Ahh, the Peace!

I love PEACE!  It’s been crazy around our house the past 4 days due to the snow and snow days.  Thankfully the kids are back in school today~ Awww….the PEACE!!

Cycle day 3 was yesterday and I’ve come to realize that it’s typically a “tired” almost “sick” feeling day for me.  I think the hormone levels coupled with blood loss can make me feel pretty ICK!  Anyhow…today is better, my MOJO is rising and I have a bit of focus again!  I did get a workout done yesterday at the gym…it was a good escape!

Here’s the workout:

Warm up elliptical- I actually did intervals for 9 mins
25push ups
20 push ups
9x10x4 or 5 more sets
15 push ups

Incline flys
paired with
tricep push downs

Posedown bicep curls
paired with
2sets cable flys and stretching

Cardio- boxing drills in aerobics room, approx 20 mins

I am still struggling with my butt, but I’ve decided with the prodding of my DH, to try and just “leave it alone” for a week or so…meaning- NO STRETCHING, RUBBING, POKING, TESTING etc… I have a tendency to constantly fiddle with my injuries- which may lead to them not being allowed to “rest” and heal.  So that’s my new idea for the week on it :hehe: 

Today’s focus is Balance, so my plan is to do several balance type exercises during my leg workout.  My MMA class got canceled for today, so I’ll be doing a small leg workout and running at the gym instead.  I plan to go this afternoon.

I also plan on catching us up with our Just Do it posts:

Day 15 Diet

Day 16 Balance

Keep workin’ it and stay focused!!
