So I leave my house at 630am to start my day...do my programs at work, finalize details, am a bit stressed because we had a few last minute changes and a drop out speaker...so I took what I brought for 2 days worth of lunch and eat it all in 1 sitting (ouch...that was a LOT of pasta). Then rushing from work to go to vote, then to the bank to get my girl scout cookie money that is due, then to help set up. I leave set up 1.5 hours later to pick up the tiny one from daycare and we head to McDonald's to get dinner for the fam (another ouch)! I tried to get my hubby and I the best caloric choices (honey mustard grilled chicken wrap)...but the nice girl gave us an extra french fry and I couldn't help myself.
After a very successful event, we all went home to do homework and rehearse the 10 year old's presentation on Nuclear Energy. What an action packed day. After eating so "wonderfully," I was riddled with guilt, but was so exhausted I couldn't stay awake to workout. Bad me. Then when I woke up this morning I felt like I had run a marathon. My leg muscles were sore and tired. I mean, I did do a lot of running around overall during the day Tuesday...and I do walk a quarter mile (total) to get to and from my car, plus I use the stairs instead of the elevator (work on the 3rd floor), and I carried my sweet little one around all night...oh, yeah...IN MY HIGH HEELED BOOTS! I love my boots, and today I love them even more as I am giving them full credit for my aching muscles.
These aren't the exact boots-but are quite close
My legs were so tired that when I got to the gym this morning with full intentions of spending some quality time on the stationary bike, I had to quit half way through and change to the treadmill to do a power walk instead. So while still feeling guilty for not making the BEST choices yesterday, I did the best I could and feel that my new workout machine "the boots" at least helped a bit. It did not stop my from hitting the gym this morning though and I am going to try and get in either a yoga or Pilate's tonight as well...I feel like a good workout with some serious stretching is what this girl needs.
