I can finally say that I’m somewhat pleased with how these past two weeks went. I wanted to get workouts in and I worked hard to even find just like 10 to 15 minutes rather than not doing anything at all. I did three workouts in the first week and only two in the second. The last one before done right before this post goes up, but that is because I insisted on getting the minimum two I want to do. Its just making the effort to get it done and when I do accomplish that goal, it makes me happy.
Monday: Short Zumba Session
DreamHack coverage wrap-up took longer than anticipated on Monday following. Its usually the case with fatigue just hitting hard but I wanted to get in a workout so I ended up doing a short one at 11:45pm. Not optimal as it cuts into sleeping time but a 10 minute session is better than nothing, right?
Thursday: Weights & Yoga
I have the worst back muscles ever so I figured out that I’ll do that and it was fairly challenging. Then I went on to do yoga that I haven’t done in a good few months (if not an entire year). Let me tell you that the side planks were so painful. I guess its time to work out the abs more.
Location: Reserve Naturelle des Montagnes Vertes
You can check out the details of the hike HERE. Its our first hike after my husband whole health debacle scare. We’re hoping to get another hike in but we are still waiting on some results and also on medication to hopefully fix the issue. We’re still keeping it rather gentle.
Nothing like a session of Zumba to keep things happy and light. The week was fairly ridiculous and stupid on all levels so my stress level was really high. Zumba is my go-to destressing thing.
Sunday: Calisthenics/Weight Training
A final workout before we wrap up this week! I asked my husband who helps me out with figuring out workout stuff a lot to just give me different sets to do. This is what he came up with it.
3 rounds of each set
Push ups x12
Bent Over Rows – 5lbs each hand x20
Set 2 (15 reps)
Set 3 (12 reps) – 5lbs each hand
Lateral Raises (dropped in 3rd round)
Set 4 (15 reps)
Survived that one! Lateral raises are my death usually so it wasn’t surprising that my shoulder starting to hurt so I stopped that in the 3rd round and just did front raises and reverse flies (is that how you spell it?). Either way, it felt good to get back to weight training and slight calisthenics.
That wraps up these last two weeks!
Goals for the next two weeks? Get in some ab workouts.
Maybe go for a jog if it doesn’t get really cold.
Keep up the 2 workouts minimum per week!
