Welcome to another week of Fitness Fridays! I don’t have much to tell this week. Monday went off without a hitch. I worked out with my Xbox One because it was too frigid out to even drive. The car I’ve been borrowing since mine bit the dust, was so frozen from the below freezing temperatures that it wouldn’t start so I stayed in and did 30 minutes of Mossa Fight, 30 minutes of Mossa Power, 10 minutes of Tai Chi, and 10 minutes of Yoga. The kids are also on Winter Break and Adam spent the week at his grandparents, so no gym buddy this week.
Tuesday was very different. I woke up tired (even though I had plenty of sleep the night before) and cranky. Mother Nature is not my friend this week but I did try the Zumba workout on my Xbox and I can say that I am not a fan. Maybe it was because I was tired and moody but my body can’t move that fast. It didn’t help that while I am trying to work out, Conner decides to start throwing one of his stuffed animals around the living room. Why? Because he was bored! Needless to say, I stopped mid workout and dealt with my now attitude driven 9 year old, who I reminded in a yelling voice, “this is not the day to test me little one! I have a much bigger attitude right now than you can possibly imagine so don’t push me!”
Wednesday I really started to feel worse. I woke up coughing, a major headache and feeling the start of a chest cold coming on. I drank some orange juice but no sooner did I sit down to start blogging and Conner was bored – again! So, I stopped and despite not feeling well, I played some Call of Duty with him and then we did some dancing on my other dance game that, to me, is much more fun than Zumba. After helping him to expend some of his energy, I went back to blogging but an hour later, Conner was bored again, so I was finally able to take him out to the store just to get him out of the house for a bit. There was an unbelievable amount of traffic out so we didn’t get back until late afternoon but he was good the rest of the night so it was worth it.
Thursday I started feeling much better and had a lot of energy so I cleaned my kitchen and went grocery shopping. That was the extent of my physical activity though because by the time I got back, my headache that I had been battling all week came back and I was exhausted. So, I laid down for a bit and when I got up, I played some of my Dragon Age: Inquisition game on the Xbox. Yeah, I got lazy but while I was playing, my character does a lot of walking and running and a sudden thought came to me: “Imagine how many steps I could get on my Fitbit if I was doing this for real!”
Today is Friday and I am feeling really crappy today. I have another headache, my throat and chest hurts, my nose is stuffed up and I still have a mountain of laundry to do. I AM SPENT! So, I am going to spend the day lounging around the house while trying to get some laundry done!
As for nutrition, I failed miserably because as the meme says I did eat too much pizza and instead of ice cream, I had cake. Not the best choice of foods I could have eaten but there it is. Sometimes, even I have to indulge in a little junk/comfort food every now and then.
All I really want to do is crawl into bed and watch Netflix all day.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
