I woke up and went to the gym today like I have every other day this week, but today I was just not feeling it. I couldn't get motivated to do anything. I walked for about 20 minutes and just left. My heart was not in it. Part of my problem today was the fact that I am sore!!!!! So sore! My legs feel like I have taken stabs to my quads. They are sore to bend and keep straight. They hurt when I just sit still.
After I drove to the gym (I just cant call that a workout) I went for a little afternoon swim. It was really nice to get some sun on my skin. It also led to a little bit of a sunburn on my skin. Nothing too bad but sunburn none the less. Now I have yellow hair and red skin, not a good combination.
I went to lunch today and did not do a good job with my food choices. I ate some French Fries. I even decided to cheat and have ice cream but karma was good to me and I bought a kind that I have been wanting to try and it was not good! So I threw it away with no guilt.
I had to let the bad food choice go and just get on with my day. No punishment, just had to make good decisions for the rest of the day. You know there are 2 choices when you do bad:
1. Eat bad for the rest of the day because you already ruined it
2. Eat nothing for the rest of the day to punish yourself.
I opted for option #3, so I just ate my regular diet like normal. I did however go back to the gym to try to reverse the French Fry damage. I ended up getting in a really good workout tonight, 5k in 38 minutes on the elliptical. It usually takes me a lot longer to do that distance but I was booking it tonight.
Once I got home I had a small dinner, did the shower and shave and then started operation beautification. I borrowed some purple shampoo from my sister to help with the yellow hair, and it really helped with the color until I get to buy some toner tomorrow. Then I clipped my toe nails and fingernails, moisturized my hair and my skin (sunburn you know) and even clipped my cuticles. Operation beautification complete!!! Well 90% complete, there is still the issue of the hair, which will hopefully be fixed tomorrow.
Now I'm finishing up my night with a few more bottles of water before I hit the bed. Another day tomorrow with 2 workouts and I get to do weights tomorrow, that should be really fun on the sore legs!!!!!
