Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and feel like you've only been asleep for a few minutes? I had one of those this morning. I woke up with the feeling of sand in my eyes and soooooooo tired. Matt suggested I switch up my morning routine and get right into the shower to hopefully wake myself up. Well, it didn't work. I also tried a big mug of coffee/cocoa which helped a teensy bit...but only for a while. Anyway, I've been dragging ALL day long. No energy, no motivation. It was everything I could do to take off my comfy Adidas pants and warm sweatshirt and put on my gym shorts and tennis shoes...but I did it. Then Matt and I did Chest & Back as well as Ab Ripper X tonight before we ate dinner. It wasn't my best day ever--nutritionally speaking, but certainly not the worst.
For breakfast I had a mug of coffee/sugar free cocoa/skim milk and a bowl of Kashi Go Lean oatmeal with raisins and nuts mixed in.
For "snack" I ate a few bites of Grant's ramen noodles.
For lunch I met a girlfriend at Panera bread. I did the "Pick any 2" lunch special and had a small bowl of chicken tortilla soup with an apple and 1/2 of a chicken chipotle sandwich with water.
For "snack" I had about 8 Plum Sweets (before our work out)
For dinner we had baked tilapia with brown veggie rice, steamed broccoli and salad w/ water.
I didn't wear my HRM tonight during the work out so I'm not sure how many calories I burned. Probably not too many since it was mostly weights (no cardio).
Here's hoping that tomorrow I wake up with double-energy!!
Ps. It's 8:30 pm and I'm already in bed! yippppeee!! I'm GIDDY with delight! :) (hopefully the kids don't realize we put them to bed an hour early tonight! )
