I woke up at 6 this morning, forced myself out of bed, drank coffee, took a shower and started feeling awake and energized right about the time I received an email that my 8am class would not be happening because of inclement weather. I’m thinking the fact that I was slightly disappointed could be a sign that I’m losing my mind. I just hate to get behind and have the syllabus screwed up. I like things to happen as they’re outlined to happen. I’m pretty resistant to structure change.
Another neurosis revealed. Keeping score?
I felt reluctant to pack everything up and go to the gym since I didn’t want to have to take another shower (in other words, too lazy), so I got out the Wii Fit. I hesitate to call what I did a workout, but it was movement nonetheless.
I have one major complaint about the Fit: There is WAY too much downtime. All the clicking A and listening to the “trainer” say something and clicking to something else, etc. is a slight waste of time. I will admit that I’m in a spectacularly cranky mood, but it started to irritate me this morning. I guess what I really wanted was a good workout and I just wasn’t getting it.
The Fit is fun and syncs right up with my competitive nature, but I can’t quite consider it an exercise tool. I’m thinking I need to just remember that, enjoy it for what it is and remember that taking the lazy way out never makes me happy.
I think I’ve finally found something remotely healthy that curbs the ice cream cravings.
(1/2 c vanilla yogurt, 1/2 c kashi cereal, 1/2 banana, strawberries & blueberries. I ended up dumping it into a bowl because I’m not so swift with the food preparation and overstuffed the cup. Also, too lazy to take actual picture, but pretty good at hiding, huh?)
We went to dinner at a friend’s house on Saturday night and had this for dessert and I LOVED it. It had never occurred to me that I could use something other than plain yogurt (which Jon loves and I hate). I had it last night and again this morning. I was so excited you would’ve thought I’d given myself permission to eat actual ice cream for breakfast.
