Alrighty folks, my first attempt at this weekly rundown thing. Thanks for stopping by to see how my week went!
Well, I cleaned my house, worked on my blog, and stumbled across this weekly rundown link-up. I set some goals to get at least 5 workouts in this week and work on getting back into the habit of exercising.
Yeah! I got up at 4:45 am. Everything did not go smoothly. I quickly remembered all the things I do at night to make my morning workouts come together. None of the stuff I usually keep in my gym was there. I suppose that’s because I moved so much upstairs because I’m in a cast. Hobbling down to the basement and back is a workout in and of itself. I went up and down the stairs at least 3 times before even getting started. Whew! I was already tired.
My workout was lame, but I can’t do that much in a cast. I was fine with that. The important thing was getting back into my morning routine.
The perks of being home on medical leave are I get to go to my daughter’s basketball games. In the afternoon, I got to watch my beautiful Natalie.
I got some blurry far away pics there too. Go Irish! Love you Natalie 🥰.
Tuesday I got in an upper body and core workout. I swear it was more work getting up and down off the floor than actually working out, but happy I did something. I have lost so much strength. I was back to using 3 lb weights for some of the exercises. That was a hard blow considering I could do a full pull-up this summer, but whatevs. Start where you at.
Another band workout. So boring. I really do not like exclusive band exercises. I do not get sore and even though at the moment I feel like I’m doing something, it just doesn’t do enough for me. I did it anyway. It’s what I need to be doing for now.
So proud that I’m getting back on track. I’m more about getting back into the habit than I am worried about what I’m doing right now. My foot will get better and I’ll be able to do more soon. Thursday was another upper body and core workout. I’ve had to be super creative to be able to hit some of the muscle groups.
Yeah! Awesome week!
More boring band work, but tada a solid week!
Rest day! Um, I don’t actually ever sit still. Saturday I was playing in the kitchen. I made coconut milk from scratch for the first time. I bought some coconuts and figured I’d try it. It turned out to be easier than I thought. I made ice cream out of it with banana and strawberries too. (I bought myself an ice cream maker! Such a worthwhile investment, only $40.)
I’ve been cleaning all day. I did a quick workout this morning. Didn’t feel like taking pictures. I still have to go to the grocery store. I get my cast off tomorrow! I still will have 3 weeks in a boot, but hoping in 3 weeks I can start biking and swimming! Going to find out tomorrow when I can bike and when I can swim. I’m going to see what he thinks about swimming with a pool buoy between my legs so I am not using my ankle. I’d be ecstatic if I could start that now!
Okay, that’s it for this week. Sundays are super busy for me so I’ll probably have to do most of my checking in with others tomorrow.
Have a great week! As usual peace, happiness, and joy to my fan club! I love you all, the people that always encourage me!
Thank you ladies for making me feel so welcome.
