When I got up this morning I was feeling a little unsteady but as I was home, in my bed early and got a good enough sleep it wasn’t as bad as it could have been! I was up at 6am and despite knocking over a glass of juice and having to clean it up, then forgetting the bus times were different due to the bank holiday, I made it to the gym and got a pretty decent workout in. I wasn’t quite up for a run (that could have been chaos with my fragile stomach) so I opted for a full body workout. I pushed myself until I seriously could not handle any more. I was really proud of myself for going. I used to party a lot during my time at university and I’d never work out the morning after a night out – well actually I’d never work out period. This is a massive step in the right direction for me and I’m learning that my fitness and health means a lot more to me than having a few too many drinks. I care more about fitting in my workouts than nights out and I have been criticised for that but each to their own right? I’ll have the last laugh I’m sure. I’d much rather be drenched in sweat in the gym than lying in my bed hungover.
My intake for the day was:
- Nutrigrain Granola Bar
- M&S Sweet Chilli Lentil Curls (this felt like I was eating crisps – ideal!)
- Harissa Chicken and Couscous Salad
- Risotto w/ Chorizo and Peppers
I got home from work and Brandon’s Mum had prepared our dinner for us. I was massively grateful for this as it meant I could just hop into bed afterwards and chill out. After a long day at work it was exactly what I was needing.
See; Monday’s are not so bad!
