Weekly Update – January 14, 2013

The past week has been more than a little hectic – work has been crazy, because I’m on my own right now. I sometimes have trouble differentiating when I’m being whiny, and when I’m legitimately at a point where I should complain, so I often err on the side of stoic silence – but right now I think I’m past that point. There will be a few conversations at work this week about workload, on-boarding, and my opinion about why our turnover is so high.

Now that I’ve vented about my non-workout/weight loss life… how about the rest of my week? My eating is on track – I have a post planned to cover this later in the week. My weight is coming down slowly – which is good. My workouts? Well, I listened to my body this week and took a couple of days off – I was exhausted. I’m glad I did.

Hot Yoga

2013/01/07 – 85 minutes hot yoga (90 minute class, sat out 1 pose)

Weight Training

No weight training.

So. Skipped 1 run, 2 swims, and both P90X workouts… and came to the conclusion that similar to broccoli, I hate P90X, I will never learn to like it, and I should just stop torturing myself. I will continue with yoga, and try to find alternate strength training to incorporate. I also need to move things around enough to have one rest day a week.

This is what the early stages of training is for – to work out the kinks in the process!

    Have you thought about trying New Rules of Lifting for Women? I really liked the whole program. The program is set, but you can vary the weight you use depending on your strength. I really enjoyed the program and have just started it over since I’m taking a bit of a break from CrossFit.

      I have thought about it… but I keep putting it off. At the end of the day, I have never, ever found a weight training program I enjoy.
