Weekly Update – 9/28/15

I was looking forward to the Crawlin Crab 5k, but unfortunately it was cancelled due to the weather.  It was a great week to catch up from life and de-stress.

Monday

Body Flow night! I’m actually starting to like this class a lot.  I like doing different sections to music.  Although the ab track is NOT my favorite.  I can’t believe I ever used to take a 30 min abs class.  Maybe I need to get back to that….

Tuesday

Everything on Tuesday worked against me getting to the gym.  I ended up skipping.

Wednesday

The stretch and strengthen class is starting to grow on me, but I had to go to worship team practice.  My church is celebrating 9 years on Sunday – so we wanted to make sure to get a little extra practice time in.

Thursday

Warm up: Foam Roll

Heart Rate Training: Elliptical for 1/2 mile, keeping heart rate under 150

5 Rounds:

  1. 1 minute on the ReACT trainer
  2. 10 KB high pulls
  3. 5 KB swings

On Thursday, I found out that the Crawlin Crab race weekend had been postponed by 2 weeks due to the nor’easter we’d been having, as well as the impending doom of Hurricane Joaquin!

Friday

On Friday night, we went to get some Mexican food with Michael’s brother, and just had a relaxing evening.

Saturday

Crawlin Crab was cancelled, so I took advantage of it and slept in like a champ!  We got some laundry and other chores done, but mostly we just hung around the house watching movies and being lazy!

Sunday

Sunday was our 9 year celebration of our church’s existence.  It was a great service and wonderful celebration.  We came home, did more chores, got the grocery shopping done for the week, and watched our Eagles lose. I also lost in fantasy football 😦  We also had a little adventure with the stove….Michael was cooking and burnt all our vegetables into the pan.  We think the one burner heats up a lot more than the others for some reason.  While I know there are things you can do to try to clean it…yeahhhh we are a bit lazy. It was so bad we had to throw the pot out – there was no saving it.

There was no saving this pot. RIP.

Have you ever ruined a pot? Did the rain ruin your weekend plans?

Weekly Update – 8/24/15

I felt really good again this week about getting to the gym so much.  I haven’t been working as much on mobility exercises on my own, so getting back to yoga on a more consistent basis has been helpful.

 Monday

Yoga was great, but difficult.  Jaye wanted to keep us in warrior poses almost the entire time.  That seems to really bother my plantar fasciitis, so I was not a happy camper.

Tuesday

Warmed up with some foam rolling and stretching.

5 Rounds:

  1.  200 Meter Row
  2. 10 bodyweight squats

My form on my rowing must have been off, because my lower back became pretty unhappy. So, I finished up with 15 minutes on the elliptical.

Wednesday

We had a small class at yoga, so Jaye decided we’d do partner work.  I’m not a huuuuge fan of it, but the woman I was partnered with was very nice.  We also did legs up the wall for final relaxation, which for some reason I didn’t like.  But yay for trying something new!

Thursday

I worked from home on Thursday, which meant that by the time I got to the gym, I was feeling extroverted and had a lot of energy.  I decided not to go crazy though, because I didn’t want to hurt myself!

Warmup: Foam roll and 1/2 mile on the elliptical

3 Rounds:

  1. 10 half kneeling off-set overhead press (each side)
  2. 10 plank rows (each side)

Then I just did a single round of single leg deadlifts (10 each side).  I haven’t done them in awhile, and when I start doing them again, they tend to hurt my back.

3 Rounds:

  1. TRX rows
  2. TRX pushups

Friday

On Friday, Michael and I spent the night in and watched movies on Netflix.

Saturday

Saturday morning was relatively lazy, but then we went to a big family picnic at work.  They had food, games for the kids, etc.  It was a great time to hang out with people from work in a non-work setting.  After that, we headed to a family friend’s house to sit on their back deck with my mom and stepdad.  They live on the water and it was a beautiful night!

Sunday

On Sunday, we had church, then we headed to our friend’s house for our church Fantasy football draft.  I am less than pleased with my team. We’ll see what happens though!

How was your week? Do you play fantasy football?
