Woke up sick – muscle achiness, congestion, headache, itchy/sore eye – for the second day in a row. Dishes still piled in the sink from last night (oh, dishwasher! Where art thou?). Werewolf lost his lunchbox. Babe still teething and also congested. Dogs still unclear about proper defecation/urination spots. Rain. Nearly late for school. Babe broke fruit bowl (and in the process destroyed my precious mangoes). Bills are due.
“Hold on,” you say. “That’s just life.”
I may not muster the attack mode I generally use for workouts, but I will be running and lifting and lunging this naptime. I took a full on rest day yesterday, snuggling with Babe and watching copius amounts of Sesame Street. Two days in a row with no workout would not bode well for this FitMama or the rest of the M&M Clan. Plus I have sincere hopes of sweatin’ the nasties out and ridin’ some endorphins through the rest of the afternoon.
Nor am I taking this series of annoyances as a sign to indulge in crap eating. Not so long ago, I would have dived face first into something chocolate, forks be damned. Okay, so last night Hubby surprised me with Colbert’s Americone Dream after the monkeys were safely tucked in and unable to share. And I did partake. I partook a lot. We rarely see it anywhere plus it’s election season. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
One dalliance…and today I’m back on it. Paleo waffles for breakfast, Shakeology and black coffee for snack. Steak leftovers for lunch and pork roast with apples is already cookin’ away in my trusty crockpot. (Did I mention the handle on the crockpot lid broke off? Another point to Wednesday.) I’m downin’ my water and not even tempted by the remaining Americone Dream. (My belly’s reaction to last night’s deviance is still too fresh in my mind. Bleh.)
No lying about either (although I have been eyeing the pillows and I felt some bitterness watching Babe snuggle in for his nap). I managed to get actual chores done while catching up long-distance with my big sis and I’ve still got that workout on deck. There’s baking to be done, laundry to fold, and business plans to be made.
I just gotta finish this mug of coffee and some E&E first. A Queen’s gotta get her energy somehow.
