Ok! So I'm finding my groove little by little, but still struggling...
I still hate being at the gym, and still absolutely HATE working out. (ay yay yay)... I just have to suck it up because I have to get my whole workout rhythm back.
I really feel like I needed the body rest (you know, as I lost my groove in these past 2 months), but after my medication for the anemia, I realize it was much more exhaustion related. I mean, that anemia left me barely able to move so many times. So now, with my medication for being B12 deficient as opposed to iron deficient (I have Megaloblastic anemia this time), I have a bounce in my step again... perfect.
Last week I did Yoga at the gym, twice! Power Yoga on Sunday...that was my first time. And it's waay, waaaay, waaaaaay harder than it looks, lol. All the men out there that are skeptical that yoga isn't a good enough workout for them... ha, think again baby.
Then, Thursday, I did regular Yoga yet again which was great. Thanks to KAYATLANTA2010 keeping me on track. She holds me accountable. I made it through this first week back towards activity because of her... thank you darlin'!
Also, I made it to the gym 2x out of my goal for 3x that week. Also thanks to KAYATLANTA2010. We stayed in sync all last week checking in on each other. So I missed one, but hey, it was better than nothing. Since I didn't want to go, my only goal for those gym visits was to stay for at least 30 mins... and I ended up staying about 45 at both sessions... so yay me. I hit cardio hard, running on the track and also getting familiar with the elliptical machine again, plus I did some weight machines too.
Unfortunately, because of the last 2 months of inactivity, I feel like my body is all soggy again, so I got to hit the weights. My trainer came back and offered me a great deal, but I'm not sure if I can afford it yet. Such is my life. (sigh)...
So nevermind that.... Here's the fun part of my little blog report.
I went to my first ever archery class last week. Had a great, great time. Who would've thought I would be doing archery one day? I don't know. But I at least pride myself on always finding something new to do. I turned out to be NOT terrible...(laughing)... which is better than being terrible, at the very least... hee hee.
(in practice... I was so scared to let go so they took the arrow away from me, lol)
(aiming... not bad right?)
(and fire! By that point, I was like a pro! They ended up calling my Xena the dreadlock warrior princess, lol. It was sooo fun. )
I didn't burn as many calories as I thought to justify it as a workout, but I definitely had fun.
Cheers to always trying something new... and getting back on track. My goal for this week will be hitting the gym 3 times, plus yoga. I made it Monday so, I've got to fit in 2 more times plus a yoga session. I shall do it.
Hope you're having a lovely start to your week! Bless!
