Hi Hots and Fits!
Sorry posting was non-existent this week….the Jewish holidays are over for this time of the year so I should be pretty much more available! I spent every other day this week either at the synagogue or at a dinner party.
I have been quite busy with work and I had to skip Friday’s workout as a result. Also, Saturday I had to wake up at the unholy hour of 6:30 in order to drop my dad at the train station (he had a long day trip) so today (Sunday) really was the weekend!
Also – I added a “dairy” to the workout tab, and when you click it, it lists down my workouts per day
Saturday I did a thing I HATE doing because it makes me feel like a compulsive exerciser – I over did my workout (spent about 1 and a half hours at the gym), telling myself I am just making up for my missed workout from the day before (Friday). I absolutely hate doing that because I really believe a rest day is essential for my body, even though I don’t like taking it, and because this sort of thinking is very, very, bad! Basically, I did my usual Fitness Magazine total body workout followed by Fitness Magazine’s 20-Minute, Glute-Sculpting Treadmill Routine. That burned a lot of calories.
Today I got up, skimmed through this month’s Robb Report (I work in the diamond and jewelry industry)
Then skimmed through this month’s Runner’s World (US) and found this interesting article:
I really need to incorporate more flexiblity and stretching exercisers. Since joining the gym I have REALLY neglected my yoga and general stretching. If I can get Elizabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito to get me stretching once a week its a serious miracle!!
Today’s workout was quite interesting and went by very fast. I wasn’t in the mood for it, really, so I just hopped from one place to the other:
- 10 minutes on the arc trainer, resistance 5, 1 minute forward 1 minute back (repeating)
- 10 minutes on the stationary bike, 5 minutes resistance 5, 5 minutes resistance 6
- 10 minutes on the stepmaster, resistance 6-8 every 1 minute
Although I was supposed to do my Abs Routine from Women’s Health, I didn’t really feel like it so I decided to do
- Crunches on the stability ball for one minute
- Oblique crunches on the stability ball (20 per side)
- Repeat one more time
- 15 Knee tucks
- Stability ball plank (10 seconds per leg, rpeat twice)
Anyways, I am off to read this book:
