Wow! Can we believe I have actually made it to see the 2-week mark?! I am so proud of myself!
Today was a pretty good day. I felt pretty good overall in the beginning part of the day. I started to get bloated about 4:30pm, but just for like an hour or two. My mouth was about at a level 2/3 - 5/6 today. After the bloating, my stomach started rumbling some, then got some twisted and I didn't feel the greatest. I worry a little about the food I made yesterday. I know it was all food that's supposed to be okay for me, but there are so many foods in all of that and I just am not sure that my system is ready for it all. I will keep my eye on this in the next few days.
I took the day off from working out, as we helped our friends move. We took our dogs for about a half hour walk when we got home. I like taking about 1-2 days off from working out/week. More than that, though, and I'm usually pretty antsy! I keep myself very busy with my workouts each week.
I do something on Sunday nights that gets me "re-motivated" for the upcoming week of workouts. I like doing this on Sundays, too, because typically I don't workout on Sunday, so I'm extra motivated for Monday to come. I make a "Weekly Fitness To-Do List." I write this down in my food/workout journal. This way, I keep myself accountable and on task! And, because I love lists so much it's satisfying to create as well as check off when I've finished the task!
So, here is my "Weekly Fitness To-Do List" for April 27 - May 3:
- Full Body/Circuit
- Full Body/Circuit #2 OR Misc. Weight/Circuit
- Misc. Full Body (Ball, Band, Cables)
- Yoga - Tuesday - Neera
- Abs - Tuesday - Sallie
- Abs - Thursday - Sallie
- 20 min. HIIT
- 20 min. HIIT
- Cardio: 25-45 min.
- Cardio: 60 min. - San Francisco Run
- Spinning - Monday - Christina (30 min. only)
- Park Workout
- Park Workout #2
Keep in mind that I do 1-3 of these/day AND that while keeping this realistic, it's always typically above what I complete. For example, realistically I know I'll be in San Francisco staying 2 nights this week, so I'll get a long run in there instead of an extra weight training session. And clearly this is above and beyond what I'll actually accomplish this week, since I will be in San Francisco for 2 days. That being said, this past week, I only missed 2 of my planned workouts! That's phenomenal for me! I'm so excited for my upcoming week of zen, yet active and challenging workouts!
