Back in the saddle

Mondays are always tough after a long holiday weekend. Let me tell you, it was hard getting up this morning. Never mind that I woke up wicked late and was running around like a chicken without a head.
Today is the start of a new week and the holiday was put behind me. Despite waking up early, I did take breakfast, lunch and snacks to work today.
After work, I climbed 38 flights of stairs for the first training session for my stairclimb. I could definitely tell I am so out of shape. I have fallen far off of the in-shape wagon. I had to stop for a second after every 2 flights of stairs. The stairs were dusty and my lungs felt very sore and tight tonight. Once I got to the 38th floor, I was wheezing but now I feel better.
My mood was ok today. I tried to put the weekend events behind me. I was busy at work, which helped me forget.
I had oatmeal with raisins, cranberries and a few chocolate chips.
Ham and cheese in a whole wheat pita pocket with mustard and the ever present apple.
I felt like having eggs again so I combined them with ham, peppers, onions and cooked them in a bit of canola oil with cheese. I had two toasted pitas on the side.

  1. We had eggs with peppers, onions and tomatoes tonight! Yum!

    Great job on the stairclimbing - that is a wonderful exercise. It's okay that you fell behind a little bit, because you will be surprised how fast you will get your endurance back!


I love your comments!
