This morning I was not in the mood to workout.
My body wasn’t tired. I felt energetic. But mentally, I just wasn’t there.
I told myself to suck it up and used one of my favorite exercise mantras, “I’ve never regretted a workout,” to motivate myself to just git ‘er done.
For some reason I’m having a harder time motivating myself to workout on days when I am solely doing cardio. I much prefer strength training.
I think I just need a goal to help me to rejuvenate my cardio workouts. Good thing the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon is on the horizon. Once I begin training for that bad boy, I’m thinking I’ll get a little pep in my step again.
Today’s workout looked like this:
- 20 min. run
- 5 min. incline walk
- 25 min. elliptical
Around lunchtime today, I met up with Ryan at a local bank to do something BIG.
Peanut Butter Fingers got its own bank account today. The blog is growing up!
Up until this point, Ryan and I have paid for all of my blog-related expenses out of our own account, but for tax and bookkeeping purposes, setting up a separate account solely for blog-related expenses made a lot more sense. (I hope to discuss blog-related expenses in an upcoming Blog Talk Tuesdays post all about money.)
Opening up a small business account took a lot longer than I expected and Ryan had to get back to work while I continued to fill out paperwork and wrap everything up. After nearly two hours at the bank, I left with a brand new PBF card!
After leaving the bank, I drove to the realtor’s office to drop off our deposit and “key fee” (<—totally bogus charge) before heading back to the hotel for lunch.
My stomach was screaming for food by the time I sat down to eat.
I made myself the same watermelon, feta and arugula salad I enjoyed yesterday and ate it along with a Clif bar I nabbed from Ryan’s protein bar stash.
I usually save protein bars for times I need food in a pinch and today definitely felt like one of those times.
My stomach wanted calories, carbs and protein and the Clif bar delivered.
Time to cram a few more hours of work into this day. I didn’t anticipate a two-hour adventure at the bank and I feel a little behind with a project that is due today. I’m off!
