Back to the treadmill

I did not sleep well at all last night. I was in bed by 7pm and read till about 7:30pm. I put my sleep mask on to block out the light and attempted to go to sleep. It wasn't good. I kept hearing cars slip and slide on the slush outside.

My alarm came far to soon this morning. My usual cab driver didn't pick me up today it was a different guy and he was 20min early. I was ready but I knew my co-worker wouldn't be so we went to Tim Horton's and I got myself and her a coffee.

Got to the airport and I had a ticked but she didn't so after she put a great deal of effort in contacting the emergency numbers we have for this (which no one was answering) she got herself on the plane.

The day flew today. I had my oatmeal when I got to work and for lunch I had a Smart Ones Santa Fe pizza. It was alright but a bit disappointing. She came by with some trail mix in the afternoon which was a welcome afternoon snack.

When I got to camp I serioulsy considered changing into my pjs but instead I changed into gym clothes and headed to the gym. I got on the treadmill and tried to ressurect my walk/ job combo. Dancing With The Stars was on the tv with no sounds so I kept my focus on that as opposed to the time on the treadmill.  I've come to the realization that I quite like doing walking/ running intervals so I'm just going to keep going with that and challenge myself when it gets too comfortable.

After 30min of that I went to dinner and the pickings were slim. I didn't want pork chops or chili or pasta. So instead it was spoonful of baked beans, a handful of spinach with a bit of dressing, a bit of tomato and jello. I squeezed two quarter lemons into my water.

Tomorrow I'm going to break from my normal breakfast routing at work. Normally I get the hot cereal of the day but tomorrow I'm going to get eggs. I want to see how a higher protein meal sets me up for the day.

Tomorrow's workout will be pilates and yoga in my camp room. I want to alternate cardio with strength/flexibility.

Now I'm just going to watch Castle and then it's to bed for me.

Hope you had a fantastic Monday!!!

Shhh... Castle is my dirty little secret. He is just the cutest, isn't he? I normally watch it on line, but I'm behind a season.
