Well folks…I have to come clean and admit here that I had another kind of crumby week as far as March Madness goes. For the second week in a row I missed a few workouts and I let it get to me. I had a couple of down days and a busy day that messed up my schedule and I let that make me feel like I had failed.
It’s totally dumb because I really didn’t fail at all. I just didn’t bust it out of the park.
SO WHAT?! Stupid guilt. I still had three pretty great workouts!
Monday – upper body strength training and quick cardio…
Tuesday – totally just didn’t want to go to the gym, so took a walk to the park. Lots of outdoor bootcampers braving the chilly air!
Wednesday – decided to work at night to make time to fit in my lower body workout…
Thursday – super “blaaaahhh" day…just could not make time for the gym and a was grump all day. Noticing the blossoms during a quick dog walk helped.
Friday – decided to be two hours late going to Michael’s so I could try out my new shoes and get in a cardio session…
There was no way I was going into St. Patrick’s Day festivities without a bit of a burn the night before! “Will run for beer” comes to mind!
We had a great weekend celebrating, hanging out with friends and family, eating yummy Chinese take-out and Sunday brunch, and just chilling out all day yesterday. It was just what I needed to brush the slate clean and wake-up this morning feeling renewed and motivated.
I’m armed with a new workout plan for the week, a meal plan, fresh groceries and a good attitude. It also helps that my back seems to have mended itself! March Madness is Motivated!
