Getting back on track ... Slowly

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Last week I was sick for two days. Not really sick but burned out. I forced myself to two consecutive rest days and it paid off. After that I did hot yoga for three consecutive days and held up my intense strength training sessions. I was not ready yet, I was not motivated and felt my body needed to soak up the benefits of the week before.

Again it paid off. I still lost weight.

The downside was when I went back to my strength training session. I lacked a lot of energy in the beginning of the workout. It was only at the end that my body gave its optimum performance. I also noticed that I did not sweat as much.

I did only 25 mins of cardio instead of 40 mins. I wanted to take it easy. I hope this will pay off.

I really hope that the next time I will be back to my old performance. It is a little weird for me because I only missed two sessions and my condition has already lowered.

I am only a little sore. Even so tonight I will be doing a bit of hot yoga. Tomorrow I shall see. For sure I have learned my lesson. Sometimes intensity is better than frequency. Be well rested so that I can give my all during my workout.

Here is to another beautiful week almost ending.
Happy thursday everyone

    The power of rest is Phenomenal...don't underestimate and don't beat yourself up when about. Look at how wonderfully your body responded to it. Work out hard when you workout out (of course), healthy healthy foods (of course) and take time to smell the roses (so often forgotten). Stay consistent and keep you eye on the ball. While you move towards it, it is also moving towards you. emoticon
