Thought I should make a quick post before heading off to the gym.
Thank you for all of your congratulations. We are all excited here. The three year old asks me when the baby is going to come. And I say, "oh, we have to wait a long time. It's just tiny right now." It's basically the entire school year, which when I think about it does sound like quite a long wait even to me..
I just hope that the tired bug will go away because all I want to do is sleep. It's even affecting my motivation to want to work out. Fortunately my husband "wants" to go to the gym at night for his second work-out of the day so he drives me there. I'm readjusting my work-outs so that I can get done in 60 minutes at the gym. I want to do 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes of weight lifting five days a week. Then, I do my abs and push-ups at home three days a week. Of course this idea could change with the wind.
But last night, I completed a leg work in 30 minutes. I had to cut it shorter than my normal 45-50 minutes and then I did my push-ups and sit-ups at home. I didn't get in my cardio. But the condensed version of working out is something I'm doing so that I don't spend as much time working out but yet I still receive most of the benefits of cardio and weight lifting.
When I was training for the half marathon, I would spend 2 1/2 hours working out on Mondays and Wednesdays because I would run 8 1/2 miles and weight lift for 5o or so minutes. I just can't do that anymore with home schooling and being more tired.
Also knowing that I don't have to "do it all" will make me not dread coming to the gym. An hour is manageable. And then sit-ups and push-ups while just hanging out at night also has a low stress appeal to them.
Speaking of which I need to get to the gym.
