An Unplanned Week Off – The Shrinking Jeans of April

August 16, 2009 By april

Last week was one of those weeks when life just happened.  I had big plans to have a great week work out wise, and it just didn’t happen.

I got my work out in on Monday.  Felt good about finishing week 2 of Chalean Extreme. Then…

The stomach bug hit.  Tuesday evening and all day Wednesday were spent watching my ceiling fan, emailing people with my laptop on my stomach, and sleeping.

League bowling is going to start soon, so Thursday I had a league meeting (I’m team captain.  Doesn’t that crack you up?!), so Thursday will automatically become an off day.

Then we get to Friday and Saturday.  I just didn’t feel like working out.  I fully admit to being in a funk here.

The good news is that the funk isn’t getting any worse.  After spending the afternoon with my nephew, I do feel a little better.   I even did one of the EA Sports Active work outs this evening.  (Side note: I used the resistance bands for the first time today.  I’m wondering, can I use my own bands?)

I plan on getting back to Chalean Extreme work outs tomorrow.  I will do them.  I promise you that.  I’m going to take the time I spend working out to escape life.

And I may do some painting.  Painting always makes me feel better.

I didn’t plan on taking this week off.  And I probably should have taken this week off, but I did.  There’s no need to dwell on the fact that I did.  Now, I need to focus on trying to get back to it.

So, talk to me.  Did you have an off week?  It’s okay if you did, you know.  But it’s time to get back to it.  So, let’s get back to it together.
