A love/hate relationship with my ceiling fan, and Jillian Michaels
Last night was a cardio night because I had done a full weight workout the night before. I didn't feel like going to the gym and sitting on a machine for 30 minutes so I browsed through the on demand videos on cable. I started with a yoga fitness fusion workout but I only lasted 10 minutes. Then I found Jillian's 30 Day Shred, level one. I knew there would be some strength involved, but I just figured I'd use really light weights. My apartment is decent sized but the issue is that I'm 6' tall and there's a ceiling fan in the living room! My bedroom is just too small to get a good workout in. So I just did the best I could with the space away from the fan. Luckily, there were no incidents. The workout was a good one and I felt great after it was done. Today I'm feeling all around gross and I think it's because 1. I started my day with a plain donut and 2. the only thing I've eaten since 7:30 this morning (the donut) is a nectarine. That just doesn't work. So by 11am I had a splitting headache and felt like I was going to pass out so I went to get an early lunch. Ham sandwich. It was just what I needed. I still feel a little spacey but that's ok. I really put my body through the ringer this week with all the workouts and the abrupt change in diet. I know that it's all good and I'm going in the right direction but today I'm finding it hard to even type this blog because my arms are sore! I'm looking forward to taking a rest night tonight and just laying low. I'm so glad it's Friday!!!
