Exhausted!

I am beyond exhausted. Yesterday was a great workout day and today I am paying for it. I fought my alarm clock this morning but I got up and went to the gym. I had PUMP first thing but I was struggling. In PUMP we do a different muscle group for every song….warm up, squats, chest, etc. There are 9 total including the warm up and cool down and today I made it to song 3 before I was cashed out. The teacher kept saying, “this one is easier so go heavier than normal” fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice and trice and even 4 times shame on me. After the biceps track I no longer believe anything she says ever again…ever!!!

Before the cool down song I threatened to quit and never come back but I had made it this far so I might as well finish, right?!?! I still don’t know if that was the right decision, I should have just laid on my yoga mat and slept the rest of the class away.

After my class I did go out to the gym floor and try to get a bit more cardio. I got 2000 meters rowing and 20 minutes of running/jogging. After the run I surrendered and went to get ready for work. I struggled through every single step but still did the full workout, just not with the intensity that I normally do.

I made it to work a little early today which worked out good cause I had lots of work to do. I have had a slight change in position and Im still adjusting and learning my new position so I am a little more stressed than normal. I am so grateful to have a job and happy to be busy, Im just ready to get in a groove of the new responsibilities.

After work I really wanted to get in another workout but my body really was tired. I kept thinking about skipping it but I know tomorrow I will only get one so I needed two today. Instead of doing a traditional workout at the gym I decided to take it outside and do something that needed doing. I took my car to the car wash and got all the berry tree poop off my car. I had some serious scrubbing to do and I got all the berries off so now I need a real car wash with wax to make her look all pretty. It took me about half an hour to get it done and I worked up a good sweat doing it so Ill take it.

After the car wash there was still a tiny bit of guilt for not actually working out I strapped on my running shoes and took a 20 minute jog. I only had 20 minutes until choir practice so I took off, no measuring time or distance, just 0 minutes of running with my headphones on, no stress nothing. It was AMAZING! Sometimes its nice to not be so goal oriented and just burn some calories.

Now I am hitting the bed. Im thinking after a good nights sleep and a late wakeup call tomorrow I might be more upbeat. The fact that tomorrow has one workout and an annual meeting that is fun year after year puts a smile on my face just a bit! Night all!
