Happy Thursday Peeps! Wait, did I just say, THURSDAY?!?! Wow, this week has gone by so quickly that I have a feeling there aren’t enough hours in the day anymore. Anyways, I said to myself on Sunday morning that I was going to give myself a rest from weights. My muscles have been feeling a little fatigued and I’ve been wanting to focus on just cardio with yoga or pilates for a week to see how I feel after that week without weights. I think it’s good to every so often give your body a little break. I try to do it a few times a year and let me tell you a week without a lot of working out actually makes me feel good when I get back into it.
While searching the web the other day, I found some great articles about taking a week off from working out. Here are a few to check out if you’re interested in taking a week off and not feeling guilty about it…
As far as my plan for the week with working out…I’ve worked out twice in four days and here is what I’ve done and what I am planning for the weekend…
Monday – Off
Tuesday – Cardio (45 minutes)
Wednesday – Off (I planned on doing HIIT & Yoga but wasn’t feeling very good so I passed on it)
Thursday – Cardio (30 minutes) & Pilates (30 minutes)
Friday – Yoga (45 minutes)
Saturday – Cardio (45 minutes) or Off
Sunday – Pilates and Festival walking!
Now with my cardio, I am not doing jogging, I am doing inclined walking that keeps my heart rate up but isn’t too much!
Do you ever give yourself a break?
