Last week was kind of a slower week for me with exercising. I still got my time in every day. Some days were more casual than others: disc golf on Saturday, walk with Hubby Sunday. I looked at my chart today to log my weights and I noticed that I haven't done weights in two weeks. Yikes! I planned to cut back to twice a week, not stop all together.
Today I did my intervals, at least that's what I call it: 3 min elliptical (warm-up), 1 mile jog, one round of weights (chest press, delt press, bicep curls, quad press), and one round of crunches (30 regular, 10 bicycle, 10 reverse). I did this three times then finished with ten minutes of stretching.
Total cardio: 51 minutes (9 min elliptical and each mile was about 14 minutes)
I feel really good right now. I've started sleeping better thanks to another breakthrough in my thyroid dosing. I've started taking 5 mcg Cytomel before bed and that has really helped. I even had a glass of wine last night, and it didn't affect my sleep. Alcohol has had a tendency to keep me awake lately. So I think I'm well on my way to figuring out my long term thyroid dose. I still have a few weeks until the dessicated thyroid and reverse T3 work their way out of my system completely, so I am expecting some more dose adjustments. I'm just taking it really slowly.
