Workouts week of August 12
Sun, 08-12-2012 - 7:05pm
New plans. Sunday - for the first Sunday in ages, nothing. Zumba and the men's Olympic basketball game were at the same time this morning. I decided to not set my alarm, and if I woke up in time for Zumba, I would go..and I didn't, so i thoroughly enjoyed the basketball game. My Dad surprised me with a weekend visit, so I didn't go to the gym was great to spend time with him. Monday - 10 minute bike warmup, lifting for chest, back, abs, run 1 .5 miles....Tuesday - 10 minute bike warmup, lifting for legs, abs, swim(I really mean it this week)...Wednesday- Pilates, run 1.5 miles or swim....Thurday - 10 minute bike warmup, lifting for shoulders, bis, tris...Fridat - run 3 miles, abs...Saturday -Zumba, swim....I am going back to Poland for a week then, so I want next week to be solid. I think I will be more in control of my time in Poland this time - others might be there but I am not part of an entourage, so I hope to fit in more working out...But in case not, I want a good week behind me. I wil still be cooking a lot too as DT is still on limited chewing...hopefully for his sake this is the last week...

I've decided to consider this time as my off season and my workouts to be minimal. I'll take it up once school starts.  

Sun: teach kickboxing

Mon: rest

Tuesday: try for a run in the AM 

Wed: ??? maybe spinning

Thursday; teach step

Fri; another rest day

Sat: Zumba and intro parkour class

Wednesday - yoga and linedancing

Thursday - dog training

Well, I think I did everything except run this week....I have no good reason except I chose sitting at the pool in the sun with my book over running. I did swim today, which was a makeup for Tuesday when I didn't...and I did a lot of cooking, which is good because in addition to standing and chopping, which I am sure burn calories, if I nibble its on fruits and veggies, not carb based stuff. DT is on his own next week, but I think he will be Ok...this week was probably not really necessary but I so loved seeing his face light up when I told him what his bag contained that I kept it up. He is so easy to please...there are only a couple things he doesn't eat, and he never complains..if there is anything I gave him that he didn't care for, he never said so...
