Yesterday I woke up tired, and couldn't shake the cobwebs, despite an unusually high amount of caffeine. My body felt stiff and heavy, felt like I just couldn't get the blood moving. Since it was a fairly slow day at work, I decided to make some positive use of my time, and got in a leg workout at work. Sure, it wasn't a full-on heavy workout, but the work I did do had my quads pumped up for more than an hour afterword, and really sped up my metabolism. I did a deadlift/squat compound move, and a step-up with leg raise (for glutes) and did two sets of each. By the time I finished, I felt so much better, awake and even cheery. For a Monday, it went really smoothly and ended really low-stress. What a relief.
This morning I did my favorite interval cardio, and shaved a little more time off, not really knowing how I did it, as each time I walk that it feels like I am walking as fast as I posibly can. It was so dark out this morning that I had to use the light of my iPod to see my stopwatch. I am going to keep going outside until the snow comes. Blah, that's a depressing thought, but I'm not going to dwell on it. It is garage sale season here in Green Bay, so I feel confident I should be able to score a treadmill before the snow flies.
Even though it looks like I won't get close to my goal of being under 150 by the time my reunion hits this weekend, I feel great about how I look, and feel really amazing about the transformation of body and mind that I have been able to make. Now all that's left is to finish out the work week, which should be pretty mellow, and go have fun.
Hope everyone is having a productive week!
