Addicting Movement and my Farmers’ Market Meal
Hellllo! How wonderful is it waking up for work and realizing it’s only a 4 day week? Surely makes my day. I’ve been reading around and it seems like all of you had very pleasant holidays–we all deserve it!
So the title of this post, “Addictive Movement,” comes from the praiseworthy amount of exercise I’ve been embracing lately and how getting up and getting moving is becoming almost second nature–and NOT exercising is becoming straight up uncomfortable.
This is a huge improvement given a year ago I was NOT regularly exercising (as demonstrated by my 3 posts on the topic) and at the start of the summer I was nervous that changing up my routine with the start of a new job would challenge me to keep with it.
So I’m giving myself a blog worthy pat on the back for this workout archive:
Sunday: 25 Min Swim
Monday: 30 Min HIIT/PEAK Training on Eliptical and stretching
Tuesday: 30 Min Moderate Cardio and stretching, 20 Min Dog Walk
Wednesday: 20 Min Dog Walk
Thursday: 30 Min Moderate Cardio and stretching, 20 Min Dog Walk
Friday: 30 Min HIIT/Peak Training on Eliptical and Stretching
Saturday: 45 minute walk to farmers’ market
Sunday: 15 Min Swim, Ab work, 2 Reps Biceps and Triceps
Monday: 20 Min Swim
Tuesday: 25 Min HIIT/Peak Training on Eliptical and stretching
(pending) Wednesday: Birkham yoga (as in outside) at 6:30PM
(pending) Thursday: Rest
(pending) Friday: 30 Min HIIT/PEAK Training on Eliptical and stretching
To have some definite movement 11 days in a row means something is starting to catch on here. These are days when even when there’s not a definite morning workout on the agenda and I plan for a day off; but I want to expel a little energy so I end up jumping in the pool or taking a long walk.
This just goes to show, once you start moving, your body will crave it. Even in this obscene DC heat!
First I made some pesto out of the purple basil I bought. I term in “Purple Pesto,” but there isn’t much of a purple color.
