However, my eyes didn't spring open this a.m. all by themselves...nope...it was my dog! As always! I had my alarm set for 7 a.m. but she had me up at 5:53 a.m. I wasn't going to go back to bed for another hour and I wasn't going to reset my alarm for later because I wanted to make sure I had enough time this morning to watch American Horror Story...LOL!!!!!!! Hey, whatever works.
So instead I made my way to the couch with my snack and my coffee and then headed out to the gym. I earned 5 AP's before 8:30 a.m.!! Woo!! I have to work 1-9 today so hopefully the energy boost I have been experiencing from the working out will stay steady and carry me through the night.
I've (of course!) got my lunch and snacks packed for work and it's 99% power foods (minus the cashew milk in my smoothie) so I know they'll keep me feeling satisfied and I'm sure the nutrients will keep me awake. Or at least I hope! ;-) I had a delicious breakfast this morning after the gym and that's got me feeling good. I had planned on scrambled eggs and egg whites but while at the gym and working up an appetite I decided to bulk up my eggs with some veggies and when I came home I added onions, green peppers, spinach and grape tomatoes to my scramble. Yum! Usually I just do eggs and egg whites with a side of fruit and sometimes some toast or an English muffin but I already ate my English muffin pre-gym and the idea of only scrambled eggs had my stomach growling. I was too hungry for that nonsense ;-) Adding some veggies was easy and really bulked up my scrambled eggs! I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner LOL
I've got a hamburger and green beans packed for lunch and a smoothie and some grapes for snacks :) Love seeing those little green triangles in my tracker! :) I'm a little tired currently because I was so super productive this morning but I'm sure once I get to work I'll get my second wind. One thing I know for sure is I'm going to sleep GOOD tonight! Tomorrow I am not lifting weights but I'm going to Zumba and staying for yoga after that so it'll be another great, active day!
Staying active is making my skin look good, boosting my immunity and helping me get real quality sleep and even though it means I have to rearrange my schedule accordingly and even though sometimes "I don't want to" I'm really glad that I'm sticking to my plan.
Not only do I feel better but I also feel PROUD and that's the best way to feel :)
