Operation: Get Up And Move – Week Three

So two days ago the high was 63 degrees and it was sunny and beautiful, and this morning our yard is buried under close to 12 inches of snow. What the heck winter?

I actually debated whether or not I even wanted to post an update for the past week, it was that bad, but then I decided to be completely honest and lay it out there.

Last week was basically a bust. I won’t try to make any excuses for it – even though we were traveling through Tuesday, Kevin and I packed workout clothes AND the weather was gorgeous on Monday and Tuesday… and guess where our workout clothes stayed the entire trip? Yeah. The hotel even had an indoor pool and we packed swimsuits…which also stayed in our bag the entire time. Exercise fail.

Once we got back to Virginia the weather was not gorgeous, and we got hit with some more polar vortex like temperatures topped with the delightful added bonus of a wind advisory AND a severe thunderstorm warning. I basically spent Wednesday and Thursday evenings burrowed under blankets and generally feeling grumpy about being cold. Another fail.

Friday I was actually productive but unfortunately my productivity didn’t include any exercise.

Saturday dawned a balmy 47 degrees and although it was cloudy it was definitely warm enough for the Husband and I to take our coffee outdoors and spend the morning on our patio. It cleared up around 11am and turned into a gorgeous day – and I finally took advantage of it and went for a run! We’re still having some pretty high winds, but the sunny sky and the warm temperature definitely made up for it. I ended up running two miles through our neighborhood, for a total of 21 minutes. Yay! Total time: 21 minutes

Sunday was my birthday and because the Husband had to work, my sister and brother-in-law drove down to meet me for church and spend the afternoon with me. My intention was to order pizza and then take everyone on a walk through our neighborhood. What actually happened is my brother in law took a nap and my sister and I watched movie previews on vudu.


Total Miles: 2 miles

Total Minutes: 21 minutes

The good news is that it won’t take much to improve for next week!

  1. Hey, nothing wrong with pizza and watching previews on Vudu…. plus you forgot we watched the songs in Grease 2 also! 😀

  2. Don’t beat yourself up, everyone has a bad workout week from time to time. All you can do is start fresh this week. Also, the snow is getting really ridiculous and NEEDS to stop!
