That’s right. A little manual labor and heavy lifting is quite the throwback workout. I should know. I’ve been doing it since about 11 this morning… stopping only for snacks, or to buy more packing tape. Yowsa. So, yeah, I wasn’t able to fit in that Bikram class today. I was holding out for the run, but rain (and pure exhaustion) deterred me. While I didn’t get the workout in that I intended, I definitely got in a workout. So I feel alright about that.
Tonight holds more packing (argh, it never ends!), and since the kitchen is now packed away… a Kashi pizza and salad. This week should be pretty boring in terms of eats, but I did pick up a little fruit and some baby carrots for work. I’ll barely be getting in my 5/day, but it’ll have to do for now.
I’ve noticed that when things are hectic, there are certain things that always seem to take the back seat first. For me, exercise goes out the window when my time is super crunched. The last thing to go is sleep. I’m a good sleeper – even on nights when I think I’m “not sleeping enough” I’m still getting at least 6 hours. Eight hours is superb for me. Ideally during the week, I’d like to hit the hay around 9:30 (I said ideally, haha) and wake up at 5:30. The early wake up is huge for me since I’m remarkably productive in the early morning hours.
What about you? What’s the first thing in your healthy life to go when you are really crunched for time?
