Hello world! It has been forever since my last post! Here’s why… my old laptop had a sudden death. Hubby and I finally put in the time and research and bought a new one this past weekend but, it’s been rough. I didn’t realize how much I used my computer until I didn’t have it. Luckily we have a tablet so getting real life things taken care of wasn’t too awful but, its crazy how dependent on the internet we are now! After lots of research and discussion, hubby went to make the big purchase while I was at work, we ended up with the Lenovo Ultrabook Yoga 2. Today’s my first day using it and it’s very different than my last laptop but so far I think I like it.
Since my last post hubby’s parents came out to DC, I’ve been working a crazy schedule in order to take as little time off as possible and still accomplish everything outside of work, and to be honest my workouts have taken the hit for it. My diet hasn’t been perfect but it hasn’t been awful, just really need to get back to those 5 workouts/week. Last night I had a little victory when I got home from work. My back was killing me and hubby convinced me to at least do some of my physical therapy exercises, which definitely helped, and this morning I didn’t even set an alarm to try and recover a little bit. I firmly believe sleep is an important part of overall health and fitness that seems to get overlooked in our hectic schedules.
We didn’t stick with the T25 program very well so I’m going to try re-starting that today but I think, because it is so high impact, I’m going to go into this round with my own plan of combining their workouts with some lower impact ones so I don’t make my injury worse and so I don’t get frustrated when I don’t stick exactly to their schedule.
All this brings me to my November goals…
1. Take some time for myself (I’m getting better about this but still feel guilty when I do)
2. Workout at least 30 minutes, 5 times a week
