This week was a pretty successful week in the world of workouts. First of all, my stress level was much lower this week than the past two weeks. Another thing that helped me be successful was waking up early in the mornings to get in my workout first thing0 before I left for work. I find that I’m most consistent when I do the early morning routine, rather than waiting until lunch time or after work, when I have a whole day to make excuses as to why I can skip the workout.
To recap, here’s what I did:
Monday – Friday: 21 Day Fix workouts. Wednesday I was having a particularly tired/not feeling well type of day, so instead of skipping the workout and ruining my good streak, I decided to do the 21DF yoga workout instead. I was very happy with this decision because it let me stretch out and get in a workout without pushing myself too hard. Generally this workout comes at the end of the week, but I find that it works best for me to mix and match the workouts depending how I’m feeling on any given day.
Monday I also got in 30 minutes of dance cardio after completing my 21 Day Fix workout. This was a great way to kick off the week because it made me feel very accomplished and pushed me to do more the rest of the week.
Saturday I took the day off unintentionally. It was a big day here because my family and D’s family met each other for the very first time! It ended up going great, but by the time the evening rolled around and everyone went home, I just couldn’t fathom doing something active.
Today, I have on the agenda the Dirty 30 workout in the 21 Day Fix rotation, which when completed will mean that I worked out 6 out of 7 days this week. I’m very happy with this result!
After tomorrow’s Pilates workout, the 3 weeks of 21 Day Fix workouts will have concluded. This is the first time I’m ever going to have done the full 21 days (even though I did stretch them out into 4 weeks).
What is my plan after this? I’m going to ease up on the Fix schedule, while still keeping the workouts in my rotation. As I’ve mentioned before, I have a love/hate relationships with the Fix in that the workouts kick my butt while I’m doing them and take a lot of motivation to get through, but they do give me the results I’m looking for. I’m tentatively planning to do an every other day Fix workout and an every other day “fun” cardio workout with a rest day next Sunday when we’re attending a friend’s wedding.
What kind of workouts did you do this week?
