What I did last week:
Saturday-1 hour of BodyPump. I had to stop during most songs for a breather. I thought an elephant was sitting on me during the chest track. I only made it all the way through the tricep and bicep tracks. I blame still getting over the sickness. This was my first day back after a week off.
Sunday-1 hour of BodyFlow, which is a combo of yoga and pilates. It was a little better this week, although it makes me want to buy more yoga appropriate shirts. My shirt is not long enough for most of the moves when I am “reaching” to keep my junk covered. Nobody needs to see my mom belly.
Tuesday-30 minutes on the elliptical
My balance in yoga. I may have been wobbly a little but I definitely pushed myself on that track.
There really wasn’t anything major that I struggled with this week fitness wise. I was pretty content about coming back after being sick and recognized that it may not be my best week.
Did I meet my goal from last week?
I did not make it to a Jazzercise class. Tom’s schedule is really unpredictable. The times I was going to go he had to do things for the academy. Jazzercise does not have childcare (read-I don’t want to pay more for childcare), so I went to our regular gym instead.
What is my goal for next week?
To actually work out at home Monday and Wednesday. When I get home, there are so many other things calling my attention that I forget to do my ab workout. You would think I would be able to find 20 minutes to do it, but I honestly forget about it. I set an alarm on my phone to hopefully help me.
It is definitely hard getting yourself motivated after taking some time off. It would have been really easy to just stay home a few more days. I mean TGIT came back last week, and this lady has some some stuff to watch. You just have to do it though if you want to make fitness a part of your life.
How do you get motivated after taking time off?
Way to go!! The only way I can get motivated is if people push me. I suck at working out.. You’re doing great though!
Thanks! It is definitely easier when I have someone to work out with.
