Days 195 to 201 – Rush, rush, rush

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 ūüėÄ

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 175 to 189 – Aprilmania

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 167 – Back Again

Day 167 – Cardio Circuit

Wowee!¬† I decided today was going to be the day I went back to lifting some weights.¬† I felt much better.¬† The pain on my neck seems to be gone.¬† Just before work finished, I dashed into the washroom and changed into my workout gear.¬† THANK GOODNESS for that!¬† I managed to make it to my class with enough time to set my stuff up (stepper, weights, etc).¬† Now, I’m no fool.¬† I know I have to take it easy after this past injury left me out of commission for a bit.¬† I picked weights I know I could lift.¬† No shame in that.¬† Taking my baby steps back into my regular workout will probably be nice and smooth.¬† There really isn’t any rush.¬† Besides,¬†today’s class was mainly cardio.¬† We had lots of burpees, plyometric squats and lunges and some arm/chest workouts.¬† I really like the instructor.¬† She’s¬†hitting the right balance of funny and tough.¬† I will come back¬†to this class for sure.
