Weekly Workouts

Hey there! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’ll get to recapping mine tomorrow, but for now, let’s talk about workouts!

Lasts Week’s Workouts

  • Monday- I did all sorts of things at the Wellington BSC! I went on the elliptical for 20 minutes to start, and then I ran the stairs 5 times and completed heavy strength workouts: legs, arms, abs… with stair runs in between. Killer! Loved it.

  • Tuesday- I did 2 rounds of my Got 20 Minutes? workout and 2 rounds from a workout that Athena posted on Instgram. I literally died and was so sweaty after and I can’t figure out why! I mean, it was a good workout, but not totally killer, like how I felt!

  • Wednesday- I ran 3 miles outside in Atlanta and nearly died. Seriously. I have never felt that awful and weak and out of shape during a run before. I finished off my workout with the Reebok core board and lots of core work!

  • Thursday- I taught my My “Farewell” TBC Workout! in SHRED and then taught a kickboxing routine that I came up with while drinking wine at the hotel bar. whoops 😉
  • Friday- nothing!!! Total rest day. Perfect timing, too, because I was totally feeling my workouts from the week!
  • Saturday- Taught Cardio Kickboxing at the Oak Square YMCA. Even though it’s totally out of the way to get there, I love teaching that class so much! 30 people showed up on Saturday and we worked hard! I love the looks I get from people when I throw in crazy stuff to the routine…. they love to hate it!
  • Sunday- Another rest day. I felt like my body needed it and I was home in Maine and didn’t have the time, nor did I want to make the time (I feel like “I didn’t have time” is not a valid excuse for skipping a workout, so I shouldn’t even have said it. I chose to take yesterday off as an additional rest day because, well, I wanted to!).

Next Week’s Workouts

  • Monday- My friend Jess and I plan to film the June “Mommy’s Move’s” video, so stay tuned. If I can get up and do something before work I definitely will!
  • Tuesday- I have to do a day trip to NYC so I will be using that as a rest day. My flight is at 7am and gets home at 7pm, so I think it’s a valid reason to use that day as a rest day!
  • Wednesday- Cardio and then teaching UXF Burn! I missed them last week!
  • Thursday- Teaching SHRED and then kickboxing. Tim and another guy are coming in from out of town for work and I am missing cocktail hour and the start of dinner, but I know I’ll be much happier teaching my classes and meeting up with them after!
  • Friday- Rest as I’ll likely be, well, hungover, haha.
  • Saturday- Teaching Kickboxing at the YMCA. I have a hair apt and then Christy’s bachelorette party that night, so I am sure I’ll be dancing off a few calories, too… my FAVORITE way to burn calories 😉
  • Sunday- My guess is nothing, but hopefully that will change!

So there you have it! A fairly light week on the workout front, which isn’t the worst thing, right?!

Questions for you: How many workouts do you try to do in a week? Do you plan your rest days or let them happen as you feel necessary?

    I usually try to do five to six workouts a week and plan a rest day or two. Sometimes though, I need to let my body rest and take a day off even when it’s not planned. It’s better than ending up injured!

    Friday is usually my day of rest–well deserved after a week of teaching! Plus, there’s always a cold glass of wine waiting for me at our favorite watering hole–BSG. Dancing on Saturday night does count as a workout in my book!! Mom

    I was THIS CLOSE to finally making it back to kickboxing on saturday when I got news that my grampa was in the hospital and had to book it to worcester. I’m glad that you’re teaching again this weekend and I think I can probably make it this time! I have my wedding dress fitting in the afternoon, so I should try and look my best 🙂

  4. Athena @ Fitness & Feta says:

    I usually shoot for five workouts a week with two planned rest days. If I end up doing 6 workouts, great, if not – no big deal. And if my body is asking for more rest days or my schedule just isn’t cooperating — that’s okay too!

    travel safely for NYC and enjoy the time after your Thursday class. Emma and I will help Mom pack up her room this afternoon.
