Today has been one of those busy busy busy days. I started the morning out with physical therapy. The PT said that it’s good that although my hip and glute still hurt, they’re not getting any worse from the activity I’m doing.
I’m still trying to take it easy for the most part – I’m just doing PT, BodyPump, and practicing the chest and back BodyPump tracks at home.
I count PT as a mini workout because it can be a little intense sometimes. Today I was there for an hour and a half. I started with ten minutes on the elliptical, followed by the Graston technique. Then I do stretches, bridges, one leg bridges, squats, step-ups, side step ups, and tube walking side to side.
For tube walking, I usually a tube like this:
The tube goes around my ankles and I walk side to side. Today, I was almost done with my 3rd set when the band snapped in half and went flying across the room. Oh, okay.
I felt kind of bad and awkward for breaking a band. Then a lady talking to the receptionist yelled out, “Wow, you’re strong!” I felt a little better.
After PT, I came home and practiced the chest BodyPump track for about 15 minutes before hoping in the shower (my chest and shoulders are sore!). By that time, I was starving so I made a quick salad for lunch. My salad pretty much consisted of anything I could find to throw in it – romaine, spinach, green pepper, red pepper, carrots, onions, cucumbers, croutons, fruit and nut mix, and almonds.
I had a cherry Greek yogurt for some protein and some pineapple.
I also bought a new salad dressing to try out.
Annie’s Naturals Goddess dressing. I am always trying to find a good dressing, and I really liked this one. Annie’s makes some really good dressings – I also like their poppyseed dressing.
After lunch, I went to a training meeting at the gym. It was only about an hour long and we just went over some important information regarding personal training. I also got a nice fat packet with information on every single piece of equipment in the gym to help familiarize myself with them.
The new gym opens this weekend, and I am so excited! Unfortunately, I am going to miss the official grand opening because it takes place the same weekend as my BodyPump certification training, but I think Danny is going to take the kids.
Chicken and fish tacos are on the menu for dinner tonight! Yum!
