Welcome to Monday. It was the first Monday since I have been better and I had a plan to follow. So how did I do?
Well I didn’t go swimming like I said I would. I had a small coughing attack in the morning and just couldn’t get up in the morning. So swimming just wasn’t happening this morning.
However, I made up for it during my lunch. But before I get into that…lets get into the Weigh In!
Look who is done with coughing and feeling sick! This girl! Yay me. Ok in reality I still have a little bit of cough but I am not going to let that slow me down any more. It has been a week since my last workout…well almost a whole week and half really.
However, I am so backed up in laundry that it hurt just looking at it. Plus then it was Food Prep. I wanted it to be easy next week so I went to Fresh and Easy (favorite place) and got 4 of their 2 for $10 ready meals. Basically it has the chicken or meat already done with the flavor or herbs and you just cook it!
I also got some veggies sides that will be easy to make. Oh and I found a new bread that I can’t wait to try. It is a wheat bread with Chia and Flax seeds made in. I think it is going to be yummy but as I haven’t tried it yet I am not sure.
I feel that since I have been sick and haven’t been watching what I have been eating. Plus those soups have TONS of sodium, even though I tried to water them down. It is time to just re-clean out my system.
So I got my Food Prep ready, My Cleanse ready to go for Monday – Wednesday, now it is time to go for my Workout Plan.
My Workout Plan is going to be adding something different. Since my foot is still giving me pains I have decided to add in…swimming to my routine. It is a low impact, high burning exercise that I kind of suck at. Yes I am bad at swimming so really I can only get better ^_~. Anyways, here is my routine for this week.
Sunday – Unlease Your Inner Wonder Woman 5K
Monday – Morning Swim, Work, Rowing
Tuesday – Morning Bootcamp, Work, Lunch Run
Wednesday – Morning Swim, Work, Rowing
Thursday – Morning Bootcamp, Work, Lunch Run
Friday – Morning Swim, Work, Rowing
Saturday – Off
I still can’t believe that I am going to be swimming. Haven’t done it in FOREVER but I even got myself a water cap so I don’t have to blow dry my hair to get to work.
Ok NeverEver’s, I am leaving you all with that. I am going to be getting ready for my Virtual 5K today and make sure that I don’t get sick again. It is good to be back and I don’t want to leave again.
First let me say that I feel horrible. Apparently, my little cough that I was feeling, and got from a co-worker that shall remain nameless, turned into something a little more sinister.
And that is why it was hurting to cough. Although I may or may not have made it worse by running yesterday’s 5K but that is neither here nor there. What is important is that I have medicine and a doctors note for work. Yup, I got all my duckies lined up in a row.
So, I am not sure how many posts, or workouts for that matter, you are going to be seeing this week. Apparently, my body feels like it just wants to rest, and sleep, and rest some more. I have no energy at times and other times I feel perfectly normal. Just wanted to give you all a nice heads up but I should be better soon, the doc only gave me 5 days of medicine so that should mean that I will be better in 5 days (right!!!).
Anyways, what I really want to talk about is my run last night! Yup my Ready, Set Glow 5K that was in Temecula, Ca and didn’t have the hill of death in it! Here is looking at you Love Mud Run and that evil hill!!
We started the night off right by stopping by the 99 cent store to get some glow sticks and some pins. Last race we were in they ran out of pins so we thought it best to keep a supply handy.
Then it was packet pick-up. Now if you never been to California…its a big state (don’t fight me on this Texas). From Los Angeles to Temecula its about a 2ish hour drive. So we didn’t do the early packet pickup we just came early on the day of.
Welcome to Monday and the knowledge that August is almost half done. I am not sure where this time is flying to but it really needs to stop. I can barely keep up. I can just picture the holidays now…oh boy.
Anyways, before I start off again on how we just don’t have enough time in the day. I would like to start out with my Monday Weigh In!
Yes its a home made calendar but it is something. Plus the main point is to keep me on track. So here is the plan.
Monday – Wednesday – Friday – I have a Rowing Class – Roworx in Long Beach from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. As I really LOVE rowing machines I feel like this is going to be verging on epic for a workout!
Tuesday – Thursday – I have Morning Boot Camp – Live in Fit also in Long Beach from 4:45 am – 5:45 am. This hasn’t been easy to get to. I am not a morning person, but when I do wake up and workout I feel great for the rest of the day. So I am getting my ass out of bed and doing this!!
So that is the plan. This Saturday I have the Ready Set Glow 5K and on Sunday Sep 1st I have my Belle 5K (that comes with an awesome medal) so I am ready to go.
Okay NeverEver’s, it is time for my lunch and I am ready to eat!
Welcome to Thursday! Woot and week is almost done and the weekend is almost here. Best day ever!!! No really I have been in a super happy mood all day today. Must be to the fact that I have been dancing in my seat at work listening to techno! Is it time for EDC again?
Anyways, I wanted to get this Motivational Thursday started! So without further ado…here is the Motivation!!
Welcome to Wednesday! Its Hump Day and I got my coffee, my computer and work…what more could I ask for? Oh and my shakeology but I already drank that. However, I do have a awesome guest post today. It is from HealthLine. I think of their page like WebMD just more friendly and less death notices. Anyways, they are going to be talking about the Heart so make sure to read up! The heart is an extremely important part of your body ^_^.
