Happy Saturday and St. Patrick’s Day. Did you wear your green?
Today was a good day. We were up super late last night and so slept late this morning. Got up, grabbed coffee (I tried a new creamer today Califia Almond Milk w/ coconut) had a quick breakfast of an egg and a spoonful of mashed sweet potatoes and then headed out to run errands.
As soon as I got home it was time to finish my last workout for phase 1 of 80 Day Obsession. The last workout was, of course, cardio flow. This workout kills me in so many ways. It’s one of the most intense cardio workouts I’ve ever done. My heart rate maxes out, my legs max out and by then end I just want to throw up. True story. The funny thing is, it looks so easy but, my friends, it’s NOT! Here are a couple of snapshots.
After the workout it was time to color my hair (prematurely gray is not sexy) and then a much needed bath with some amazing muscle soak that I found at Whole Foods while my hair sets.
My body is more tired tonight than it’s been in a very long time. I’m not used to not having energy to the level that I don’t have energy right now. But I refuse to quit. I’m seeing the changes happening and I will finish. I am sore, fatigued and weak by the end of Saturday every week. But by Monday, I’m looking forward to the next workout because I can see every week how much stronger I’m getting. Isn’t that fantastic?
OK, moving on from my boasting…we played a round of video golf which was a ton of fun and then I went to start dinner. I had planned to have this great St. Patricks day feast but have never cooked corned beef before. OOPS! THREE HOURS?!!!That’s how long it takes. So breakfast for dinner was had and the feast will happen tomorrow as well as some other meal prep to get me started on my gut healing journey. Now, we’re just lying in bed and it feels amazing to just lay down.
How are you feeling? Any adrenal or fatigue issues with you?
Thank you all so much who are watching this moment in my life and being a part of it. Those of you who are reaching out to me, I really appreciate the support and kindness.
