Tuesday's Challenge

It's been a challenging day!  I got up early this morning and the lazy bug hit me so I didn't do a workout.  No Shaun T, Jillian, Beto or Husband.  Nope.  I took the pups on a walk and came back and took my time getting ready for my day.  Funny thing is that when I do this I always find myself running late.  Go figure.  Anyway,  my lack of drive is not what this post was supposed to be about.

I did find that drive believe it or not.  I struggled through the morning trying to stay awake, focus on my work, keep my 'polite' filter up and not insult anyone around me.  I know when I have nothing nice to say I should just shut up.  Today it was so very hard.  Sarcasm was rolling all around inside my head.  So anyway, while trying to control my tongue and stay focused, I found myself drifting at my desk.  I didn't mean to.  Really!  I took off my glasses and rubbed my eyes for a second and boom!  Hands stopped moving and I caught myself in a nice little dream.  When I woke...ahem...came to...I noticed no one even saw me.  Phew! Of course after looking at the clock I realized it was only about 3 minutes.  How do I know this?  I was timing a task and had been writing down the time when I stopped and started.  It was at this point that I decided I would definitely be going to the 1:30 cross fit class and I would hit it hard to build some wake me up energy.

I showed up and was not my chatty self.  This is not my regular class and the ladies there had not yet seen my 'workout only' face.  The instructor came to me and said, 'Smile'.  Man...this was a different group than I'm used to.  They are a little more uhm....I don't know....chummy?  So I put on a smile and pushed as much as I could.  I don't know where they were in the AMRAP stage but I felt like I was giving it all I had.  I ignored them as I did my thing.  I don't mind saying I was groaning like a madman when it came to the pull ups.  Oh man it felt great!  But the best part was the end when we did the breathing exercises.  It was just what I needed to get me through the last half of the day.

When it was all done and I was cleaned up I had about 15 minutes to eat a bit of lunch.  Today's lunch was just enough. And Also very tasty!

I split a sweet onion roll and topped it with mixed chopped fresh spinach, pico, and shredded cheese.

I grilled it and wrapped it for lunch.

Perfectly filling grilled sandwich and a side of applesauce/yogurt with ground granola.  Yumeh!!!

Hope your Tuesday was Terrific!!!
