Monday ~ okay a small tick!

I just don't feel it mojo has been crushed and I'm struggling to find it again.
I will....but being the sensitive person I am ~ things effect me on a deep level...
I know training will help...but cant get myself motivated to sweat...
So as I am tired after the long weekend with late nights and my 7 km run yesterday
I took it easy today.....not out of choice but by listening to my body
I still did something, but as the something is a lot less than what I normally do it feels as if I've done nothing...

Today I did 200 sit ups
4 sets of 10 push ups ( bare with me as writing it down makes me feel I did do something )
4 sets of 10 triceps dips

I went out for an hours walk with my camera this afternoon....wore my HR monitor
Burned 142 calories at 60% fat ( a positive )
HR was a low of 78 - 96

The weather was PERRRRRRFECT....sunshine and warm....
I loved being out in the fresh air..
I hope tomorrow I'll have more energy as I train mommy in the morning.
Today gets a little *tick*


  1. I wonder why we get this way- I try not to post negative on group- but today I don't care- I am burnt out feeling and exhausted!! Good for listening- Maybe my co-worker run cancelled tonight is a sign for me to rest? I like seeing the pix- is that the almond butter?

  2. Peanut butter, the organic version, ingredients are only peanuts!

    I can feel I needed a break today...u worked out like a mad woman this, so you must be tired as well.

  3. Glad you are getting some nice fall weather there. I know how much you enjoy it. We are drowning here - hahaha. Glad you took an easy day and are listening to your body. Some days we need that. You'll bounce back.

  4. To me it's still a big tick Marcy. It's a good thing you listened to your body and took it easy today. When it's not raining in Autumn it can be very pretty outside.

    I'm going to the forest next Sunday. Bella has a date with two other doggies and we will walk and let the dogs play with each other.

  5. Sounds like I would like some of your beautiful weather...another rainy day...and more cinnamon buns in the oven. (I WILL NOT eat one....promise;)

    Happy week to you...
    (I tried doing 200 sit-ups....ummmm...not quite there yet. Good for you!!!!!:)

  6. Sometimes taking it easy just makes us come back that much stronger, good for you for listening to your body Marcelle.
    Oh and thank you for the award ;-)

  7. I hope you are having lovely weather today like me. Not a cloud in the sky. Have a WONDERFUL day!
