Hey Bloggies! Happy Friday!!
Hope you all have some lovely things planned for the upcoming weekend!
Don’t you love those mornings when you can leisurely wake up and slowly emerge yourself into the world, taking your time to enjoy the start of the day. Unfortunately, yesterday wasn’t one of those mornings.
I spinned, showered, got ready, went to 2 appointments, and finally sat down for my coffee. Ahhhh. It was needed at this point.
I even had a date with Flat Kitty. He tried stealing some of my Starbucks, and I wasn’t having any of that nonsense Check out Flat Kitty Friday, and get yourself one; he’s a pretty cool friend to have.
So after taking a week off from fitness, I definitely realized I do feel guilt when I miss my “gym time” and didn’t feel like I did anything productive with my day. You know what though, there are WAY more important things to life than working out everyday of my life. My family and friends get me through my hardest days and tough times through life.
The relationships that I build with these people is a lot more important and valuable than spending time in the gym. Of course I love getting in my gym time and getting my sweat on, but it shouldn’t run my life or have all my attention focused on.
*whoopsy, just purchased these pants off the lulu site yesterday. I couldn’t resist, they are so adorable*
I found myself truly missing my weekly trips to spin class, but also understand I still have exercise issues that aren’t going to overcome themselves overnight, I still have a lot to work on in that sense. I definitely need to learn that relaxing is okay every once in a while and finding the balance between healthy and obsession.
With all that being said, I jumped back into my workouts this week.
This week I am all about getting back into HIIT. I love the shorter workouts and the intensity, but I’m thinking I may still need to be backing off on the intensity of my workouts. I’m going to see how I feel after this week and if I’m still feeling tired I’ll change it up.
Spin was done Tuesday and Thursday. It was nice to get my spin groove on and jammin’ along to those tunes that were playing during class. There was great music this week, which is always a plus!
I love doing my HIIT workouts while watching some Real Housewives or The Bachelorette, I don’t feel so guilty for watching it this way and it takes my mind off the pain I’m experiencing
This morning, before breakfast I got my sweat on and completed this workout of mine:
Phew. My arms are now dead.
There’s nothing better than getting your workout in before most of the world has yet to get out of bed, don’t ya think?
With that, I’m off to get some errands done.
Enjoy your weekend all!
Any plans for this coming Father’s Day?
