Ups and Downs
Friday, February 08, 2013
It's been a crazy week in my world!! I started off sick and unmotivated, but stepping on the scale I had lost an additional 1.2 lbs!! Then family drama smacked me right in the face in the middle of the week. Talk about a downer, and another motivation zapper. I don't think anyone likes dealing with drama, but I loathe it, especially when it's immature and unnecessary.
Despite that, and going over my calories for the last few days, I have gotten back on the horse and started exercising again yesterday. My sore shoulder has been bothering me - I have tendinitis in my left shoulder - so I tried to take it easy yesterday and did a Sparkpeople video for 20 minutes. Today I ramped it up and did a whole 11 minutes on my elliptical. I was doing ten, but I heard that as you progress you should increase your cardio by 10%, so that's what I did. And with the great 90's workout mix from Sparkpeople, I made it no problems. YEAH!!
So, here's to a good weekend. Hope everyone is well and safe. Have fun in the snow if you're from the northeast!
