I thought that booking a slew of vacations for 2013 on Christmas Day would make me want to work harder. That I’d want to make more money, hit the gym every day, a avoid spending as much money as possible in anticipation of time spent away from home. It totally hasn’t. This has nothing to do with the Whole30, but it has a whole lot to do with my state of mind right now – even though I’m 2 weeks out from Inaugural weekend in D.C. and one month out from Bali, I have totally checked out already. Work seems like a chore, bills just don’t want to be paid, grocery shopping has lost its appeal, and I can’t stop myself from window shopping for vacation clothes. Last night, I dreamt so vividly of beaches that I woke up expecting a sunburn. Clearly, I need an intervention.
7 hours. Not as much sleep as I’d like, but what I got was really high-quality. The past two mornings, I’ve woken up in the exact same position I fell asleep in (which almost never happens).
CrossFit today consisted of deadlifts followed by 6 rounds of 200 m sprints, 14 – 20 lb. ball slams, and 7 burpees (every 4 minutes). I lifted the heaviest female novice weight today – 90 kg. Boom! Work was slow, but I walked around for 8 hours nonetheless, so I’ll count it.
Breakfast: the last of the breakfast lasagna I made last weekend, plus a banana
Lunch: bun-less burger with avocado and an over-easy egg
Dinner: chorizo sausage scramble with broccoli, sun-dried tomato, and artichokes over a pile of spaghetti squash
I really don’t like going to work right now. I don’t know what it is, but I’m simply not feeling it. Maybe I’ve settled into vacation mode a little early or maybe I’m just burnt out. Either way, I have a strong feeling that I’ll be listening to my “chill out” playlist while setting up shop for the next couple of weeks.
