Last week I went pretty hard. Since this post is a Friday thing, we’ll start with the previous Friday’s work– as promised, I got myself to RPM even though I was in full-blown panic mode. I must admit, 45 minutes on the bike calmed me down a bit.
Saturday was insanity. It started out with my normal Body Pump class followed by several more hours at the gym for 25 minutes of spinning, 25 minutes of rowing, and 25 minutes of strength training. See weekend vlog for details.
Sunday and Monday I took easy.
Tuesday I did CX Work, a 30-minute core class.
Wednesday was back to Body Pump. My regular instructed is away for work and it was a challenge with someone else at the helm for 55 minutes. It’s not that the sub was bad, she just didn’t motivate me the way my regular instructor does. Bestie/Fitness-Inspiration says you make your own workout; girl tells the truth.
Thursday, I was left to my own devices for the first time in weeks. And I decided to go to the gym? I ran 2 miles! How long has it been since I last ran?! I’m proud of me.
So, actually another good week? Feeling fit heading into the weekend– how about you guys?!
Guys, I really like this weekend vlog. I hope you like it too. It wasn’t the craziest weekend, but I like the feel of it… the things I ate, the places I went. I’m happy with this one. I’m happy with how my editing skills are coming along!
So, I wan’t to turn my fitness log into a little bit of a week in review instead. Of course, we’ll be focusing on running and gym things, because that’s part of my life now!
Monday | I caught up with two of my very best friends who I really hadn’t seen for months. We made some very unhealthy food decisions, but enjoyed each other’s company very much. It’s remarkable how busy we all are now, so it’s important to make time for friends.
Tuesday | I returned for a second spinning class and this time, I did so much better! I tried so much harder than the first time and pushed myself more. I biked 18 miles in my 45 minute class and I am so, so into this now! Then I watched Scream Queens and that was amazing.
Wednesday | Finally got to the gym and had a really tough time. I got 1 mile under my belt and headed home. I watched the Nashville premiere and everyone was so sad in it.
Thursday | A similar experience at the gym… just 1 mile. But Thursday was my Friday!
Friday | I didn’t go to the gym, but I did SO MUCH WALKING around the city. 21,375 steps, to be exact, according to my fitbit.
Saturday | Fun, food, and friendship! Also a 1.5 mile run in the morning.
Sunday | Another 1.5 mile run to break the Sunday curse! I swear, now that I have a running playlist, things are going better. I baked and went to Target.
See what I did there? Enjoy the (long!) vlog in which I shopped a lot at Alex & Ani, Sephora, and Barnes & Noble, ate at Tiffani Faison’s Sweet Cheeks Q, and celebrated my brother’s birthday!
And here’s how the week at the gym went:
Monday | Hard day. Decided to avoid running, boo.
Tuesday | Instead of running, I took my very first spinning class! Honestly, I’ve been afraid of this for so long but I bit the bullet and ended up totally loving it! I’m going back for another today… perhaps as you’re reading this!
Wednesday | 1.5 miles
Thursday | 1.5 miles
Friday | Lazy day. No running.
Saturday | 1.5 miles
Sunday | 1 mile. Guess that’s a Sunday thing now.
So, no great distances this week but I went to the gym 5 out of 7 days and hey, that’s not too shabby! The worst part of this is the days I didn’t go to the gym were days I simply didn’t feel like it. Here, I think I could’ve done better. This is not always the case (and spoiler alert: not the case this week) but when it is, I should be pushing myself a little more.
This week’s goal: no excuses. No “I don’t feel like it” or lazy days. Let’s see how I do!
