I hope everyone's week is off to a great start! I must admit, mine started off a little rough, but we pushed through and made the best of it. Annabelle was still getting over her cold Sunday night, so she woke up A LOT during the night. Poor thing just couldn't breathe very well. This made for one tired mama when she woke up for her feeding at 5 AM. I also think she gave me a little bit of her gunk because I woke up with a very sore throat. Normally, I just go straight into my workout after feeding her, but I just wasn't feeling it this morning. Yep, I admit it, I sooo did not want to workout. After contemplating hiding under my covers, I reminded myself how much better I would feel after a good workout and forced myself into the garage. After my warm-up set of burpees (I'm participating in a 100 burpee challenge), I felt loads better. Although the workout was definitely harder than most, since I was so tired, it was totally worth it!
I did a nice combination of kettlebell and TRX work for a total body workout that took 25 minutes. I can already tell I am going to feel the split jump lunges and TRX tricep extensions tomorrow. Those two get me every time!
After my workout, I did a some work until little bit woke back up at 7:30 AM. We hung out until it was time for me to head to the studio to teach my 11 AM Barre class. Luckily, E had the day off so he could stay home with Belle and let her rest.
I came home for a quick lunch and then headed back up to the studio for a meeting at 1:45 PM. After I got home from the meeting, we took Belle for a stroll around the neighborhood since it was so nice outside.
We spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out with little bit, and getting a few things done around the house. Luckily, I think she is starting to feel a little bit better.
Hopefully, she will be back to her normal spunky self tomorrow! I'm off to grab a cup of throat coat tea and do a little work before she wakes up from her evening nap. I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
How do you summon motivation on days you're just not feeling like working out?
