Last week was interesting for fitness. It felt very hit or miss. I didn’t do anything Monday. Tuesday night’s kickboxing class was great. I even got a compliment on my pivoting while punching. Wednesday, which I thought I would be dead tired, I ended up doing some pilates. My back started to hurt really bad when I got home from class on Tuesday night and it was still bothering me Wednesday night. I was hoping that some pilates would help stretch it out and ease some of the tension I was feeling there. It totally did the trick! I felt so much better when I was done! I’ve been intending on practicing pilates for weeks now and somehow I just haven’t ended up doing it. I’m hopeful that my love has been re-ignited.
I finished my little push up challenge on Thanksgiving. I am so proud of myself for sticking with it! For the most part it was pretty simple. I would break up the push ups throughout the day. The days where I waited to do them until I got home from work were kind of rough. Matt was really helpful. He was the form police and kept reminding me to keep my butt down. What I liked most about this challenge was how much fitness was on my mind. Whenever I found myself waiting this challenge would pop into my mind and I would get down and do a set. I could really feel all the different muscles I was using by the last set each day. It’s amazing how little time you need to get an effective workout in. It’s really gotten me thinking on how I’ve been approaching my workouts.
Tuesday~ Kickboxing ❤
Wednesday~ Zumba and Toning ❤ ❤ (missed this so much last week)
Thursday~ Kickboxing (fingers crossed Matt goes with me again)
Saturday~ Dancing with my work ladies
Sunday~ Dress shopping with some of my bridesmaids
I’m still trying to decide what I want to do for next fitness challenge. Any ideas?
