Thank you so much to all of those who commented and entered the Bart Yasso book giveaway. The winner is:
Week 13 was a travel work week for me, which worked out nicely for pool running. It’s really hard for me to find a place in ATL without a gym membership with a pool.
Monday: 55 minutes of cardio (up to a level 6 on elliptical) and private pilates session. I seriously have missed this sooo much. I can’t afford to go to private sessions as often as I would like and I am going to try and find some sort of video to do until I get approval to go to the group class (I will have to modify, still moves I am not allowed to do).
Tuesday: 45 minutes pool running (more to come later) and PT exercises
Wednesday: Workout with Kelsey!!! This sweet, sweet friend from #NUUNHTC last year lives near Knoxville, TN and came into Knoxville so that we could workout and go to dinner. She was kind enough to do what I needed to do…so that meant 55 minutes of cardio and weight training.
We worked out at the UT gym, which reminded me how old I was…and perhaps creepy for checking out the 20 year olds that were quite nice to look at? Whatevs. I was also called ma’am by the front staff quickly bringing me back to reality. YIKES.
After a great workout we went to dinner in downtown Knoxville and caught up on life. She also surprised me with 2 of my fav’s: Tennessee whiskey and a Sparkly Soul headband. I’m so glad that Knoxville is part of my territory and I will get to see her several times a year.
Thursday: early morning 45 minutes pool running and PT exercises
Friday: after a long work week and travel, a much deserved REST DAY
Saturday: 55 minutes of cardio, PT exercises. See a pattern yet?
Sunday: privates pilates with Corey. More on her visit soon, too!
You may have noticed I missed PT at the actually doc’s office this week. Couldn’t fit it in with work.
I have to be honest. I am tired. I am restless. I am so flipping ready to move past the same cardio workouts. The progression has been great, but I can’t wait to be able to sign up for a race and buy new running shoes. And get a running massage. AND GO RUNNING.
Other random things I miss: pigeon pose stretching and sitting indian style. I honestly think it will be close to a year before I can do either.
My weight has crept up a little and I’m sure it is a combo of not doing as much cardio as I would like, eating out more, traveling, and going out more. It’s only 3-4 pounds…so maybe it’s muscle coming back too? Or both. I’m still tracking in my lose it app. Not going to stress about it. Gotta live life and enjoy it and know it will all balance out once I’m back to “normal.”
Do you wear headbands/sweatbands when you workout? Favorite brand? How was your weekend? Do you travel for work? If so, do you eat right and exercise when you are gone?
