I’m done whining now.
Tuesday’s over and you guys can come out of your hiding spots.
I swear it’s safe.
I’m even in a sort of good mood. Believe it.
Must be because I actually had a productive workout last night. One where I didn’t feel like jumping off the elliptical mid-workout to run home to dive under the covers. And that’s a win. 25 minutes on the elliptical and 25 on on the stairs before retiring back home for some Jillian Yoga Meltdown.
You know I’m not very loving when it comes to yoga, but it’s all for the sake of switching it up a little or adding something new here and there. Especially since my core is often ignored on the regular. Even if I did only 2 of the 3 circuits because I was pressed for time, it was something new and appreciated.
My mood also lifted a bit when I trucked it with the roomie to go pick up our participation packs for the
debauchery long-awaited Twelve Bars of Christmas (TBOX) pub crawl we’re participating in.Really, it’s just another excuse for us to dress silly and run amuck in Wrigleyville with all the other hooligans. Much like we did for Halloween and every other Wrigleyville Block Party. What can I say? It’s all in the spirit of the Holidays…
Oh… and I grocery shopped. It’s possible that part of my mini depression was due to lack of cereal and peanut butter.
Don’t discount the theory. I’m gonna look into it. Most likely by eating ample amounts of both. I’ll let you know what happens. Other than the enlargement of my backside, anyway.
Until then, I shall continue on my path of semi-clean eating with a random version of a veggie wrap:I say “semi-clean” because it seems pretzels were my crutch for getting through the entire afternoon.
But looking past that, this asparagus and mushroom wrap with mozzarella was quite filling. The tortilla was massive- I know it had a lot to do with that. Because let’s not lie- asparagus goes right through you and straight to work on making your pee weird.
There’s no way to sugar coat such things. You know it. I know it. We’ll acknowledge it and move on, shall we?
To sum it up, yesterday I worked hard on not letting winter blues set in by doing the following:
1. Changed workout routine. My abs/core were clearly getting ignored. And a happy tummy makes for a happy Amy.
2. Drinking in the cold in the name of Christmas. I’m a giver. And giving makes me happy.
3. Shopping. Even if it’s food, it’s credit card cardio and it counts. Being poorer does not make me happy, but a stocked refrigerator does.
4. Eating healthy things that make your pee weird. Veggie detox? All in the name of a healthy holiday season. Happy happy, freakin’ happy.
That sounds about right.
