Yesterday was just one of those days. I got up really tired and was just in one of those lazy moods. I just wanted to sit on the sofa, drink tea and watch TV all day. Obviously, with a 9 month old that never happens but I did stay in my PJs all day and just pottered around the house playing and snuggling Sienna.
I had a run ‘scheduled’ at 5:45pm with my Dad, he usually runs 10k so I was a bit nervous! I die at 5k but wanted to push myself. Well, that did not happen. I don’t think i drank and ate enough and I just did not have any energy at all, I think that is because it’s nearly that ‘time of the month’. I always lack energy the week leading up to it. I couldn’t get in the zone either and just wanted to stop every 2 mins. But i did complete my 5k even if it took me 35 minutes! Although my average pace was 6:27 which is similar to what I do when me & Warren run 5k. So even though I stopped to walk a lot more, when I was running, I was running faster because it averaged out. Do you get me?!
So even though it was harder than normal, I guess I still did ok. We are going again on Saturday to see if I can improve & hopefully I’ll fuel myself better. It also say I burnt 390 calories which I don’t believe?! I’ll have to check that my weight is correct on it.
This morning I’m just chilling and doing some housework and then Sienna & I are walking to the park later and meeting Warren’s mum, sister & her boyfriend for playtime & dinner while Warren is at football. That should be lovely, so nice to get out!
At the moment Sienna is napping & I’m having a nice cup of hazelnut coffee from Beanies & chocolate from ohso. Perfect 🙂
Question: Do you ever find you’re not in the mood to workout?
Today, I really wanted to get a workout in whilst Sienna napped & Woz was at footie but I had a few bits of house work to do first, which meant it needed to be quick. I remembered the HASFIT 15 min insanity workout we used to do and knew it would be perfect.
I’m not sure if I just put more into it than I used too or if it was my new Zaggora fat burning leggings I was sent, but wow did I sweat! I was dripping from my eyes, lips, everything! Gross I know, but it means it was effective. I will definitely be doing this a bit more! A WIN for short workouts & Zaggora leggings!
For my lunch today I wanted something different, we had some chicken & wraps left and pesto sprung to my mind. I had a look on some of my favourite blogs for a recipe and Courtney came up trumps with this Lightened Up Pesto recipe.
Although mine lunch as a whole wasn’t as good as their panini’s, the pesto was delicious! I have some left over for tomorrow 😉
Now I’m off to bake brownies and have a relaxing night!
Question: Have you found any good recipes today?
This week I’ve been struggling for time & energy, so it has mainly been walking! This makes me so annoyed because I really want to do great workouts but I’m exhausted and even if I get started, 10 mins and I’m done! ARGH! I think it’s stress, so me and Sienna have a new schedule that will hopefully give me more time and less stress meaning better workouts! 🙂
Saturday; Family walk
Monday; Short easy walk.
Tuesday; Blogilates gentlemen workout & 30 min kickboxing workout.
Thursday; 30 day shred level 2 & Tone It Up Sleek & slender abs
The kickboxing is a workout I used to do a couple of times a week with Warren when I first started to lose my baby weight. I hadn’t done it for months and while I noticed my fitness has improved, I clearly haven’t been working those areas much as my muscles are SO sore. My trapezius & triceps… ouch!! It’s good pain though 🙂 I’m going to be adding this back in to my workouts, I kind of forgot about it but it’s so fun and a great workout!
