Day #220 - Mindset is to workout hard...body not in agreement...any help??
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I felt normal almost all day yesterday. I was able to eat all of my meals, drink all of my water, workout the full hour and then ...
Well right before my workout I drank a Naked Mighty Mango smoothie (found in the grocery store) it was soooo yummy, love it. Discovered afterwards it has no protein in it or very little like 2%. That was my afternoon snack. I drank it right before I left work and couldn't finish it all. So I sipped it here and there as I commuted to the gym. By the time I got 15 minutes or so into my treadmill workout I started to feel nauseous and bad again. But I prayed and kept going. I managed to finish a full hour of working out but that was all she wrote for a while after that. I was down but definitely not out. I ate dinner and relaxed. I felt better before turning in for the night. I got a pretty good nites rest, but couldn't bring myself to get up out of bed for an a.m. workout. Weigh-in tomorrow so got to get it in tonight.
I packed my lunch bag for the day. Well I should call it my food bag, because it carries more than lunch. As I type this blog, I'm eating my high fiber oatmeal and drinking my morning coffee. I have my good lunch, good snacks, tons of water and I'm ready.
My mindset is SO ready to put in some hard workouts for the next few months to help me reach my goals. Right now my body is not in agreement. How do I bring them to work together? Hmmm...that I have to pray on or do you know?
I can see myself jogging, lifting, planking longer than 30 seconds. I can see myself putting in more than an hour of hard workouts. This 48 yr old body of mind is saying are you serious?!?! But I know it's possible to get it into shape to do it and I will. I'm praying I'm feeling better all day and night so when I get to the gym I can do what "I" expect of me and my @ home strength training routine as well.
Fueling my body right today ... so it can produce results tomorrow....
