I was thinking of starting a new plan. But with these next three weeks having so much variation, I think I will wait until after that is over. So look for some kind of routine and lifting plan to begin toward the end of June. For now, let's just hope I can burn more than ??? calories, like I did this week.
Saturday, I started off on the right foot. I made it to BodyCombat class. ANd I started in the weight room lifting shoulders beforehand. The newest release has these corkscrew punches and my shoulders were tired for days from that workout.
Sunday I had plans to go to the gym, and then my plans changed and I ended up hanging out with Samantha most of the day. I got a quick 30 minutes of lawn mowing in. I burned about 260 calories, but I didn't intend for it to be a workout. Unfortunately, the rest of the week didn't turn out much better.
Monday, I made myself go on the way home from work, so I couldn't use the "I am too tired" excuse. I ran two miles on the treadmill, and did leg weights. All of my least favorite things thrown in to one Monday.
Then on Tuesday, I had ot make myself take a rest day. Because Tuesday is the day I am committed to doing things with Dan and not letting my workouts come first. We sat on the front porch and watch the thunderstorm come in. We had dinner, checked on our basement several times (still dry) and noticed that one of our gutters was clogged with pine needles from this tree we have dying in our front yard. Luckily the overflowing water wasn't doing any harm to my house or my yard. That night it rained inches and inches and I woke up several times worrying about my house flooding. Jennifer says I have Post Traumatic Stress.
Wednesday I pulled a muscle in my arm/neck and I was in pain all day. I had to lay on the floor and stretch before I could do storytime. Then at 4:00, the power went out at the library. Talk about stress! So by the time I got off work at 5:30, I just needed to go home and stretch and rest. I skipped the gym.
Even though I knew that Thursday evening I had social obligations and would be taking another rest day. Three in a row.
So I was lucky to have Tracy waiting for me this morning to get our two miles in. We went a bit further this time, though the beginning and ending were just walking, which I didn't count. And I pushed her to run three half-mile sets. She's getting stronger and our workout was pretty good this morning.
I only burned about 1850 calories this week and that includes my mowing workout. But like I said, I am ready to have a week back on track!
