Hello! Believe it or not – I didn’t fall off the face of the earth.
As I mentioned in my last post, last week was a doozie…here’s how it went down:
Sunday: Did Core Yoga knew there’d be no time Wednesday…walked/sprinted the pup (sprinted because we got caught in the rain! ACK!)
Monday: Strength and 20 minutes of cardio….walked the pup
Tuesday: Speed work on the stationary bike at the gym, prepped as much of life as possible for Wednesday because it was busy…walked the pup.
Wednesday: No exercise. Bad meeting schedule at work (things actually OVERLAPPED this day). Ran home from work in the p.m., walked the dog, throw my pre-packed snacks in my bag, and headed to a baseball game with friends (the tix included beer and wings…and i hate wings. so I took food!)
Thursday: Another stressful work schedule day, plus a hair appointment at 4:30 and an insanely-late strength training + cardio session. My hair appointment was over early for some reason, so I got to the gym fast and busted out a circuit of my speed workout. I did 5 minutes warm-up, one whole circuit of strength, then 5 more minutes cardio, and so on and so forth for a total of 1 hour at the gym. Perfect!
Friday: Was supposed to be a speed day. I had a doctor’s appointment at 3:15 (had bloodwork done for a physical and it came back PHENOMENALLY good. Go healthy me!) so I got out of work early…went to run some errands before stopping at home and changing for the gym. Except, when I stopped at home, I ended up sitting down with the hubs and completely passing out on the couch until almost 7. Um..oops? I knew I was tired, but geeze. So no exercise Friday. Instead I walked Holly briskly, and then made baked beans for a party on Saturday, ran some more errands, did laundry, etc.
Saturday: Ran all my errands in the a.m., then headed to a pool party/cook-out all afternoon and evening. I was supposed to do a stretch routine for Summer Shape Up today, and didn’t fit it in, but I made sure the full 2.5 hours I was in the pool I was moving in some fashion. I can’t swim, so it wasn’t exactly laps, but still!
Sunday: In-laws were supposed to come over, but cancelled at the last minute, so hubs did some house work and I prepped food for the week and took it easy.
Monday: Gym is closed, and while I’m extremely tempted to take another rest day, I feel like I missed a lot last week. So today I’ll be doing one of my Stretch days for week 3 of the Summer Shape Up 2010 (as soon as I finish this post, in fact!)
Here’s how the rest of the week is (hopefully) going down…
Tuesday: Strength + Speed day for SSU 2010
Wednesday: Strength (I hated to put these back-to-back but it’s the only way my schedule works this week, what with the gym closed on Monday!)
Friday: Strength + Hills
I have one more week of Summer Shape Up, and I’ve really enjoyed the variety it has. That being said, I can tell I’m not as defined as I was when I was lifting more often, and lifting heavier…I can’t decide which I like better!
Apparently I need to keep a closer eye on my cucumber plant. Holy cucumbers, Batman!
My tomatoes are starting, and I have 6(!) baby watermelons out there as well. Jalapenos have been in for weeks, and still producing…no green beans yet, though! Or broccoli! DH and I were just discussing that we don’t think we’ve ever known anyone who grew broccoli at home. LOL I guess we’ll see if it works!
