… a blog post? On a Saturday? I don’t know if I’ve ever posted on a weekend.
But I suppose there’s a first time for everything, right?!
I fell off the blogging grid a little bit over the last couple of days. Life has been crazy. I haven’t taken a proper lunch break most of the week. I’ve been sleeping less. I had a weird throat thing going on (not good when you talk for a living!). I haven’t been to the gym since Friday.
Wah, wah, wah. I’m such a complainer
I haven’t been living by the whole “my body is a temple” motto. Now, I don’t ever say that phrase. But when you think about it, I really do try to live that way. I tend to eat as healthfully as possible – but I haven’t been on my game this week. Not that I don’t typically indulge (and think it’s important that you should!), I just let convenience get in the way over the last several days. And I may have celebrated kicking ass at work on Thursday by having too many beers. Then this happened last night:
That, my friends, is
heaven butter chicken poutine. It’s what dreams are made of. I shared that appetizer with a friend at dinner. Genius (and yes, I said appetizer … I ate a meal after that).
Needless to say, this week hasn’t been the healthiest for me. And I am not saying I regret it. I enjoyed every bite and every sip of everything. But my body is feeling a little bit … bleck. And I know that comes from taking a week off from the gym, too. So I’m turning things around today! I’m going for a run and it’s going to feel so good. Ever since I read Tina’s post this week on the return of DOMS in her life, I’ve been craving that “hurt so good” feeling.
So, here’s to a healthier day! I have dinner plans and drink plans tonight, but I’m going to get myself to the gym today since I am finally free of my cold and am well rested after going to bed early last night.
I can’t wait to *feel* lighter after working out. I’ve missed it!
