t happen, but then Derby meowed until I got up. Good motivation there.
I did a 35 minute cardio interval workout on On Demand this morning in my living room, wishing I had smaller than 8 lb weights. My shoulders were burning. On fire. And yes, there were a few times where I had to stop. Don’t judge. I’ve always said I’m weak so that’s not anything new.
This afternoon I made it to the gym where I got to run my super mile. There were like 4 people waiting for treadmills at 5:00….and again, lots of really dressed up girls. Yuck. So, instead of fighting the cougars for cardio machines, I headed up to my favorite cycle class ever (okay, the only one I’ve made it all the way through), and shockingly, it wasn’t full. Don’t tell anyone. I want it to stay this way! I really tried to push myself today and was as sweaty as Mary Catherine Gallagher on a bad day.
Needless to say I am tired this evening and already ready to go to bed. I think I’ll go crazy and sleep in until 7 tomorrow morning…woah!
Tomorrow afternoon I’ve got PT again, and boy is ol Al going to be proud. I’ve foam rolled everyday (it’s not gotten any easier fyi.. I grit my teeth every time) and I’ve done all my exercises until they burn. I’m just hoping he doesn’t increase my 2 minutes of foam rolling. Maybe I can sweet talk him with some of my great stories.
Oh, in other news… Today I opened my desk drawer and to my surprise, look what I found:
My willpower took a vacation and I opened the cane full of Reese’s Pieces. I only had a few. Whoops. (PiC: bottom right drawer is a treasure chest of good candy. DO NOT open if you know what’s good for you.)
So- except for the few Reese’s, my ‘no carb’ thing has gone well. Lots of fruits and veggies and proteins (staying away from bread and pasta)… Does anyone have a good breakfast idea besides scrambled eggs? I need something good and tasty.
Happy Wednesday! Only 2 more days left of work!
