On to the rest of the day. I woke up feeling kinda sniffly. I did sleep last night, however, but woke up at 830am feeling SPLENDID (other than sniffles and itchy throat) and just wasn't sure how I could be so awake.
Ben and I figured out that the culprit was a scented oil diffuser (is that what they are called? with the pretty jar and the reeds?) I got it for Christmas and Ben set it up the other day when we cleaned... apparently it got to me in my sleep. I did not feel well at all. Very crummy-I wish that I didn't have the reaction to scents that I have but it is what it is... I am the reason your office is a "Scent Free Zone" I will take the blame-that's fine. :)
So I went to CrossFit this morning and did my baseline. I think I should say, "I attempted to do my baseline." If you don't know what the baseline is it is like your first *workout* at crossfit to see where you stack up... 500m row, 40 squats, 30 situps, 20 push ups and 10 pull ups. I made it through the first 4 ... by the pullup part I was at 14:30 mins and was about to faint. My trainer told me to take a break... when she asked if I had eaten... I realized I had not... at least not much. So... rule of this story... eat before you WOD. I am going back Thursday for the noon class. I am thinking 2x/wk for a few wks then boost it up to 3x/wk. I am excited to get going on it again but I would be lying if I said that I was not disappointed in myself. It is really hard to start back from the beginning-from worse than the beginning. Ben told me let this be a message to ourselves not to let this happen again-and I think he is right. The only way I can look now is forward. The best option is for me to be able to respect that this is where I am starting... whether it be starting over or not... this is a beginning and beginnings are not easy, especially when it comes to starting a new lifestyle change.
Thanks Mims... this pic fits perfectly!
So then I got home and we had Primal Fuel (Vanilla) with whole organic local milk... it was really quite yummy. :)
Then we had lunch which was a couple pineapple bratwurst (Which I dipped in mayo mixed with that bbq sauce) SO GOOD!
For dinner I met with one of my very best friends and bridesmaid Tove. We went to Grille 26 (the awesome restaurant) again... I had steak tips with asparagus, onion and mushroom... and balsamic glaze it was very good!
Then when I got home I was still hungry and I cooked up some scrambled eggs with cheese and my favorite salsa... some of which we still have in the fridge left over from last week! :)
So that is it. I hope your day was equally pleasing. Be safe tomorrow!
