Ok, today is apparently the day my body finally decided to scream, "Hey, fuck off!! I'm tired!!" Although, first let me share that when I weighed in this morning, I was down another 2 pounds. That's 4 pounds in 2 days, so I don't know what the hell is going on. However, things around La Casa de ChiTown have been a bit stressful lately (ok, a LOT stressful) and that probably has something to do with it. Whatever, I'll take it!
Anyway, back to my lazy body. I could NOT fall asleep last night for some reason (probably the aforementioned stress) so I was up until after midnight. Then, somehow, (and don't ask me cuz I don't know!) I managed to set the freakin' alarm on my freakin' phone to go off at 5am!! I don't even USE the alarm on my phone, so I seriously have NO clue how that happened. Well, I immediately turned it off and tried to go back to sleep, but no go. I tossed and turned for about an hour and a half before finally saying "Fuck it!" and got dressed and went to the gym.
The combination of not enough sleep (those of you who've been around a while KNOW I need my 8 hours!!) and really pushing myself lately must have been too much for this old body. My legs felt like they were trapped in quick sand. I was ready to stop at 10 minutes. Then I told myself, "At least do 15!" Then it was, "Ok, you can stop at 30, that's good." which then became 45, and finally I just did my whole 65 minutes. However, I was moving in slow motion, which you'll see in a second when I get to my numbers. I did my usual stretching after (which I've never mentioned, but I use this piece of stretching equipment, which I LOVE) but skipped all the machines. I just couldn't do it. I did NOT, however, skip my double Hydro Massage. Ahhhh...I seriously almost fell asleep during the second one. It was so hard to get up and walk out to my car.
Ok, enough babbling, here are my embarrassing numbers for today.
Yeah, yeah, I know, that's still more than I did just a week ago, but now I'm fixated with beating my own numbers every day. But, I know I also need to listen to my body when it says, "Knock it off!"
I'm still contemplating taking a little nap, then going back to do the machines I skipped. We'll see....
