I was so so so tired today when I got up. I had NO desire to work out at all, and was pretty sure all day that the most I'd do for cardio would be a walk on the treadmill. Granted, that's better than nothing, but it's a run day, so I always feel guilty if I don't do the "scheduled" workout. I did the day 4 boot camp video at school (go me) and when I got home, changed into my workout clothes ... and promptly laid down on the couch and dozed off for about 30 minutes. Oops. Actually, it was probably just what I needed because after the hubby got home, I made dinner (it was OK - nothing special and I won't make it again), then got on the treadmill and did a short run. I've been doing a 35-minute workout with two 10-minute runs (5-minute walk interval between them), but tonight I did a 7-minute warm up, 15-minute run, and 8-minute cool down. Better than nothing, right? I'm just proud of me for doing it despite being so tired. I'm not burning the calories I used to, but I'm happy that I'm getting back into a routine and not letting myself make excuses. I still don't know how in the world I used to get up at 4 to work out before I went to school.
I'm so so so glad it's Friday tomorrow. For a short week, it's been really really long. The first week back from a break is always so tiring. And we're in a weird place at school - basically, the staff is all being told that if they plan to remain at our school next year, they have to be willing to meet specific expectations and do certain things. I'm praying that some of these people will GO. We need an entire staff overhaul so so so badly. There are so many people on our campus who just are NOT there for kids. I'm not even sure WHY they are there, to be honest. They don't seem happy and make everyone else miserable with their laziness and refusal to be a part of the team.
Enough work stuff. I'm gonna find something sweet to treat myself and read for a bit before bedtime.
