It's pretty safe to say that for the month of December my workouts were pretty non-existent. I took on what started out as a part-time seasonal job, that really ended up being full-time job, which completely shook up my schedule, especially because it was a varying schedule that had me working nights and weekends, something I haven't done since I lived in Atlanta 4 1/2 years ago. I actually loved the job and hated that it was just seasonal but it's definitely better than nothing.
Last week, with the holidays and my birthday over, a new year and decade to my life (I'm 30 now....ahhhh!!!) beginning, it was the perfect time to get back into working out and losing some the weight I gained working in a candy store (even if it is some of the best candy).
2014 in Savannah started off with pretty much two straight days of rain, so my workouts were confined to the comfort of my home. I tried an HIIT workout that was posted in facebook fitness group I am in and it really was a killer workout.
Friday, the rain finally stopped but it was cold (and I am well aware that almost every part of the country is A LOT colder than where I live, but none the less it was cold), but I knew I needed to get a run in. It's been far too long, but it needed to happen.
The run didn't go as well as I would have hoped but I knew I couldn't expect my best run after such a long break. It was also really windy and I got a really bad side cramp during it too. But I finished and that's what matters. It's not exactly giving me high hopes for the 5K this month but I'm still doing it even if I need to take some walk breaks.
Saturday, I took a rest day. Between my photography business and my DIY blog, I had a few blog posts to write up and a ton of pictures to edit.
Overall, getting back into the workout groove is feeling pretty great and I can't complain. I am hoping to get back to my Schweaty Sunday posts but I am not promising that will be a weekly thing. I'll do my best but we all know how that went last time. LOL!
How was getting back in shape for you after taking an exercise hiatus? Was it tough or did it feel right?
