Despite my new resolution to get up earlier, I still feel like I am not getting everything done I need to get done. I feel like I have less time. It’s crazy.
Sunday I was fidgety and decided to go to the gym early instead of waiting for spin class. I went and did a spin workout that I had on my iPhone for 50 minutes.
Monday was the day I started getting up earlier, granted between 9 and 10 isn’t EARLY by anyone’s stretch of the imagination, but earlier than between 12-2pm. I got things done and then and went and did a New Rules of Lifting for Women workout at the gym.
- 10 kg x 15 reps (twice)
- 15 reps (twice)
Seated Cable Row:
- 25 kg x 15 reps (twice)
Dumbbell Step Ups:
- 8 kg x 15 reps || 30 cm (twice)
- 10 reps (twice)
Yesterday I ran some errands with friends, had a nice lunch out, and made some returns as well. I was sad to return the tops I got at Gap last week, but the scoop necked ones looked funny on me, but the v-neck ones look fine. Weird.
Before I left, I took this adorable picture of Molly.
Despite the good time, I was grumpy because it was POURING and WINDY all day long and by the time I got to the gym I was soaked. My leggings and skirt were gross. I need a longer coat. I’d have worn my raincoat, but it isn’t as warm as my North Face.
Something good happened yesterday. I got contacted by one of the schools who are interested in helping with my research and I have a meeting there tomorrow. At 9 am. Eek! Getting up at 9 is one thing, but 7? I am going to have a hard time.
I went to spinning class last night, which was killer. I literally had charlie horses in my calves but I didn’t let it stop me. Despite the cramps I still was outriding most of the class, which made me feel good. (Conceited but good.)
I was pretty sore, so I made sure I wore my compression socks for as long as possible. I need to get another pair so I can trade off.
Today we got up early again (10 for me, I was tired). We headed to the gym early for New Rules lifting B.
- 40 kg x 15 reps (twice)
Standing Dumbbell Shoulder Press:
- 6 kg x 15 reps (twice)
- 32 kg x 15 reps (twice)
- 5 kg x 15 reps
- 7 kg x 15 reps
Weighted Exercise Ball Crunch:
- 10 kg x 10 reps (twice)
I think tomorrow will a well deserved rest day unless I can get into a spin class. It all depends on how tired I am tomorrow after my meeting and everything.
The rest of the week looks like this:
Fri: New Rules lifting day A
Saturday and Sunday: Spinning
