Big Monday! Or something like that. Fitness, fitness, and more fitness. Yeah fitness. Yeah me. Yeah positive self-affirmation.
I went to the gym this morning for my second session of lifting weights in I don't know how long. I added one exercise and increased the weight just a hair on three as well. Bonus.
I rode my bike to work and then got on the Expresso exercise bicycle at lunch. I was a touch short on time so was looking for a shorter course and saw that I had done one fun one just a few days earlier. Bingo. My only goal going in was to beat my previous time and I did it. No doubt because I was sandbagging some last time. But that's how I roll, set the bar low and then step over it with ease.
After riding home I want to Breathe Hot Yoga again and today was the second day that this stuff is clicking. Nice. Only NOW am I starting to improve... all the previous practices were just getting to the starting line.
Weight hurt my IT band just a little. I didn't notice it until I hopped on my bike to ride to work. Luckily it had calmed down by the time I got on the trainer at lunch and riding home was fine. Whew.
I had a meeting right after my trainer session so didn't get to eat 'lunch' until about 2:30 PM. It ended up being this giant (24 oz.?) Bolthouse Protein Plus drink and I was burping that up all the way home. Glad it finally settled down before I got to my yoga class.
