As much as I wanted bedtime at 4 today, I made it through–with a smile on my face cuz that’s how I roll. I’m not going to lie, I needed a few hugs, some text messages, a few blog comments/reads, and a phone call for some support today. Thanks guys.
I taught bootcamp and did most of the stuff with my girls. I missed them–and I think they missed me, but maybe not burpees. So we didn’t do TOO many of them!
Bootcamp: February 28, 2012
3x through circuit 1:
- 2:00 jump rope
- 1:30 side plank/plank/side plank (30 seconds each)
- 1:00 plank walkout/pushup
- 0:30 burpees (had to throw em in!)
3x through circuit 2:
- 2:00 walking lunges/jogging between cones
- 1:30 high plank/plank up downs/low plank
- 1:00 squats (regular, plie, jump)
- 0:30 wall sits
It was challenging but not too sweaty or too tough, I don’t think! A good choice for the first one back after a week off, anyways. I even did some of the lunges with them without pain! I backed off when I started to feel anything, but there is progress in the right direction with my hip. I had a massage appointment today and my therapist dug into it and went for it (against what we’ve been doing–avoiding it) instead of working everything around it. She also worked on my neck and shoulders (which were a mess and the migraine didn’t help) and I just felt so much better after the session. I am also going to try yoga this week (Friday, I hope!) to play around with working on the hip. Cautious but willing to take a chance is my best descriptor for this. I’m still waiting on an appointment for the bone scan and have physio scheduled for next week. Proactiveness helps me feel less helpless. I also printed two articles off of runners feed — one about core and one about working the glutes–both of which I’m pretty sure could help me!
Dinner tonight was so random: leftover tofu from Sunday’s TLT sandwiches (which was baked) in a sandwich with my cheeze sauce from last night and a caesar salad. I was seriously getting into my croutons when I realized what I was doing and stopped. Then I read the ingredients, realized I was a little weirded out by “ammonium sulfate” and looked it up. It’s just to enhance food colouring, apparently, but it caught me off guard. Why can’t I just eat food the right colour? I’m not saying it’s bad to eat something out of a package, but I’m going to choose another package without this stuff (FYI there’s another bag in my cupboard that has all normal ingredients I can picture in my mind) in the future. Progress. I stifled my munchies with the rest of my dried papaya, a few dates, and an apple. Now I’m going to have a hot beverage and close down the kitchen, finally! Some days I think I have a hollow leg…or two! And I’m not EVEN doing workouts right now…so you can imagine my appetite when I’m training. I miss training, PS, in case you didn’t notice!
Anyways, when I started this post I legitimately said it would be the shortest I’ve written in a long time, but apparently I had more to say than I thought! Tomorrow’s not particularly busy: school/Gazette/teaching (sound familiar) and hopefully working on my writing assignments! Wish me luck.
How is your night?
Do you ever wonder about ingredients in your food? Do they affect what you buy?
What’s the best workout you’ve done lately? Any ideas for me!?
