Hello Beautiful People!
Sorry this is so late, but my schedule got way off course today. On a normal day it's hard for me to get up for work. Since I've been going to the gym every night it's darn near impossible. Since I shower at night I can convince myself to sleep in an extra 20 minutes since I don't have to shower. The downfall there is that I need a shower to wake me up. So I'm pretty much dragging until lunch time.
Usually I like to get up early on Saturdays and workout. It gets me moving and then I have the rest of the day to do what I wish. Plus, when I was going to the track I wanted to make sure I got there early before they needed the field for an event.
Today I had no plans. So I opted to sleep in. I woke up around 8 and forced myself back to sleep. I woke up around noon. Oh the sleep was good. Oh how this threw off my whole day. I like my sleep, but I also felt like I had lost control of my day. Darn OCD.
The Syracuse game was on at 1. If it was a channel that the gym showed my day would have been easier. It wasn't. So I stayed home to watch. When it was over it was time to head out. I needed to run some errands first and I was hungry. Subway! First let me say that I got my rewards card. HOLLA! I'm on my way to earning a free sub. YEAH. I got my normal oven roasted chicken on whole wheat. There was one which chocolate raspberry cheesecake cookie left. It was calling my name.
I was tortured at first. I had skipped the gym last night in exchange for a Chinese dinner with friends. You just can't workout after that. It was delicious, but I felt like I had a brick in my belly all night. Amazingly, it was a great number on the scale today. So why did I have that dang cookie? Because I couldn't help it. It called my name. If I have a bad number tomorrow you will probably be able to hear my screams.
So after lunch/dinner I couldn't go straight to the gym. I didn't want to get sick. So I went to print up some pictures. I was printing up pictures from Thanksgiving. I looked good then, but I look even better now...just two months later. WOW. Go me!
Eventually I got to the gym at a little before 6. That is the time to go. It was empty...luckily Gym Crush #1 was there. Ahhh....Thank you! Once again we had a moment at the water fountain...he's so dreamy.
Focus! I got on the elliptical and pounded out 30 minutes before heading over to the leg weights. I only like to do the weights on the weekend because it's less crowded. After the weights I headed back to the cardio area and hit the treadmill for an hour.
Before I left I hit up the massage chair though. Holla! I got TWO tokens tonight. That was 10 minutes. Well worth it.
I got home around 8:30 and was flipping out. I needed a shower, but I needed to eat. And you know how I feel about eating after 8. I know it wasn't that bad because I ate later for lunch and I would most likely be up past midnight. So I showered then ate.
I did enjoy sleeping in and technically I got a lot done today, but my schedule was completely thrown off. I felt like I couldn't get anything done. So lesson learned. Get up early and get your day started! You can nap later.
PS-did you see the Polar Plunges on the news today? Mine is in a week. Rumor has it that the weather will be in the 40's and slight showers...umm...
