Best Decision All Week

Hey guys! Have a good Tuesday? For being such a long day, it went by extremely quick. I’m not quite sure what happened to my afternoon post yesterday, but it’s somewhere…out there…and it’s about needing coffee in a bad way and pumpkin rice pudding!

This morning I made the best decision I’ve made all week. My alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. as planned so I could bounce on over to the gym and get in a 45 minute tempo run before working at the BIC. I got up, immediately put on running clothes:

face showing is not allowed before 6 a.m. – fyi ;)

and even went so far as to pour a cup of coffee. But then I did a body check. I was really tired. And not the usual “ugh it’s 5:00 in the morning tired,” but the “your body definitely needed more time to recharge tired.” So I put down the cup of coffee, told my husband to try to be quiet, and I got back in bed –donning my running clothes – and snuggled with Niko for another hour.

Definitely the best decision I’ve made all week. Now instead of rushing around this morning trying to get from the gym to the shower to breakfast to work, I’m leisurely eating a hot, delicious bowl of oats.

And my run will just have to wait until tonight. Nothing wrong with that.

OK. Who am I kidding…I’m still late. It wouldn’t be me if I weren’t! ;)

Gotta go! :) See you this afternoon with a back to basics workout – and how I made spaghetti simple and fancy for dinner last night!

Is it hard for you to tell the difference between laziness and actually truly needing that extra hour of sleep/rest? It’s hard to tell sometimes, but it’s usually mental if you’re just lacking motivation. If I really need the rest, my body tells me I do in the form of lethargy, moodiness, and even threatening to get sick! Learn to listen to yo bod!

  1. Where’s Niko?? Haha jk ;) I know what you mean, sometimes my body is all achy and I have NO energy to do a workout and that’s when I figure that I need some rest. But other days it’s just a mental thing…like I have the energy, but not the willpower to get out there! Hope you have a good day!

  2. Oh man, I also overslept this morning. I’m chalking it up as what my body needed…but ti definitely could have been pure laziness.

  3. LOL at your ‘face showing is not allowed before 6 a.m. – fyi”

    And your oats look divine :)

  4. I will admit that I feel mostly lazy in the mornings and that’s why I don’t work out more often in the a.m. Maybe it’s because I’m not really a morning person. I do love the feeling I have when I work out in the morning though.

  5. Good for you for making the right decision for your body! I NEED to do that-I’ve been a walking zombie for the past week and I have still been working out. I need to relax and take some rest time.

    Those oats looks sooooooo good! :)

  6. I think your body DOES tell you if it needs more rest (vs. being lazy). I know I can tell that when I get up too early in the morning , I’m still half-asleep but once I’ve got the caffeine in me…I’m good to go most of the time. But there are the lazy (usually Sunday) mornings that caffeine or no caffeine, I just want to do nothing….just because I can. You made the right decision!

  7. I perpetually feel tired during the day because I get so little sleep, so when it’s there I take it – no questions asked. You definitely made a great decision!
