Today is going to be 50 degrees in Chicagoland, and I saw a bird and a squirrel. I’m pretty sure spring is on its way!! This winter has felt like forever and I can’t wait for nice weather and to spend time outside.
Danny and I went to the gym yesterday morning. We worked on back and abs. Usually we do biceps also but my wrist is sore so we skipped biceps this time.
The rest of the day we spent relaxing and enjoying the fact that it stays light out longer. Yay spring!
The Bikini Body Mommy DietBet officially started today! There’s still time to join if you’re thinking about doing it! I started out my day with a normal breakfast – Fage Greek yogurt with strawberries and two egg whites.
At the gym, I started with the Bikini Body Mommy strength workout. I did it once and then did some shoulder exercises including lateral raises, upright rows, overheard presses, front raises, cable lateral raises.
After my shoulder workout, I decided to try out the treadmill. I haven’t been on the treadmill in a long time and since I’ve been avoiding jumping exercises for the most part, I decided to see how my Achilles tendon felt. I walked for three minutes and ran for one minute for a total of 21 minutes.
My Achilles felt fine at first, but the longer I went the more I could feel it starting to hurt. I finished up my walk/run and then foam rolled and stretched. It felt nice to run again but I don’t think my Achilles is going to agree. It’s so frustrating to be over hip surgery recovery and then have this happen. My plan is just to take it slow.
Have a great day!
- How’s the weather where you live? Are you ready for spring?
- What are you most looking forward to about being outside? I can’t wait to run outside, take family walks, and go on bike rides!
