I will honestly say that I did not work out at all this past week. I walk a lot at work so I guess I was a little active but no where close to where I want to be. One day I'm going to wear a pedometer to see how many steps I log in a day. That would be interesting to see.
But I did work out a little the week before so I guess I'll share all that instead.....
The week before was more of Family Fitness time. Noah really wanted to run with me and I know his little 6yr old legs can't do 3 miles yet. So we went out a few nights and did a mile or so.
Monday 4/22: we went out as a family for a walk/run. Em did not want to walk so she was in the stroller and I pushed. Noah and the Hubs came along too. We would walk a little, run a little. Overall we did 1.16 miles. We have a great neighborhood that I figured out a 1 mile loop to run. Noah did better than I figured he would and I even got to see the Hubs run!!!

Wednesday 4/24: This is the day our week went upside down. I worked, then rushed to Countryside to take Em to a specialist, then raced back to All Children's in St Pete to get Xrays done. Let the whirlwind begin. No working out for me.

Saturday 4/27: Picked up an extra shift on the inpatient unit. Probably walked about 3-4 miles in those 8 hours. Still not sleeping so that walking will have to do
Sunday 4/28: The Hubs's family came over for a birthday lunch. April/May are very busy months in the birthday world for them. I was exhausted and it was my only day off before starting another 5 day work week (11 shifts in 13 days is tough). All I wanted to do is sleep but I ended up grocery shopping instead.
|I got a few minutes to just breathe|
How do you stay motivated? Is it better to keep pushing yourself to be active or take a breather every once and a while? I'm afraid if I take a breather for too long, I won't get back into it......
