Yesterday was a complete mess. I ate an early breakfast of a banana and peanut butter because I new I had to leave work and drive over an hour to get to training where they were sponsoring lunch. Lunch turned out to be sandwiches, chips, cookies and soda. Yea, you guessed it, I at that crap. Two hours later I was falling asleep during the lecture. For dinner I grilled a burger on the grill and ate some spinach. I still had that carb cycle bullshit going on so I ended up eat a bunch of crackers after dinner. With each mistake we make there is always a lesson to be learned and todays lesson is always bring your own food when you don’t know what will be on the menu.
Today I have changed the routine up slightly as I am doing just 20 minutes cardio followed by a strength training routine with heavier weights and two sets instead of one. The reason for the change is that I here my body screaming for a real challenge with muscle strength and less of a desire to walk for a full length of 40 minutes. The overall length of the workout is still just under an hour and fits perfectly with my time available. And it feels really good to warm up before performing muscle bearing exercises.
Tomorrow is a was as it is a travel day. We will be leaving the house at 4:00 AM to get to the airport by 4:30 AM when TSA opens. We board the plane at 6:00 AM and should arrive in Tampa, Florida by 5:11 PM after a stop over in Chicago. Once we get off the plane we have to pick up are car rental and drive over an hour through rush hour traffic to get to the house we rented through Home Away.
I am hoping that Sunday will bring about the opportunity to get up early and run the beach. I am a little scared of the food choices I will be making over the next week but know that I can find a supermarket and pick up some healthy foods. I may eat things I shouldn’t but when I do I will simply limit them in quantify. Stand by for the trip folks…
