This morning didn’t start out as I had planned.
First, I had planned to get up and workout since I have plans to hang out with some coworkers after work for a birthday celebration.
I woke up groggy, had a horrible night’s sleep and knew I just couldn’t function properly if I got up extra early and sweated it out as planned. So what did I do? Went back to sleep.
I had a bad feeling before I opened that fridge. It was true. It didn’t work. I was expecting fluffy chocolate mousse, but I guess my version sucked. Plopping a peanut butter blob in the mix in place of peanut flour did not work. I’m hoping that was my only downfall and it will work when I try it again.
Blah. I guess today’s just one of those days! The thing that got me the most was the exercise guilt. I always make sure I take a rest day, but yesterday was a rest day, too! I wanted to get a good workout in this morning, but it looks like I’ll just have to come home tonight after the festivities and squeeze one in. Sigh. I know I’m super complain-y right now and it sucks. I swear I won’t make a post this depressing again.
I do think it’s important to share how you’re feeling, whether it be about food issues, exercise issues, etc. Everyone has a crappy day now and then. I guess this is mine!
Things turned around a little when I got to eat my new favorite food: chocolate. It’s been a favorite of mine forever, but now that I can eat it again, I can’t get enough! This could be dangerous.
I whipped up a smoothie in a mug. Yep. I like to be lady-like when I sip.
In the mix:
- 1 c. vanilla unsweetened almond milk
- 1.5 tbsp. dark chocolate cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 frozen banana
- Pinch of Splenda
- Dash of vanilla
Yep, this day just might turn around!
Have you ever had to deal with exercise guilt? How do you make yourself feel better?
