Last night I had another great workout at Elite Edge. Monday nights are leg workouts (if you go to the Strength class). I really like their workouts because the stuff they do there is easily stuff I could do at any gym. So I’m keeping these exercises in mind for LA Fitness days in the future! I’m bummed that I only get to go to three of these classes per month because I love the legs so much, but I’m dying to try Wednesday nights (arms). I’m super sore today and it feels so good!
Workouts really take it out of me though. I really hope this post-workout exhaustion is going to pass, but I leave feeling utterly drained. It actually leaves me wondering if it’s better to work out now or to skip it if I get that tired, but I’m only working out a few days a week (last week, I worked out twice). I’m not entirely sure if it’s the activity or just getting so hot while I’m working out. I also don’t feel like I’m eating what I should be to fuel workouts, so I’m trying to fix that. Luckily, my food aversions aren’t nearly as bad this week (hallelujah!!!!!) as they were last week, so last night I was able to get some rice, broccoli, and some protein powder and milk in me after the gym. I’ve always been positive that I want to continue working out throughout my entire pregnancy, but these are really things I didn’t even think about.
Since I was beat after the gym last night, I laid on the couch watching The Bachelorette and listening to the storm. I had an extremely sleepless night and woke up feeling just as exhausted as when I got in bed last night.
I made myself some eggs and hash browns first thing this morning, but was again super tired while eating. I decided to catch up on Real Housewives in hopes of getting up some more energy and I cleaned during all the commercials since the house is a mess. Afterwards, I decided to head to the pool. I never spend more than 45 minutes at the pool, but again, I leave feeling wiped out (which is why I think maybe it’s the heat that kills me during workouts). So, now I’m drinking a tall glass of water and eating dates and cream cheese to try and get some energy up to go run errands! I’m finally going to get my toenails painted and run to Costco and Whole Foods.
I scheduled another workout at 5:30 today, but it’s one I can skip if I’m not feeling it (they don’t check anybody in, so ClassPass never knows). I need to study for my med test for my new job tonight too. I thought about seeing if Laura wants to meet up, but we’ll see how I feel this evening. I’m feeling like I have cabin fever since I don’t get much social time in and am so beat that I sit on my couch most of the time, but at the same time, I’m just too tired to do much else!
Second trimester, I’m looking forward to your renewed energy! Only 3.5 more weeks to go! Then my blog can stop being about how tired I am all the time!
