I’m not sure who I thought I was trying to fool when I said I was going to go to the gym yesterday. I spent the good majority of the day on my couch. I did manage to walk Murphy and I felt mostly human by the early evening. Shots and I do not agree. Ugh. I did assemble my desk and get our office room looking pretty good so the day wasn’t a total waste.
I don’t know if it’s the lack of caffeine (I can never spell that right on the first try) or just the lack of sleep, but I was so freakin’ tired at work today. I’m not purposely trying to avoid caffeine, I’m trying to avoid soda which gives me tummy aches. Soda was my main source of caffeine. I’m not a coffee drinker and tea is just okay.
I guess because I was tired, the day seemed to seriously drag. I stopped at Publix on my way home to buy some ingredients for a dinner that I was planning to make. The plan was to wait for Jason to get home around 7, go to the gym and then make this dinner. Fail. First my dad called, just to chat so I was on the phone with him for 15 minutes. Then, almost immediately after, my mom called and we proceeded to get into a big screaming fight for another 15 minutes. Ahh, wedding planning, can’t wait until you’re over. So, by the time we actually got to the gym, it was almost 8.
To make matters worse, all the treadmills were taken and I had to use the elliptical. I managed to squeeze in a good workout. I did intervals – 2 minutes slow, 1 minute fast for 30 minutes. By the time I got home and showered, the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner from a recipe. So I had an old standby – tortilla pizza. Though, this time I switched it up and made it Mexican.
La Tortilla brand tortilla (my favorite) with fat-free refried beans, salsa, spinach, baby peppers and Mexican cheese. It was good, but I prefer a traditional tomato sauce and mozzarella pizza.
I think I’ll hit the hay so tomorrow’s not a repeat of today. Good night! Do you need caffeine to function in the morning? Ever broken the habit? How long does it take not to feel like a zombie.
