I woke up in a panic because I was supposed to have a 10-page lab report due tomorrow evening AND I have a big nutrition exam on Thursday. In addition to that, my Tuesday and Wednesday were chock full and I had no idea where either writing or studying would fit in. Unfortunately I didn’t access blackboard until 4pm this afternoon, but it sure made the evening relaxing. I suddenly gained three more hours tomorrow to study for the test and gained a weekend to work on my report. HOLLA
So, I didn’t meet Lauren for our early morning run. I had a horrid night’s sleep last night and decided it would be better for me to snooze for an extra hour. I ended up taking the dog for a 30-minute walk and doing some abs. I trained a client at the gym, then headed to the rec to coach bootcamp. As it turns out, I’m glad I didn’t end up running because we did a partner workout at bootcamp and we had an odd number. I stepped in as a partner and got in a great workout. Here’s what we did:
*Jogged 1 mile
*50 step-ups, each leg
*25 plank ups and downs, each arm
*40 tricep dips
*25 ball tuck-ins
*100 jumping jacks
*25 plank high fives
*80 bicycle crunches
*2 full-court suicides
For lunch today, I couldn’t decide on a burrito or a salad. The verdict. Combine the two! This may be one of the easiest and tastiest “recipes” ever. I swear, it took less than 3 minutes total. Now that’s fast food.
I simply wrapped an Amy’s frozen burrito in a paper towel and microwaved for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, I sliced up romaine and spinach. When the burrito was done, I sliced it into bite-sized pieces, mixed it with the lettuce, and added a few tablespoons of salsa. It sounds weird. It tasted great.
Tomorrow morning I am at the lab early for testing, have a (solo ) 6-miler planned, and am training a few clients…so I’m headed to bed early tonight!
Get rid of all or nothing thinking. If you can’t get in a full workout, break it up into mini sessions. Park farther from work, take the stairs, and take a 10-minute walk. Every little bit of activity adds up!
