This week was rough as far as exercise was concerned. Definitely the worst week yet. Here’s what the schedule was supposed to be (I didn’t stick to it very well):
I don’t know what was up this week. After last week being so crazy and requiring so much dedication to get my workouts in, this week was just the opposite. We were getting back to normal life after a busy few weeks and there wasn’t anything to get in the way of my workouts. However, I was exhausted and just not feeling it. I skipped on Monday with the idea to just push everything back a day. I was tired, my knees hurt, I needed a break. But then Tuesday came and I was considering skipping again. Thank goodness for Jasen encouraging me to get my pump on because it meant I went though with my workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. He even joined me once. We also went for a few evening walks to enjoy the fall weather. At this point, as long as I did my workouts on Friday and Saturday, I would have made it through the week with only the last cardio session missed. But that’s not what I did. Friday I skipped. I could just exercise on Saturday and Sunday. Then Saturday got busy and I didn’t work out that day either. Ugh. Why could I not get my butt in gear?
With only 1 day left in the week and 2 workouts to do, I came up with this plan: finish up week 6 on Sunday and Monday, and start week 7 on Tuesday with no days off. That way I could still get all of my workouts in and get back to a normal schedule for week 8. Well I did get my Sunday workout in before church and I’m going to do today’s workout once this post goes up. Starting off good! Now I just have to keep up with it…
Lesson learned this week: don’t put off things for tomorrow that you can do today.
