Week one of 2017 and I feel pretty proud of myself for being on track with working out! It was a hectic week but I did it!
Monday I was not able to sleep so while tossing and turning at 6AM, I thought “why not?” and just went out to do a short run. At first, I had wanted to do it in the evening after work at the gym but since I was awake, I thought I’d just get it over with. Excited that I got it over with, I headed out to work and little did I know….I had mistaken Monday for Tuesday so work was actually closed. Oops! Well at least I got my run done early haha. I ended up buying groceries and making these crunchy nacho burrito taco cups with my “spare” time.
Tuesday after work, I went home to use my mini bands to strengthening. Lots of legs and glute work with the mini bands such as single leg deadlifts, standing kickbacks, side shuffles, etc.
Didn’t want to head downtown in the cold today so I ran by my fake skyline instead ? It was insanely windy out but a short run is better than no run! ??? I could barely move forward at one point. How’s the weather for you? If it’s warm, can I bum on your couch for a few months? ???? (Also, the taco cups I posted yesterday…ALL GONE. Ate all 24 in 2 days ??? link for the recipe in my bio!) #SweatBetter @SportChek #sponsored
Wednesday and Friday, I braved the cold and got in a short little run. Again, I’m more focused on time on my feet than zoning in on a distance at the moment.
Saturday I made my way to GoodLife Fitness only to realized I had forgot my shoes. Definitely not the first time I’ve forgotten my shoes… winter struggles! Left with my boots on and just didn’t grab my runners on my way out! Still got my workout in though! #CantStopWontStop ;)
And finally, Sunday, it was around -16C (3F) so I opted for hot yoga! For a few minutes, it felt like laying in the warm sun on the beach but it quickly turned into my sweating like mad as my heart rate went over 150, trying to reach my toes. It wasn’t easy but I needed it. My body’s been so stiff and knotted up recently that right after the yoga session, I hopped into the bath tub at home and had a slice of cake ;).
So how was your week? How is the weather where you are?
