Excuses…

9 Apr

Last weeks workouts:
Monday: Chest + Back + Balance & Ab Ripper
Tuesday: Plyocide
Wednesday: X2 Shoulders & Arms & Ab Ripper
Thursday: Rest
Friday: TurboFire 60
Saturday: Base & Back & Ab Ripper
Sunday: Run

What a busy week! The last couple of weeks I have used a day for rest. Which is something I rarely do, but I started a new schedule with P90X 2 and I think my body just needed it. I didn’t take a day off because I was lazy and didn’t feel like it….that’s lame. I believe in listening to your body in order to prevent injury or illness.

I was not able to run very much this week. My husband works long hours in the spring, so I go when I can.

I sure didn’t feel like working out today. I got off work, started laundry, and decided to gut out and clean my bathroom closets, and re-organize my makeup case. What a crazy life I live.

A few laundry loads later I looked at my little man and said, "It's time to go workout buddy." He gets so excited.

It is quite interesting working out with a 2 year old. When I am doing push-ups he seems to think that I am making him a bridge to crawl under. Or, he drives trucks up and down my back. Do I get extra points for difficulty?

When he was 1, I had to wake up at 4:30 am to fit my workout in. If I didn't do it first thing in the morning, I was at risk of missing it entirely. Now, not so much. I make a point to fit in an hour workout daily. Why? It makes me feel better and I never regret it.

The moral of my blabbing is: get your workouts in. Are you better at making excuses? Stop it *smack*
My challenge for you is to stop with the excuses and show your body some love! You only get one body. It is a great gift! Take care of it!

Good Life

19 Mar

Good Life. Not only is this one of my favorite songs (One Republic, listen to it) these two words come to my mind every day. I don’t want to get all sappy, but every morning when I wake up I think to myself how blessed I am that I get to open up my eyes and see, that I am warm in my own bed in my own house, that my husband is next to me (when he doesn’t fall asleep on the couch), and that my son is safe, healthy, and warm in the next room.  I don’t ever want to take that for granted. Nor should anyone. Count your blessings every day. So many of us only think of blessings when life has us down and out. We shouldn’t think like that. Every day, thank God for what you have and who you have. Make your life a good life. OK, I am jumping off of my podium now.

Anyways! More importantly…I bought some new shoes 😉 My feet and legs were starting to get pretty crabby after my last few runs. So, off to Bismarck I and my little side-kick went. How long will my son willingly go shopping with me? It was just a crazy day. I walked into the mall and realized my short-sleeve cardigan was inside out for the world to see. So, I slipped into an aisle and switched it around. What an idiot. I told my brother and he said, “that’s my sister.”

Running schedule is coming along too! I am in the middle of the fourth week I believe. It is so crazy how much I improve every time I go out.

I am also on my third week of P90 X 2. I run on my rest days and I squeeze one more in when I can. I always go on and on about the workout program I am currently doing, but let me just say, Beachbody really hit a home run with this one. I can’t believe how amazing I feel when I am done with each workout. They are definitely not easy, but that just wouldn’t be any fun if they were. Have you ever heard of a foam roller? No? Ok, you need to go to my shopping tab and my Beachbody store and take a look. I never heard of a foam roller before this program. I now have two. One for my workout room and one for my living room upstairs. Might as well be doing something while I’m watching Frasier or the Golden Girls. What? The 90’s are over? Says who?
