Day 283 - Monday, Exhausting Monday

I actually had some energy this morning.  I had enough energy that it definitely counts as the highlight of the day.  I went upstairs three or four times this morning.  Before, once I was downstairs, I was down for the day.  I really like this new level of energy.  And, it lasted all through the morning and most of the afternoon.  Then, I went to the gym.

I had two really good classes back to back.  In the muscle challenge class, she pushed us really hard tonight.  I'm frustrated though.  Since the class is only once a week, I'm not able to increase my weights like I used to.  I have to figure out a consistent strength workout for later in the week.  I've been experimenting with a few different things, but I really need to settle on something and be consistent.

Then, yoga was really intense as well. I remembered to bring my yoga socks, so my feet didn't slip on my mat.  It sounds like a simple thing, but it really does make a difference.  I was able to hold my poses a lot easier tonight, and did the down dogs a lot longer than normal.  I'll count that as progress.  But, when class was over, I was completely exhausted.  I manged to limp into the house and collapse in a heap.  It's a good thing Steve made dinner tonight or I'd still be quietly whimpering to myself.

So, overall, it was a great day.  I'm tired, so as soon as I post this, I'll be sneaking off for an early bedtime.  If I was more patient, I'd go in the sauna first, but I just can't wait that long tonight.  Hopefully, tomorrow I'll be able to get in the sauna.  That always makes me feel better.
