I feel like I have been so whiny lately but seriously, this week is kicking my butt. I just cannot get caught up on everything I need to get done. I wish I had the money to hire a personal assistant. Is there anyone out there willing to work for muffins? If so then I could totally hook you up!
I had a wonderful bike ride last night out at West Creek. It was hot out there but I was able to get in a quick 15 miles and loosen my legs up a bit. I always feel so tense and tired after sitting at my desk all day. I love to do some easy cardio and remind my legs that they are meant to move around. After the bike ride, I rushed home to get a bunch of chores and errands done. By the time I finished everything it was after 8:00 and I knew that dinner was going to have to be a quick and easy affair. H made himself a bowl of cereal and I toasted an english muffin and topped it with almond butter and cinnamon. Both of us were very happy with our dinner selections but honestly, talk about your lazy dinners! It filled up our bellies though and I guess that is what matters.
I didn't sleep very well last night and when my alarm went off this morning I was almost relieved to be able to stop trying to force myself to sleep. I had a very hard tempo run this morning and I was able to finish it but it was not pretty. I definitely felt the affects of not getting a full night of sleep. Tempo runs and I have a love/hate relationship because I know for a fact that they have made me a better and faster runner but man oh man, some days they just feel like torture. I managed to finish just under 10 miles in 70 minutes and then happily crawled off of the treadmill. I did a quick weight workout and then finished up with some stretching. I am so happy that this workout is finished. On my way out of the gym this morning a guy stopped me and told me that I was too skinny to be at the gym. What in the world!? I wasn't aware that there was a weight requirement!! There are crazy people out there...CRAZY!
My food for today is sort of random and weird because we are running dangerously low on groceries. I have a huge grocery list waiting for me to tackle it tonight after work. I have some carrots, a banana, a peach, a bag of trail mix and an unpictured salad. I may have to break into my emergency snack stash at work!
