Today when I saw the sun I really wanted to get outside and do something. Normally I’m a pretty active person, so I would go for a hike, a run, a bike ride… Something that would let me enjoy the sun after the past few rainy and windy days. But I just didn’t have the energy to do those activities today. So I went for a walk, a good alternative low impact activity to get outside but not burn too many calories. It was a great walk, the sky was blue and it was warm out. I was so tired afterward though. I just wanted to sit down on my couch.
I try to bike to work at least once a week – it’s about a 45-60 min ride each way so not to be taken lightly. There was NO way that was happening this week. If I can’t even go for a walk for an hour without getting exhausted, how could I bike commute at a fast pace
On the food side today…
I made a mistake I’ve been hoping to avoid this week – I prepped a big batch of food for today and tomorrow, and one of my dishes didn’t turn out, it tasted a bit weird. But I have to eat it; aside from always not liking to waste food I don’t have veggies to spare. These foods take so long to prepare it’s sad when it goes wrong!
My breakfast however, was spot on this morning, very delicious. But a half carton only has six eggs in it, and the challenge is seven days. Looks like I’ll have to be more creative with breakfast Saturday if I don’t want to eat the same meal three times.
