That’s how I feel right now. I haven’t exercised since Friday and it’s starting to drive me a little nuts. Granted, I did a bit of walking over the weekend, and I walked to and from work each day so far this week, but I haven’t raised my heart rate or broken a sweat. I was mulling over the recent stagnant feeling while munching on dinner:
We had sundried tomato chicken breasts from Trader Joe’s and I thinly sliced a baby Italian eggplant and yellow pepper. The eggplant got dry roasted in the toaster oven and the pepper was sauteed in a bit of olive oil. All got served with a mixed greens salad dressed with homemade vinaigrette.
The chicken was okay, but I couldn’t help thinking about the movie I watched last night. The Huz and I did some research tonight on CSA shares and greenmarkets here in Manhattan. It looks like there’s one close to our apartment, but it’s a bit small and only goes until mid-December. After that, we’ll probably have to head to Union Square to pick up our local goodies but I guess that’s what I have canvas bags for, right?
For dessert, I had a small dish of chocolate and raspberry sorbet with raw almonds. Then I got the munchies just before 9:00 and had a handful of hard honey whole wheat pretzels. I tried not to get down on myself for something as simple as that, but the indulgence coupled with the lack of exercise is made me feel a bit blah.
I need to start making my food and exercise a bit more of a priority, I think. Now that the marathon is over, I have to eat and exercise for my long term health. It’s just so easy to throw responsibility to the wind, especially with the holidays around the corner and the cooler weather setting in.
To start, hopefully I’ll be out running when you read this post! Stay tuned later today for a shot of the (I hope!) healthier eats too.
How do you refocus yourself when you are feeling out of sorts?
