It’s a Fitness Friday and I feel like I should have some wisdom to impart but it’s not that type of post today. 4 workouts this week. Today I’ve taken off because we’re out of TOILET PAPER and SHAMPOO. That’s when you know you’ve spent too much time at the gym.

Monday I took a class called “Strength and Balance” which is a mix of stretching, ballet, and pilates. I felt sore the next day so I know I must have needed it. Tuesday I worked out with GymBuddyTara — she was like a drill sergeant but sometimes I need that. Wednesday was “Shred It!” which is HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout so lots of jumping jacks, squats, burpies, and that kind of fun stuff. And then Thursday was “Glute Camp” and then I independently lifted lower body and speed walked on an uphill setting of the treadmill for 1/2 hour. Butt day. I’m insanely sore today.

How was your week?

We’re rolling into the holidays with all delicious foods and drinks (drank too much again last night — boo).

How are you avoiding holiday temptations? Or are you saying F-it and you’ll restart in the new year?
