Today is my first of two consecutive days off from work. Just because I’m off from work doesn’t mean I’m being a lazy fuck, though. In addition to getting out to the gym today, I have a full docket at home. There is much cleaning to do around the house, including a battle against a life-size replica of Mt. Doom made entirely of dirty laundry.
Breakfast (at 2:30 PM, because I was so busy cleaning my desk area I forgot to eat) was an awesome green smoothie. Spinach, blueberry Greek yogurt, milk, and a banana. Simple, and very tasty. I find that a smaller breakfast works better than a larger one for me. Don’t get me wrong–every now and then, I love waking up and demolishing every breakfast food known to man. For most mornings, though, a bowl of cereal or a smoothie works just fine.
I’m slowly getting it through my thick skull that, if I want to be in top shape for Tough Mudder, I can’t rely on exercise alone. I’m going to need to change up my eating habits. I’m a big fan of the “if I don’t buy it, I can’t eat it” method. Maybe I should just spend time throughout the week making a “healthy” grocery list? It’d be a lot better than the method I have now, which is to go to the store as soon as my paycheck hits the bank and buy the things I want at that moment, with no regard to weekly meals, health, or even logic.
Today is a B-day for SL5x5. I’ll be updating my Fitocracy page post-workout–be sure to check it out!
