It happens to everyone, that week off that is simply inevitable.
Week 5 was all about no workout. It had many reasons. Last week’s hike was the reason for Monday not happening as I always need a rest day to not strain my knees more. Then Tuesday, my lady problems started so cramps hit me all the way into Wednesday. Yoga would have been an option bu then Thursday came the reality of the house having absolutely no groceries left so I was already making a choice between eating one better meal and one not so good one which doesn’t work so great in the big picture so I had to do that. Then, Friday was a pre-scheduled fun day to check out the Grand Prix festivities in town and came home to my husband catching an odd bug so it was scampering to go get him meds and make sure he was okay with everything. The weekend hit and it was all about E3 and chiro and other errands that I don’t have to take care of during the week to the various reasons above.
There are no excuses to not working out. Trust me when I say that things sometimes just don’t happen. I did however, get in a lot of extra walking time to kind of make up for the lack of workout. I took walks during lunch and then took walks to run errands downtown before going home. Grand Prix Friday also had a lot of walking around which was great. There are some wins in these situations and to make the best of what I have to do and what just can’t be done.
I debated to not put up the post but I want to stay accountable and honest about this workout journey because I am serious about getting back on track. Plus, I’ve been getting a lot of motivation to do the 5K run in Montreal in September which I have been thinking about lately.
With that said, today was when I put my foot down and decided to make some time between everything and waiting for the E3 Xbox press conference to start to make up my own cardio stuff by putting together by doing some Zumba from Youtube. Here are the vids below!
Here’s the Sunday workout, everyone! Give it a go if you want! Its like exercising and partying all at the same time!
The exact boost I needed!
For now, Xbox E3 has now started so back to Game Warp duty! Have a fantastic Sunday!
