Tuesday…it has been an ‘off’ day from the beginning.
I have spent the last 15 minutes looking at Pinterest on my computer, trying to motivate myself to blog. I just cannot find it tonight. The whole day has been like that. I thought it was going to be a good Tuesday this morning when I woke up, but something threw it off. There are two causes for my unusual mood (I’ll keep those to myself), but I hope my mind-set is different when I wake up tomorrow morning.
My breakfast today ~
THRIVE Shake for Breakfast before taking Power Vinyasa Yoga (this was the highlight of my Tuesday – my mood seemed to improve during this hour long workout).
Sweet Tater + Pistachios (about 1 serving)
Afternoon snack ~
thinkThin bar (I needed some protein!)
As the weather worsened, I had to decide if I was going to head on home or stay at the Y for a workout after finishing up with work. Classes and my New Year, New You program were cancelled due to the weather. But, I still wanted to get a workout in since I was already at the Y. I thought perhaps it would help my mood. I closed up shop at my desk around 5 and decided to do some CX.
A friend who normally attends my CX classes in the evening arrived at the Y just in time to join me. We did CX 13 together. Since running was out for me today (my ankle needed a rest), I opted for 20 minutes on the Lateral Elliptical after the CX workout. The workout improved my mood a bit, but once I left the Y & began my time-consuming trek home, the sadness (?) returned.
I am NOT telling you about my crappy day in order to earn a pity party. Heck no! ~ I am only writing about it to show you that everyone has BAD days… myself included. Anyone who visits the Y sees me as the energetic, high-spirited, positive Y gal ~ most days I am exactly that. Today, I would say I wore the ‘mask’ of that gal. On the inside, it was a horrible day. Praying tomorrow I will be back to myself – I like the positive KT better.
Evening eats ~
Started with a Banana
Chicken Noodle Soup
Salad (packed for Y, but got to eat it at home)
1/2 PB + Honey on Whole Grain Sandwich Thin
Powerballs (too many!! — This would be an instance where I took my mood out on food. ugh)
Well, I am off to do some thinking about how I would like to renovate the living space if I end up taking it over. It needs some major improvements. Paint…it does a room wonders. And new flooring. That would be the starting point.
Tomorrow morning = TREADMILL TIME. I cannot WAIT for it to get here. I will likely be running in my basement, since I am pretty certain I will be snowed in. My ankle better be well rested and ready for some pounding, because I am ready for a sweaty, long run.
Until next time ~
