I DID make it to my group fitness class last night, but I was completely unplugged. Couldn't focus and just was NOT feeling "in my body" or "in the moment" at all. I was sweating, but really, mentally, just going through the motions. Got home to find my husband had made a relatively light dinner, so that was a plus. Of course I followed it up with a couple of my delicious home-made cookies... so there's that.
Today there was more bad news, a light breakfast, and an offer to have pizza and watch the USA/Canada hockey game in the conference room at work. I bailed on the lunch I'd packed and indulged. Now I'm full, need to get back to work, and still feeling really unfocused. Ugh. I have 145 squats to do today for the 30-day Challenge... have done 60 so far and I intend to complete it, but that's about the extent of my fitness plans for today.
Another group fitness class tomorrow... hopefully I can rise out of this funk long enough to really participate, both mentally and physically, in that one.
Because I'm an optimist at heart, even on days like this one, I searched Facebook for something I could use to brighten my day and ease up on the negativity I'm experiencing right now. Mostly (weird day on FB I guess) all I found was some TRULY RIDICULOUS "fitspiration" images that pretty much made me sick to my stomach. I re-posted the worst offender when I got pissed.
But I leave you with these:
Essential life lessons: love unconditionally...smile often...and to fight for the life you've been given...and to live it fully in the time you're given. May we all aspire to leave a legacy of strength and love.
