Happy Monday! Wait, it is Monday, right? My mental calendar is all kinds of jacked up because I didn’t have class today…so I just casually pretended that it was still the weekend. Oops.
So here is what happened. Last night before bed I looked outside and saw two things: 1) a LOT of snow on the ground and still falling, and 2) no one doing a darn thing about it. Don’t get me wrong here, I don’t consider that a bad thing…I was really hoping for a delay so I was fine with the lack of concern about our little marshmallow world out there! After seeing this, I set my phone on vibrate and went to bed. (Side note: this was a bad decision because at five a.m. my buzzing phone scared the living daylights out of me.) At five a.m. when the text came saying school was delayed until noon (WIN!) I promptly turned off my alarms and went back to sleep. See, my classes on Monday are from nine to eleven so I didn’t have to go to any classes today!
After I got up, I watched a little TV, then ate breakfast and tried to talk myself into going out in the snow to go to the gym. At noon I still hadn’t gotten the willpower to go, then I looked at the university website and saw that the gym didn’t open until noon anyway so I immediately felt so much better about my procrastination. I ended up going around one after I sent some emails and did a little bit of schoolwork.
So after doing only strength training for a few months straight, I think my body was cardio-shocked when I started spinning again. It wasn’t as bad over break while I was at home and just walking my dog for exercise (and honestly, compared to running and spinning, I don’t consider walking to really be cardio), but when I’m spinning…completely different story.
I guess because I went to the gym to spin last night and again today (after a week of rest from spinning), my metabolism has kind of been turbo-charged. Because the hunger is REAL. I was SO hungry. Still am. I guess it’s time to get back into my regular cardio-supportive eating habits…which I don’t mind at all. It is just such a change to be really hungry again!
Speaking of food (you know, I think I’m always speaking of food…), I picked up some single-serve guacamoles from Costco before coming back to school. BEST DECISION EVER. I love me some guac, and they’re the perfect size for snacking!
I hope that everyone had a good Monday! Have a wonderful rest of the week. 🙂
Now please excuse me while I go eat more food.
