I am sore. Holy group power and spin class. Literally every muscle in my legs, butt, abs and arms are sore. Every. Last. One. Sitting down to pee is quite the challenge.
I sucked on Wednesday and skipped working out. My alarm went off at 4:45am and laid in bed for a minute thinking about how exhausted I was from getting my body re-adjusted to morning workouts and late-into-the-night classes after working all day. I would have been completely fine but I had accounting last night and would have never survived. I’ve been having a minor panic attack about the midterm exam that is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I wanted to be 100% focused in class and gave myself a pass. I’m hoping I can wake up early Saturday and Sunday to keep it going so that next week isn’t too much of a shock for me when my alarm goes off!
I did manage to get up yesterday at the crack of dawn to hit up group power.
I spared you my 5am face in that first picture. You’re welcome.
I tried so hard to be awesome like the instructor I was telling you about yesterday but because of my weak muscles and how sore I was I used about 1/16 of the weight that she did. I’ll get there though!!
Waking up early and working out right away gets my metabolism going like no other. I had my usual protein shake after class while I was getting ready, which usually holds me off until around 10am ‘snack time’, but I got into work and my stomach was already growling. I devoured a packet of oatmeal in about 2 bites.
This gluten free Chex oatmeal is the best! I’m pretty sure it’s all sugar, but I don’t even care. It tastes amazing and I don’t eat it every day, so when I do I enjoy my day-long sugar high.
If you’re looking for another amazing snack you have to try this popcorn asap!
It’s delicious and the ingredient list is pretty darn impressive considering. As a warning it is the most addicting thing I’ve had in a long time!
I also did the worst thing ever and decided to listen to my running playlist while I was working.
Now all I can think about is getting out there for a run! Especially since I need to let my body slowly adjust to the weather so I can extend my outdoor runs as long as possible. The thought of running on a treadmill makes me want to cry. I am promising myself I won’t run at least another week. But starting 10/12 it’s fair game as long as I ease myself back into it slowly. 🙂
I got home from work and decided to foam roll my legs in an attempt to relieve some of the muscle pain. Unfortunately, someone had another idea. Apparently cats think foam rollers are toys…
It’s Friday and the weekend is almost here! I’ve got a weekend long study date with Bear. Good thing it’s going to be rainy and stormy here in Holland. 🙂
