I wasn't feeling great today. The crappy food from last night made me very sluggish, and then some personal stuff happened. Anxiety/depression rears its ugly head.
I didn't feel like being around people today... so I did Bob's Weight Loss Yoga instead of going to yoga class. Bob always makes me feel better. I also watched Mr. Rogers for about an hour. Seriously, lol.
In the evening, I went swimming at the gym... just doing some laps and letting the water ease away my tension. I got into the sauna for 10 minutes to sweat out some toxins. I feel better. Accomplished.
I'll be ok. I'm pushing through it. Getting this down in writing might actually be helping me to avoid eating my feelings. It's okay to feel bad, I don't need to be anxious about it, or try to suppress it with food. Some days just suck, and that is life. Tomorrow will be better.
Weekly Fitness Goals (Jun1-Jun7)
Full-Body ST: 1/2
Sprinting Intervals: 0/1
Light Cardio: 4/4
Breakfast: N/A - I wasn't hungry due to last night's large dinner, so I made this my weekly intermittent fast.
Lunch: I used leftover meat sauce from my freezer to make Gluten-free Butternut Squash Lasagna. I used eggs, organic mozzarella, and grana padano cheese in place of ricotta (I can't handle soft cheeses), and butternut squash rounds in place of noodles. Very yum.
Snack: Leftover vegetable soup. Hard-boiled eggs. Almond milk. Kimchi. Strawberries.
Dinner: Roasted herb-rubbed pork loin with apple/onion sauce. Creamed Spinach (I got a beautiful bunch of local spinach in my CSA last week that I needed to use up before my next bin comes on Thursday. I used this recipe: tinyurl.com/43lmf
Recipe for Success:
Do something today that will make you feel good tomorrow.
Be kind to yourself.
