Workout Fail; Try Again.

Yesterday I totally failed at my workout. Why? Several reasons....Of course one of those is probably an excuse rather than a good justification.

It was too damn hot. It was nearly 90 degrees in my house and by the time I relaxed for a bit I was way too drained to do anything intense. I decided I'd wait to workout for a bit, in hopes that it would cool down...And then... 

(Side note: Don't ask me why I didn't turn the air on. My boyfriend asked me that later in the night and I was like "oh, good idea." Apparently I just didn't think of it.) 

I cut my foot. And it hurt. Like, super hurt. I will try to spare the nasty details but I was trying to remove a callous and what I thougth was a callous (still not sure what the heck it is...It's raised like a blister but isn't a blister. Is that a wart? EW?!). I cut it and started bleeding like crazy and it hurt SO bad. I also clipped too much off of a callous on the bottom of my foot, which was in pain every stinkin' time I stepped on it. 

Note to self: Stop trying to clean up your own feet. Get a pedi. After a couple hours I decided to at least go for a litle walk. I figured with some gauze and whatever else for padding I could make it. 

(**FYI, this is the only reason I find to be a good justification.) 

 And then my Mom called and talked. And talked. And it got too dark to walk the dogs. I should've started earlier....You know, when it was hot and I decided to wait a bit too cool down. I should've sucked it up and done SOMETHING while it was hot so that I could've at least had some exercise in. 

Oh well...Shoulda, coulda, woulda... Lesson learned. Moving on. 

It is hot again today but I have already changed into my workout gear and plan on getting started right away after I write this. I have the fan blasting on me, hoping that I will stay cool and not start to feel "blah" from the heat. It doesn't seem as hot today but I'm sure it is.

Today's agenda now includes shoulders, triceps, legs, and now abs too. Luckily my ab routine doesn't take too long, and arms shouldn't either. I'd say that I'll have an hour of ST to do, then some cardio. I'll probably follow the plan I was going to follow yesterday... Some biking on the stationary bike, and maybe a walk later.... If all goes well, that is! I'm definitely feeling the workout bug today so I'm ready to get to it! Today I will start sooner rather than later...And will not pick at any body parts. 

 Eating has been good today.... Healthy overall. I haven't had much of an appetite so my eating schedule is kind of silly. I didn't have breakfast until after 10:30, which is late for me I had to force myself to eat because I wasn't hungry. I had egg whites and fruit. I then when to lunch later than planned, after 1:30, and didn't feel hungry but my body told me I was (I think). Sometimes when I don't eat enough or soon enough, I don't feel well. That happened today. I got sweaty and nauseated. I splurged and had a pop with lunch to give my blood sugar a boost. I ate and felt better, so I'm guessing that's what that was about. 

I'm not sure what I'll do for dinner this evening. I have leftover grilled foods from the weekend that I could have. And a small salad sounds refreshing. I have been hungry for lasagna but I don't think I want to have the oven on for an extended period of time (not at all, actually) to cook it. It seems like the oven just makes the house that much hotter! And that? Is no fun. I'm also not that hungry at the moment and I really don't want to start cooking something I might not be hungry for later. You know what does sound good though? A protein shake. Hmmm... I think I will make one of those after I workout. Then I'll see where I am in terms of calories and hunger. I may just have a small salad a little later. Yes, that's it... A protein shake will for sure be on the menu, post-workout! I 

I guess that's about it... Gotta go work those muscles!! 

Happy Wednesday!
