Tuesday

I’ve been so lazy for the past month. It makes me feel awful! When we were in Nice we walked at least 5 miles a day and I lost 5 pounds even though I was eating pasta everyday.

I took Freckles for a 1.5 mile walk today. Then I did a HIITMama’s workout that looked like fun.

“With a continuously running clock complete 5 thrusters every minute.
From 0:00-5:00 use 10 lbs
From 5:00-10:00 use 20 lbs
From 10:00-15:00 use 30 lbs
Continue adding 10 lb. every 5 minutes for as long as you are able.”

Thrusters:

Start standing with weights at shoulder level. Squat. Stand up while pressing weights overhead.

I had my iPod running a stopwatch and Pandora on the iPad to entertain me. I figured my main problem with this workout was going to be boredom. I planned on switching the iPad to Netflix but then that ode to squat workouts, Baby Got Back, came on so I stayed with the music.

Wednesday

I planned to do the next HIITMamas workout but I was pretty stiff. I decided to go for a walk. Freckles decided she was coming too. Apparently this is our thing now. I tried to sneak out without her because it isn’t exactly a workout with her stopping and sniffing all the time. I’m not sure how she knew what I was up to but she was glued to my side and was not letting me out of the house without her. We did about 1.5 miles.

Little did I know when I typed that I was “pretty stiff” that it was only the beginning.  On Wednesday my thighs and butt hurt.  I spend most of the day getting up and down off the floor.  I was pretty pathetic at it.  My tech for the day had also done a heavy leg workout the day before.  He was pathetic too.  At least I didn’t groan when I got up and down.

On Thursday everything felt better except for my inner thighs which suddenly decided to hurt like crazy.

I have been going for 1.5-2 miles walks most every day.  I’ve been doing some stretching daily to get my legs moving again.
