Working Out Week 27 of 2014
July 5, 2014
Well, this past week I got in a minimal amount of workouts compared to my normal schedule. The reason being one; ceilings still being redone the beginning of the week, and two; I came down with some type of respiratory virus as of last Sunday and was not feeling too great.
The workouts I managed to get in were:
- Monday – Ride Bike 2 miles to store and yoga in the evening – 30 minutes
- Tuesday – no workout
- Wednesday – Ride Bike + yoga-stretching – 30 minutes
- Thursday – Yoga – 15 minutes
- Friday –
Ride Bikecouldn’t ride bike as planned – felt terrible!
- Saturday – Yoga – 20 minutes
Monday and Tuesday they were still working on our ceilings but I did feel okay enough on Monday to ride my bike to the store and do a little yoga in the evening in our bedroom (living room was still a mess with plastic).
Wednesday I actually thought I was feeling better – rode my bike in the early morning and did a little yoga-stretch when I got back from that. Then, I got busy with the task of getting my house back together since they were done with the ceilings. I washed walls, counters and baseboards of dust. I then got out the carpet cleaner and cleaned the dining room and living room carpets. They had covered them but I just wanted everything really clean after all the work they did. The ceilings look so much better and nice and clean – see photo of before and after below.
I also had laundry to catch up on since they worked in the laundry room, and I couldn’t do laundry while they were working, so I did about four loads on Wednesday. Well, I guess I over did it Wednesday and relapsed into this virus – or it just hadn’t shown it’s full ugly self yet. I did not feel very good Thursday and even worse on Friday, the 4th of July. I rested a lot on Friday and feel somewhat better today. I managed to wake up and felt like doing a little yoga. Between the house being under construction of sorts and my virus I feel like I have lost a week of time. Even my husband commented on how disruptive the ceiling remodel had been. We would like to do the upper level of our house – our bedrooms – but I don’t know if I can go through another week of displacement and mess again.
I will say again though how much better our ceilings look and even my kids commented on how it seems like the ceilings look higher with that popcorn texture gone. I am enjoying looking up in my living room when I am on the floor working out and seeing the popcorn removed and the brighter, freshly painted ceiling. Below is the photo of my living room ceiling aka my workout room in the mornings.
I am hoping to start my week off next week with a workout schedule of alternating cardio one day and yoga the next. I think if I take it easy today and tomorrow I will feel like myself again and hopefully be over this virus. So far no one else in my family has gotten it and I hope it stays that way.
I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July weekend!
