Last week was…interesting. As I mentioned work was sporatic due to the weather, and I stopped working out besides PT. Which meant alot of time inside doing nothing. (I don’t really ever do “nothing”…it was more like blogging, checking social media sites constantly, and cleaning out random areas of the apartment).
If you had asked me a month or two ago how I would have a felt about a week of sleeping in (aka not setting an alarm and sleeping until 5:30), laying around in pajamas all day, and alternating between coffee and wine, I would have told you that it sounded like a perfect break from the busy schedule I am used to.
And it was nice, for the first few days. But then I just started to feel like a slug. I wanted to get back to my old schedule of up getting up and running and then being a normal human who wears real clothes for 9 hours a day.
But there’s good news! It looks like spring is heading our way! Just looking at the forecast did wonders for my mood and got me rejuvenated for a new week to begin. So, I’m hoping to make the most of this one! Even if I can’t exercise in the way I would like I think that even getting walks in will help me to feel better.
So, let’s recap last week’s workouts.
Just kidding, there is nothing to share. Except that I did my PT exercises every day and ran on the Alter-G on Monday (3 miles) and Wednesday (4 miles).
On Friday I needed to get out so went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then some weights. I’m trying to figure out if/what cross training is best but I don’t think the elliptical is the answer. When I got off I knew immediately that my hips were out of alignment.
I also went the gym on Saturday and did 30 minutes of 5 minutes run/1 minute walk intervals on the treadmill. I felt good until minute 29 when my piriformis decided to point out that it was angry. Grrr….a few steps forward, and a few back I suppose.
It also helped to get out and about over the weekend. We started some furniture shopping on Saturday and then had dinner with my parents and stayed at their house for the night. We also went through some of our wedding gifts that we had stored in our basement so we know what we will be moving into the new house. Sunday brought more furniture shopping followed by meal prep!
Other than that, not much else went on this weekend but…it didn’t snow or ice for the first weekend in about a month so that is exciting! Now let’s just get all this white stuff melted!
Alright everyone, here’s to making it a good (and warm) week!
How long can you handle doing “nothing” before you get bored and need to get back to a schedule?
What did you do this weekend?
Do you like furniture shopping?
