This morning I woke up completely confused. Even though I only worked a half-day on Friday, I still felt in vacation mode when my alarm went off this morning. I was so out of it I even forgot to use my inhaler so I could run cute and not all “huffy-puffy I’m going to die.” Miraculously I had an AMAZING run and didn’t even need the inhaler. I flew through 3.6 miles before working on my core, which had been badly ignored this weekend. Actually, all strength training was ignored this weekend, as I was only able to squeeze in runs.
- 3.6 mile run
- 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
- 25 reverse crunches
- 1 minute plank and 2 sets of mountain climbers back to back
- 2 sets of 13 squat with overhead press, 8 lb. dumbbells
- 2 sets of 13 dumbbell rows, 8 lbs.
- 100 jumping jacks
I had a nice pile of work ready for me when I checked my email this morning, and I was psyched about that! Since I misplaced my Mary Kay concealer, I was running a few minutes late while I destroyed the entire house while looking for it. Hiding spot?… My purse.. Oh yeah, too bad I don’t remember putting it in there yesterday. As a result of being late, I didn’t have time to make the protein shake I had been craving and picturing in my head while on my morning run.
Instead, I felt extremely guilty when I had to resort to eating oatmeal I had stashed in my emergency food drawer at work. You might be thinking, “stressing over oatmeal?” Well since I’ve been trying to eat a majority Paleo, and cut out carbs, I wasn’t excited to eat it, and actually felt sick after, but it was something that had to be done.
My pre-workout snack consisted of my favorite strawberry banana Chobani yogurt topped with sunflower seeds for a nice crunch.
Time to hit the gym!.. Pants are feeling tight so this will be an AMAZING workout. Yeah buddy. (I cannot believe I just said that… Michelle’s lingo has worn off on me).
