A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy happy Monday! How as your weekend?! All my weekends are mostly the same – relaxing, work, and cooking. The weather is freezing here (for us) so I spent most of the time inside. I am really ready for it to get warmer already.
Last week was a full week of working out! I honestly don’t know the last time I worked out 6 days a week! I guess I was feeling good though. It’s also been a long time since I have worked out on a Saturday morning. I used to love getting up and getting a workout in on Saturday to start the day. To be honest, I would be mad if I didn’t get one in. The past few weeks I have been sleeping in on Saturday with the intention of going to the gym, but never getting there. Some weekends I don’t workout at all.
Kinda crazy to think about for me. Someone who would get mad about not working out and now I sometimes take the whole weekend off. My body just needs the rest as of lately. I used to dismiss rest and recovery days. The approach of “how can I get better if I am not constantly working”. Well I’ve been taking a different stride lately and my body appreciates it. Especially in this stage of my life when I am trying to grow a business and deal with stress on the regular, it’s important to recover!
This article was a great reminder of thinking about your longterm goals and listening to you body.
