So today I took a day off from the gym. Last night I got home from Zumba at 7:30 & didn’t eat dinner until 8:30… finishing at 9pm. Chris and I had to go to sleep early because he had an early flight. [I am now realizing if you don’t follow my other blog you have no idea what I’m talking about. This will soon be addressed!]
Anyway, by 9pm I was still netting only about 850 calories for the day [even though I had eaten over 2000]. What can I say… Zumba is one of the best cardio workouts I get! So I was drinking a ton of water & snacking on peanut butter & almond milk until we went to sleep. Of course I wasn’t tired. My body was amped & fueled. I hated that. It was absolutely a mistake. But unavoidable I suppose at the time.
So I turned the television on & watched for an hour. But for that hour, and the half hour that followed, I got out of bed every 15 minutes to pee. The liter of water from the workout followed by all the dinner water was finally working its way out of my body.
Awesome. So instead of being well rested this morning, I was crabby & tired. I went back to sleep & decided the world would most likely not end if I did not make my Spin & Pilates class at 8:30.
I honestly only mildly regret it. It’s a gorgeous day outside. I’ll probably take my pups for a walk, go to the park, do something. Then maybe come back & stretch & do a little interval workout or start that jumping jack challenge I posted!
Tomorrow I will be back at the gym for AT LEAST Zumba at night and possibly 30 minute 6 pack abs in the morning.
