After yesterday’s somewhat stressful morning, I spent the rest of the day on the couch taking in football and relaxing. I convinced C that we absolutely needed to buy NFL Sunday Ticket (isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?), especially after seeing the only game we got during the early afternoon slot was Jets vs. Bills. YUCK. (Sorry Kara). You can buy it on Playstation 3 this year which is completely awesome. And really, the price is not that bad. If you justify it by breaking it down per week (it would be even cheaper if you broke it down per game).
So, when I spend most of the day on the couch, it usually ends up looking like this.
I have a collection of “stuff” (cat included) that I just absolutely need so I don’t need to get up. Yes, that is a bowl with an empty grape vine. I also wore my PRO Compression socks so I didn’t have to worry about being sore today, even if it is a “rest” day.
Up until a few weeks ago, a “rest” day during the week meant that I slept until 7:19, lounged in bed until 7:31 and then ran around the house like a madwoman trying to get ready in time for work. Now, I get out of bed around 7 and squeeze in a cross-training session before I have to run around the house like a madwoman trying to get ready in time for work. It works out well.
I did my favorite kettlebell routine yet again, and threw in 10 burpees, 15 push ups and 20 plank toe taps at the end. My arms were shaking, which I’m taking as a good sign. I truly wanted to do this workout (if you’re looking for a good workout like either of these, check out FitFluential on Facebook — they have a whole collection):
But just didn’t have the time (wake up earlier, duh). If I didn’t have to work (I’m trying to fix this by winning the lottery, I have a feeling it will be any draw now), I would seriously work out for two or three hours in the morning. Instead I have to squeeze as much as I can before running off to work, which also means sitting in a desk chair all day. Somedays I feel like this completely negates all the good that I do in the morning.
How do you spend your Sundays? Do you play the lottery? What’s your workout today?
