I have been struggling a bit with my food choices this week. Not to give myself excuses but last week was a high carb week and it threw off my rhythm. The previous 3 weeks was 2 low carb days and then 1 high carb days. This week of high carb days just gave me too much freedom and I'm afraid that I ate the wrong kind of high carbs some of the time.
Today I reigned things in and did okay with choices and stayed within calorie range.
I had a training session this afternoon with the trainer and I now know that I am a morning person for training too. I really have a harder time getting through the workouts that are in the afternoon.
This session was 15-15-15-15 then a 1 minute drill. What that means is 15 seconds of each exercise but all are related so.......... 15 seconds of squats on the bosu ball, then 15 seconds stationary squat, then repeat both.
Did the same things with bicep curls on the bosu ball and overhead presses. Then there were a few rounds of planks, mountain climbers, and a core exercise.
She kept asking me if I was breathing and I think I wasn't half the time.
I can say that I didn't love this workout but she reminded me that I would love it when I was sore tomorrow (meaning that it was a good workout). Next week we only have 1 session because she is taking off part of the week.
On a good note, we are scheduling a fun team building exercise - a cooking lesson. My suggestion!
I actually found the place when I was looking for cooking lessons for myself. We get to pick the menu that we want to make and the instructor will walk us through it - we'd be in teams - then after we get to sit down and eat!
My group is all woman except one older man. He is against it and doesn't want to go. It kind of irritates me because he is always complaining that he doesn't know how to cook and can only make something when directed by his mother (if you are getting my drift). My manager won't force him to go and that's a good thing because he'd probably ruin the day! I am looking forward to it!!
