Something is better than nothing

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

The last couple of weeks have been really busy for me. I've missed at least two weekly workouts for the past two weeks. Yesterday was really busy as well. On Monday evenings, I am usually at the gym not later than 5:45. My routine is to warm up on the stationary bike for 5 minutes, do my strength-training circuit with 30 minutes, and then dash to my water aerobics class from 6:30 to 7:30. Well yesterday, I did not get off from work until 6:00. Then I had to dash home to get my gym bag and pick up my daughter from her after-school program before heading to the gym. I also had my second appointment with my fitness coach lastnight at 7:45.

Sometime during the day at work yesterday, I decided that I would skip water aerobics since there was no way I'd make it to class on time, however, I would still do my strength training since I had to meet my coach anyway. By the time I got off from work, I had changed my mind. I realized that if I could get in atleast 30 mins of water aerobics, then I would still burn atleast half of the 1000 calories I usually burn in an hour. 500 calories was far better than 0 calories.

After meeting with my coach, we decided to add 5lbs to my upper body exercises to add a bit more of a challenge. My meeting went well and I felt good about not scrapping my aerobics class. So my new motto is, something is better than nothing. emoticon

    Awesome !

    What an inspiration - all that running around you do and still fitting in your workouts.

    I have been off the wagon the last three weeks but back on and riding hard.


    Do drop by as I sure could use some encouragement.
