This past week was incredibly trying for me. I know we all have those weeks, but as I type this and think back on the last seven days, the events seem as if they happened weeks ago — and yet moments ago at the same time. Strange how that happens, isn’t it? In any case, I’m glad, as I always am, that I have fitness as an outlet for stress. It was definitely used that way this week.
Easter is coming and I’m so glad! I’m blessed to be out of school Thursday, Friday, and again next Monday. I’m looking forward to time off with my husband and family celebrating the resurrection of Christ!
Today, I did Yoga Fix Extreme on Beachbody On Demand. It’s a great 30 minute practice that I would classify as intermediate. It’s more than just a good stretch, but not so easy that you don’t even break a sweat.
As I discussed in my April goals, I want to continue running twice a week until it’s time to start training for my RunDisney half marathon. I got in a good 2 mile run on my treadmill after doing a 15m upper body workout using the Jillian Michaels app. The running left me HANGRY later in the day, so I made a snack of baby carrots with a savory Greek yogurt dip.
Tuesday’s workout was Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Workout 3 and a free ab circuit from her app. It was a great “push day” workout.
Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Cardio 1 — the same as last week!
Rest day. 🙂 I tend to prefer a mid-week rest day because 4 a.m. is just so early. By Wednesday night, there’s not a lot of gas left in my tank so I sleep in 45 extra minutes on Thursdays.
Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Workout 4 — “pull day”. I love working back and hamstrings, so I always look forward to this day during the week! I definitely was feeling it.
I had to work Saturday morning — womp womp. So I got up extra early to get a workout in before heading to Saturday School! I did another upper body workout from the Jillian Michaels app as well as some treadmill intervals to cover the distance of about 1.5 miles. I wanted to run longer, but I was running out of time! The errands I ran throughout the rest of the day definitely made up for it though!
