Fitness Goals – Week 3 Recap

Fitness Goals – Week 3 Recap

Week three…oh, week three. This has been a pretty good week! I completed all of my planned workouts! Yay for fitness goals! The best part is that I felt stronger while doing each of them. Moves that were difficult for me a few weeks ago are no longer as difficult so that means I’ve made some progress!!

I am beginning to feel more energized throughout each day, and I know that’s because I’m working out consistently. There’s nothing like that feeling. You know, the feeling where you know you’re entire body, mind and productivity are improving. It’s encouraging to say the least!

My shoulder is feeling good again after having to modify a few exercises to accommodate the popping and pain from last week. You might want to visit last week’s recap if you have no idea what I’m talking about. I’m just trying to be careful moving forward and modify if necessary.

The best thing of all this week is that my kids are FINALLY well! Hooray! It has been a long few months. It’s April, and we have already met our $3K deductible. Hopefully, that gives you some idea as to how awful the sickness has been in our home this year.

All that being said, here is a recap of the workouts I did this week.

Concerns

I am still struggling with sleep this week. I am working out late at night and sacrificing sleep in the process. Not to mention, my son has decided to wake up once, if not twice, a night for the past week.

I read there’s something called the eight to ten month sleep regression, and I’m guessing he’s in the thick of it. That being said, I’m pretty exhausted, and it’s just getting worse.

Other than that, I’m just trying to take it easy on my shoulder so it won’t give me any other trouble. I’m doing well so far so I’m hopeful that I can continue with my workouts without much concern.

I hope you all have a great start to your week! I’ll keep you updated as I move along my journey.
