Day 35/36- Sometimes my body quits...


So I decided to do a combo post because it has been a little bit of a crazy two days. Not only did I manage to have my first certifiable break-down, but I realized that I have an amazing support system in place for when I do fall and need help getting back up. Believe me everyone when I say, struggling is a part of life and sometimes your body will quit on you, but it doesn't mean that your mind and passion have to. A wise friend told me today- "It isn't your fault you are injured and working through this, at least you are trying. I know you are frustrated but you will get there." I may have paraphrased her a little bit, but in my childish nonsensical way I responded- "I am not listening to you anymore, you are making too much sense". Needless to say I was having a rough day. However one thing today did teach me was that I have a friend who wants me to succeed. Anyways I just want to thank her, Sarah B. and of course my mother, grandmother, and the love of my life Alan for their support in this life change. Alan held me while I felt pathetic and told me that everything was fine and that I was doing exactly what I should be doing, man he has a way with making me feel better too. I love you ALAN! 
Alright, let's look at yesterday and today real fast:

Breakfast: Greek Yogurt with Blueberries
Snack: Apple
Lunch: Chicken with Salad and Fat free italian dressing
Dinner: Qdoba Burrito bowl: little rice, black beans, corn salsa, sour cream, cheese and Guacamole
Headed to workout at Studio3sixT for 3 hours: xOut with Virginia which is like a boot camp class, then stretchibility with Jen, and then finished off the night with Pole 1/2- I went home sore, exhausted, and feeling like I got beat up. We fan-kicked the shit out of class. I was in a wonderful mood when I was done though, hence my fitsperation for today :) 
Snack: Apple and Air-popped popcorn

Today: Day 36
Breakfast: greek Yogurt with Blueberries
snack: Apple
Lunch: Two pieces of Chicken 
snack: Celery with Almond butter (I am not the biggest fan of this, I think I might need to stick to peanut butter)
Headed to attempt working out at Studio 3sixT. I went to teach little kids modern before I headed there so in total I got in about an hour of a workout before my body gave up on me and I had to head home to Alan. I needed to cuddle and have someone tell me I was ok. 
Dinner: Alan ordered up Pizza :) So I ate a couple slices. That was about it...

All in all I feel like I have been having a pretty good couple days and today my body just gave out on me. Yet I did have a three hour workout yesterday so at least I got up and did something today. I just have to keep on going. Sarah is heading out to Alabama on Monday and I am heading down to New Mexico to visit my Grandparents tomorrow. I will be packing healthy snacks and eating well and working out while I am down there so look for updates. Thanks! 

Love yourself Always,
