Welcome to Funky Town, population: me.
I don’t know what’s going on the past several days but I sure am in the biggest funk known to man-kind. Ever since Monday I’ve experienced the biggest dip in motivation to work out hard and eat clean (at night at least).
My strength workouts during my lunch hours have dropped to the pathetic level and lately at night I’ve been going straight to the tub of peanut butter with a box of crackers by my side. Each morning I wake up feeling like poo but I can’t change this week’s shittay habit.
Last night after running errands I was more than ready for dinner, and while I had a serious craving for peanut butter, I tried to be a little healthy and went for an egg white pita.
Arnold Pita Thins are awesome and only 100 calories per half pita. The pita is doughy and absolutely perfect, which was a winning combo when paired with my egg mixture. I scrambled 3 egg whites and 1 egg with a handful of shredded cheese. The pita left me feeling full and satisfied, but later that night I STILL went for the peanut butter.
Once again, this morning I woke up feeling like shit but was still able to hammer out an awesome run, even though I wasn’t good last night and had sore legs from yesterday’s leg workout.
- 4 mile run
- 3 sets of 25 stair push-ups
- 50 crunches
- 1 minute plank hold
- 40 plank tucks
- 10 leg circles – clockwise & counterclockwise
- 30 toe touches
- 50 scissors
I was a little pressed for time this morning because overnight we were hit with a little snow, which made for messy road conditions this morning.
It’s been snowing nonstop since maybe 3 am, and it’s almost 4 pm already! With the snow falling and slushy walkways, I honestly wasn’t in the mood to walk to the gym on my lunch break, but since I felt like a lard ass, I knew it’d make me feel better.
My biggest mistake, however, was that I went to the gym without a game plan, or the only plan I had was to do arms & backs. I had several exercises in my head, but I’m intensley focused when I have my game plan written down.
The workout wasn’t good at all and we’ll leave it at that.
My lunch boosted my mood a little bit, until my coworkers wanted to talk while I was eating my warmed up Cinnamon Roll Quest Bar with PB2 on top, which if you eat these warmed, you’ll know you have to eat these fast, otherwise you’ll have to microwave the rock again.
Seriously, messing with a girl who loves to eat while she’s trying to enjoy her lunch is the wrong move, especially when said girl is in funky town.
Why couldn’t they have bothered me while I struggled through my bowl of broc?
All I know is that I better get out of this funk by Saturday because The Prospect and I will be going out for a fancy dinner and a hockey game to celebrate his birthday! It’ll be such an important day that I know I need to get my ass in check starting right now since I want to feel great physically.
Another thing that’s kept me laughing all day is this video called, The NFL: A Bad Lip Reading.”
“You’ve got an orange peanut? An orange peanut.. for me? Wow, an orange peanut, I accept you.” I’m dying. 🙂
So my friends, here’s where I need your help. How do you guys get out of workout and eating funks?
Oh, okay, Ryan, if you insist.
