I worked out 3 days this week. They weren’t the days that I had originally planned to work out, and I didn’t get in as much cardio as a planned due to the fact that I broke my stationary bike and I’m having IT band problems, but I still got 3 workouts in. So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice. (Hopefully someone gets that Caddyshack reference.)
I also managed to restrict my treats to the weekend, and, yes, I also managed to limit how much I consumed. I’m happy about that, but not so happy about my veggie intake, which was less than ideal. Oh, I had my 4 servings most days, but I fell short probably 3 days this week. Part of it is that my husband hasn’t been getting to the grocery store (I meal plan, he shops), but I can’t really blame him – his work schedule has been especially hectic, and he’s still done a ton of laundry, cleaned out part of the basement, taken the kids to hockey, shuttled them to and from school, and worked. Yes, he’s awesome. No, you can’t have him.
The other factor impairing my vegetable intake is that when I get stressed, I sometimes find veggies just aren’t appealing. Doesn’t seem to matter what I do to them; some days, I just have to choke them down. This is where something like V8 comes in handy. It may not have as much fibre as a whole vegetable, but at least you can chug it back quickly. Guess it’s time to stock up!
A few of my classmates have been complaining of stomach troubles lately. I’m not sure if I’m just paranoid, but I’m not feeling so hot tonight. The question now is do I set my alarm for 5:30am in hopes that I’m feeling well and can make it to 6am spin tomorrow, or do I set it for 7am, getting the extra sleep and hopefully fending off a potentially nasty virus? I’ll let you know what I decide, but I’m not gonna lie and tell you that I’m all jacked about getting up at 5:30. It’s cold. It’s dark. And I’m always, ALWAYS tired – yes, even after my workout, I feel like I could crawl back into bed for a few quick zzzz’s.
This week’s agenda:
Monday – spin
Tuesday – workout with my trainer
Friday – run and core
Signing off for the night. It’ll be a rockin’ week of studying, working out, and, well, life.
Any suggestions for awesome vegetables that I might actually want to eat? Raw isn’t really doing it for me at all, and neither are plain cooked ones.
