Well, I had a rather long weekend. Just one of those days where you had to adjust your schedule because of unexpected situations. Really, you would think by now that I should be used to this, with my husband’s work schedule and us homeschooling but guess I’m not. Ugh!
But it wasn’t really a bad thing, I got to visit my mom before she leaves on her vacation for a while. Though short and quick it was still a nice visit with the family. And a great excuse to get out of the house and change my pace. I just wish I don’t get all too stressed out after, that it usually takes me a couple of days to recover and bounce back to normal. 🙁
Anyway, on my last post before the weekend, I mentioned taking the Sunday off except for the challenges to dedicate a full day muscle recovery. Well that ended up not being the case. Guess I could have still taken it off but I’m fully dedicated to my personal challenge that I adjusted! Hehe!
I proceeded to start my week 4 on Sunday and took Monday off instead. However, because I already made up my mind that Sunday was going to be a rest day, and then quickly changed it, I wasn’t really 100% focused on my workout. It still turned out a great workout except somewhere halfway it, my mind wandered of somewhere and I ended up straining my lower back. Yup! It hurt! I still managed to finish the whole routine but didn’t push it further with the weights.
Last time I attempted to do some sort of workout just to get moving, before I started taking on the challenges, I hurt my lower back. That took me a couple of weeks to feel better again. This time though, I was happy to wake up Monday morning and the pain was gone! Yay! Guess my body is starting to toughen up a little! Lol!
Moving on, since I’m still playing catch up over here, my meal plan for the week is going to revolve around what we have available in our fridge (which is still a LOT!). So it’ll mainly be a possible repeat of our favorite dishes and some easy to make ones. And also because I over indulged on the carbs this past few days, I’m going to try to stick to my original plan of whole foods, low carb, lots of veggies, fruits and meat. Sometimes I think I’m not cut out for this! Because I love food so much! Lol! But I’ll give it my best! 😉
