Day 195 to 201 – Cardio Circuit, Yoga, Weights and Rock Climbing
Ok…so I came home at 1am on Sunday night. I technically missed my Sunday update. I’m learning to accept the fact that sometimes I can’t walk around with a laptop or update the blog using my iphone (I can’t underline and upload as quickly as I would like). Anyhow, I’m technically doing this Monday. I’m sure I’ll be forgiven for this 😀
I had a super busy week. I did manage to fit in a great Cardio Circuit workout that was challenging and fun. I did a relaxing Yoga session the day after and was glad I did because my legs had taken a beating from all the squats and burpees. I was able to do a challenging weight workout. I increased the weights just a tad. Nothing too crazy. I might still be a bit timid about adding too much for fear of getting injured again. Last, but definitely not least…I rocked climbed Sunday for 3 hours. I loved it. I had 2 really challenging climbs and loved every second of it. I went to Rock Oasis indoor climbing gym. They have a new facility at Dundas and Carlaw. Here is their website: www.rockoasis.com
Days 190 to 194 – 5K Walk, Weights and Cardio
The reason this is a “short week” is because I’m including my workouts from Wednesday on. I already talked about the rest of the week in my past post. When the weather was amazing on Wednesday I called my mamacita and asked her to go for a brisk walk with me. We decided to go around a different area in our neighbourhood and ended up finding a nice lookout point. Saturday was my weights day. I’m still using what I learned from Bang Fitness and mixing that into my workouts. I felt it was a challenge since I hadn’t done this in over 3 weeks. Today (Sunday), was my cardio day. I did a 10k elliptical interval training session. My legs are feeling a bit tired tonight, but I’m glad I did it. I feel like I’m getting back to prioritizing my workouts.
Days 175 to 189 – Cardio Circuit, Yoga, 5K runs, Stepper and Weights
I really can’t believe I haven’t written a blog entry in 15 days! April is bananas!!! I’m now working 10 hour shifts at the school. I also started an AQ course at York University that is taking up 2 hours of my day every other day. Add to that planning a wedding and let me see…oh yeah…sleeping, eating, etc. I feel like April is one of the busiest months so far. That aside I must admit that I haven’t been working out as much as I would like to.
In total I worked out 3-4 days a week. I managed to do:
2- Cardio Circuit classes
1- Yoga class
2- 5K runs
1- Stepping session
1- Weight lifting session
I know I have to prioritize my workouts more…honestly though…I feel like I might be going through some gym blah’s. I need to feel excited about working out again. I’m probably just itching for more guidance. I need some serious motivation. Because of this, I’ve been thinking about shopping around for a new gym. I need a gym to offer more than just Zumba for women. I should be able to lift some weights and feel that the equipment is accessible to me at all times. At the moment I don’t feel this at my gym. I’ve even requested a black foam roller and have yet to see it. We have a soft white one that just doesn’t cut it. I’m sure if you read my past blogs you’ll know how much in love I am with these bad boys. Since April is so busy and this will probably continue to be crazy until school ends in June, I’ve decided to write a blog every week. The every day blog is nice, but at this point I can’t juggle it. I’ll do a blog every Sunday and talk about that week’s workout schedule and any news.
Day 173 – Yoga
I woke up before my alarm clock. When I looked at my clock it read 5:30am. Dang it!!! Even roosters are not up at this hour. I knew I couldn’t go back to sleep now. I’m just 30 minutes away from my usual wake up time. Instead of tossing and turning on my bed, I decided to do a very quick yoga session. It was far more relaxing then attempting to sleep for 30 minutes. I felt amazing and ready to start my day. The bonus was that I didn’t have to rush out of work to workout this afternoon.
Day 172 – Break
I was feeling a tad guilty for not working out these past few days. Then I realized I have a wedding to plan. My fiance and I have dedicated as many weekends as possible and some weekdays too for planning our wedding. Today’s agenda was to sleep in, wake up and bake some scones with our nephews while we babysit them, read our photographer’s contract, figure out the information that will be on our invitations, do some art activities with the nephews and cook some amazing meals together. All in all it was a busy day, but felt relaxing at the same time. Oh Sunday, why do you have to go so soon?
