Weekly Workouts Recap: Walking and Yoga

Hey-hey, it’s Hump Day!

As promised, I continue posting my weekly workouts recap on Wednesdays for you guys, even though my 30 Days Active Challenge is over.

I had a pretty crappy week as far as activity goes. It’s been a while since I ran! I just wish there were 48 hours in a day 🙂

So here’s what happened in the past 7 days workout wise:

{WEDNESDAY}

Hubby and I went for a walk. I was a beautiful evening, low humidity and nice breeze. We covered some good ground there 🙂

{THURSDAY}

We had a Yoga class at work. It was won-der-ful!

There’s nothing better than yoga, and especially in the middle of the work day – it’s my chance to recharge, reset and rewind.

I love that my company offers this free opportunity for its employees.

I didn’t make my steps goal that day… I guess I could count Thursday as a rest day.

{FRIDAY}

Totally slacked on my regular yoga class at 5:30 PM. The steps were really low, too.

{SATURDAY}

I didn’t really care for the cycling class that was going on that day, so I slept in and did some yoga late morning. We had an active Saturday (with berry picking and a soccer game), so I finally met my steps goal of 6000 steps that day.

{SUNDAY}

On Sunday I pretty much worked on my Kitchen Mileage all day – getting food ready for the first week of my Whole30 while my husband was working on our water heater in the basement. I made a bunch of food and took a bunch of steps.

{MONDAY}

I finally decided to do something about my steps and went for a walk at lunch time.

The weather was beautiful for it! I walked around the housing development near my office, and then headed to my Monday cycling class after work.

The class went very well this Monday – I had 2 new students (always exciting), one returning student after her first class with me (yay!) and a bunch of regulars.

My riders had such a quiet determination this Monday! I don’t think anyone said a single word during the class – they were so focused on what they were doing!

Now can you believe that with a goal of 6000 steps a day I went to bed on Monday with the following on my FitBit screen? My OCD was obviously off duty that night. weekly workouts

{TUESDAY}

Another rest day and lazy steps.

So, my friends, I officially declare myself a looser this week – 2 yoga classes, 1 indoor cycling class, and 2 days out of 7 I met my 6000 steps/day goal.

Looking at this post you could think I’m 80 years old. I don’t feel that way and I refuse to be that way, but I’m not loosing sleep over the past week.

All that matters is that I see it, and I’m going to take action.

I’ve just bumped up my goal on my Fitbit to 10 000 steps a day and I’m intended to meet it.

Wish me luck 🙂

Tell me: how was your week workout wise? Have you been full of energy or tired and sluggish lately?

Take care, friends, and come back next Wednesday for another report!

  1. My workout week wasn’t bad. I doubled up on boot camp last Wednesday and then went with both Group 1 and Group 2 on the sprint cycles. I rested the entire weekend and ate virtually pretty good – I saved the wine for the weekend. So no complaints here. I can tell my sprints and 1-mile warmup run is getting faster. I want it under 8 minutes though. I was at 8:26 on Wednesday. BOOOO! #wowlinkup

  2. Didn’t have the best week myself run wise. Hoping for a good run tomorrow. Hope you have a better week too!

  3. I’ve been doing PiYo about 5 times a week the last two weeks. And some days I talk the dog for a walk, I need to step it up.

  4. Lots of different activities, good for you! And whoa, the Whole 30 thing sounds daunting, will be very curious how that goes!

    I’m trying new things to work around a back problem, and am discovering that even doing things I kinda hate beats not doing anything at all! Am in a much better mood since I discovered swimming, even if I can’t say I”m lovin’ it. 🙂

    • Hey there, Crabby 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
      The Whole30 thing is actually not that hard at all – as long as I can have steak and sea food I’m willing to give up pretty much anything 🙂
      I hope your back gets better. I know how much it sucks to be held back by anything when you want to do something.

  5. Oops, you have Comment Luv and I didn’t put in my URL! So here’s another gratuitous comment to see if it works…

  6. Monday- swim 1800, Tuesday- run 4, Wed. Ride 12, Thurs. run 4, Fri. Swim 2000, Sat. Run 6 Sunday Ride 21 (mountain bike) So I had a good week – only 7 workout hours (I usually go over 8) but it was a busy week at work! Nothing wrong with being 80…I see many active 80 year olds. (I am almost 61). It’s a mindset and a lifestyle. That’s all it is…you either love it or you don’t.

  7. I’m thinking about getting a FitBit using my Walgreens Balance Rewards in December. Seeing what you are doing with you Flex activity band makes me want to get one. #wowlinkup
