275 Days!

February 17, 2011

So I counted today, and there are 275 days until the Warrior Dash.  I’m wondering if my obsessive mind will calm down within that time.

Before my husband joined the Recreation Center, I felt like I was starting to get some sort of handle on the chaos which is my home.  I was at least shining my sink every night.  If you are familiar with www.Flylady.net, then you know what I’m talking about.  I was shining my sink, hitting my hot spots, and once in a while trying to tackle the missions that the e-mails would send me on.  I had my weekly dinners planned and was on top of cooking healthy meals for my family.  I felt really good about that. 

But now, I’m so focused on my next workout that my sink is crying to be shined! There has to be a balance.  Hmmmm.  I’ll have to work on that.  I guess I’ll have to get back to the Flylady and start making routines.  It’s just that my workouts are so late so I’m getting to bed later…which makes me not want to wake up that extra 30 minutes early to prepare for the rest of the day.  But there can be no excuses; I just have to make it work.

So, while my little one was in jazz class at the center, I went for my shorter, condensed workout, which consisted of:
  • Treadmill walk/jog-17 minutes, jogging the last 7!  Woo Hoo!
  • Exercise machines, focusing on arms and including abs.
  • Quick 7 minute cool down on the elliptical
I tried the medieval machine once again while working on my abs in between sets.  I also witnessed someone else on this demon machine and learned that it does double duty.  You can do pull ups and dips!  I thought I should try to see if I could do at least 5 dips, but then two guys tackled the machine; I did not want to interrupt.  Really, I didn’t want them hovering while I tried.  So, I’ll put it on the books for next time.

I saw my friend and neighbor (another amazing woman) working out, and Grace Kelly was heading to Zumba as I was getting ready to head home.  All I can say is that there is all kinds of hot stuff working out at that place!  We rock!

Tomorrow I have a training session with a personal trainer.  Hopefully I can get some great insight on how to improve my future torture sessions - I mean workouts.  >=)-
