Good day my lovelies! How are you? I’m good, my back felt a lot better this morning so I decided to venture to the gym and do a light workout. The only problem is, I’m not very good at doing light workouts. I get too excited and want to do everything. I started off running on the stairmaster then I did some very light front squats. It was so difficult to stick to lighter weights because I love lifting heavy but I behaved. Then I did some strict press ups and finished off with some abs in the TRX and the handstand drills on the ball.
I could feel my back during some of the exercises but as soon as I did I changed the exercise to make sure I’m not overdoing it.
It’s when you’re not a hundred percent when you get an eye opener. I’m one of those who tends to take my wellbeing for granted a little bit. Thinking that my body is always going to perform and be well. It’s a gift to have a body, which functions and everyday everything is well I should grateful. It’s something I need to get better at, appreciating the hard work my body does, because now when I can’t do my usual training I feel a bit down and realise how amazing it is when it’s at it’s best. Do any of you feel the same?
I’m really hoping it will get better soon! I can definitely feel it getting better but it’s that fine line of whether continued rest is the way to go or whether some exercise and movement could be the key. I made sure to do loads of foam rolling afterwards to help recovery and now afterwards I’m feeling good!
I just had a snack a little while ago and am waiting on Jamie to get ready so we can go out for lunch/brunch. Yum!
Have a lovely day my dears xxx
