Monday: Post Spider Bite:
The spider bite is slowly healing and I’m finally done with all my meds. I am doing good, glad to be getting back into everything but trying to take it easy and make sure I am fully healed. Which as you can tell is hard for me to do, I don’t take ‘slowing’ down easy, it makes me grouchy, truly.
I have found that I’m weak after being in the sun because I’m not supposed to have much sun exposure with meds I’m on so I decided to get back to everything today since I’m done with my meds. So, today was back to work! Still running despite the heat & LOTS of weeding the gardens and flower beds, it feels GREAT!
So, it’s Friday I’ve lasted all week, done my Body Rock each day and have stuck to my 6 days on and 1 day off. Today was Week 3 Day 1 for me & it’s the Fit test so I will put up my scores so you can see where I’m at. So far my weight & measurements are all still the same. I’m guessing mostly because I had to take a week off in the middle for the bite. I was trying to decide if I should start over or just continue. I consulted the girls and they thought I should just continue, I hadn’t lost that much ground. I am still running 3 days a week and doing Body Rock 6 days a week. I have really enjoyed the difficulty of the workouts and the continuing change in routines. It makes each day interesting. Plus it’s usually only 12 minutes and I feel sometimes it’s not long enough and have started adding a run & sometimes run & ab work to the end to just push myself more. Here’s my results but keep in mind all that jumping is hard on my knees & I took a week off so my scores aren’t that much different, although improved some 🙂
Friday: BR Week 3 day 1 – Fit test:
Squat Jumps 25 / 27
Push Ups 25 / 30
Burpee 17 / 18
High Knees 150 /168
Switch Lunge 33 / 50
Tuck Jumps 40 / 35
Ab work 41 / 50 (crunches)
My plan for the coming weeks are to continue to do Body Rock 30 day challenge, & to continue to run 3 days a week. I still garden/pull weeds and haul water & have lots of resting exercise playing with the kids outside. Cutting back on the carbs in the coming week, a little is good but I find myself eating it more than normal, I don’t know if it’s the heat or what?! So, in the coming weeks I will be watching what I eat and my calorie intake once again, more closely, I’ve been kind of lax because I’ve been so active but I want to buckle down. More garden foods like the salad I made the other day out all stuff from my garden!! YAY!! And it was DELICIOUS!!
I also am planning to spend the day Saturday kid free with my Hubby on the Harley 🙂
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
P.S. My husband got totally busted; a friend stopped me the other day saying my hubby had been spotted ‘hanging out with a young little short haired brunette with glasses’ & they were worried he was cheating on me LOL! I said no worries he was having an affair…. with his wife! LOL! (love living in a small town)
