I just wanted to take a quick moment to share some life lessons I’ve picked up in the last 24 hours.
Don’t worry, I’ll be quick.
It’s a bad idea to sign up for GymPact the evening before you have an out-patient surgery. Out-patient surgeries typically don’t allow you to do strenuous workouts for a few days after the procedure to ensure you don’t exacerbate the injury.
It’s an even WORSE idea to ignore the post-op care and attempt to go for a run 24 hours after your procedure. Popped stitches = owwies. But I’m not losing my $5, damn it!
If you’re hungry but don’t know what to eat, drink a Fox Barrel Blackberry Pear Cider. Fucking delicious. 130 calories. And Paleo!
Ciders [or the alcohol inside them] numb your stomach and you no longer want to eat every piece of junk food in your house.
Sweat REALLY burns when it gets into your stitches.
Seriously. Sweat + open wounds = bad idea.
That being said, I skipped my workout on Monday but went today, primarily because I didn’t want to lose money on GymPact and I needed to hit 5 workouts by Sunday at midnight. With Monday a wash, I couldn’t skip a second day.
What did I tell you? I’m motivated when I have a goal – especially a financial one – on the line!
Bon appetit, my friends!
