Here’s my weekend recap:
Saturday: The morning work shift wasn’t too bad until I showed up realizing my co-worker called off….or more so just chose to not show up. I never really understood how people could just not show up without a phone call!! But hey, we all have our days I suppose. I did a lot of running around, errands, shopping, and spending money that probably should have been saved (hashtag girl problems!). I was feeling super stressed out so coming home from work and taking a me day was MUCH needed. I ended up falling asleep at 8pm!
Sunday: The second day of work, a simple morning shift with my co-worker calling off yet again. My evening was filled with some much needed girl time with Christyna though. I love having a room mate who is just as passionate about nutrition as I am.
Today: Motivation Monday includes turning the frowns upside down and trying my very best to be productive! Spring break is (technically) here, as I don’t have much to do for my internship minus the occasional journaling, visiting the preschoolers regarding nutrition, and catching up on the latest nutrition trends. As I mentioned previously, my chest has been in serious pain lately, making me believe I pulled or strained a muscle. Hopefully yesterday’s light cardio only session helped—lifting is so important to me and I CANNOT be in any critical condition right now! I woke up not wanting to go to the gym, but had no reason to say no. So a 20 minute cardio session + bis + tris = enough for me to feel good about myself. I did a little reading regarding protein intake and athletes (thanks to Gaterade Sports Science Institute research) and now am ready to enjoy this beautiful day with a bike ride!
Meeting with the coach this evening, let’s hope she think I’m on the right track. 3 weeks out and still no abs. It’s fairly disheartening, especially when my weight has just severely plateaued.
