I’m so happy that tonight is a rest night

I’ve been loving being back at the gym, but I’m definitely ready for a night off.

Week has been going pretty much to plan.

Sunday I did TRX, Monday Couch to 5K, Tuesday Zumba, and then TRX last night.

I go back and forth on going to Zumba tonight, but I’ll see how I feel.  I have to admit that going home and reading in bed sounds like a nice plan, but one of my favorite Zumba instructors is subbing tonight so it tempts me to go.

TRX has been going well and I feel empowered (and extremely tired) after doing it.  Calling my muscles “fatigued” after TRX would be an understatement, but that is what I’m looking to do.

Already after two weeks I’m seeing a difference and can definitely do more than I could the first time.

I also feel like I’m sleeping better now that I’m exercising regularly again.

I do need to get back to my 10 PM “bedtime” on weeknights.  I know that part of my morning fatigue has been that I’ve been staying up too late.  For a long time, I had a 10 PM “lights out/electronics off” policy with myself and I need to get back to that.  

All of this is helping my eating and lifestyle in general.  Last night I didn’t eat after dinner and it didn’t feel like a “white knuckle” night at all.  I can’t say that I didn’t think about having an ice cream sandwich, but at the same time I didn’t have to majorly fight myself not to have it.
