I’ve been gone for a hot minute. I had some stuff to do, like get this wonderful, beautiful woman married! Maybe I’ll post more photos later, once all of them have come from the photographers. For now, this awesome one shot by my fiancé of my father and I walking her down the aisle, which was a huge honour:)
I brought all of my running stuff to try to run while we were there, since the hotel we stayed in had a fitness center. But I had such terrible jet lag, I could barely drag myself out of bed in time to do anything, let alone earlier to try to run. So I’ve been off fitness for like 2 or 3 weeks.
I’m trying a new workout in the mornings. You can see the link to it HERE. It’s not very difficult, but I’ve learned I don’t like difficult, or long, so this is good.
~ It had to be short, since I don’t have a lot of time
~ It had to be adjustable. This is a short circuit that I can add to, if I want to do another exercise, and it can be extended if I want to do more than once.
As it stands this morning, I did the circuit twice. I wasn’t able to do full push ups, though, since my strength is pretty low. It’s summer, so this was a good one as it’s quick and won’t cause me to overheat. Squats and planking require minimum amounts of sweating, so that’s good.
We’ll see how effective this is. I’m going to try it for a month, and alternate it out with my morning yoga routines. But I’m going to try to do SOMETHING every morning before work, and take the days I’m off work, off!
It’s not much, but I don’t need much. I’m happy enough with my body (my thighs came back!), so this is to build strength and try to keep my energy up. We shall see!
