Body Balance.

Happy Friday! My days have all been mixed up this week – starting work on Wednesday makes today actually feel like Wednesday…

I’m starting to realize how much my days have been blurring together: work, coaching, commuting, dinner and sleeping. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m fully immersed in the “tired as all hell” mode during the Whole30, as in, I could barely keep my eyes open during dinner and I was in bed by 9:15 p.m.


I’m sure silly Cindy had something to do with my fragile state.

This morning was pretty intense waking up – my whole body ached and I had a massive headache. Bleehh. Fridaaaaay. Sugar hangover. Can you tell I’m looking forward to snapping out of this?

What’s really keeping me going are my scheduled workouts – I decided that I need to map out my activities during the month of January to simply keep my mind occupied (and not daydream about chocolate).

Calendar testI’ll admit, this is a pretty¬†aggressive¬†schedule, but without planning ahead I know that I’ll simply skip workouts hear and there – plus there’s something magical about crossing off days in the calendar – especially when there’s goals involved. :)

Of note, I’ve realized I need to mix in more endurance and mobility workouts into my schedule. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some WODs, but I want to kick start the year with new habits (and hopefully regain my love of running)…Balance is the theme of 2013. Work hard, play hard – whatever you want to call it: take full advantage of life. It’s short.

Today’s WOD is going to be another fast moving chuck of time:

  • EMOM for 15 min
  • 10 deadlifts @ 95#
  • 10 push-ups

Let’s be real – I don’t think I can manage 150 “big girl” push-ups in 15 minutes, but I’ll do my best to hang in there and drop to knees when needed. Surprisingly, I’m looking forward to those deadlifts because I need to seriously get the cobwebs out…

Do you plan out your workouts? What’s your success rate when you do? Do you skip workouts when you’re sore?

I leave you with a snappy little mash-up from Madeon. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Yes! That would be great – we definitely need to (hopefully I can keep up). :)

    I hear ya girl…a schedule is a must when you have fitness goals. Like a true nerd, I manage my workouts in an Excel chart and highlight the cells for each day I complete. It’s always exciting when I get a whole week highlighted. Keep it up girl!
