Is it just me or is this the looooooongest week ever? Seriously. On Tuesday morning I thought it was Wednesday and it continued like that all week long. I am glad tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is upon us. It needs to end because I can’t take much more of this week.
I feel like I have spent a lot of time on my couch this week. I have been soooo tired. The cold weather doesn’t help at all, it’s like all I want to do is come home and get under the covers. I was able to make it Wednesday to the gym and it was a super sweaty workout. I had a bit of a stiff neck Tuesday night and it was worse on Wednesday when I woke up and it bothered me all day long. For strength we were doing strict press, I did 5 reps at 55 lbs and then moved up and did a couple reps at 65 lbs but it started to hurt my neck so I switched to front squats while the others finished pressing.
1 min- 5 dumbbell thrusters, rest of minute lunges
1 min – 3 manmakers, rest of minute burpees
1 min- 10 ankle touches each side, rest of minute bicycles
We did this twice then got a one minute rest, then we repeated the cycle two more times. Then we finished it off with a one minute plank. This was one that made me more tired than I thought. I need to remember this one because I can definitely do it again at home.
I am not sure if many of my readers know but I am a big instagrammer. Sometimes I think maybe I am an over-instagrammer? I do take A LOT of selfies. #sorrynotsorry Anyway, something super cool happened to me today and the band Walk off the Earth followed me!!!! WHAAAAAAT???? I was pretty excited about it.
I worked late tonight and was rushed to get C in time. She was supposed to have Brownies tonight but we had a voice mail saying it was cancelled. She wasn’t as disappointed as I thought and I was happy that it meant I was home for the night. I wanted to do a small workout. I got changed and opted for my Bob Marley t shirt I got in Jamaica to warm me up.
I started with some leg hangs and sits on my pull up bar. While I was hanging there I remembered that I still had my fitness circle from back in the days where I did Pilates on the regular. It’s also called a Pilates ring, or a power circle. I did a quick search for some reminders of moves for with it. I found a whole bunch including a video. I followed along with the video and it felt amazing. I felt it so much in more core. I forgot how much I loved Pilates. I think I want to do it more often. I might even take a class or two.
I have been thinking a lot that it would be good for me to do some Yoga and get my stretch on a little. Even just a mini session here and there. I have tried in the past but haven’t been able to find times that work with my schedule. I think it would be awesome to find a yoga buddy. J- what about you? You wanna yoga with me??? xoxo
I hope everyone’s week has been speedier than mine and here’s to the weekend!!
Do you do yoga regularly?
