The past few days I’ve been feeling off. My body was fighting off a stomach bug and I just felt sluggish and out of my element.
This morning was the first day I woke up and felt almost normal. I got the kids breakfast, bundled up and headed to the gym.
When I got back I had a smile from ear to ear.
We started a new weight training cycle and I’m excited about it. Since the new year I’ve been keeping a journal and really tracking my progress. I know I’ve come a long way in the past year but I haven’t really been keeping notes and honestly, I’m really getting into it. I feel so strong and athletic.
Besides my renewed motivation at the gym, I kept my food journal today — click here to see it. I’m giving a little more thought to my pre- and post-workout food choices. I used to go on an empty stomach and then not eat for an hour or two afterward. It wasn’t my way of trying to lose weight or anything, I just didn’t give it much thought and, frankly, I’m busy in the morning.
Now I’m curious to see if my food choices and more systematic approach affect my performance at the gym.
OMG, did I just say that? WHO AM I?
I really am feeling motivated and ready to tackle the world.
That being said I feel SO far behind in other areas of my life. My house is a mess, my inbox is overflowing, and I have all these little nagging errands to run. The kids finally went back to school today after a couple of snow days. Speaking of, my #2014RunSteak is going strong even with the frigid temperatures.
I can only hack a mile because it’s miserable out there but I’m doing it!
Told you. Motivated. :)
Right now I’m battling the I’m-tired-the-kids-are-finally-in-bed-I-deserve-a-snack munchies even though I’m not hungry. My solution? I’m going to bed.
