Rushing through Monday

My killer workouts on Saturday and Sunday definitely caught up to me today. I could barely get out of bed. I slept in for an extra hour (so I was up at 5:30 instead of 4:30) and that definitely helped. I also decided not to go to the gym this morning (Monday's are scheduled as my optional morning workout day) and instead did 45 minutes of really good yoga and stretching. I bought this book - Ultimate Flexibility - and started doing a few of the exercises in that book. It felt great.

Breakfast was delicious -- my omelet muffins with avocado (recipe coming soon, I promise):

Work was alright.
Acupuncture went well. I've definitely become more comfortable with the process, and I'm really relieved that the dizziness following the session has pretty much completely subsided.

I had a late lunch - 2 tuna burgers (no bun or anything, just the patty -- recipe for this to follow soon too).

After that, I was really tempted to nap, but earlier in the day I had started to do some of my Nutrition Studies reading, so I completed the section, took the quiz, and scored 100% :) Yay!

Rush, rush, rush -- dinner prep, a bit of cleaning, then out the door (cursing through traffic) to kickboxing class where I took out a lot of stress. Man it was a fabulous session. Great pad work plus some dirty elbows - love 'em ;)

Dinner was another new recipe - baked cod with dill & lemon accompanied by some veggies. I felt that the cod was a bit dry so I think the recipe needs some tweaking before I post it. However, the vegetables were yummy!!

Another busy, busy day -- now off to bed feeling satisfyingly sore :)

  1. Hi Plum - I really need to eat avocado as often as you do:)

    1. Sometimes if I'm eating too much of it (basically 2 whole avocados a week). I really enjoy them! I feel they bring an extra yumminess to whatever I'm eating :)

  2. Yeah, I'm thinking you need to post some of these recipes :)

    I'm all in with the avocado. It's wonderful for promoting satiety, and it just plain tastes awesome.

    1. I definitely will post the recipes soon! :)

  3. looking forward to the recipes :)
    everytime I read your post..I get motivated to work harder :)

    1. Thank you so much! That means a lot to me! :)

  4. I think I would love that book shown above. Every group of exercisers have their own flexibility exercises. I've employed some of the dance flexibility exercises I've found on, and I noticed a difference, plus it was fun!

    1. I like the idea of dance flexibility exercises. I'll check that out! :)
