My minimum is supposed to be 150 minutes a week, but that exploded to 400 to 700 minutes a week after getting my groove. This week, I only managed to go to two yoga classes and one insanity class, and I had to rest more than I planned. In fact... Read more

Even though yoga is very gentle, I took rest days in-between workouts. In general, I am doing less fitness than I was this summer, but I must be overdoing it because I started getting weird foot and hip pain. Too many downward dogs, maybe. I ... Read more

Monday, August 21, 2017      3 comments

This weekend was intense and carried over to today in terms of activity. I was at the nail shop and was falling asleep, so I had to think back on why I was so tired. On Saturday, I did another insanity class; I normally do one a week. Sun... Read more

I am so blessed to have a supportive husband who watches the kids. I ended up not going to the pool because I started my period (which is awful, awful, awful this month), so I worked out instead. I snuck in some ST and stretched out. Tha... Read more

Tuesday, August 08, 2017      0 comments

This morning, I was dragging my butt because I stayed up watching The Good Witch, which is not the most compelling show. However, I still woke up at 6a.m. and power walked very badly. I did ST with my resistance bands, and I only 1 rep per mus... Read more
