Life has been super busy! Suuuuper! My day job has been wild lately – big projects, lots of new stuff to learn. I’m busy and I’m happy about it. It’s just a lot of hours.
Trip Fitness is still going strong and I am super excited about everything. In the last two months, Sue and I took the AFAA exam (she passed, I’m still waiting on my results) and got licensed on Pound and Piloxing!
The day before all three events I was dealing with my typical anxiety about people judging me because of my weight. I’ve been really lucky lately that everyone I’ve met at these trainings have been awesome and I’ve felt wonderful after the day was done.
I’m working on ditching the anxiety and living my goal.
Since gall bladder surgery I’ve felt stuck in a rut. Partially because of work being hectic and part of it because of working almost every night at the studio, I just haven’t been eating as well as I should be and I’ve stalled. Now that I’ve learned what I can and cannot eat post surgery I need to get back on eating on a normal schedule.
I’m also dealing with tendinitis in my knee again. I slipped on ice on Valentines Day and twisted my knee. I have good days and bad days with this knee and on bad days… Even my hour of Zumba is painful. But I keep going, because that’s what I do and not working out actually hurts more. I’m trying to find the middle ground between too much and not enough activity. It’s difficult.
Anyway, tomorrow I’m grocery shopping in the morning to restock the fridge and then I’m going to the track to meet my #teamtrio family to walk for an hour – I’ve got a 5k at the end of the month! – then Sue and I are co-teaching Pound, then she’s got BodyFlow which I may try some off to stretch out my knee, and then I teach Zumba.
After that, I’ll come home and get on my grid roller and do some myofascial release. I’m alternating heat and ice on my knee, compressing it and elevating it while I’m at work or at home. I’m also taking my anti-inflammatory meds and my joint supplements!
Monday is my day off from the studio and I’m going to rest, relax and work on my Piloxing blocks and learning some new Pound tracks and new Zumba routines from the comfort of my couch. Then Tuesday morning I will wake up, practice what I watched and made notes on and hit classes this week extra hard!
This week is about new routines and rebuilding my nutritional routine.
And getting back to blogging… The goal is once a week!
