I’m still around!! It’s been a rough week. I’ve been a little under the weather and was out of work (which has caused my anxiety level to reach new heights, thinking of everything I will have to catch up on–story for another day). Today, I am feeling more normal for the first time since Wednesday night so it’s time to just force myself back into my groove (I am pretty sure I didn’t construct that sentence correctly).
I did teach a spin class Tuesday night and here is the playlist I used…
This was actually a Ripped Ride class so there are a few songs thrown in the mix for work with the bands. (Find out more about Ripped Ride here) I did attempt a workout yesterday, even though I wasn’t feeling so hot. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the bike, some squats (which I forgot to count…again), and I did some chest and back. No, my workouts have no order or make any sense. I know you should probably have a chest and back day, a leg day, whatever. I just do what I feel like doing. I was fine during the weight lifting portion of my workout but didn’t do so well with the cardio. Guess I was just weak from not feeling well or not eating like I usually do for the last few days.
I woke up this morning feeling better, thankfully. I didn’t want my entire weekend to suck. My friend Gary text me around 9 and asked if I wanted to go spin or go for a jog. He didn’t make it seem like I had a way out…I was forced to choose one. So I went with spin. We went to Ripped Ride at 10:30 taught by my friend Dennis (check out his wifey’s blog!) and I’m so glad Gary pushed me to go. I knew if I stayed in bed, that’s exactly where I would be most of the day. Instead, I worked out, cooked lunch for me and Matt, and got some housework done. I knew a good sweat would make me feel better. I’m not 100% yet but I’ll get there.
Tonight, we are going to meet up with Dennis and Kim and engage in adult conversation! It’s hard for them to get out with the 2 beautiful kids they have on their hands. So this is a treat for us. Wish me luck as I try to figure out what to wear. It’s 63 degrees and rainy in South Carolina…in August.
Question: I recently read that bloggers should ask their readers what they want to read. So, y’all tell me, is there anything you want to know? Enjoy your weekend!!
