Last Week’s Workouts

This past week was a pretty harsh week for me and my fitness schedule.  It wasn’t pretty.  I did a lot of slacking.  And I’m especially disappointed with myself because it’s the second to last week of this INSANITY program.  Why on Earth would I wait until the last 14 days to take time off??

Here’s a couple reasons.

It was my husbands last week at his job.  He has decided to take another position with a different firm.  That’s great and we are happy about this decision, but it created a little bit of a hiccup with our health and dental insurance.  Without going into too much detail, let’s just say we had to crunch in a bunch of last minute dental and doctor’s appointments before the end of the month.  So that has kept me fairly busy.  Then along side that, I lost a bartender at the restaurant so I had to pick up extra shifts to cover the bar in his absence.  (Not an easy feat with a toddler)  I still don’t know if they are looking into covering these shifts for the upcoming week.  One thing is for certain, I cannot keep working those extra shifts.  I don’t have the babysitting resources to cover extra shifts.


So here is a look at what I did, and didn’t do, this week.  

Monday 6/17 – Fit Test and Max Interval Circuit   I was running a little behind with getting the baby down for her nap, so I had to cut the workout short by 15 minutes in order to get ready for work.  I’m actually really looking forward to hearing more about the T25 workout from Shaunt T and Beachbody.  25 minutes sounds like a plan that I can follow without a hitch.

Tuesday 6/18 –   Max Interval Plyo  This was a solid performance.  It felt good, I sweated like a maniac, and burned over 450 calories in the 52 minute workout.  Still managed to get in a headstand up against the wall for a little more #Inversionaday action.

Wednesday 6/19 – Dentist Day  My mother came over to watch the baby so I could go get two fillings and a crown put on a cracked tooth.  I do not like the dentist one bit.  This day was tragic in the sense that I was numb and sore until 6pm(my appointment was at 11:00am).  I was slobbering all over the place that day.  I have to go back to get more work done next week too.   Boo!  🙁  I wasn’t feeling well at all when I came home, so I took the whole day off and rested.  Dental work takes a lot of out me.

Thursday 6/20 –  No Workout   Since it was my hubby’s last week at work, his coworkers took him out for lunch.  I came with the baby and we had a good ole time.  I had to work that evening so getting in a late workout session was out of the question.  I just sucked it up and told myself I’d make it up on the weekend.

Friday 6/21 – No workout  My daughter had an appointment at the pediatrician at 2:30 (right in the middle of her nap time and my workout time).

Saturday 2/22 – No workout  By this time in the week, I had called it a bust.  Going to start fresh next week.

Sunday 2/23 – No workout Felt like a beach bum.


I’m fairly disappointed with my productivity, but I’m not going to let it carry into the following week.

Have you ever had a terribly busy week that prohibits you from getting in your workouts?

  1. Sorry things have been so hectic!

    In answer to your question, yes. Sometimes a week get crazy busy, or someone get sick, or things come up, and I have to write the week off. However, tomorrow is another day, and I enjoy looking ahead to the next week when I can back in the saddle and at it.

    Hope things settle down quickly!
