Today was considerably harder than yesterday. I didn’t get the best sleep last night due to Cat wandering around the house and letting loose those sad, lost meows. You know the ones.
Granted, she is thirteen and her eyesight is not what it used to be. But seriously, feline. Use the nightlights that were put out specifically for you.
Anyway, I think I might have only gotten about four hours AND I needed to be at work early today. While this is a morning where I didn’t wake up feeling nauseated, my sleep deprived brain steered me to the nearest coffee shop to help with my day. Alas, no breakfast was had.
As was to be expected after an intense workout the day before, I was STARVING by about noon. I ordered Jimmy John’s to the office since I also forgot to pack my lunch. I had the Turkey Tom and one of those AMAZING pickles (I know the sodium number is outrageous, but my love for pickles always prevails). Copious amounts of water followed.
I got home, took a quick 20 minute nap and woke up feeling energized for the gym. Also to be expected, my body felt slightly resistant to the idea of exercise. But I put in another good hour, mixing both lifting and mild cardio. Got my core, chest and back today. Arms and legs tomorrow.
Got home and devoured some leftovers from a couple of nights ago. Hummus and pita, chicken, the rest of the grapes, a little bit of cheese and a quick spinach salad. I recently started experimenting with making my own dressings again and put together lemon juice, a little white wine vinegar, a little olive oil, sage, paprika, salt, pepper, and the tiniest amount of red chili flakes. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
And then, I had the most glorious shower of my entire life. That shower where the water is the perfect temperature and warms you all the way through. I stayed in there until the water ran out. Not entirely eco-friendly, but my body appreciated it.
Tonight is reserved for reading, possibly some Stardew Valley (highly recommend, by the way). Tomorrow might be a little tricky with getting to the gym since I’ll be driving 40 minutes east to see some family. We’ll see what happens.
That’s all for today. Nighty night, kids!
