So I slept it off and went to work. I knew after work I was going to get on the bike, because I had too. Well at work, I almost wasn't going to be home in time tonight. My teammate who was suppose to work, called off and I wasn't sure I was going to have anyone to cover.
I kept saying over and over in my head, I should have done it in the morning.
BUT, fate was on my side and someone was able to come in and close and I got out a decent time. Work is crazy hectic this week because of Mother's Day and I am trying to fight through excuses and being tired. Believe me, I would have wanted more than anything to just come home and chill out, but I came home had a quick snack and then went to our little gym and got on the bike for 65 minutes.
The longest I have ever done on the bike. I burned close to 400 calories and I rode about 13 miles. I felt it in my legs for sure afterwords. I also met a friend too. She is working out and works out every day, hoping to find a buddy to motivate me at our little gym. I brought my Nook with me while on the bike, seriously sometimes its the only time I can fit in some reading.
While I was there, I realized how much I need exercise and enjoy it. I feel great afterwords and it really is just me time. I don't have to deal with work or my boyfriend, I focus on myself and my goals and desires. I can just take in my life and for an hour or longer, it is for once just about me.
The love life is on the rocks lately, the boy and I are just not grooving on the same paths of our journeys. I know if its mean to be it is meant to be, but my path is paved different than his and I don't think we want to walk it together. So exercising is really letting me clear my mind, while we are trying to work all this out.
After my bike ride I was starving. I mean STARVING. I knew I still had some stuff to do before dinner, so I ate a Quest Bar before and it definitely helped. So the day that almost didn't happen, happened and I am so glad it did.
But I learned my lesson, I should plan to workout in the morning, lord knows what my day will bring!
Oh this heavenly drink has become my go to drink in the morning and mid-afternoon. Every morning I have a cup of coffee that I bring from home and then before the store opens or a mid afternoon pick me up, I have been having this...
Its a Venti Unsweetened Iced Green Tea with 2 Splenda and 2 pumps of Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup! Holy Yum and Refreshing!!! I am obsessed with it. Something about that extra little vanilla kick really does it. Green Tea is so good for you and I can feel a difference for sure with energy. So instead of grabbing some coffee I have been turning to this oh and the banana in the back ground :0)
