Thoughts: It was a kick ass workout!! I’m so proud of myself that I put it together and did it with little rest. I kept my average HR up there, so I’m proud of that number. I started off with a .15 mile walk, then a 1 mile run. Then jumped right into body weight exercises, then weighted. A couple of things I had to switch around as you may have noticed from yesterday’s post. The weight part of HW was really busy with trainers so I was kind of confined to one spot. I don’t mind this, but I sure do enjoy going to my planet fitness (use to be a world’s gym, so we have all their old free weights, barbells, benches and racks) on Saturdays to lift more freely.
I got home last night at 7pm after working about 11 hours yesterday. My head was toast. I had enough time to make dinner, protein shakes for Corey and I (he was still at school), lunch for today, clean our field cooler and do some dishes and pack. OY! This is what I mean about turning off my brain. If I think about what I have to do when I get home, I won’t do it. So I go on autopilot and know the sooner I get stuff done, the sooner I can brush my teeth, get in my pjs and jump in bed.
I did get to see little Alice last night for a bit. She wasn’t feeling very well though :-\ She’s not my kid, but I do miss her during the day. Womp!
Corey got home around 9pm last night, I vaguely remember him coming in to say hi, kiss me a bit, tuck me in and let me fall asleep. Since he’s laid off, I think he finally got into bed around 11:30pm. But I was so comatose, he wrapped his arms around me and I was out like a light.
This morning I was already packed, so I got up around 4:40, got dressed, put on my sweats (it was 50 out went I left) and headed out at 5:10am and got to the gym at 6am! Woo!!! Today is also my first CIS with a trainer. It’s complimentary so I kind of have to go and get it done before it expires.
Tomorrow is a much needed rest day and a girls night with my friend. Because Thursday is either obstacle training or a different version of today’s workout, depending on how things go.
I’ll probably update today on my meeting with trainer, see what she says!
ONE DAY CLOSER TO FRIDAY MY WEEKEND WARRIORS!!
