After practically gushing about how well things were going yesterday I guess I deserved a crappy day today. I will spare the details at risk of sounds whiny, but it was quite trying to say the least. Thank god for running.
Breakfast held Oats and Honey Special K with almond milk and coffee. No shocker there.
After finally making it to work 45 minutes late after my morning fiasco of a “non-accident” as I am calling it, I was able to catch up on some things I needed to get done there (luckily I had an open patient appointment at 9) which was fantastic. The morning flew by and all of a sudden I was eating lunch, and had work to catch up on again.
For lunch I had a Spinach salad with strawberries, blackberries, goat cheese, blueberry craisins and raspberry vinaigrette dressing; cherry tomatoes and a clementine.
After work I headed to the Starbucks I was raving about yesterday only to find it was closed due to a power outage. Womp Womp! I got back in the car and slugged home through traffic resigning that my mind needed to run before I could even think about trying to accomplish anything tonight. I scarfed down a banana on my commute and had my sneakers on before crossing the threshold of my house to get on the road.
It was windy and cold but I so need to do something to calm my mind that I didn’t even notice. By the time I made it home I had talked myself down to where I always try to arrive: There are things I have control over and things that I don’t. Those that I do I need to fix, and those that I don’t I need to move on from, being angry changes nothing. Thank you running for those words of enlightenment!
To top off a great run, I started the 100 push up challenge Monday. It has you doing push ups 3 days per week, beginning with 5 sets of various numbers of reps and building up. So when I made it home from my run today I set in on those and added an equal number of squats and crunches to the set. The whole shebang took me about 12 minutes and if I can do that 3 times a week I should be in business (at least injury prevention wise). So 53 push ups, squats and crunches later, I hit the shower and made up some dinner.
While finishing up the last two episodes of House of Cards (OMG I love it) I treated myself to a few starburst jelly beans and some yogurt (which I didn’t know wasn’t greek when I bought it, but hey, you win some, you lose some).
Hope you ate some delicious things today! Happy hump day!
