The good news: I’m sleeping again & definitely starting to feel better.
The meh news: I was all over the place this morning!
I wasn’t focused, I didn’t feel like working, and I didn’t even want my own coffee.
Don’t be alarmed – I wanted coffee, I just didn’t want my coffee.
In my little funk, I drove to a local specialty store, got some hot coffee AND a bag of double chocolate lara bites. WTF?
I don’t even really like them. They’re average at best.
I don’t even think I’ve ever bought them before today.
I ate them all.
They weren’t delicious. I wasn’t hungry. I ate them all. Yep. It happened.
Of course that didn’t help my focus! All that sugar on an empty stomach!
Can’t help but laugh and move the heck on.
I managed to grind through a few hours of work and decide on a date & city for the next Primal Potential in-person event. I’ll share that info soon, I hope! I want to get a contract signed for a location first.
I’m gonna hate life during today’s speed workout after eating all that crap this morning.
I’d be lying to suggest that I didn’t consider skipping today’s workout but using overeating as a reason to skip a workout is pretty backwards logic!
I might make one choice that doesn’t make me feel my best but I’m not gonna make two!
“Throw Back Thursday”
Teams of 3:
7 Kettlebell Swings (70/53#)
7 Box Jumps (24/20″)
So, each person goes through the full list of movements and then the next teammate goes. Only one person is working at a time and you’re going as fast as you can.
Thanks in advance, muscle glycogen, for firing my muscles as quickly as possible…
I will tell you this: all that sugar was mental motivation during the workout! I imagined the sugar being shunted to my tired muscles and making it possible for me to GO GO GO!!!
That was a brutal workout. I had to focus so hard on breathing and recovering between each round so I was able to go hard again.
I’m going out to a charcuterie place for dinner tonight so I can assure you that I won’t be eating until then. Not only did I eat plenty this morning, it was puurrrrrre sugar.
Meat, cheese and water tonight.
Well, we started with meat, cheese & water – a small plate.
Then we shared wagyu beef meatballs, a salad and some wagyu tacos. Gooooood stuff. The pictures made it to my Instagram story.
Will I try to make up for this indulgence? No.
Will I get all emotional about it? No.
Was the day a failure? No.
Did I blow it? No.
I ate a bag of Lara Bites for breakfast. That’s all.
No need for drama. It’s food. I chose it.
Here’s a great day tomorrow, focusing on choices that make me feel proud, energized & strong!
