I’ve been off work since December 21. Unbelievably fabulous. Now, I haven’t done anything that was that exciting, but there’s something nice about: Waking up at your leisure, watching multiple movies if I feel like it, being caught up on laundry and dry cleaning, and taking time to experiment with new recipes.
It’s been AWESOME. All good things, we know, must eventually come to an end. As you’re reading this post, I am officially back at work. Working hard, and trying to sift through email, and make travel plans for the month.
|I have a HUGE to-do list that I need to get working on ASAP.|
As I get back into work-mode, my mind is on WORKING OUT. I’ve worked out for the past 5 days, and I’m really on a roll. I’ve been able to go to the gym whenever I wanted to. Some days I’ve gone during the afternoon, some days I’ve gone as soon as I’ve woken up. I even had a chance to work with a trainer last week – – which was awesome!
|Hello Weight Machines… Nice to Meet You|
The trainer and I spent an hour going through how to use each of the weight machines and getting me set up on a system in the gym that tracks all my workouts. I’m getting to the point where I’m almost excessively tracked… but I’ll do it. Every little bit helps!
I really think that working out is going to be key to losing my next 17 lbs and will be incredibly important for long-term maintenance. As a result, I plan to share an update on my workouts (the good, the bad, and the ugly) on a weekly basis.
How I Worked Out This Week: Keep in mind, two months ago I wasn’t working out at ALL. For the past month and a half, I’ve been working out pretty consistently. And, don’t quote me on this, but I think I’m starting to enjoy it! (Yes, Laurel, you heard me right!)
|There’s a machine or two that I’ll never befriend. Yes, I’m talking about YOU, Arc Trainer.|
How I Plan to Workout Next Week: I’m back to work starting today and traveling for part of the week. What this means is that I will have to get creative in my workouts, working out at different times and in the hotel gym, and working out outside of my routine.
|I have my own mat, afterall…|
Bottom Line: I’m thrilled that I’m getting into a routine with working out. I can’t wait to share how this week goes!
[…] Last time I was on this thing, I literally spent maybe 5 minutes. This week, I rode it not once, but TWICE. The first day, I did 10 minutes; the second day I did 20 minutes. […]
