You know when you get all dressed up for your workout, and then you somehow get distracted? And your motivation starts to tank? And you just think, â€œHmm, maybe I will skip my workout and just lay in
the grass bed instead.â€
That totally happened to me this afternoon! I worked until 2:15 and then planned to go straight to the pool to swim laps. But the Husband called with a secretarying crisis at the clinic, so I threw a hoodie over my swimsuit and rushed over. By the time the fire was put out, it was nearing 3:45, and my motivation was seriously waning.
I spent about five minutes staring out the window, contemplating blowing off my workout completely. But I did the old â€œYou never regret a workout once itâ€™s done; you might regret skipping itâ€ pep talk and hauled my booty to the pool before I could talk myself back out of it.
I also bribed myself with a shorter workout. 🙂 That trick ALWAYS works if youâ€™re pressed for time and arenâ€™t really feeling it to begin with! If you originally planned to do 40 lengths, do 30. If you planned to run a 5 miler, do a 3 miler. Score.
I ended up doing 32 lengths, which is about 750 meters â€“ just what Iâ€™ll be swimming in the June triathlon! And you know what? I didnâ€™t regret the workout at all. 🙂 Of course!
Lunch was consumed at FABO. I bought one of their refrigerated meals and heated it up in their microwave.
It was yummy. Kind of nice that it was soy-sauce free as the veggie flavors really stood out.
Came home and ate a piece of bread with almond butter as my pre-swim snack:
I ended up going back for seconds:
And then, after my swim and a walk with the Husband and Nicole, I made a yummy mixed berry and banana smoothie.
SO glad itâ€™s spring and I can regularly enjoy smoothies again without being chilled to the bone!
Our plans for tonight include hanging with friends and relaxing. Poor Husband worked all week AND all day today! I think a movie night is in order.
