*Le siiiiigh* Yes, my usual conundrum. Of course I didn’t workout yesterday, yesterday was a Monday! Why do I still schedule a workout for Monday? I have no clue.
That’s not the worse bit. I also didn’t go to the gym TODAY…. yes I know, I know. BOoooo Jess, boooo. I have an excuse though, a really good one! I hardly caught a wink of sleep last night, it was horrendous. Tossing and turning all night long, couldn’t seem to calm my mind. Too much brain stimuli. Right when I was on the verge of sleep I would jerk back awake and lie there kicking myself. At first I told myself, “You know what, NO excuses, it doesn’t matter how much sleep you get, get your ass on out of bed.” At that point, I assumed I would fall asleep at SOME point, but I hardly did.
4am rolls around and of course I was lying awake before Derek’s alarm went off. His alarm starts to go off and I just moan in agony and frustration. He asks me what’s wrong and I tell him I didn’t sleep all night. So I made the decision to sleep in a few hours so as not to be an unpleasant B**** at work. I slept a lot heavier until 7am. When I woke up and got out of bed I packed up to head to the gym. NOT to workout but to take a shower instead because our water heater erupted last night! NO WATER! I use water for everything! My coffee, washing my face, brushing my teeth, hydrating myself, and showering!
So I’m sitting here at work feeling groggy and disappointed I didn’t make it to the gym like I had hoped. I haven’t had coffee today, so I’m making ends meet with green tea instead. My friend Kat was sweet enough to buy me Sleepy Time tea for me to try tonight. Tonight I’m going to go to bed earlier, and make sure I’m not on my computer or phone an hour before bed. I got so caught up on Instagram last night and this new Kik app.
I think my sleep schedule might be thrown off from having the past 5 days off to sleep in and workout later in the day. I’ve also been thinking about my new suit NONE STOP! So stoked! Woo hoo! Haha! Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well from having too much caffeine and not enough food. My tummy was super nauseous. I had my usual cup of coffee in the morning at home, 2 bags of green tea when I got to work, and another Grande coffee at lunch time. YIKES! Caffeine addiction much?
I will finish the week out strong though! I’ll be working out Wednesday through Sunday, 5 days this week. I needed at least one rest day (yesterday) since I reached my goal of 6 workouts last week. An extra day might have been needed, if not for my physical well being, at least my mental well being.
On a more positive note, I’m really excited about my progress even through the Thanksgiving feasting! I feel leaner than I ever have, definitely have a solid core and my upper body is coming in so nicely. So excited for January to roll around so I can kick it into high gear! 6 days a week no excuses! An hour of cardio and an hour of lifting! Trying to imagine what my show shape will be like and my tummy is getting butterflies again! EEEEEK! I feel a win in April…. I really feel it.
