Back in the saddle

I have been struggling with gym and eating right lately. Just laziness, work and life.

On the food side I have been struggling, work cafeteria is under renovation and they have premade sandwiches. They are amazing! A turkey baguette with brie. It's so easy to stray from the food I bring from home. I have been eating a lot more bread lately and I think that might be a source of my issues as well. I have been low carb for awhile and adding in the extra bread may be why I don't feel so hot. 

Getting back on the proverbial horse.  Went to the gym Tuesday and tonight. Today I readlly didn't want to go. Just so tired but I got off my ass and went. It was a 1 hr work out. not the best I have done and I can do better. But better to have a poor work out vs. none.

Tonight dinner was a mish mash of stuff. Chicken, half a sweet potato left over from the other night. Some broccoli or cauliflower. Threw some walnuts and chia seeds and a bit of BBQ sauce. It looks odd but it was delicious. I may have an apple for dessert. They were 3 lbs for a $1.99

I really should be avoiding carbs like bread. They always make me feel gross. I wonder if its a gluton issue/sensitivity.

Today was an epic fail for working out. this seems to happen more often then I care to admit. And the only person who is punished me. Need to figure out a better schedule for myself.
I may have to start waking up early to hit the gym. Not sure how that will fit w/ my normal morning routine.

Work out

It's been a rough couple of weeks for working out. I went back tonight. It wasn't a great work out. I could feel my calves were not happy. (pretty sure I will have muscle cramps later) But I did it. I stopped by grocery store next door and got a sweet potato. Lots of potassium. Baked in the microwave and threw on top of a salad with some walnuts. Quite tasty.

I will try to post more. I have been focusing on work. Hoping if I kick ass I won't get laid off. Who knows if that will help.
