A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Hi and happy Monday! What a crappy Monday to wake up to – it’s in the 40s here in Austin and raining. And it looks like it is going to be like this all week! I’ve been in Austin for over 4 years now and don’t remember the fall being like this at all. Hoping it changes in the next few weeks cause our wedding is coming up!!
Speaking of our wedding, holy stress. Like why do people plan weddings and not just elope?! I know some people enjoy these kinds of things, but I am for sure not one of them. I’ve cried more in the last few months than probably in the last 10 years of my life. It is so many things to do and think about and all this dumb shit that in the end, probably won’t matter. Okay, I just had to get that off my chest.
So why am I talking about this on my workout post? Well life is super stressful lately. Planning a wedding, trying to finish up things at our house because we are having a party the day after our wedding (not sure if I am going to regret that or not), running a business, meal prepping for people, having a new puppy, trying to have a social life, and just trying to freakin stay sane.
Going off of last week’s post, working out is a stressor on our body. It’s usually a good one, but if you are already a huge ball of stress (like me), then you should maybe think about your workouts and how they are going to effect you. This is especially true if you are doing some high intensity things like CrossFit or HIIT training, which I love doing. If I’m feeling a little too overwhelmed this week, I will take a day off or switch up my workout to something not as stressful. Maybe I will actually do a yoga class.
The point is, listen to your body. Only you know yourself best. If you want to push through, then go for it. If you think you’ll regret it the next day, maybe find something else to do. I used to be the person that I would have to workout 5-6 days a week. Now I just want to feel my best and sometimes that means not working out!
