I feel good today. I feel encouraged that I'm back in my routine and ready to get my life back to normal.
However, I did not feel so hot last night. I promised myself that I'd go to the gym yesterday after work. Now rewind with me a bit. I usually bring lunch, but yesterday I wasn't feeling anything in the fridge, so I went out to pick something up. I got a soup and half sandwich from panera with baked chips. Lunch was fine, however I always get hungry around 3pm and need a snack. I had finished up everything in my snack drawer and didn't think to buy anything so I was SOL. So I drank my water.
My energy level kind of fell but I kept going. I got to the gym, attempted to run. Fail. Tried the arc trainer and started out OK, but my energy faded and I could hear my stomach growling. Squeezed in a bunch of strength stuff, which wasn't so bad, but as soon as I stopped I felt like I could have lay down on the floor and napped.
Moral of the story? You must eat enough to be able to work out. Without a doubt I could feel that my body was not performing well because it was hungry. So of course I fixed that when I got home.
Don Juan to the rescue! He cooked up some mahi mahi fish tacos and I enjoyed those and overdosed on guac. So good! I should probably start taking pictures of his concoctions.
So even though my workout was just eh, I feel it today and am encouraged. Hopefully I brought enough food to fuel me at boxing tonight. I haven't been in over a month and am ready to take out some frustrations on the bag. Bring it!
What's in your workout future?
