I haven’t been sleeping very well lastly. Two nights ago I woke up with a horrible headache at 1AM. I’ve got a crick in my neck that I can’t seem to shake and Matt gave me a massage before bed and really worked what I think is a knot near my shoulder blade and I think that triggered the headache. (When that area gets massaged I can turn my neck over my left shoulder farther). Then last night I couldn’t get comfortable in general! I think it’s because I went to sleep without an eye mask on and when I woke up at 1AM (again) I put it on and slept well for the rest of the night.
I was up at 5:30 this morning to get in one last morning workout before I start a few months of afternoon/evening workouts. While getting up early to workout is hard, I think going after work is even harder. But I’m secretly looking forward to not having to go to the gym while I’m still half asleep 🙂 And I think evening workouts will give me a bit more flexibility, especially to meet my friends.
Before I left I had PB&J. I used to be able to go straight to the gym without a snack, but I’m out of the habit and wake up hungrier than I used to. I think the thought of this toast is what got me out of bed!
At the gym: 45 minutes of ellipticalling followed by 10 of abs and pushups. I hadn’t been that early in so long that I had at least 3 of my old friends (who I used to just say hi to!) say hello and ask me what’s going on. I had to tell them that this was a one-day early AM and I’d be gone for a few more months at least!
Finally got in that smoothie!!!
- 3/4 of a frozen banana (the other 1/4 was sorely missed 🙁 )
- 1 cup milk
- 2 big handfuls spinach
- Half a packet of Chocolate Amazing Meal
- 1/4 cup raw rolled oats (<— trying to give it more carbs to keep me full longer? If I don’t have carbs at breakfast, it doesn’t hold me over very long, so I added the oats to bulk it up a bit in glucose and soluble fiber)
- Topped with Mix My Granola!
Because I didn’t have a whole banana, it was on the thinner side and I had to whip out a straw (and hence the glass instead of a bowl).
They have coffee + tea at Winthrop, so I’m going to have a warm beverage when I arrive! Bringing my reusable mug.
Lunch at EarthFare!!!!!!!!!! So excited. This might be my last EarthFare lunch in 6 months since I won’t be near one on my job sites. I should be able to pop in for an iPhone post today 🙂
18* and headed out the door!
