3/13/2011 - Burning out
Monday, March 14, 2011
So, fun stuff this week. Let's start with the good.
I got a new car!!! It's a 2010 Honda Insight, which is much nicer than my 1997 Ford Explorer. I've been having a fun time playing with all of the gadgets in it, although I find myself terrified with the thought that I might accidentally wreck it.
The not so good...
I have a paper due tomorrow, which I finished, but which I don't think is very good, and one due Friday that I can't wrap my head around. The one due friday is worth a whopping 50% of my grade, in a class I did poorly in last semester. I'm terrified that I won't get it right this time either.
I worked out last thursday, and finished feeling sore form the dumbbell curls I did (90 reps total with increasing and then decreasing weight). Friday I woke up and felt fine. Saturday, when I woke up, I couldn't bend my arms. I got them working, but they were sore, and then this morning, the same thing happened.
I won't be able to work out tomorrow, which makes day #3 without working out. I don't really want to weigh in tomorrow, because I don't expect a happy sight when I look at the scale. I was over my calories burned goal for the week by 500, but went over my recommended calorie limit 3 times.
So, I persist in the hope that I can push that invisible reset button after I step on the scale tomorrow, and pick up the pace again.
Here goes nothing.
