Work taking its toll.

I’m pretty tired this morning. I’ve been working on some time-critical problems for work this week and have not been getting as much rest as I should. The stress is also taking its toll, leaving me feeling drained. When I feel like this, I go ahead and workout anyway. Working out gives me an energy boost, and I’m always glad that I did it. Don’t use stress and a busy lifestyle as excuses to not work out. Excuses don’t get you any closer to your goals. At the end of the day no one but you gives two flips about your excuses. 🙂 That may sound harsh, but it’s true.

Anyway, thankfully I finished all my projects last night, and today I only have to take a new server to our head-end and deploy it. If all goes well with that, then I’m taking the rest of the day off (and will be staying away from all computers).

Today I’m supposed to work my abs, but they are still sore from Monday’s workout! I may have to start working my abs only twice a week if this keeps up. My new ab workout is really intense, and they are taking much longer to recover than they did with my old routine. So it looks like just 23 minutes of HIIT cardio on the stair climber, then I’m going to eat and go get my work done for the day.

Have you ever seen the commercial (I think it’s for Corona beer) in which some guy is relaxing on a beach, when suddenly his pager goes off? He calmly picks the thing up, and then skips it off the water like a stone. Yeah, that’s a fantasy of mine…
