Sunday started out well! I had some tofu and green beans for breakfast after my coffee, and lunch was an awesome vegan pulled pork wrap from Yorgo’s that D picked up for me after Yoga.
Dinner was going to be a big Italian feasty thing, but I ended up meeting up for a long overdue girls evening with S, and I ended up having pickles for dinner. Don’t ask.
Monday I had a green and berry smoothie for breakfast, and lunch was a Tofurky Kielbasa with veggies. Dinner was a BBQ tempeh burger I made with some homemade chipotle BBQ sauce. Sorry – no pictures, but it was yummy!
Today has been pretty minimal on food. I can’t taste anything, so I sort of lose my appetite. I had coffee and a banana for breakfast. Popcorn for lunch, and dinner was a bowl of butternut squash soup and a salad.
Sunday was great. I slept well, and felt good (for most of the day). I went for a great run around 1130am. The weather has been amazing (low 80’s and sunny) for the past week, and it’s just screaming to be outside.
The run was great for a few reasons. First, it just felt good to move. I also felt better than I had in almost a week, and the first thing I could think of to do was to have a nice run. I get stir crazy when I don’t workout, and I imagine I start to get difficult to live with!
A little later in the afternoon, M and I did our first at-home crossfit WOD. We couldn’t make it to the gym, so (following a workout in my WOD book) we did something called a Travel WOD. They’re designed for when you can’t get to the gym, but can still bust out a good CF workout. We picked the first in the list – the Room Service WOD. It consisted of 20 rounds of: 5 push-ups, 5 squats, and 5 sit-ups. For time. It took M 5:11 to complete, and it took me 9:56. And two days later, my legs are still burning from doing 100 squats.
It’s been a few ups and downs the past few days. On the up side, I started feeling better Sunday morning. On the down side, I started feeling like hell Sunday evening.
On the up side, I slept fairly decently Saturday evening, and even better on Sunday evening. On the down side, I slept like total poo last night. (though I think that’s from being sick and nothing to do with my new sleep rules – which seem to be helping me).
On the down side, my plans with S on Saturday got canceled, but on the up side, we managed to find time to hang out on Sunday!
On the down side, I started feeling worse Sunday evening than I had the week previously. On the up side, I got into the Dr today, was told I have a sinus infection and bronchitis, but did get put on medications that will make me better soon (by the weekend and M’s birthday for sure!).
So I think between the ups and the downs, I’m running pretty solidly in the middle 🙂
