School starts in two days, and I’m borderline freaking out! I worked the last two nights, today the fiance and I are heading to the Pacific National Exhibition (which I’m actually really looking forward to, its a summer tradition) and then I head to school early Tuesday morning.
So let’s recap last week’s fitness. Basically, I did nothing. Actually, I definitely did nothing. Two thursdays ago I went to the ER thinking I had appendicitis, but my gut is unhappy with carbs and sugar. I cut those out and my stomach started feeling better, and then I got bronchitis last Saturday. So the doctor’s orders were to rest and not do anything until I stopped coughing. If you pay attention to my instagram, you would know I’ve literally been staring at the clouds (and my ring) for the last week.
So here is last week’s workout recap!
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: nothing but rest
Thursday: PiYo Sweat
Friday, Saturday: nothing
So it was pretty far away from my goal to workout four times in a week, but at least I ate well (I’ve cut out refined sugar and gluten, added probiotics, and stuck to my shakeology for a meal and my gut is much happier). Fingers crossed this week is better.
One cool thing I did get to do was use my new Armour39 heart rate monitor from Under Armour. I received it for free at Blogfest and used it on Thursday’s workout. The results are really cool. You can get a watch that will show you what is happening while you are working out, but I prefer to start the iPhone app and then walk away. It tells you lots of cool things. Apparently my workout on Thurs was only at 36% intensity, but I hadn’t calibrated it or done my assessment yet, I was only trying it out. I found it really cool, and not a pain at all to wear.
What do you do when you’re sick? Does not working out make you restless? Do you make sure to rest if its ordered?
