Monday night I went to WalMart after the kids went to bed to do some Christmas shopping. I had a few things on my list (stocking stuffers, wrapping paper, tape, gift tags, food for our lunches, etc …) and had planned my outing to be a Ã…”quick trip Ã‚Â …..Instead I got caught up in the moment and the bright lights, so my quick little errand ended up taking 90 min. (Do bright store lights Ã…”wake Ã‚Â you up too?) Anyways, I stayed so late enjoying my Ã…”freedom Ã‚Â that the hubby called me on my cell all worried that something had happened to me.
Fast forward to Tuesday morning … I woke up at 7:20 ” over an hour later than normal. Somehow I had managed to sleep through my iPhone alarm (I ‘m Sexy and I Know It) being played repeatedly, and everyone in the house also slept in. I felt so sluggish and tired. By lunch time I STILL felt tired so I decided to give myself a rest day, yanno, skip my planned 5k run (it’s only 5k right? No big deal), then I ate some good ol’ Canadian Poutine for lunch …
So freaking good but ….. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Holy moly! I felt like I had taken a sleeping pill or something! My head was soooooooo heavy! And although I shouldn’t admit this, I wasn’t all that productive (unless head nods count as being productive, Ã‹Å“cause I certainly produced a lot of those). Normally, when I run at lunch, I come back feeling energized, awake and ready to concentrate. But Tuesday afternoon was a whole Ã‹Å“nother ballgame. I just couldn’t Ã…”get into Ã‚Â my work.
Have you ever had that happen to you? Skip a workout because you’re tired, then realised after that if you had just worked out you would have felt a million times better?
My own motto is ringing in my ears … You can have fitness or excuses … Perhaps tomorrow I ‘ll make the right choice.
