Whole30: Day 3

Holy shit, I'm tired.  Really.  Tired.  

I don't think I've felt this exhausted since I was pregnant.  Last night I went to bed at 8:45 and I woke up at almost 3 a.m. and couldn't fall asleep again.  My mind was racing. I only woke up because I had the urgent need to pee, and then I just stared at the darkness for two hours trying to go back to sleep.  It was not fun.

I googled some of the things others have tried and supplementing with magnesium seems to help.  I have some of that in my medicine cabinet so I plan to take it tonight and hopefully catch a full 8 hours of sleep.

My meals are delicious.  I had my omelette for breakfast, a salad for lunch with loads of veggies; tomato, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, and vinaigrette dressing.  Tonight's dinner was turkey meatballs and roasted cherry tomatoes.  It was amazing.  I'm loving that my taste buds are better now.  It's like I've cleansed my palette.  

I took Daley for a walk after dinner and it was super hot and humid.  I got a mile in and felt like I was just too tired to keep going.  We turned around and I made it home but I immediately took a shower and got ready for bed.  

I don't think I can keep my eyes open any longer. 

Day 4, I'm ready for you!

My Least Favorite Exercises....(But They Work!)

I've been working out consistently again.  This week I've hit the gym four days and I committed to five.  Tomorrow's Total Body session at Forever Fit will meet that goal.

Yesterday was Leg Day and we did so many squats and lunges that my body is still aching today.  I'm loving the burn, baby!

As I was thinking about ways to amp up my workout routines, I started a running list in my head of my least favorite exercises.  I always cringe when I have to do these, but the truth is, they work.  
Wall sit Stand with your back against a wall and bend your knees to about a 90-degree angle. Hold this stance, with abs tight, for up to a minute. Repeat.  Want more of a challenge?  Hold a medicine ball in your lap while you "sit." (Or, hold a glass of wine in each hand. Kidding.  Maybe.)
Triceps Dips Start by sitting on a sturdy chair. Slide off the edge of the seat and support your weight with your hands. Bend your elbows to slowly lower your body toward the floor and the…

Favorite Things: Planners and More

For the last four days, I've had no idea what day it is.  This always happens to me when Christmas is in the middle of the week.  Thursday felt like Monday, today feels like Sunday.  I'm all screwed up.  More than usual. Ha.

I did look at the calendar today and it hit me that New Year's Eve is three days away.  I love this time of year.  My favorite part of a new year is getting a fresh start on everything.  And because I'm a total geek, I get super excited about buying a new planner and writing all of the things in it.  It's just so much fun for me!  There's something about those crisp, new, blank pages that thrills me.  
Yes, I know I need to get a life.
This year I've added a new planner into my rotation of things to help me stay organized.  Y'all know I love the Commit30 planners and I sing their praises, but I recently discovered Habit Nest and fell in love!
Over the last year, I was very consistent in waking up at 5 a.m., heading to the gym and ge…
