I didn’t have the best start to the day… lots of stressful stuff going on this morning. I don’t want to get into all of my personal crap here on the blog, but does anyone have any good ways of compartmentalizing things and moving on with the day? I’m trying to just focus on all of the things I have to accomplish, but I feel like I carry the stress of a bad morning with me into the day. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
I had a great workout this morning, though: 15 minutes on the cross trainer (this thing is hard, like hiking!) and 20 minutes on the elliptical. I caught the Obama/ Sarkozy/ Brown speech on Iran’s nuclear program. Man, they really laid into Ahmadinejad. I felt kind of awkward watching him watch the three guys blasting him. But it was awesome- I don’t like the guy at all! After cardio, I did 15 minutes of some great arm exercises with weights, planks and ab work, and some squats. And a little stretching.
I picked up some stuff on the way home at TJ’s. I knew what a sad state my fridge was in and wanted a healthy, well-rounded breakfast. I made scrambled eggs (1 egg, 2 whites) with tomato and avocado.
On two pieces of whole wheat, with ketchup and hot sauce.
And a glass of diluted OJ (makes the bottle last longer, saves calories!).
My first instinct/ urge was to put cheese on this, but then I asked myself if I really needed it and decided I didn’t. And there was enough great flavor here that I didn’t miss it. I have to be very careful with cheese, because, if it were up to me, I would put it on everything! But sometimes it’s not worth the fat and calories- and sometimes it is ;).
Back to work… Happy FRIDAY!
