End of the Spark Streak

Friday, March 01, 2013

Well, that didn't last long.

I did great yesterday until I started my work out. Seriously, I planned my food for the day. I brought my breakfast, snack, and lunch to work with me. I made dinner for the children and didn't eat any of it. Really! Had a small snack, then, once my husband came home from work, I went up to our bonus room to work out to a DVD. And that's when it happened. My body was exhausted from the day before. I hadn't realized it until I tried to work out.

I switched to an easier workout, but my body kept rebelling. So I gave up. Then I was completely exhausted. But it was only 7 PM! I went to lay down anyway, and quickly fell asleep. Then, I woke up at midnight - starving! So I had a bowl of cereal and went back to bed.

OK, so now I know to schedule the really hard Turbo Fire work out for the day before a rest day.

My new spark streak starts today.

    Stuff happens, glad you kept trying. Lesson learned. I must remember this one myself.

    I had to take a rest day yesterday myself. I kept exercising through an injury and it was only getting worse so I took the day off and feel so much better. Your body needs rest every so often! Keep up the great work. I have not tried the turbo fire workout. Where did you get it?
