Holy moly…long morning/afternoon of work! How’s everyone doin’ today?
I just got back home from my work shift that started this morning around 6:30. Typically, I really don’t mind getting up early but today I was exhausted. I stalled way too long going to bed last night and just felt totally unrested. Boooo.
I did my best to get through my 7:00am Tabata class but I was definitely not as amped up as I usually am. After class, I got to work on my own workout for the day, which called for a full body superset workout. All I can say is thank goodness today did not include any cardio. Not only was I pooped, but my legs are SO sore, my ankles are actually in a little bit of pain, and I probably would have just went sailing right off the back of a treadmill today.
Luckily, the above did not need to happen and I got though my superset workout fairly well…I think. Once my workout was done, it was time for some breakfast, which came right after a quick iced coffee run down the road to Starbucks. I told myself that the coffee was “absolutely necessary” today…like the caffeine has any sort of effect on me. Nope, no effect.
But it did taste fantastic! Unsweetened, 2 pumps sugar-free vanilla syrup + skim milk. Yummers.
Along with my iced coffee, I enjoyed a little variety for breakfast. This is what you call the “oh crap, it’s 5:45am and I forgot to put together anything for breakfast today” combo.
A little while later, while in between sessions, I snacked on some cinnamon roast almonds – 15 to be exact. Because if I left the container open, I can guarantee that the whole thing would have disappeared in no time.
Unfortunately, that was the only food I had packed up with me today, and I still had another Tabata class and a training session left in the day. I didn’t get out of there until about 2:00pm so, needless to say, I was quite ravenous by the time I got home.
I immediately inhaled a piece of leftover pizza from the fridge and some baby carrots. Then, I made a snack of 2 Wasa crackers topped with a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, strawberry slices, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
This is probably one of my favorite sweet + savory snacks. It’s SO good!
Now, as I’m finishing up this post, I realize that I am sounding like quite a peach today. Yikes…sorry folks. I do try to keep it positive, but sometimes it just happens. I actually had a really awesome day, but I think I really just need to squeeze in a nap or something to recharge the batteries, ya know?
So here’s my plan…it’s about 75 degrees out right now. I’m gonna go grab a blanket and my pillow, and head outside for a little nap in the shade. Does that not sound great right now or what?
