Poor planning got the best of me today. You know when you haven’t eaten enough, and your blood sugar starts crashing? UGH! That’s what happened to me in between my workout and lunch.
Before we left for the bank and gym, I had a slice of WW bread + PB.
Then we the bank to open our FIRST JOINT ACCOUNT! I kind of felt like I was getting married when we signed all the papers. We had this special hand-squeeze and stare into each other’s eyes moment. We’ve been together for 5 years, but we’ve always kept our money separate, so it’s a pretty big deal for both of us!
The bank took longer than expected…. when we finally arrived at the gym, I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes of strength training. I did bicep curls, tricep dips, assisted pull-downs, dual pulley rows, etc. It felt good to lift weights, I’ve been putting it off for days…. I very much prefer cardio.
Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 45 minutes
- Average Heart Rate: 126 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 149 bpm
- Calories Burned: 235
THEN, we decided to go directly from the gym to the medical uniform supply store to get Future Husband a new lab coat. Afterwards, we stopped at the grocery store.
By the time we got home, I WAS FREAKING OUT I was so hungry. I should’ve packed a bar or something to hold me over. I rarely go 4 hours without eating, and I usually eat within 30 minutes of finishing my workout.
I raced into the kitchen and made lunch at 2 PM.
I managed to hold off on eating my arm while I broiled a ham and cheese sammie on sourdough bread.
I also had cantaloupe and a plum.
And 1/2 cup of Kashi Go Lean Crunch! with plain NF yogurt.
I feel much, much better now that I ate! WHEW!
Now…. time to SHOWER and head back out to run MORE errands. I think I’ll play it safe and take some food with me! :) Have a nice afternoon!
