Last night, I had a meltdown. A what the hell is happening with my life type of meltdown. I just lost motivation to go to the gym, didn’t want to get out of bed, socialize…..NOTHING. So of course, when Tyler got home I started bawling my eyes out. I got snotty. I know now that Tyler really REALLY loves because he wiped my snot WITH HIS BARE HAND. I shudder at the thought. After the crying conundrum, Tyler and I went to DQ where I picked up this bad boy:
I mean, it’s not the best thing to have when you haven’t worked out in two days (I was depressed, OK!?) and it’s dairy (another no-no) but all men know that the key to a woman’s heart -when you can’t afford jewelry- is ice-cream. After the first bite, I took a deep breath and automatically felt better. To complete the night, we watched Jackass 3 and I laughed my dairy-engorged heart out. I also had the best night’s sleep after. Cry session for the win!
In an effort to squish the blues, I was determined to be a little more proactive today. I had a smoothie (banana, almond cashew butter, chia seeds, almond milk and ice) and eggs for breakfast.
I got my tush up to go to the gym, and Twyla ended up coming with! Sometimes (lots of times) it’s so nice to have a workout buddy. Heck, you don’t even have to work out with them, just arrive and leave at the same time! It feels so much more encouraging. Today’s workout was a combo of cardio and strength intervals. Some of your run-of-the-mill exercises I have posted about before. I ended with a good 20 minutes using the Bosu Ball. I did jump lunges, planks, russian twists, leg lifts and burpees using that thing.
Post workout eats included a Vega Bodacious Berry protein smoothie (only 100 cals, 11g protein, and 2 servings of veggies!)
And a cheddar/spinach/salsa whole wheat wrap.
Which was mainly a spinach wrap. I’m not complaining, I need all the greens I can get!
My sweat started to really cool down, so I made a cup of peppermint tea to top it all off
Immediately after tea, Twyla and I took all three pups to Nose Hill for a walk. I tried to take some pictures, but it was a tad overcast, so you can’t see much. But I will post them regardless
Twy with all three pups:
Me with all three. Layla was terrible on the leash. Ugh.
I have just napped and showered after a full day..gonna gussy myself up for tonight (Even though I have no clue what we are doing, I figured it would be nice to put on real clothes and makeup).
Not a whole ton of words today. I am partially recovering from last night’s sob fest and I’m just so dang pooped from working out and that walk!
Have a great Friday night, see y’all in the A.M.!
I’m sorry to hear you had a rough night – trust me, I’ve been there (and recently, too)! Ice cream is a perfect solution. Tyler is one smart guy. 🙂
Is it bad that I am jealous of your snow? I’ve loved the warm up we had in Chicago this week but would totally take snow over the dreary yuck we have today!
The snow came and went! They say if you don’t like Calgary weather, wait 5 minutes…and it’s so true!
And yes, Tyler knows when skittles and ice cream are necessary. Boy knows when to surrender the sugar!
