I feel like each spring, we have a warm weekend and everyone thinks that spring is here and winter is over and really, we’re all a bunch of suckers. Today was cold and well, just cold. I know that it snowed in other parts of the country so you might not feel sorry for me, but I don’t think it got above 40 degrees here in Georgia and that’s not factoring in how cold the wind made it feel. Or maybe I’m just a huge wimp. Probably that.
I did not want to go to the gym after work and was wavering back and forth and finally decided to suck it up and headed into the bathroom in my office to change into my workout clothes. And then I realized that I forgot a sports bra and even if I didn’t run, the bra that I had worn wasn’t going to cut it at the gym.
So I went home instead. I briefly thought about putting on a sports bra and going to the gym by my house, but I just didn’t. Instead, I made a simple dinner of salmon and swiss chard.
Back when I first started eating fish, salmon was one of the first fish that I liked. I didn’t really know how to cook at that point, so I would simply season it with Adobo and stick it in the George Foreman until it was cooked through. And you know what? I still think this is a really great method to cook salmon. Just make sure you don’t overcook it.
Sometimes I can be pretty obsessive about going to the gym. I normally take two rest days a week, but if I skip a third day or don’t go two days in a row, I get a little panicky. I don’t know why I think I’m going to spontaneously combust (or more likely gain 50 lbs) from skipping a 35 minute workout here and there. I try to plan my schedule so I can go to the gym on all my free evenings and I take rest days on the nights that I have plans, but sometimes, like tonight, I just don’t go. And that’s okay! I need to learn that and to learn to enjoy just having an evening off to do nothing. I’ll go to the gym tomorrow.
