So, this 12 days of Christmas Challenge that I joined at my gym is totally working. Last night I so would have blown off the gym, but I didn't because I had to go do 45 minutes of exercise to earn my sticker for the challenge. So, when my husband left to go curl, off I toodled at 8:00 at night to do my thing. There were 3 other people in the gym. It was lovely. I did a hill program on the treadmill. I upped my speed and incline from the last time I did it. It is weird. Now that I "run", I don't really feel like I've worked out if I walk. I checked my pulse all throughout my workout, and it was up where it was supposed to be, so I know I was working out, but....if you're wondering why I didn't run - it is because I'm tired. I feel worn out from Christmas. I will start running again on Jan 7.
I'm really looking forward to the fitness classes I have coming up in January. My week will look like this:
Monday: Weight training/Water jogging class (45 min of each)
Tuesday: Salsa lessons with husband
Wednesday: Fun with Fido classes with dog or belly dance (haven't decided yet)
Thursday: Personal trainer session and maybe belly dance, if not Wednesday
Friday: jogging and curling
Saturday: Yoga with husband
Plus, daughter really wants to go to the gym before school, so I will go with her Tues, Wed & Fri and do some easy peddling on the bike - which really helps my knees.
Of course, all of this moving around isn't going to matter a bit if I don't stay on plan. I'm feeling frustrated because 20 pts just seems to go so fast. I know if I add more 0 pt veggies to my diet that would help. Mmmmm, so much to ponder. So little time. 85 days till bathing suit.
Still time to join up in the SparkPeople challenge. We have a lovely group of ladies in the challenge.
OK, have a healthy day bloggers!!
