I woke up nicely at 5 am, did my routine…planned that night’s yoga class, did TurboFire abs. One thing that always bothers me about ab workouts is that I can’t do the roll ups. There’s just something about the way I’m built (or some still, unaddressed muscle weakness) that prevents me from doing that, and it’s frustrating. I need to ask my new chiropractor/massage guy about fixing that. It would be a real accomplishment. But I digress…. I also got a survey out about my web site to help me redesign it better, and posted another day of this blog. Yay for productivity! And I wasn’t tired. I had a full day at work but hoped to relax and watch the Samsara movie in the evening as my reward.
My lunch didn’t feel particularly fulfilling–but I think that’s because I like having the protein at lunch rather than at dinner, which is what I had been doing the last few days. This day I went back to the rice/veggies-only lunch. And I had my morning broth snack with lunch because I hadn’t been hungry for it earlier (and had no time to get it, to be honest).
At 2 pm I headed for a gym break and I didn’t last very long–I started having hypoglycemic symptoms, no! Shaky, dizzy. I haven’t felt those in a LONG time. I came back and slammed down a protein shake and seriously considered downing my dinner at 3 pm. I only got halfway through my elliptical workout I think, something like 260 calories when normally it’s 400.
I did end up eating dinner early, then teaching a private yoga session that totally energized me when I was feeling kind of tired. A trip to Whole Foods for more broth and veggies afterwards. I thought to myself, “I hate the chicken, I just do”. I can’t eat chicken. It’s SO blah to me. Forever it’s been that way, no matter what I do to it. So fish it is for next week, yay! I can eat fish every day and not get tired of it. Between that and loving heat and humidity I really think I was born in the wrong climate or had some interesting previous life history.
I was wiped when I got home but started working on some stuff anyway instead of watching the movie. It was partly because I also realized I’d not have enough time before bed to fit it in. Got to bed at 10 pm but couldn’t get warm, so I futzed around until I had enough layers on.
