This week is just not going as planned workout-wise for me. Monday I managed to get my workout it, but yesterday and today, it didn’t happen .
Yesterday, I was just too tired after getting home late from work. Today, I was hoping to be able to squeeze in a quick workout, but it doesn’t seem like it is going to happen. I left work a little late, had to make a stop on the way home, and then had about 15 minutes before my hairdresser Brittany was going to be at my house to do my hair. Normally I go see her at a salon, but she is currently between salons, so doing “mobile” work. She came to my house and did exactly what she normally does at the salon…but for about half the price! Plus she gave my little guy some blonde bangs with the extra highlight stuff that was leftover when she finished my highlights. We both love our “new do’s” ..and Jacko’s totally suits him.
After my hair appointment was finished I grabbed some dinner, since I didn’t have time to eat between when I got home and when Brittany was going to be here. Dinner was delicious…(leftover Mediterranean Veg & White Bean Pasta…photo credit to Jackson, who snapped a shot after stealing a few bites!)
Now it’s 9:30 and I have zero desire to go jump around and get sweaty. Besides, I don’t want to wreck a good blow dry!
My plan is to get caught up a bit tomorrow. I am going to get up early and do my Day 4 Challenge (get up 15 minutes early to meditate and reflect), and then after work get caught up with Challenge #3 – try a new workout. This morning while I was enjoying my Starbucks Chai Latte, and reading posts on the Elf for Health Facebook page, I found two workouts posted by fellow elves that looked interesting and sound quick. I will either be doing this one:
or, one from Women’s Health magazine for a CrossFit style workout:
Click on the link above, or the workout summary pic to see exactly how to complete the workout. They claim there are 4 completely different workouts that you can do with these 6 moves.
I’ve got hockey tomorrow night as well, so that will make up for missing my workout yesterday.
Hopefully I can get motivated to get back on track with my workouts. I’m just not feeling the workout love these days. I need to get my workout mojo back…soon. I guess this is exactly what the Elf for Health Challenge is all about. There are 600 people all with the same goal of surviving the holidays…I’d say that’s some serious support!
How do you get yourself back on track when you are struggling to fit it all in?
Do you have a holiday survival support system?
