My Weekly Wrap

My workouts for last week were not much to speak of until I blogged about scheduling in my Friday post. Another irony, right? I just needed to put it our there that I was having trouble following my schedule in order to get back on schedule!

Fitness isn't always easy. Life gets in the way. Work gets in the way. Lots of things get in the way. And it happens to all of us. The best part is, you can start over at any time.

Here's a look at what I did manage last week:

Monday - Pier volunteering - Monday night group 5k run

Tuesday - rest

Wednesday - Hosting sailors to lunch and walking tour of Hong Kong

Thursday - Rest

Friday - Run with mrC

Saturday - Strength training with FWTFL - leg day (at home version)

Sunday - Recover ---> DOMS set in and got worse as the day went on.

In the future, when I'm thinking about skipping workouts because I'm traveling or too busy and how I can just jump back in anytime, I will remember how sore my legs were. SO sore that it hurt to do anything - stand up sit down, sit on a hard surface, everything made my legs scream. THAT will hopefully keep me from skipping multiple weeks worth of strength training!

Anyone else ever find yourself going through this?

I'm a little late, but I'm still linking up with  Tricia and Holly for the Weekly Wrap!



  1. I try not to skip a workout for the reason you mention!

  2. I do at home strength training (more like preventive PT) and it's the first thing to go when I get busy. I need to make it a priority. I did actually get to the gym with my husband recently. Very rare! I LOVE the dresser in your picture. Thanks for linking!

    1. When I had a basement to workout in, my at-home training was so much more consistent. Living in a tiny space affects my motivation big time! The dresser is from W Hotels - they had a shop in China. We probably paid about $20USD for it. The drawers are tiny, but works for storing our workout gear!


I love comments!
