The end of Daylight Savings Time
This week I took full advantage of the time change this weekend. The clocks went back on Sunday morning. By 7pm Girl 1 was snuggled up to me because she was cold and we both fell asleep. Come Monday morning, I took advantage of “extra” hour I had gained and went to the gym. I’ve been thinking of doing this for a few weeks now. I’m so glad I did it!
On Monday I did a 3 minutes wuss warm up on an elliptical. Ouch. Then I went to work my legs/gluts. Ouch. I only did 2 machines. One was a sit down squat machine. I could have pushed harder. The other one was a sitting leg lift. Ouch! I did push quite hard on this one. After that I went to the treadmill and did a walk/run. I did 3 sprints. The first one was for a full minute at 4.5 mph. WOW. I was even early for work! Woo!
On Tuesday I worked out my chest and back. I did not hold back, I pushed quite hard for me. Now that it’s Wednesday, OUCH. Walking was on the agenda today. I seriously thought about wussing out on the gym this morning and I can’t let myself do that. Getting to bed at a decent hour is also a must.
Another point I should make is FlyLady’s Before Bedtime Routine. I mentioned it last post and this is when it really comes into play and the amount of time I spend in the gym. Make up my gym bag and lunch before I go to bed. Trying to take advantage of the time change to get a jump on things.
