How did switching to DayLight Savings Time work for everyone? It didn’t hurt me too badly. No way to stop losing an hour but luckily I didn’t have to be up too early. Tried to get up at 7a but was feeling super tired so I stayed in bed until 8a. I could have slept for longer but I forced myself to get up so I could go run. I wanted to beat the crowds on the trail which usually start around 8a. I think the overcast and cool weather kept some people inside because there wasn’t as many people out as there usually is.
My run wasn’t all that great. I felt tired the whole time. I wanted to go faster but my body wasn’t working with me. It was like I was stuck at just one pace. I figured it was the lack of sleep and not eating anything, but I think it’s more because it’s that time of the month – again. It’s a struggle to get my body moving during this time. Oh well, at least I went for a run. I did 3 miles and my knees haven’t bothered me all day. I’ve run 3 days in a row and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to run up to 5 days in a row without knee problems. Really glad that it’ll be lighter out longer so I can do some later runs.
Spent most of the morning at my boys Hit-a-thon and Picture Day for tball. Then it was laundry and picking up the house a bit. I didn’t have much energy to do my usual cleaning. Boys played video games with their Grandpa so I had to wait to do my workout. I was able to rest for a half hour before dinner but for the next few days, I’ll be wanting to sleep All day long.
Turbo Fire Day 35
I finally got to my Turbo Fire workout after putting the boys to bed. Luckily Core20 and Stretch40 don’t have any jumping or running so I can do this one at night without worrying about our super sensitive neighbors below us. For Core20, I really tried to keep my feet up during the mat exercises the whole time. I think that this workout has helped me get a mini six pack :-) Did all the pushups at the end too. After the doing the Mad Abs challenge, doing 8 pushups didn’t seem so bad this time around.
Stretch40 was absolutely wonderful for me today. My body really needed a good stretch. It felt great :-) I’m really pushing myself in this one because flexibility is something that I want to work on. I can go a little bit lower on the forward bends and triangle poses. No pain at all in my left knee when I straighten it. I do the tricep pushups on my feet but I do the hover on my knees. Hovering above the ground is hard! When I first tried it on my feet, I just fell to the ground. lol. I shake the whole time on my knees, but I’m working on it.
It’s rest day for Mad Abs March but I did a 2 minute plank to end my night.
M1: Another Starbucks Spinach, Feta, and Egg white wrap.
M2: 4 Strawberries and 1/4 c. of raw almonds. This was so yummy :-)
M3: I had a Luna bar at the park while the boys chowed down on hot dogs. Having the Luna bar kept me from eating a hot dog that did smell pretty good. As soon as we got back home I had some left over Panko chicken, snapea crisps and 2 clementines.
M4: 5 dark chocolate almonds.
M5: Salmon burger with kidney beans, spinach, mushroom, and tomato mix with a side of broccoli.
80 0z. of water and 1 Zico.
