Off days are good!

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I was just reading an article about how it's better to work out less than too much. You tend to work harder on your days you do workout if u take a few off. Rather then u work out with less energy if u workout everyday. I should have taken this tip for myself yesterday. It was such a nice day, 47 degrees and sunny. I met my friend to try rock climbing. She has a membership to a place in town that's only rock climbing and she could bring ppl for free. So I thought "hey why not?You never know what u might like til you try it... ". I think I was a huge disappointment to her. Cuz everything I tried, I kinda freaked out on. I don't really have a fear of heights, I have a fear of falling lol Even strapped in, it was scary. You gotta put thought into twisting your body while grabbing for the next place and stay didn't work for me. I was never a climber as a child. Oh well I tried. Then I came back and walked the dogs for about 25 minutes. Then Scott and I set out on a bike ride. I was wondering what would happen with my fitbit on a bike. I left it clipped to my sports bra for some stupid reason. Scott had his on his pants pocket. For a 9.5 mile ride I got 1400 steps lol Scott got like 4000....Something to remember. Oh well probably overdid it yesterday, bum is sore! Been a while since I did a long ride, it was nice to get out. Today we are supposedly getting 5-9 inches of snow. Hopefully this is the last ho-rah! Next week is supposed to be in the high 40's so I am hoping for the best!

I hit a dance class this morning with a teacher that left our gym and was subbing. I totally forgot how much jumping she does. I left with a bright red face. Oh well I like a challenge, she does all pop songs too so it's almost like a different class. She is subbing again tomorrow night.... I promise to take Tuesday off, mark my words!

I am making a big pot of creamy chicken noodle soup again today. I started it before breakfast so it will be done early. Nothing like some comfort food for a snowy day.

    We lucked out and only got around 4 inches which was about an 1.5 inches more than they got where hubby works 14 miles south of here . It snowed all day Sunday and Monday but a lot melted as it was above freezing. The rest is melting now though so I am happy.

I could not handle the amount of exercise you do. I'm happy if I can get my steps in and a little strength training, yoga, qigong, swimming, or dancing.

  I want to try climbing at ISU! They have a big wall at the gym there, but their hours aren't great. Hopefully soon I can try it!!! I'm sorry you didn't like it. It's not for everyone, I'm sure. Creamy chicken soup sounds amazing right now. I just shoveled the drifts off my driveway with a toy shovel because my kids lost the good shovel and it's now buried!!! Grrr! Are you sure you want kids?! ;)

    Soup is perfect for snowy days!

And yeah, sometimes a slow day off is good - I take one every so often. Not that I work out as intensely as you do - but I just like a mental day off.
