I have a feeling this weekly wrap is going to be short and sweet. I had big intentions (I'll be using this word a lot this year) for the first week of the new year but they kind of all just flopped.
I don't know for sure, but I assume my gym was closed on Monday. That's okay though because we went to a birthday celebration/lunch for my pappy and aunt, and then did a little after Christmas shopping. I bought a new tree skirt and some different colored decorations for my tree since one of my intentions this year is to paint and re-decorate that room. The day wasn't all lost though because I got in 3.1 strong treadmill miles in before showering and settling in to watch the season premier of The Bachelor. Who else watched?
Tuesday I went back to work. I don't even remember which days I did what but there was NO gym time this week. Instead there was some more shopping, running errands, and one half @ss run on the treadmill. I was doing a simulated route and for some reason it stopped right before I reached 2 miles. I thought about starting it over but my heart wasn't in it so I just threw in the towel.
I hope I can get my heart into doing more substantial treadmill workouts because I really do like coming right home after work and spending time here at the house with Baylee. I know that I am invited to take Baylee to the gym with me, but I don't want to abuse that privilege.
By Friday I had a feeling I might be coming down with something. I felt fine but I was sneezing all day at work and my nose was starting to feel raw. When I woke up on Saturday morning it was official, I was sick. Needless to say Saturday was a lay-around-the house day.
By Sunday I thought if I pretended to feel better then I actually would but that didn't happen. I did muster up enough energy to go to the grocery store and to put my new lab flag out.
My other lab flag said "Merry Christmas" so this one is perfect now for winter.
We got a dusting of snow on Sunday afternoon and after that it was hard for me to convince Baylee to come back in the house. In fact, she was nudging me the entire time I wrote this post because she wants to go back outside in it. It's not even enough snow to roll in so I'm not sure why she's so excited.
Next week is a new week and I intend to stick more to the plan!
Do you feel you can get just as good of a strength training session in at home as you can at the gym?
Do your pets like to play in the snow? -M
