Hello friends! Sorry for the brief hiatus in blog posts. Rose and I have both had a lot going on.
Anyway, last week was my birthday! I enjoyed some cake, beer, and a cheeseburger. It was delightful. My stomach wasn’t very happy the day after, but we got back on the healthy eats wagon a few days later and all is well.
I took Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday off from working out last week.
Positive: The rest made me able to do some intense working out. Saturday, I biked approximately 16 miles, did an hour and a half of yoga, and pushed my bike up a pretty intense hill. (I promise to better document these adventures in the future). I also ate really clean!
I also ran to 3 miles Sunday, even though my legs were feeling tired. I love Sunday runs.
The not so positive, is that it is hard to get back into the swing of things and into a routine. I have plans almost each night this week after work. My usually tactic is to change into workout clothes immediately, and just get it done. That may not work this week, and that is stressing me out.
Now that its Thursday, I can report that things have been going pretty well. I changed into workout clothes right away Tuesday and Wednesday, and fit in some quick and efficient workouts before the evening got away from me.
It’s all about balance. I’ve been able to leave work at reasonable hours all of this week, or else this wouldn’t have happened. I’m grateful that the little bit of work I’ve had to complete after hours has been able to get done post workout.
This morning at work, someone asked me what I did last night. They knew I was exhausted yesterday, so when I mentioned I ran a few miles last night, they said, “Wow! That’s great that you fit that in”. I responded, “The thing is, I never WANT to work out. But I FEEL so much better after. It keeps me sane.”
I surprised my self a little.
