Dreary Weather

Is it just me or does dreary weather make anyone else feel like doing nothing? It's gray and looks like rain here today. My motivation to workout? Lacking. Of course, it doesn't help that I stayed up a bit too late last night and am tired. When I'm tired, motivation really suffers. Napping sounds much better than further exhausting myself. However, I will. I need to.

I didn't get to workout yesterday because my cousin and the Little Miss stopped by my parents' house just as I was getting ready to start my workout. They stayed for dinner, so by the time they left, I had enough time to get ready to head over to my boyfriend's for the night.

I definitely have some work to do today! In addition to my regularly scheduled leg day, I'll have to do my shoulder and tricep work from yesterday. I'll do some cardio too. Due to my lack of energy I doubt I'll run today (that sounds overwhelming, actually). I'll most likely bike for half an hour or so. I'd really like to walk the dogs, but it looks like rain. It seems like it always wants to rain when I want to walk the dogs. Or grill out, which I also planned on doing this evening (steak and some veggies for dinner). I can stand in the garage to grill so it isn't a big deal. It just seems that, more times than not, when I plan to grill, it rains. Weird

This evening will be fairly low key. After I workout and such I'll probaly clean up a bit, do some laundry, and then spend the evening relaxing. It seems like a good night to light a couple candles (I do that often anyway though) and read. I'd actually prefer to sit and do that instead of working out (see, I MUST be tired). I'm looking forward to spending the evening in relaxation mode!

I missed a call from my doctor's office yesterday. They called at 5:45, so I was long gone for my chiropractor appiontment. Naturally, they were only open until noon today, and I didn't get the message until after that. I'll have to call tomorrow morning. I'm assuming it's about the labwork I had done recently. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous and wished that I could call right this minute. I'm sure nothing is terribly wrong, but they don't usually call if everything is good. Maybe everything is fine though and they're just following up on the medication change. I guess I'll find out tomorrow morning. Until then I'm going to try to distract myself so I don't worry about it.

My medication change seems to be working already. I really have not had much of an appetite lately. Even with it being pre-TOM time I've been just fine. If anything, I catch myself reaching for snacks when I'm tired or not busy enough. I'm aware of it though, so that's good. Sometimes I avoid the snacks and sometimes I don't. Because I'm not hungry, I actually need those calories. I'd prefer healthy calories but just want to eat that much. No worries, I'm eating enough (more than enough over the weekend, especially at the family reunion). I'm just not super hungry. Often during pre-TOM I feel ravenous so I'm glad I'm not right now! Anyway, I need to work at finding a way to eat more healthy calories despite not being hungry. I HATE eating when I'm not hungry but I know I need to eat. The good thing with this is that even though my goal has been around 1500 calories, on an average day I'm over 1200 but under 1500...Seems like 1200 is a good average lately. Hopefully this will be helpful for my weight!

I suppose that's it for now. If I sit too long I am really not going to want to workout. Given that it's taking more motivation than usual, I should probably get moving.

Hope your week is going well thus far!
