Ok, I only have a few minutes to spare as I have work at 4AM tomorrow. My early morning workout will have to be moved in the afternoon. I haven't decided yet if I will workout at home or at 360 fitness club (yes, I think it's time to test if I can go back to doing their circuits. AC sprain on my left shoulder).
So, waking up at 430AM was a struggle. I hit the snooze button and woke up 30 minutes after. I spent a few minutes contemplating if I should get up and workout or sleep for another hour. Working out won. I had my pre-workout snack to give me the energy to finish and complete my WOD---it's so on right now from BodyRock.TV. Holy motheroffrack was I sweating like a pig and struggling to complete my exercises. I gave my dad a scare cos I was breathing loudly (that was me just exhaling).
Anyway, I need to sleep better so I can perform better. It really sucks that I felt so worn out and my reps were blah.
On the food front, I did my grocery yesterday to tide me over for a few days. I cooked a batch of broccoli/zucchini soup for baon. I was thisclose to eating a bag of chicharon ni Mang Juan when I got home when it hit me that I was blogging about my fitness journey. Went back to my mom's room, returned he bag of chips, and drank a glass of cold water. To ward of the munchies, I kept myself busy and watched The girl with a dragon tattoo.
Weekday temptations, please leave me alone.
