Good Morning! Friday has finally arrived!
Any plans for this weekend? If any of my readers are in Canada, we of course have Canada Day to celebrate on Sunday!!
Backing up to yesterday, I woke up at 5 for the first time in 2 weeks to head back to spin class.
I wanted to make sure I felt much better before I put my body under the stress of spin class. And having that continual headache and sore throat for so long I definitely didn’t want to push it.
I was back at it though, and felt much better. It was so nice to get back into the class. I missed it. It’s great to have a workout that makes me feel strong and excited to complete.
I find it really helps to write down my workouts that I plan on doing during the week, and that I’ve completed. Its a good reminder that I have goals and intentions set up for my workouts, so that I can make progress in them.
If I look back and realize I’ve backtracked in progress, its most likely because I’ve overtrained my body and then I can take time off and really get back into fitness full throttle, Charlie’s Angels 2…Superbad anyone? No, anyways…
I feel more accountable when I set up workouts this way and since I tend to over exercise some of the time, writing these down helps me to realize if I am getting too obsessive and taking step backwards in my journey. This is just something that works for me, and I suggest this if you are trying to improve your fitness level.
This week in fitness:
Monday – I completed this 1000 Rep Workout from Bodyrock. I love this workout, its killer.
I changed it up a little though. Instead of doing toe touch sit-ups I completed pendulum jumps, and I did low jacks instead of leg drops. I also completed a 3 minute plank hold after this.
Wednesday – Zuzana’s ZWOW #22
My arms were definitely pretty dead after this one. With all the burpees, push-ups, and tricep dips. Plus I had done some arm work the day before, but sore = a great workout in my books! So despite feeling sore the next day, I felt great as well.
Thursday – 60 minute spinnn class
So happy to return to my favourite class!
Friday – I did this Tabata Workout that Janetha posted about a little while ago. Since I don’t have an erg at home, I did switch kicks instead of the rows.
Saturday – I have plans to do this workout.
I love my circuit workouts and I haven’t done this one in a while now. And it’s a great full body workout. Win, win.
Sunday – rest
When my alarm went off this morning, I was actually pretty pumped to get my workout in for the day. I started out with coffee while I wrote down the workout and then moved on to my fitness.
This is my “yay, I survived my workout for the day” face. I’m such a tool. Awesome.
Breakfast greeted me once I finished up.
I brought back the oats today. Voluminous overnight oats with a little bit of a switch up. I cooked oatmeal this time, added 1.5 tablespoons of chia seeds, a scoop of sun warrior vanilla protein powder, and pumpkin. Tasty.
What was your favourite workout this week?
