Screw the Workout

A crazy schedule between interning and nannying meant that working out simply wasn’t feasible some days. There’s no way I’m waking up at 4am to exercise and by the time I arrive home after 8pm, I just want to crash on the sofa. I’ve finally adjusted and have figured out what will work best for me, so I dragged myself out of bed especially early yesterday morning. I wanted to start the week off on a positive note by getting on the treadmill first thing in the morning.

Reluctant to change out of my cozy pajamas, I put on shorts and laced up my tennis shoes. I crept downstairs and switched on the lights only to find that my brother and his friend were sprawled out on the sofas. Needless to say, my run didn’t happen. I considered running outside, but then I remembered that the roads were still icy. And that it was 15º in Baltimore. So I screwed the workout idea.

Instead, I grabbed a blanket and read for a little before making breakfast. Even after four years, I’m still not tired of eating an egg sandwich several days a week.

I cooked my egg in a small pan that is in the shape of a pig, but it didn’t quite turn out (I think it would work better with pancakes).

I have class this morning, so I guess I better go find a notebook and a pencil.

Have you ever had to change your workout plans because of something out of your control?

  1. That totally happens sometimes. I feel like it’s best to just relax when a workout doesn’t happen rather than stress about it!

    Haha that is a great pan!! The egg sandwich looks delicious. I am the same way with oatmeal. I never seem to get sick of having it almost every morning for breakfast!

    • My mom got it for Natalie and me for Christmas since we normally cooked our eggs in a too-big pan. It’s great! I have fazes with my meals…my senior year of high school, I had French Toast and two eggs every morning. I have no idea how I managed to cook all of that before school!

  3. I just had to move all my workouts back 3 days because we went to Snowshoe and they didn’t have a single gym there.. wtf

  4. Yes! I tried to completely re-vamp my workout to avoid these changes, but it just wasn’t possible. Now I just tackle the situations as the come :)

    I hate it when I have to miss a workout like that. But I gotta let it go, and take a minute and relax like you. It sounds really nice!!! Love the pig pan!

  6. Don’t feel bad, girlie! It happens to ALLLLLL of us! It happens to me a lot. I have to work out in the morning or I am too burnt out by the time I get home from work to put my rear in gear and work out!

    Lovin’ the cute pan! And yea… skipping workouts happens to me waaaay more than it should :P

  8. It sucks when you make a good effort to do a workout, but it doesn’t get to happen. You’ll find some more time one you’re more in the beat of things.

    I think the part that would annoy me the most was that I changed out of my cozy Pjs and got out of bed! But that egg sandwich looks DELICIOUS! I want one :)
