MHB- Week 24- Back At It

 It's my first week back at RushFit and even though I knew it was going to take a lot out of me to suck it up and just plunge back into it; I'm so glad I did. Working out doesn't just give me physical satisfaction it also cheers me up. Those endorphins get going and I'm in a chipper mood headed to work. The sun helps too!


 Day 1- Abdominal Strength and Core Conditioning. I ended up waking at God knows what time and remembered miraculously to set my alarm. Of course, being half asleep I set it for thirty minutes later than I wanted to get up. SO- I only did three rounds of my workout, but it was hard even after taking a two week break! I know.. the ab pictures are a bit douchey of me, BUT in my defense I've worked really hard to get a tummy like that and sometimes I see it in the mirror and I can't resist and snap a picture. It is a bit vain, but I'm going with it anyways..


Day 2- Strength and Endurance. It's time to come clean and explain that a couple of weekends ago, right when our hot water tank leaked I had a little spill and got a concussion. That was the main reason why I took a break from working out. So I took two weeks off of the RushFit and was hoping to get right back at it. Although, I found out that I need to take the RushFit easy. It was leaving me a bit light headed and dizzy, so I had to skip some of the really intense exercises and I only have been going to round three instead of all five rounds. I still feel like I had a good day and ended up taking pictures of Alina and I and my walk to work. So there's no proof that I actually worked out. You'll have to take my word for it!


 Day 3- Fight Conditioning quickly turned into Sleep Conditioning. On Thursday night I got the warning... THE soar throat that Rob had last week right before he caught Alina's hell of a cold. The pharmacist I worked with told me that there was a chance that I could still catch the cold even if I hadn't shown any signs of it while Alina and Rob were sick. I woke at 4 and felt pretty lousy. I decided that I wouldn't chance running myself down by working out in the morning. I chose sleep instead. Yes, I snapped a very sleepy photo of myself right before I dragged my lazy buns out of bed. The other picture is the sad, unused living room where I always set my stuff up the night before. (It's a motivational trick. If I set it up; I have to use it. This was the first time I have had to put my work out stuff away in shame and guilt....)

 There you have it- my sad attempt at working out with a lingering concussion and a creeping up nightmare cold.. Oh and side note- please don't worry about me- all is well in the health department and the fall was minor and I'm fine. I didn't mention it because I didn't want to make a big thing out of it.

 Happy Friday everyone. I tried to link up with Yoga Pants for #BackThatAzzUp but she was AWOL last Friday. I'm going to skip out on it today because I hear a little baby girl yelling for me to come and rescue her from her crib!

I'm so glad you were able to get back into your workouts! And that's a GREAT motivational tip!! Ha! I also hope you're feeling better! A concussion AND sickness? Definitely not a good combination. Get well soon!
