Despite my best intentions, I am not fully back on the wagon. Things have been hectic around the office which has resulted in two days of no lunch break...which could mean two days of missed workouts. It also, unfortunatly, means a very brief post. I have managed to keep healthy eating in check with the exception of more than one glass of wine last night and a missed breakfast this morning. What irritates me most about the lack of daytime break is that I had to sacrifice my yoga class lat night to fit in a The New Rules workout or I would be hopelessly off schedule.
I ended up finally getting to the gym at 5:45p.m. I started a new New Rules stage and between figuring out the moves and getting through the reps, I was at the gym a little under two hours.What absolutly killed me in this workout were Single Dumbbell Overhead Squats. See how happy that girl is in that picture? What girl? This girl. Right. She is not that happy....or her weights weight a pound each. That is a seriously tough exercise - try it. I dare you. In fact, the whole of Stage 3 is really tough...my legs are useless today.
The worst part of the workout came right at the end though. As I attempted to plow my way (badly) through jump lunges and jump squats, I could actually see my yoga class start in on their practice. I was insanely jealous. I briefly entertained the though of abandoning my self-torture and joining in ... but decided to stick with the plan, which was to finish the jump squats, chug my protein shake in the locker room and head home. The result? Though I am pleased with yesterdays tough workout, I am ridiculously craving a yoga class. Fingers crossed I make it home early enough to squeeze in a quick practice!
