I was doing so WELL. I was tossing kettle bells around like crazy. 50 lbs? Pffft piece of cake. Bench press? No problem. Hop on the treadmill: easy peasy lemon squeezy. Joking around with a friend and feel (and hear) a pop in my neck and OH MY GAWD what just happened?!?!?! Yup. That happened. I’m not proud about it. At all. And now I have that wonderfully tight catch in my neck and down the left side underneath my shoulder blade. Fantastic. And it’s Easter weekend so I can’t get to anyone to do much about it. At least I forget about it most of the time. And then….YIKES.
This isn’t a workout shirt, it’s just a shirt to wear around. A lot of people look at me like I’m crazy but a lot of people come in for the hugs. I think this is one of my favourite shirts ever.
Oh and the workouts that I did actually do? How’s this for sad: I forgot to keep track. I know there was some elliptical and some treadmill and some weights and that’s about it. Truthfully, I’ve been so busy and having so much trouble getting a good sleep that my brain is fried most days. I wish I knew why but for some reason my mind just does not shut down and I’m exhausted and running on fumes which makes it even worse. I have a feeling that part of it is because I’ve been less than diligent with my nutrition and am most likely lacking on quite a few nutrients.
I have a few days off coming up soon that I’m turning into something of a reset period to get everything back on track. And if that doesn’t work, I have a vacation coming up in a few weeks that I have been looking forward to for-ev-er so that should help.
As you’ve no doubt guessed, there isn’t really much food wise. Breakfast has been either my standard scrambled egg/egg whites with english muffin or hemp cereal with Greek yogurt and almond milk with a sliced banana. Everything else is something of a crapshoot. Oh and lots of coffee.
Although, I did have a wonderful barbecue meal at Wenona Craft Beer Lodge the other night with some friends. I split the Pitmasters for Two with a friend. That’s five pounds of a variety of meat, two hushpuppies each, a buttery biscuit, and coleslaw. It was a pig out (get it). I just wanted a nap after.
