I’m so glad that the weekend has arrived! It was a busy week for me with blogging, paperwork, and phone appointments. I’m looking forward to a slower paced Saturday and Sunday. My plan is to thoroughly enjoy some time away from the computer. As usual for Saturdays I’m sharing a recap of my workouts from the past week. I have to admit that I didn’t get in all of the workouts that I had planned. The second half of the week was really busy, so instead of a dedicated strength or HIIT workout I just ended up doing walks instead.
I started off the week with a 30 minute lower body strength workout with Andy Speer on the Peloton app. I’m still really enjoying the workouts on there, even after 6 or 8 weeks of doing them a few times a week. There were a ton of squats and lunges in this workout. My legs were burning in the best possible way by the time I was done!

On Monday morning I started my day off with a 20 minute arms and shoulders workout, once again with Andy Speer. I was definitely feeling it in my shoulders while I was doing the workout thanks to the thrusters, and my shoulders and back were sore the next day. I finished it off with a 5 minute arms and shoulders stretch with Matty Maggiocomo.
I was wanting to do something different on Tuesday, so I opted for a HIIT workout instead of my usual strength training or cardio workouts. I did a 20 minute HIIT cardio workout on the Peloton app. HIIT workouts always seem to fly by for me. I need to remember that the next time I’m not feeling very motivated. Tuesday’s workout was over and done before I even realized it. It’s always a nice thing when workouts feel shorter than they actually are.
I skipped my morning workout and ended up going for an afternoon walk instead. I had finished everything on my to do list but me head was still stuck in work mode. I figured that a walk would help to clear my mind and it was just what I needed. Being at home right now, it can be tough to shift from “on the clock” to “off the clock”. I’ve found that moving from the space that I’ve been working in has been really helpful. On Wednesday that was a walk, but other days it’s been sitting in the backyard to read for a bit once I’m done working for the day.
If I wanted to get my usual morning workout in before an early phone call, I would have had to get up earlier than usual. That didn’t happen, so I opted for another afternoon walk instead. Once again I headed out once I was done work for the day and by the time I got home I ready to make dinner and leave work behind for the day.
My plan for this morning is to do a lower body strength workout on the Peloton app.
