Week 3 review, slightly set back by injury. Exhausted, introspective, but its week 4

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Last week was rough. I suppose I thought I was pushing myself at home, but I must not have been. I had 2 training sessions with my trainer, and it was hard. I felt like I pushed myself, and was so sore after the first day of training this week. This is the break down:

Sunday: Rest emoticon

Monday: 40 minute bike ride. I did 15 minutes bike riding, but seeing the people on the biggest loser run inspired I hopped on the treadmill instead. I am still counting it as: emoticon

Tuesday: Personal Training emoticon This felt like a great training day, no issues when it was done.

Wednesday: Rest emoticon needed this, i was a little sore.

Thursday: 40 minute elliptical. I did a 50 minute walk outside with the hubby for valentines day since it was nice, so I am still counting it as emoticon again, this day was a little sore.

Friday: Personal Training emoticon I woke up this morning not sore, but hurting. I have no idea when or what I did, but my right shoulder was killing me. Any movement hurt, everything hurt. I had to tell my trainer, and our workout was modified. That said, it still felt like a great workout, and I was already hurting.

Saturday: May do 1.5 miles on the treadmill or Yoga- depends on how crazy the training is. emoticon I woke up that morning, and I was so very hurt-y. Everything was sore, and movement hurt. I rested, and wore a heating pad for almost 24 hours.

Sunday: 1552 calories, 8 glasses of water
Monday: 1596 calories, 8 glasses of water
Tuesday: 1486 calories, 8 glasses of water
Wednesday: 1634 calories, 8 glasses of water
Thursday: 1377 calories, 8 glasses of water
Friday: 1536 calories, 8 glasses of water
Saturday: 1491 calories, 8 glasses of water

So, how am I doing today? I feel a lot better. Yesterday everything hurt. I wasn't sure if I over did it with my training, or if maybe walking with my hubby and the dogs I got jerked when we saw a bunny.....I don't know. This is the first week that I will be doing on my own. I did get all of the prices for actual personal training, and it is a little scary. It was a lot more than I was anticipating. That said, I kind of feel that I need more... When I get myself on my health kick, I feel lost. I haven't been healthy in so long. I feel like I wander around and try to come up with something that I can do on my own to get me to where I want to be. It works for a bit, but I eventually fail. I've been struggling for almost 5 years. I feel, at this point, I need more. I need someone to look at what I'm eating (she has me tracking on fitness pal, which is weirdly motivating), I need someone to push me (not to where I get hurt) so that I can become who I want to be. I am thinking of signing up for 16 weeks of once a week training. I lamented last week about how I could do this with Willow's upcoming surgery.

How am I going to pull this off? One of my goals this year was to work less urgent care. That said, I am going to try to pick up 2 shifts a month, which gives me two six day work weeks, but we can put money away for Willow, and I can get my training as well. It should all be okay in the end, I think.

This week, my fitness goals
Sunday: Rest
Monday: 40 minute bike ride
Tuesday: Strength Training with 20 min on the stair master
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: 40 minute walk
Friday: strength training with 20 minutes on treadmill
Saturday: Yoga or Strength Training

As I look forward, its a long week, I do worry how tired I am. I haven't worked my body this hard in a long time either, and I am just feeling exhausted. Like I need to snuggle down and just sleep for...a while and veg. This transition into a healthier person is a lot more painful that I remember, and I am just tired. I know I just need to do it, and keep doing it...but I am just not used to it yet.

To end the blog on a solid note, hubby had to move the dog house because Yadi somehow got enough speed and height to jump on top of his dog house. He was one poorly thought out impulse from jumping into the next yard to see his girlfriend (a girl dog who looks just like Yadi). But, before he was helped down, we got this great picture.

Lastly, a little late winter cleaning when one of my kitties decided she found a new home:

Night all!
