Mar 1 2012: Thursday’s Child

No gym today – still woke up at 3:30am though! Body is quite grateful for the break from gym work, it’s feeling a bit battered and worn…

Breakfast: 1 slice dry toast with vegemite (pre-walk) 1 slice dry toast, mushrooms and fried egg
Mid-morning: Sliced banana, walnuts, almonds, pepitas, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, natural yoghurt
Lunch: Salad bowl (chicken, egg, cheese, beetroot, carrot, cucumber, tomato, lettuce)
Mid-afternoon: Banana
Dinner: Salmon and salad

Plain, filtered water: 3400ml
Glass orange juice
Skinny long macchiato – no sugar
Glass milk

Ab crunches (20ish?)
1.6km walk with Marble
2.8km riverside walk to office
Down stairs Level 8 to Ground x 2
Up stairs Level 1 to Level 8 x 2
Step count – 14429

Physical, Mood etc.:
Morning – Woke up at 3:30am, mood about a 3, body grateful for gym break!
Lunch – Mood about 4ish – feeling pretty good overall, a little drained in the legs perhaps?
Night – Ended on a high note despite going a bit flat mid-afternoon

Been an interesting “day off”. Had a slump mid-afternoon to early evening. Tired, drained and could feel motivation level dropping fast. The cure was watching Biggest Loser; seeing a couple of contestants digging deep seems to have sparked things back to life with me.

On reflection I think going to the gym every day out gets to be easy due to habit – taking a day off introduces space and time to think. Space and time that negative crap can make use of if allowed.
