A question I’ve asked myself on several occasions the past couple of weeks. The 2 jobs have kept me quite busy. So busy that I have a confession to make. I haven’t worked out in almost 2 weeks. AND because I haven’t had much time to do anything but work, I’ve had to eat out a few times. More than I would have liked. I tried my best to plan my meals and my workouts, but I was just too exhausted to get it done. Poor planning on my part.
And with so many things going on, I really haven’t had the chance to sit and blog.
Anyway, after co-hosting a baby shower (which I will share with you in a future post) and starting something new (again, another post), I realized I couldn’t afford to go another week without working out. So I got back into the gym yesterday. Did a HIIT cardio workout. Felt great. But I must tell you… My muscles ached just a little when I woke up this morning. I swear I’ve lost some muscle definition during my 2-week hiatus. And I’m kinda sad that it kinda feels like I’m starting from square one. Good news though… My cardio endurance hasn’t changed. Yay.
Today’s workout, I did a 15 minute workout CrossFit style. I did the following:
1. 10 squats with barbell and weight
2. 20 situps on an incline
3. 5 push-ups using the gymnastic rings (all core, baby)
I repeated this entire circuit 5x. Then I went to the gym about an hour later and did a HIIT cardio workout on the treadmill:
1 min sprint @ 9.0
3 min walk @ 4.0
*repeated 6x up to 24 min and then cooled down for 6 min
Ended my workout with a 2 min plank. My core just couldn’t take anymore. As I am typing this, I’m already feeling the tightness in my muscles….yup, I will most definitely be in pain tomorrow. *sigh* oh well. That’s what I get for slackin’, right?
So I’m workin’ on more posts to get you updated on all the good stuff that’s been happening in my life. Things will calm down just a little bit for me…so I’m going to make time to blog. I promise.
Until next time….
