Hard at Work

I feel awful. I wanted so badly to do my Insanity workout lastnight, but honestly after working 12 hours a day and only getting 5 or so hours of sleep for the past two weeks I feel like I hardly have anything left in the tank.

I was dozing on the way home from work, exhausted and puffy eyed through dinner, and actually fell asleep while on video chat with my boyfriend. I decided instead of doing my "Pure Cardio" last night I would just go to bed.

I really wanted to do the work out, but I remember last "Pure Cardio" I did way late at night and it made my heart feel like it was being stabbed with a knife. Maybe I am just being dramatic, but I just didn't think it would help my mental and physical health any to push through an hour of cardio when I couldn't even keep myself awake.

I will resume my "Insanity" program tonight, with "Pure Cardio", so I will offset by a day, or maybe I will just do an extra work out this week to make up for it. I don't want to get into a habit of skipping workouts, but this week is an extenuating circumstance and I don't think I will let it happen too often once I get home.

In the meantime time I am focusing on eating healthy so when I get home ( SO SOON NOW) I will be happy  with my weigh-in. I worked really hard these past two weeks, so I expect to see at least 5lbs loss. We will see how that turns out.


  1. Sometimes when your body is telling you that it needs rest then that's what you have to do.

    Good luck with the weigh in!

  2. Good luck Ellie! I think it's perfectly acceptable to take a break now & then.

    Hoping for a big number for you!

  3. One day to let your body rest is not a bad thing! I get worried about people who push themselves when they are clearly half conscious!

    I hope your weekend gives you plenty of free time!
