My Body Has Spoken
It is such a pretty day outside on this lovely Saturday :)!
I think that clear, blue sky and sunshine means that I’m gonna have to layout and attempt to get a tan :).
Last night, Chris and I went and saw the movie Horrible Bosses. It was super funny! There were definitely several moments where my stomach hurt from laughing. That being said, it was exactly what you’d expect it to be- there weren’t really any surprises. But still, a movie that makes me laugh is a great one in my book.
Also, remember how I turned 23 the other day? Well apparently I don’t look old enough to see an R-rated movie because I got carded last night when we were buying our tickets. I mean c’mon people! haha
Anyway, this morning I completed a pyramid climb treadmill workout very similar to this one. However, I had to decrease the speeds a little bit because my body wasn’t having it. A pyramid climb involves increasing the amount of time spent working and always recovering with just 30 seconds. Today’s workout looked like this-
Repeat one more time starting with 30 seconds at 8.0mph. Cool down for 5 minutes at 4.0. I followed this with 10 minutes on the AMT.
Like I said, I had to decrease the speed somewhat because my body just couldn’t work as hard today. Actually the past several days my workouts have felt a lot harder than normal. I think it’s because I have been indulging a lot this past week- in more ways than one. I’ve had heavy desserts
multiple 5 nights in a row. I’ve been drinking wine or mixed drinks with dinner most of the nights since I’ve gotten home, and usually I only drink once or twice a week. AND I’ve been eating out a lot, which is a rarity when I’m at school.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for indulging with food and drinks. Of course I want to enjoy those sweet things in life :). BUT, I usually only do that once or twice a week…not most days of it. My body has spoken – it feels sluggish when I workout, my stomach has had some pains the past two days, and I can’t seem to get a good night of sleep.
It’s been a fun holiday and birthday celebration week, but I think it’s time to get back on track and return to my normal eating patterns :). No worries, I’m still going to have my treats-
Just maybe not every single night ;). I want to feel good…and I want to sleep.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday!
ALSO, I want to promote The great Fundraising Act that I read about on Janetha’s blog.
I think this is awesome and if you want to learn more about it, click here!
Does your body ever give you signs that you’re maybe eating a little too many treats?
