Well, this week meant it was time to return to normal life again. Which meant back to work, errands, appointments, cooking and a little fun thrown in here and there. If only we could stay on vacation forever…..but then I believe it’s called retirement….right? And I am not even nearly close to that yet!
One thing I did not miss this week were those steps we had been training on for weeks prior to this trip.
Yes, they made my legs feel so strong but they also took away my gym time which I love. The gym is my place to go for mental health treatment….a good workout is great for the mind. As of next week, by the time I get done working and dinner is over it will be dark, which means we plan to return to the gym on a normal basis.
Sunday I came down with what I call “plane plague”….you know…the every time you fly you get sick kinda thing. Which really put a bit of a kabosh to any big workouts because my head, throat, body….well let’s just say everything hurt.
So here is what I did manage for workouts this week:
Sunday: 4 mile hike with my son on an area trail
Monday: floor weights/stretching, 3 mile walk with all the ghosts and goblins in our area
Tuesday: 30 minutes on the recumbent bike, and weight lifting
Wednesday: 30 minute recumbent bike, floor workout, 3 mile walk
Friday: floor workout with weights and stretching
Saturday: 4 mile hike with a friend
As for meals this week…..I made a big batch of veggie soup and a big batch of slow cooker beef stew. This way we could eat a meal off both and freeze the remainder for quick, grab and go meals for lunches since our freezer meals were running a bit low.
And to top off the week, I was treated to an awesome dinner of hibachi/sushi with my brother. WOW, was it fantastic!!!!
