No training again today, I just didn't have the energy. I am finding it hard to work out a viable routine for fitting the training that I want to do around this contract. If I want to train in the morning I have to get up between 4:30 and 5 am, which even though it's kind of natural to me, leaves me quite tired by the end of the week. I can't really fit in eating beforehand, so I know that I'm unlikely to have as productive a training session as I could later in the day - and so far I just can't face Jillian at that time. On the other hand, I've always been an early bird when it comes to dinner so I'm hungry when I get home, making it difficult to train straight after work. And of course waiting to feel like training after dinner gives me time to get busy with other things / comfortable and makes it less likely that I can find the motivation to get on with it in the evening. I can't believe how hard I find it to fit healthy living around work - clearly I need to be fabulously wealthy so that I can train when and how I want to without all this other stuff getting in the way. Now what did I do with that lottery ticket...???
I didn't train or walk today. I've decided that its time to formally introduce a proper rest day every week as I'm prone to forgetting for a couple of weeks at a time - and if I'm ever going to get more consistent with the resistance training this will be even more important. So, rest day = Friday from now on!
Breakfast: All bran with berries
Lunch: Innocent Veg pot - Mexican sweet potato chilli & lite bread with LC
Dinner: Bean burgers & salad – the salad was an odd concoction of home-made coleslaw, lettuce & cucumber, with raisins and blanched broccoli & carrots (because I don’t much like them raw)
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with granola; Greek yoghurt with summer berries
