BIG Black Cloud

Good Morning. Sorry for those of you who logged on early and did not see an entry. I decided not to blog last night because my little black cloud turned into a BIG black cloud with thunderstorms. I was super close to being struck by lightening, just sayin’. Things are a little better now, but it’s Thursday so the light at the end of the VERY dark tunnel is in sight. Just a few hours away.

My day yesterday was not very good. Number one my wallet had been lost since Sunday when I went shopping at Lululemon. I didn’t notice until Tuesday night, and I literally ripped my entire car and apartment to shreds looking for it. Then I get to work and my patient list blew up overnight and I was left alone for the majority of the day to deal with it.  I had a million other stressors and things on my mind so yes I will admit I went in the bathroom at one point in the afternoon to cry a little. Here’s the thing, I DO NOT CRY AT WORK. I consider myself a pretty emotional person, but I refuse to let anyone break me at my job. Okay there was ONE time I did have a major meltdown and I discussed it on here a few months back, but that was the only time and I think anyone would have cracked too.

The workload yesterday was massive, but nothing ridiculous that I couldn’t handle, I was just tired, worn out, and thinking about other things which brought on the water works. I did prioritize first thing in the morning though and got a coffee. Hey, you have to start somewhere.

Finally around 2pm I managed to shove food in my face.

tilapia lunch

It was really good and well deserved. Tilapia with fiesta lime seasoning, spaghetti squash, zucchini, and a little avocado. The avocado really made the difference for me because I wasn’t starving later on. The extra fat is just what I needed!

After what felt like 20 hours later, I finally was able to change for the gym. I could’ve skipped but I thought okay, just do an hour, sweat out some stress and go home and collapse. Plus I had another cute new outfit that I wanted to wear, so the gym ended up happening.

I loved this little color combo I put together. The pants are Lululemon wunder unders, top is from BP Nordstrom, sports bra Target, and shoes are Nike Frees.

Even the back was super cute!

At the gym I put in my 30 minutes of cardio and did a little shoulder/back combo. Just some exercises to let go of the day and feel a bit of a pump.

  • Narrow bar rows, 60 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
  • Side bends, 30 lb kettle, 10 reps x 3 sets each side
  • Barbell front raise, 20 lbs, 20 reps x 3 sets
  • Delt Flys, 25 lb weights, 12 reps x 3 sets
  • Shoulder shrugs, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
  • Upright rows, 25 lb plate, Pyramid- 12 reps, 13, 14, 15
  • Bent over single arm rows, 20 lbs, 10 reps x 3 sets each arm
  • Seated lat pulldown behind neck, 30 lb bar, 10 reps x 3 sets

core bench

This is the bench I like to use for my exercises, it works your core, rather than a standard bench. Sorry I look a tad miserable…

At home I had smoked chicken and a salad. I had to use some cole slaw/cabbage mix because I was almost out of lettuce and spinach. I also threw in some cooked zucchini. Yum.

Then I ripped my apartment to shreds a little more looking for my wallet. Around 9pm it hit me that the last place I had it was BJs when I went to get gas. I knew it had to be either in the car or my gym bag. After checking for the 18th time….

wallet

Bam. Stuck under my dry shampoo in my gym bag. RELIEF!

Phoebe was happy I found it too.

yay mama found it

So something good finally happened. Hoping it is all up from here and my streak of bad luck is over ::knock on wood::

At least it’s Thursday!!!!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
