SNEAK PEAK -------> Apera sent me one of their brand new bags! I can't wait to do the review for you.
The bad part about moving all of your stuff into a new gym bag is when you forget something. Like your cycling shoes. Well that workout just wasn't happening. I took a picture of myself instead.
Am I being a cycling snob? Maybe. I've been riding my bike and the spin bike for YEARS with these shoes, and I simply can't bring myself to ride without them. What I also realized was that I had left the house without a lunch, or a breakfast, and had to hit the store anyway. I felt so out of sorts. Can we just blame the time change for everything?
Also, this picture is so deceiving --- it would appear that I'm wearing Hammer pants. I am not.
Lunch couldn't come fast enough for some reason. I was starving, maybe because of all of the rich, fatty foods I enjoyed over the weekend. Or maybe it was because it took my sweet potato 12 minutes to cook in the microwave.
I picked up some of these bad boys today. NEED THE VIT C!
After a long afternoon with some candy-detoxing kiddos, I was ready to be home. Relaxing. Chillin'. Stalking you guys.:) Harry had class, so I had the house and Netflix all to myself. Whilst Facebooking, I noticed a ton of people already getting ready for a holiday two months away.
While Thanksgiving and Christmas are two of my most favorite times of the year, I am not too pleased with the thought of seeing Christmas trees, lights and stockings already up in the stores. In fact, it makes me feel oogey.
This might be a solution, if I didn't like turkey sammiches so much.
So my workout didn't happen this morning. Would it have felt blissful to flush out the tiny bit of tightness in my quads? Yes. Was I upset by the fact that a workout wasn't happening? Absolutely not.
Wanna know why?
While it would've been nice to get my endorphins on, I was going to be furiously rushed and severely frustrated. I was already risking not washing my hair (two things here: HENCE THE RED HEADBAND, and Mondays are horrible to be a hair washing day...), and I wasn't in the mood to skip any meals. I'm not sure anyone would be in the mood for that (for me to skip meals, hah). I didn't prioritize correctly, and that's probably 90% why I'm okay with missing one workout this week.
I can't fret over that. I've been coaching my volleyball teams, working hard on Halloween stuff in my gym, and traveling. Perhaps this was the universe's way of saying "Dude...chill this morning". It's seriously okay if you miss a workout because you're overwhelmed. You can't take that personally. All I could do this morning is take care of the things I didn't previously have time for, and not worry about skipping a training sesh. My legs will forgive me, too.
Side note: I just looked at the clock, completely exhausted, eyes getting bloodshot, and it's only 7:52pm.
Do you freak out if you miss a run or a training session, or are you good with accepting your workout fate?
RANDOM RUNNING QUESTION: Do you have a favorite trail, loop, or route?
-I have a few around here, but I really miss the trails out by my own workplace in the 'burbs!
What shows are you into right now?
-American Horror Story for me!
QUICK: Are you enjoying some fruit today? Tell me all about it.:)
