Wrapping up the week. I'm trying not to rush the days away but I'm happy to wrap up this week.
After my mom passed away, I was a bit of a zombie at work so this week I was really trying to get it in gear and make my deadlines. My dad also had knee surgery this week so I've been a bit on edge worrying about him.He's doing great, just a bit too soon to go back to that hospital!
Spark Streak Into Spring challenge is going well. I committed to at least 10 minutes of strength training every day. Twice this week, including today, I took advantage of some alone time in the office and did my ten minutes of strength. One day I did the Spark 12-minute seated core workout and today I looked at the Spark fitness demos and did 10 minutes of lower body moves.
Except for last evening, I have been eating mindfully and getting light workouts done. This Saturday is the St. Patrick's day 5K so I have not done any strenuous workouts this week.
Physical therapy and the lousy winter have kept me from running more than a mile since the beginning of November so I'm not sure how I'll do at the 5K. All winter, I have been doing several intense lower body workouts and intense cardio workouts so I'm hoping it will be all good in the neighborhood Saturday. I'll just be happy to be outside and enjoy the morning with my daughter!
As some of you know, I need to wrap up my blogs with some music. The song Compass by Lady Antebellum has been in my head off and on all week...
"You wanna give up 'cause it's dark
We're really not that far apart
So let your heart, sweet heart
Be your compass when you're lost
And you should follow it wherever it may go..."
Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend!
