My Workouts This Week (4/6/15)

I have been unemployed since the last week in January. It was a surprise to me, but I do believe everything happens for a reason. While being unemployed I have reconnected with family and friends. My Mom and I were finally able to go and visit my step-sister for a week in Texas. I have also reconnected with a few of my friends I hadn't talked to in a while. It reminded me that a job is important, but I need to remember my family and friends.

While unemployed I knew I wanted to focus on my weight loss and reading. Lyndsey (my personal trainer) had talked to me about the classes she teaches and I knew I wanted to try some of them. I knew I wanted to try her C.S.I. and TRX class. The Friday before Easter I was offered a job and I will start on April 20th. I am extremely excited about this new opportunity. So after Easter weekend I knew I wanted to try and go to as many classes as possible before going back to work. Her is what I did this week.

          MONDAY: 60 minutes one-on-one with Lyndsey
                             60 minutes tabata (I joined a class Lyndsey teaches Monday nights at her church)

          TUESDAY: 40 minute walk on treadmill

          WEDNESDAY: 45 minutes C.S.I. (Cycle Strength Intervals)
                                     45 minutes TRX

          THURSDAY: 45 minutes C.S.I. (Cycle Strength Intervals)

          FRIDAY: 68 minutes walk/run on treadmill

I am sore! Every step I take, every move I make! Spring break was this week so I was able to squeeze into her Wednesday night TRX class. I have been wanting to try it and was glad I was able to go this week. TRX suspension training uses your body weight and gravity to do common workout moves.Lyndsey has had me use TRX before for certain moves over the years, but I had never done a full workout with only the TRX. It was a good workout and I am happy I got to try it this week.

My plan is to workout once this weekend, but I have not been feeling great today (Saturday). I am planning on getting a walk/run in tomorrow since I have only gotten one in this week. Plus my upper body is super sore. It was great to get all of the classes in and try some new things. I have definitely enjoyed the C.S.I. class and will hit up the class again next week before heading back to work. It is taught early Saturday so I may have to try and hit those up once in a blue moon once I am working. :)

What did you do this week? Did you try anything new?
