Weekly Workout Log ... x2 I guess

Meh. I've gotten lazy. Mostly because I was lazy.
It happens I suppose.

Now that I've officially declared myself in a relationship on Facebook with Ice Cream Guy, I have to admit, I'm very nearly falling back into my bad habit ... skipping workouts to spend an extra hour with that boyfriend of mine.


I'm making it a point to not do that. So, while Runner's World is having their Holiday Streak Challenge of running every day, I'm having my own streak of working out every day for at least 12 minutes (uh, yeah, that's BodyRock time). I'm also still trying to overcome puppy mom guilt so I can leave Jeff at home for 20 minutes so I can use real weights instead of my wimpy 3 pound weights. And yes, I could buy some 8's or 10's but why when there is a nice little gym in my apartment complex that has weights?

So here are the days I actually did something, other than sit around and be lazy ... and it's an embarassingly short list for 2 weeks:

Monday, 11/12: BodyRock's Slippery When Wet workout. I know. Followed this up with Operation: Gun Show

Wednesday, 11/14: Operation: Gun Show and a quick round of jumping jacks, squats and pushups. Sigh. My life has become anything but running. When I think about it, I get a little sad. Still have got quite a bit of tightness that seems to be aggrivated only by running, though, so I'm not quite sure what to do about it.

Thursday, 11/15: I know I BodyRocked, but I have no idea which one I did. Sometimes I pick and choose rather than going with the WOD, and this was a day I got picky. I do remember it was pretty hefty on the arms, so I skipped Operation: Gun Show.

Friday, 11/16: An early morning with my trainer. It was a doozy. Sprints, wall sits, curls, overhead presses, making my feet fly over a bench and abs. Then after that was over, 100 reps to work the tri's using the rope pull down thingy (y'all know what I'm talking about, right??).

I was painfully sore for a good 3 days

Monday, 11/19: BodyRock's Sexy & Lean workout & Operation: Gun Show.

Thursday, 11/22: 2 Mile Turkey Trot with my brother and sister back home. My brother got 2 overall, which was super exciting and I won my AG! I'm planning an RR soon.

Saturday, 11/24: my own little circuit: 15 min on bike, 15 pushups, 20 squats, 15 tri dips, and abs X2. A quickie, but not too bad.

So that's what I've been up to. Hoping I find a way, both mentally and physically, to get back to running sooner rather than later, but I know it will be waiting with open arms when I return.


  1. Don't make me come over there and smack you, kid.

    How much stretching are you doing? Not very much, I'll bet. Not even as much as me, which is not very much.

    Congrats on ICB.

  2. I'm waiting eagerly for that victory RR! Meanwhile, drop some hints to Ice Cream Guy about some bigger weights for Christmas...because what's more romantic than that? Besides, a happy dog is a prerequisite to a healthy relationship.
