While all the resolutioners crowded the gym, I stayed at home and rode the stationary bike for 45 minutes. I actually had plans to go to the gym, but I wasn’t feeling great and was pretty tired from not a great night of sleep. It was still a good workout and I finished with my legs burning. Actually, my shoulder was still sore on Thursday, so it was a good idea to stick to mostly leg exercises anyways.
I woke up feeling refreshed and healed on Friday and ready for my Friday morning workout. Nouha met me and I guided us through an intense kettlebell workout. To mix things up a bit, I performed all the moves on the bosu to offset my balance and keep my body guessing. I topped it off with a bit of cardio, jump roping and sprints on the treadmill.
Saturday, my friend Stephanie was up for the weekend, so instead of a regular workout, we went into the city and walked around. Combined with some shoveling later that night, I got my daily steps up to 18,500 and was quite pleased with myself.
Feeling kind of sore from the walking and shoveling the night before, and full from lunch, I settled on a long walk with my mom and the dog then some gentle yoga to relax before the long week ahead.
It was back to the grind on Monday for the regular morning workout. I met Nouha to start off with a body strength workout before taking it on the treadmill for a run.it’s actually easier for me to increSe my speed on the treadmill because it’s flat and I change it up every five minutes to keep from getting bored.
On Tuesday, Nouha and I finally made it to the cycling class we have been trying to do for over a month now. The timing hasn’t worked out before then, but it was worth the wait. After, I went up to fit in a body strength routine.
It wasn’t until later that afternoon that the shakes carried on for a different reason. I had no appetite for lunch and then I felt nausea creeping in. The second I got home from work, it began apparent why. Not fun! It’s enough to warrant a rest day at the gym this morning so I can try and sleep it away.
