Back in the Saddle Again

Back into my gym routine...just in time to get a head-start on the holidays. I wasn't sleeping well nor did I have a lot of energy, so I headed back to the gym. Lo and behold, after pumping some iron and working up a decent sweat a few days a week, I'm sleeping like a baby, I have more energy and I'm craving sweets and carbs a lot less...though I am hungry often.

At the gym today I jumped rope for about 5 minutes as a warm-up, followed by uneven push-ups using a small medicine ball under one hand with the other flat on the mat - repeat until exhaustion, then switch to the other side.

Followed those with Russian twists and v-ups with said small medicine ball between my knees. Then I did 20 up-downs, followed by 20 minutes on the hill climber treadmill. Some stretching to top it all off and I went home pretty tired.

I'm gearing up to start beginner yoga, but there may be waves in the water tomorrow so I'll probably put Yoga off until Saturday. Only get waves and warm water so often this time of year.

Until next time!
