So yesterday morning I missed my workout, it was bound to happen with my work schedule getting crazy as it is. I just could not get up early enough. It didn’t help that I woke up with a pounding headache and all I could think about was all the work I had to do today. It was just one of those mornings so instead of getting annoyed at myself and thought it’s okay I must have really needed that sleep and rest. I already need to switch my schedule around a bit since Friday body pump classes have been canceled so I can make it up then.
Simple breakfast of yogurt and blueberries.
Salad topped with blueberries and a packet of salmon. Sorry no picture forgot to take it.
Lots of water today because I am not sure if I am getting a cold so I wanted to stay hydrated!
A surprise Starbucks latte from Steve late this afternoon. Loved it!
Dinner was a simple salad with salmon from Atlanta Bread ordered through work. I love salmon and order it whenever it’s on the menu.
So last night I was feeling pretty tired after work so I decided to just take the dogs for a walk after dinner. It was a short quick walk because it was cold! The temperature sure has dropped here but so has just about everywhere else except for Florida (tell me again why I live in Illinois?).
On my lunch break yesterday I prepared a pork tenderloin in the Crockpot to cook through the afternoon. It was a Pineapple Pork Tenderloin recipe. Have you checked out her blog before? You should if you have not already! I get most of my Crockpot recipes (or some version of it) from her blog. I love cooking with the Crockpot especially during the cold winter months. I remembered last night as I was getting ready for bed that I didn’t take a picture to share with you. Sorry! I am still trying to get used to taking pictures while cooking or working out to share. I served the pork tenderloin with some brown rice and quinoa. It was a tasty and easy dinner.
This morning I ran 7 miles on the treadmill at an average 9:21 pace which is slower than I wanted but it took me a bit to warm up. It was soooo cold out this morning!
So glad I have access to a treadmill because there is no way I would be running outside with a -8 windchill. My run went by quickly and even though I had a slow start I had some good (for me) negative splits.
Work wasn’t too exciting today and it was still very cold and windy at lunch so I didn’t walk the dogs except for a quick potty break, sure hope it warms up a bit soon. I went to Body Pump class right after work as well. I was still super tired today so I’m glad I mustered up some energy to go because it was a great class and I love seeing the progress that I’m making.
Well the dogs are snoring away and I think they have the right idea so it’s off to bed for me too. Have a good night!
