I got home from work last night and was totally beat. Adam had taken the day off and had edged the border of one of our gardens with paving stones. It looked really great. I stayed outside chatting with him before I headed inside to change, clean up the kitchen and just collapse on the couch.
We were going to have salmon burgersbut I seriously wasn’t in the mood. My stomach had been bothering me all day so we decided to make some good old macaroni and cheese… from the box! This is one favorite meal that I will never be able to give up. I just love it too much. I almost always have a box or two lying around for times like this. I can’t say that last night’s meal was too nutritious as I actually don’t think I even had a vegetable. I did have an apple after the macaroni and cheese but nope… not veggies!
I ended up in bed at exactly 9 pm which must have been exactly what I needed as I woke up exactly on time this morning (as opposed to 20 minutes early like normal) and without any tummy problems!
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do this morning on the Arc Trainer and when I first got on it, my legs felt a bit like lead. So I ended up making up a new workout as I went and worked up to harder resistance at the end of the workout.
The only downside of this workout was that I spent 20 minutes at each resistance. I had the TV on and I just wasn’t into it so I had to cover the display on the Arc Trainer with a towel to help me concentrate vs. dwelling on the amount of time left. I was also able to get in 30 minutes of strength training before I hauled myself down to the train station for the daily commute. I didn’t realize until I checked my email on the train that today is Friday the 13th! I used to be a big believer that bad stuff happened on Friday the 13ths… I am not so sure of this anymore – how can a Friday be bad? It is the start to a weekend and the end of a week! What do you think?
