I searched for recipes after publishing yesterday’s post and decided on a few. I made my grocery list and went to bed feeling motivated. I assumed today would be a productive meal prepping day…
Final step count: 20,421
But it wasn’t. The day started out all right; I got up, took big kid to her soccer game, then came home and went grocery shopping. I didn’t get all the things I needed to do the prep I had planned, but I did get the ingredients for pumpkin chocolate chip protein muffins and oatmeal chocolate chip protein cookies.
I was pumped to make my muffins and cookies. They were an impulse decision, but a good one. I’ve been struggling with this protein thing because I’d rather eat cookies right? So why not make some that have protein in them?
Unfortunately, life with kids happened, and I lost my temper. I acted childishly. I got cranky and threw my own little tantrum. The half mixed muffin batter is currently sitting in my fridge, and at this point, I’m considering just tossing it. The worst part is, I skipped my workout today and now I regret it. I feel like if I’d gone to the gym, I would have been able to shake off this mood. At this point, it’s too late in the day to go without it affecting my sleep.
I’m trying to reframe it as a blessing in disguise. I’ve been sore since I started working out consistently, so an extra day of rest might not be such a bad thing, right? Maybe if I tell myself that enough times I’ll start to believe it.
I’m sure after a good night’s rest, I’ll feel better in the morning. I just need to keep moving forward. It hasn’t been all bad; despite my bad mood, I haven’t gone over my calories for the day.
Speaking of moving forward though, I need to start walking some living room laps. I didn’t realize I was so far behind on my steps for the day. Ugh.
