Have you ever returned to work after a vacation and after just one day back at the job you feel like you need another vacation? That’s the kind of day I had yesterday. I started off the day with a large number of tasks that I wanted to accomplish, but in reality most of my time was spent putting out fires. Now I’m even further behind than I was yesterday. I was working downtown all day yesterday, and I have to admit that I missed my workout. When I got back home I had to work until around 7:30 PM just to get to a stopping point.

I normally never miss a workout for any reason, but after two weeks off from work I felt like an exception was in order. I think I made the right choice. That said, I’ll be making up yesterday’s back/rear delts workout today. I love my back workout, and there’s no way I’m going to skip it.

Despite yesterday’s crazy schedule, my meals were spot-on. I packed a cooler and ate each meal on time. A lot of people struggle with their meals, but if you plan ahead and adapt your diet to your working environment it’s not that difficult to eat right. Of course sometimes things spin out of control, so quick “backup” meals should always be available to you. For example, I always keep a shaker with some Nitrean and a baggie full of almonds in it ready to go. I’ve always got water, so as long as I keep that shaker close by I can have a quality protein/fat meal prepared and consumed in a minute or two. Another excellent quick food is raw oats. Raw oats are surprisingly tasty, and an excellent source of carbs. Protein bars are another option, just make sure to select a brand that is not loaded with crap ingredients and sugar (many are).

Well, it’s 8:30 so I’d better start trying to make a dent in this huge list of tasks I’ve got to accomplish this week. Have a great day!
