Went to see my nutritionist this morning. Everything is going well and I just have a couple tweaks to my supplement schedule. I’m starting to feel a slight improvement on my fatigue. She was also right that less is more. I wouldn’t have believed her if she told me to do it. I by accident took 1.5 weeks off from running right before I went on a vacation. Then when I did go out for a run, I was worn out but my legs didn’t feel like lead weights and I enjoyed it. Less exercise is actually helping. I have backed off a little. I was running 3 x’s a week, zumba once a week, throw in a bike ride too, and pushups/tricep dips every other day. With all of that, some days it was all I could do to get the boys fed and in bed before I collapsed.
So now here is what my general schedule is:
Run 2 x’s a week
Kettlebell 2 x’s a week
Zumba once a week if I can
Yoga once a week if I can get to a class
Bike once a week if I can.
Swim whenever I can.
I’m a little looser on getting it all in and I’ve actually noticed an improvement on my fatigue and I’m running a little better. The kettlebells will give me double duty since it’s cardio and strength. So I will still be building muscle and endurance.
Next . ..
Finally got around to getting my second kettlebell workout in for last week. Finished it last night after I got my boys to bed. I was pleased with my form and I could tell I was working hard. Here is the BUT . . . I finished all the sets at the maximum reps with my current 15 lb bell. So I ordered me a 20 lb bell this morning. So YAY!!! for Amazon Prime, that sucker will be here using my 2 day free shipping on Wednesday. I will report back to how much that kicks my butt then.
Finally . . .
My general schedule for the week.
Tuesday: Run on the treadmill
Wednesday: Kettlebell with my heavier bell and repeat the workout I just did. If I am dying I will back up and start the previous workout.
Thursday: Zumba, Yoga (maybe)
Friday, Saturday or Sunday: Kettlebell workout
Saturday or Sunday: Run outside around the lake.
