So yeah, this weekend was pretty chill. We did some shopping, I did some work around the house, and Anna and I had some fun together. I’m not sure I made the best choices, but what’s done is done, right? As you can see below, I’m increasing my workout times so that I can hit my hour on each machine in the 4 days I’ll be at work. And since I haven’t moved enough this week (or at all), I’ll be doing 4-5 miles the next three nights. It’ll be crazy, but I need to do it. Not to reach some number, but to head into my trip on a good trajectory. I’ll be enjoying myself in Italy, but I won’t go over board. And I’ll be walking a lot. Maybe not running–though we’ll have to see what I do. I’ll be keeping up with my sit ups and push ups, and I might try to get some resistance bands for teh trip (anything to keep this going). I’ll also bring my measuring tape and food journal, but no scale. And that’s scary.
Oh, and I just borrowed a great new piece of workout equipment from my dad that I’ll start using for strength training tomorrow. I’ll describe it and post pics tomorrow–though it’s a little unconventional!
