A Week in the Life of Jenny: Day 4
To the right - amazing view from the porch of tonight's CO sunset!
Thursday - 3/4/10
"Running on Empty" was my theme song today. For some reason I couldn't sleep last night. I fell asleep at about 12:30am and was up at 5:15 without a chance of falling back asleep. NOT ENOUGH SLEEP FOR THIS GIRL!!! Sleep is a big part of leading a healthy lifestyle. If you don't sleep enough, or sleep well, then your performance will decrease, your stress will increase, and your organs won't function properly. All of which are detrimental to your health.
But, since I could go back to sleep, I figured I might as well be productive. So...I updated the website, prepared March's newsletter, and most importantly finished my taxes!!!! What a relief to have that done!
This morning was beautiful here in Silt, CO, so I strapped on the tennies and hit the road for a run with Ziggy. We did about 5.5 miles and then came back for a short core workout. Today should have been an off day for me, but it was too nice to not go for a run, so I took fairly easy.
Warmup + DROM
Run ~5.5 miles
4 rounds (x20,15,10,5)
BOSU Weighted Sit Up
BOSU Torso Rotations
Prone Ball Pike
Sprint on Elliptical 1min/45sec/30sec/15sec
After the workout, I cleaned myself up, had a quick breakfast then headed to the gym to teach class. The girls rocked the workout today. It was so nice out, we did the workout in the parking lot to be out in the sun. A nice change of environment for everyone. That's a huge component to keeping yourself interested in the workouts. Change = motivation when it comes to exercise.
I got a little "Daddy Time" after class. I took Ziggy and my dad took his dog, Jed (Ziggy's older brother) to some local trails and we all tromped around in the mud some.
Then, the games began. I rushed to the store to load up on groceries for the night. Tonight I had an "online training party" to show friends and clients how my online training works. After a yummy paleo meal, I plugged the computer into the big screen TV and took them all step by step through the website.
Now, about to head to bed, I just got a call from Marcus (my boyfriend whose a pro waterskier and is currently in Melbourne, Australia competing in the first tournament of the season). The open men skied today and he got 3rd in the first round. Headed to semi finals on Sunday!!! WOO HOO!!!
Off to bed...I NEED sleep!
Breakfast- 2 egg omelet with spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper topped with avocado and salsa + 3 slices of dried mango and a clementine.
Snack - Handful of almonds and chai tea with coconut milk
Lunch - Oops....totally spaced lunch today. I've been off all day.
Snack - handful of grapes and handful of walnuts
Dinner - Stuffed Eggplant (eggplant, ground turkey, peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes) + mixed veggies salad with olive oil and lemon juice + raw veggies (carrots, peppers, broccoli) dipped in guacamole
Snack- handful of almonds
Water = 90 oz.
Today was definitely and "off" day for me. WOW! I just wasn't hungry most of the day and then I was starving at night. Not the way you want to do it. Tomorrow will be better.
