Friday evening I went skiing with some of my students, and a couple friends. We all had a great time, but I was exhausted! I skied for about 4 hours, plus tramping around in those boots trying to get everyone on the bus for the ride back... yikes. Add all that to the fact that I didn't get home until 3 a.m., and I think you can understand why I was completely wiped out this weekend. Unfortunately, that meant I didn't go to the gym for about 4 days straight. Boo. Taking Thursday off to prep for skiing and make sure I didn't overwork myself was intentional, and of course I didn't go Friday since I got a good skiing workout. Saturday I didn't leave the house - too tired! - and I was expecting that. But Sunday I should've been back on track, and I didn't make it. I was a little disappointed in myself, because I think a mid-afternoon workout, even an easy one, would've given me more energy yesterday (I was SO lethargic, all day), but that's ok. I've moved on, forgiven myself, whatever. And I was completely back on track today! It took some willpower, but even though I came home after work instead of going directly to the gym (my usual way of "tricking" myself into going), I DID manage to convince myself to trudge back out in the awful snowy weather.... and I feel great because of it. Yay!
