Yesterday was my first day back to the gym after my little trip to
and it was exhausting! I only had to do cardio yesterday, but it was awful. I thought I was going to fall off the elliptical! It felt like the first time I ever did cardio on the elliptical. Nebraska
I know I was gone for less than a week and I was doubling up on the gym before I left, but I was still messed up yesterday from being out of the usual routine. My cousin and I were even talking about our gym routines and how missing even one day messes both of us up. I knew it was going to be a struggle to get there today and I was preparing myself, but, man, it was worse than I could imagine!
I always try to cover the clock when I’m doing cardio because it makes it go faster. It’s one of those little mental things I have about NOT seeing the clock; otherwise I spend the whole time staring at the seconds tick away. Anyway, I covered the clock, put on my headphones, and started my 30 minutes of cardio. I was instantly tired and cursing myself for being out of my routine. I lifted my jacket to look at the time clock, because I could have sworn it had been 30 minutes and it had only been 5!
|This is how I was feeling yesterday!|
I kept going, but it was difficult. I was just really tired! That was the longest 30 minutes of my life! When the clock hit 30 minutes I was excited to be done, but I went through my usual thought process of doing more cardio or stopping. Once I go for 30 minutes I feel like I should just keep going! So I managed for about 5 more minutes and finally stopped.
I know my trip was a much needed trip to see Grandma and other family, but it really messed with my routine. As much as I tried to take walks and stay active while I was in
it still didn’t totally supplement my regular routine. I’m going to spend the rest of this week getting back on track. My routine is more important than I could ever imagine. Nebraska
