Sunday: rest day
Monday: 45 mins treadmill
First family day in BC...woohooo!
Uh oh. The first feelings of sickness starting washing over me late afternoon, but I made myself go to yoga in hopes that all the stretching, relaxing and overall zen-ness (is that a word?) would help ward things off. I did feel a bit better but by the time I went to bed, I was feeling awful.
Bah. I absolutely hate missing workouts, so I was so pissed that I woke up sick and extra mad that I was missing a double day. Sob.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Friday: bootcamp a.m./PISE bootcamp p.m.
Morning bootcamp was the usual, mostly hills, stairs and running. Because I'd missed the Wednesday strength class, I asked Josh if I could make it up on Friday as M had said that the Friday classes have generally been a circuit that was less cardio, more weights. Um...not so this class, as we ended up doing a circuit with the airdyne bikes...I swear, these things are the devil. After class I was exhausted, hair plastered to my head as I was sweating so hard the whole time, and I'm pretty sore today as we did a few exercises we hadn't done before. I know I'm weird, but I love being sore.
We had full intentions on doing a 10K run, but I was busy in the morning and by the time I got home, I was just so tired from Friday's classes, I just couldn't face running so we decided to push the run off until today. What was I so busy this Saturday morning, you ask? I went to a grocery store tour that was offered to PISE members...a registered dietician takes a small group around the store and it was seriously awesome! I consider myself to be fairly savvy about nutrition but there was a lot of stuff that I learned and it was cool because she tailors it to each group's interest. Normally the group size is six, but there was only three of us which I didn't mind at all, because we could ask a lot of questions and the two ladies I was with were great. Two thumbs up on this one, I'll be telling other PISE members to take advantage of this.
Soooo...food wasn't bad this week but not awesome either. I was feeling the need for comfort because I wasn't feeling well so maybe a few things slipped past my lips that I shouldn't have had. And...it was Valentine's Day and we had to have a few chocolates to celebrate, right? Right?!
