Since finishing Insanity, I have been slightly at a loss about what to do for workouts. Â I obviously want to just run, but two things are semi-stopping me: the Phoenix heat wave and I don’t feel like my back is fully ready to go full-speed with it just yet. Â I had a minor set-back with it again the past couple days, but don’t worry…acupuncture is here to save the day.
Anyways, so I decided that I would try Cardio Kickboxing at my gym. Â I used to really love cardio kickboxing, in fact before I started running, it was my workout of choice. Â I went there at 8:30 this morning ready to get my sweat on. Â Well this guy (the instructor) was WAYYYY over the top for me (and frankly, most of the people in the class). Â I felt like we was just turning side to side to side and in the middle throwing some jabs for the heck of it. Â I couldn’t follow him AT ALL and therefore felt like I was standing there trying to figure out what he was doing most of the time. Â I hate to say this, but I actually walked out in the middle of class (during a water break) because by this point, I was literally just standing there thinking about how bad I wanted an acupuncture treatment and how much I have to do because tonight I’m flying to Denver to go home for my sister’s and Dave’s wedding:)
Upon leaving 30 minutes early from class, I made an appointment for acupuncture. Â My shoulders and back muscles have been feeling tense the past couple of days, which is the recipe for disaster in me, so I wanted to nip this in the bud. Â An hour and 29 needles later, I feel like a new woman. Â I feel relaxed both mentally and physically… Thanks Carrie:)
When I was driving home, a Whole Foods craving came over me, so I stopped there and picked up a small box of their hot food bar which consisted of roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes. Â For some reason, today I could not turn down the mashed potatoes!
You cannot beat a La Croix for 59 cents.
I also bought this lil’ gem as a snack on the airplane, but…
Anyways, I can’t wait to get to Denver so I can see these people:
And way too many more people to post their pictures! Â Anyways, gotta go do the dishes to
pretend toÂ do something so my husband thinks I had a productive day.
