By 2 PM, I realized that I had failed at everything I tried to do today. But instead of getting down on myself and thinking about my shortcomings, I decided to pull a Charlie Sheen and focus on the WINNING.
I planned on waking up at 7:30, but pressed snooze 3 times, making my real wakeup time 8:00. My breakfast of champions happened shortly after rolling out of bed.
|Toast with cream cheese and blueberry jam, toast with egg puff and hot sauce, and a bosc pear.|
After a leisurely breakfast, I sat down at my work station and, instead of working on the paper I had planned on finishing, caught up on my blog reading.
|Having books nearby made me feel better about my slacking.|
Yoga with fatigued muscles is nearly impossible, so instead of trudging through it, I took the opportunity to “listen to my body.” It was saying, “If you force me to keep going, you will never again have the opportunity to win anything.”
I couldn’t wait until “lunchtime” and had a second breakfast.
|Nutella makes my world go 'round. Paired with a banana and large bowl of Chex cereal, this was one of the best lunches I've had in a while.|
Acknowledging my vampire-like complexion, I made my way outside for some sunlight. Shortly after laying down, I found myself pouring with sweat as the vein on my forehead throbbed from the heat. Rather than thinking of my attempt to tan as a miserably hot, 30-minute sweat session, I like to think of it as body cleansing meditation.
With a much needed shower complete, I plopped myself on the couch for some R&R. Watching a movie is fail-proof. This needs no explanation.
Immediately following the movie, I ate this little number:
|Rots and cottage cheese|
But alas, my mid-afternoon snack was not filling enough, so dinner was especially delicious.
|Chopped salad and spaghetti squash with grilled chicken breast|
After dinner, I randomly started feeling a little stressed, so I channeled my inner Adonis and extra aggression into sprints, push-ups, and sit-ups, followed by a 30-minute walk with Mama.
I topped of the night with a vanilla protein shake. What a great reward for my hard work out on the road.
|This is a WINNING face if I've ever seen one. This would pretty much secure me an internship with Mr. Sheen himself.|
In consideration of all of today’s events, it's clear that I have tiger blood running through my veins. Yes friends, I am winning.
