Week of Workouts

I’m just 1 person who gets headaches. I started the week with one that lasted for days, and I honestly had to dial the intensity back a bit on the workouts. I was definitely not going to be able to do jumping or plyo of any sort without my head exploding. I was also sore from all the squats and lunges from last week, so I modified a few of the squats on Sunday and did butt kicks in their place. 

The most important rule of the game was to keep moving. If I’m moving, I’m keeping my heart rate up. If I’m moving, I’m burning calories. If I’m moving, I’m working. So even though I had to modify a bit, I didn’t find any shame in that. I listened to my body’s needs and still managed a lot of movements that didn’t hurt me.  I did also drag myself out of the house for a few walks with a friend.

As you can see, I also did a lot of new-to-me workout to keep myself engaged. Sometimes I tire of the same sorts of moves, so trying new fitness trainers and different types of routines helps keep me active. There’s nothing worse than just sleepwalking through a workout and realizing you haven’t been putting in the high levels of intensity you meant to.
