Yesterday was a weird day. I was lethargic and in a mood. The passing of time was agonizingly slow. I was hungry all. day. long and couldn’t seem to quell the beast.
It just wasn’t the best day.
After work I almost went home and surrendered to my crabbiness. I may or may not have eaten ice cream and watched some American Idol.
I actually kind of like the new judges. I’m surprised. I always fast forward through the bad singers. I just like the good ones. And Jennifer Lopez is so stunning it’s shocking. I had forgotten.
But then I kicked myself and realized that by loafing on the couch yet again, I was only feeding into the negativity of the day. So I got up and went to Body Pump.
A sweaty hour passed by and I felt revitalized. I needed that workout. Bad mood: conquered.
When I got home, I decided to have something resembling an actual balanced meal for dinner.
That’s hard to do when you’re in desperate need of groceries (and when am I not anymore?). But there are always eggs.
More specifically eggy cheese toast. I also decided to add some green vegetables.
Even though I’m partial to my brussels sprout cooking method, I was feeling lazy so I just roasted them in balsamic vinegar and a bit of agave. They were still quite tasty.
After eating I cleaned, started some laundry, watched more TV, talked to my mom – and before I knew it was after 9:30. The 8:30 bedtime is no more!
I got to thinking about it yesterday, and I think I’ve been going to bed so early to shut off all the stress and pressure I’ve been dealing with lately. Plus, I was sick. So I don’t feel as lame as I originally did.
And sleep really is good for the body and mind. I’m not complaining.
It’s Friday! Not complaining about that either. Lisa and I are going to do our long run for the half together after work, and then I plan on taking it easy again tonight. Hey, I never said I was a party animal.
Maybe Saturday… maybe.
What are your plans for the weekend?
Do you watch American Idol? Thoughts on the new judges?
