Fitness Friday

Today, I'm jumping on the Fitness Friday recap bandwagon. I've been thinking lately that I want to start keeping track of my workouts in hopes that it will keep my accountable and motivated week to week. I know some people enjoy these types of posts, and other's won't. That's ok, I hope to provide some inspiration or motivation if I can, but ultimately these posts are probably for my benefit.

That being said, I'm not really sure how I will approach said recap posts. Whether or not I will post weekly ones, which day of the week I will post them on, what I will call them, or if I will switch up the title posts. So many decisions! (Also, any input is always appreciated!).

Since this is my first ever fitness recap post, I'm just going to jump right into it. Also, while I'd love to have started this at the beginning of the year, I didn't, and my brain won't allow me to go that far back in time to recall all of my workouts. So I'm starting from last Saturday and working forward from here on out!


Saturday: my official return to the gym! I took in a BODYFLOW class at GoodLife Fitness which is a mixture of yoga, tai chi and Pilates. A great hour of waking up my dormant muscles. Plus the seven minutes of relaxation at the end of the class are the best!

Sunday: the return of my beloved BODYPUMP! I met up with some good friends for this class. I've never before had friends who go to the same gym as me, so this is a really nice treat!

Monday: off. So sore from BODYPUMP! I started a 7-day foam rolling challenge on instagram.

Tuesday: off again. Still sore, and so incredibly tired. Got in my day 2 foam rolling challenge.  I actually went to bed at 9 p.m. for the first time in months.

Wednesday: BODYPUMP. This time, sadly, I had to go alone, but it was a great way to end my day.

Thursday: 30 minutes of hill walk/run on the treadmill, followed by the infamous 8 Minute Abs video that Jo and Kaella have been talking so much about!

Friday: 30 minutes walk/run on the treadmill.


This upcoming weekend I'm heading to the mountains with the Alberta Adventure Girls (AAG) for a girls adventure retreat! We'll be snowshoeing on Saturday and yoga-ing and hiking it up on Sunday (amongst some other fun things)! To say I cannot wait is an understatement! I haven't been this excited for a weekend away since I went to Waterton on a bloggers retreat last fall!
