What a rough week this past one was. Even though I was coming off a break, responsibility, stress, and general “adulting” hit me like a speeding train. I kept up with my workouts, but my nutrition was completely off. I gave in to cravings, had take out twice, and one night didn’t even really eat dinner. I had some cheese melted inside a tortilla. I mean, that’s like my favorite snack of all time, but I can’t eat like I’m 16 anymore — at least not if I don’t want to continuously feel like crap.
One bright spot in an otherwise crappy few days, is that yesterday was my one year anniversary. We shared an amazing weekend together and I’m heading into today refreshed and recharged. Before I do that though, I want to take a quick look back at the last week.
Rest day on Easter Sunday! We spent the day with family, eating a ton of food and making the trip back home. We watched more of 13 Reasons Why and totally got sucked in.
I enjoyed oooone more day off work and got in a quick upper body workout using the Jillian Michaels app. I was going to run on the treadmill, but thought I might as well take it outside and run with Pippa. Yes, that was this run.🙄 Usually she is the best running partner, but on that day, she was a complete goofball.
Back to school! I got in a push day/front of the body workout using Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Workout 5 and added in 10 minutes of sprints.
I did some body weight cardio on Wednesday using Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Cardio 2. I also did her free daily ab circuit on the app. This is about when the stress started to take over and I found myself taking advantage of Clear Mood to try and manage my anxiety.
Rest day. And absolutely necessary at that.
I did Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Workout 6, but skipped out on the sprints this time. My allergies and asthma kicked my butt this week, so I decided to take it a bit easier.
On my schedule, I had planned a run, but waking up to clouds, wind, cool weather, and aforementioned asthma had me changing my mind. I decided to sub in the Tone It Up Daily Moves for upper body, HIIT Abs, and HIIT the Beach from their new Beach Babe 5 series. I can’t resist the Tone It Up marketing. Every time they put out something new, I WANT IT! I’m shocked I restrained myself from buying the new bundle.
The annual Tone It Up Bikini Series starts TODAY and due to all this stress, I’m so looking forward to all the light and positivity the challenge provides. What do you do when the stresses of life start to get the best of you?
