A Case of the Mondays

Why are Mondays so bland, blah, and boring? If this day of the week has to be the start of a work week why can't it be more exciting? I have never heard anyone say, "I can't wait for this Monday!" Even Tuesdays are better than Mondays and all Tuesday has going for it is that it comes after Monday. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. I'm not even working this summer and I still have the case of the Mondays. 

With that being said, I have to confess that getting my butt out the door for spin class was a testament to my will power. When my alarm went off at 7:45 this morning my brain started to think of reasons not to get out of bed. Once I told my brain to shut up, I just started going through the motions and some how walked out the door and got in my car. 

I'm a firm believer in going to exercise classes or the gym with a buddy. Knowing that a friend was going to class made me move this morning. If she could do it, then I had to as well. This blog also made me feel accountable for my actions. I knew I needed to write an update and that some people would look forward to reading about my work out exploits. So I got a move on for all of you and for me!

Today's workout was tough after being away for the past week. About 40 minutes into the workout I got really sick to my stomach. How do I stop that from happening? I drink water when I feel the need to and I make sure I eat just a tiny something, not a big something, before going to class. At the 40 minute mark I all I could do was pedal along at slow, slow pace instead of participating in the final few sprints of the class. And my head hurts because I must not have had enough water intake even though I managed to drink an entire bottle of water instead of the quarter of a bottle that I usually drink. I guess some research needs to be done on my part to solve this problem.

Next Monday is only going to be worse since I have to miss Wednesday's spin class because of my cat. I have to be at the Humane Society by 8 a.m. so he can get neutered. I was not pleased that the earliest appointment I could get fell on a Wednesday morning. Oh well, his health is important too.

If you haven't gotten any activity in today go do it! If I can, you can too.
