Hello Everyone. I hope your Sunday was a good one.
Well, since I last posted – I’ve had an okay week. I made it to the gym on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and today. So much for attempting a full week! On Tuesday I worked late and just felt incredibly tired and unmotivated. Wednesdays workout was late at night, but I was happy to get it done. Truthfully, I told myself I could only partake in celebrating National Wine Day with a glass of wine, if I made it to the gym – is that bad?
But it got me there, and I had a yummy glass of wine afterwards so I consider that a win/win.
On Thursday I worked overtime and didn’t even have dinner until 9pm…I was not about to try to make it to the gym after a long day like that! On Friday I made it to the gym during lunch, trying to smash in a good workout during the day so I could go out with friends that evening. I opted to do the stairs of death. I went slow, but stayed on them for 40 excruciating minutes. At 35 minutes my ankle/foot started to feel tired. At 40 minutes, I felt twinges of pain. :( Not good…
That evening my friends and I had dinner, and drinks…
And then saw 50 Shades of Grey…yep total girls night out! Although I wasn’t too impressed with the movie, I had fun! And felt even better knowing that I had made it to the gym earlier that day and still had time for friends and fun.
I was supposed to meet my cousin at the gym on Saturday, but when I woke up at 730am, I just didn’t have the
motivation energy to go. my bed totally held me hostage. Plus my ankle was still hurting so, I was actually too scared to go. Instead I worked more overtime and then ran a few errands. One of which was getting this nifty wine rack from Cost Plus!
My wine bottles were all over the place, and now I have a nice spot to store them properly! I love it! I feel so fancy now.
This morning I slept in, which is always a nice treat, then made it to the gym around 930 am. I love Sunday mornings because the gym is pretty much empty! It’s so awesome! What isn’t awesome is that I still felt pain in my foot. So, I opted to do 45 minutes on the stationary bike. It was pretty much complete torture…sitting on that bike is so uncomfortable! But, at least I got to do something – and without putting too much stress on my foot. I also did upper body weights.
When I got home, it was apparent that I needed to clean house…
And right away.
That turned into almost 6 hours of cleaning, dusting, washing, sweeping, vacuuming, and everything else! I feel like I’m constantly cleaning these days, but today I really went to town. I finally hung my Brazen Streaker Frame during my cleaning extravaganza! Ya…the one I received on 12/27/14. Talk about being a slacker!
After a quick trip to the grocery store, I spent my evening preparing for tomorrow’s dinner. I’m making homemade lasagna from scratch, and the sauce takes over an hour to make. So in order to cut down on total prep time tomorrow – I got busy in the kitchen tonight!
Don’t you wish blogs where scratch and sniff?
I’m not too sure how tomorrows weigh in will go. I was far less active this week, but still managed to stay within my daily goals when it came to food.
As for my foot, on Thursday I was casted for my custom orthodics.
Which should arrive in 4 weeks. I’m obviously going to have to take it easy again and probably stick with the bike until the pain goes down. I may even have to wear the boot again if the pain doesn’t subside within the next day or two. This really has been the injury from hell! :/
