It has started out a tough week, but I've still been managing to get in my exercise. I started the week out with a cold, a hurt wrist, and sore gums. It has been unbearable especially the second and third on that list.
I missed my workout for yesterday which isn't that big of a deal since I'm supposed to take at least one rest day as a goal. I didn't exercise because the scheduled exercises and replacements that I was looking into involved putting a lot of weight on my wrist. And I know exercising would have just made it worse so I gave it a day to heal. The other reason I didn't exercise yesterday was because I honestly couldn't eat much of anything. I still managed to get my protein and vitamins in, but it was not easy. I mixed orange juice with carrots and a pear that I juiced. It's really delicious by the way.
Today, I am better able to eat which is
! I do still have to numb my gums occasionally and haven't gone too far from my straw. I'm slowly getting there. Also, my wrist isn't hurting, and I got in my workout today with yesterdays on top of it. I didn't tell myself I had to do yesterdays, but after I finished today's workout I chose to do yesterdays and on top of that I repeated today's workout as well!
I will never let an off day ruin my entire week again, but that is how I used to work. I basically used it as an excuse, but after my success today I do not want to enable that behavior in myself.
I'm doing a lot of Tone It Up workouts nowadays. They are pretty fun and difficult. However, if f I'm not doing those my workout consists of either workouts on blogilates or sarah fit channel on youtube. The final choice for where I get my workout ideas are from the Nike Training Club app. If you ever get bored with your workouts those are awesome ways to switch up your workout.
Have a nice day!
