Counting sheep does not work. I was awake for what seemed like the entire night last night. I tried counting sheep, praying, tossing, turning, everything. I woke up every 37 minutes…fact. When my alarm finally went off at 3:58 am, I thought to myself, “thank GOD I do not have to deal with this night anymore!” Not sure what my problem was.
I woke up cheery and ready to run. Beeker and I did a quick one miler (I wore 3 sweatshirts and felt like I was roasting myself to death), and then I came in and finished up my workout. I did:
Jillian Michaels 3o day shred, week one . I have the biggest girl crush on Jillian.
Pull-up and ab circuit:
15 assisted pull-ups
25 stability ball roll-outs
25 stability ball knee tucks
25 seconds of plank on stability ball
25 on each side waist bend overs (10 lbs weights)
Repeated 3 xs.
By the end I was appropriately sweaty and ready to start the day! I was almost as sweaty as I was during our trip this summer to NYC…almost.
On freezing cold days like today it is so hard to imagine it being warm outside!
It was a good first day back and did well with my meals.
Pumpkin protein oatmeal (1/2 c. old fashioned oats, 3 egg whites, banana, and a pound of cinnamon)
Hardboiled egg, necterine
Salad with loads of veggies and tuna, 2 clementines
I always pack an apple for the ride home, but when I got home I was starving. So, I snacked on trail mix and made some steamed spinach to hold me over until Beeker gets home from dinner. My challenge is to quit eating when I walk in the door. Seriously, I could stand at the cupboard, with my coat still on, and just pile in the the food! Ugh!
Vegetable chili! Can’t wait 🙂
Hopefully tonight will include a full night’s sleep and no sheep.
