Probably should call this post “backsliding” but, in keeping with the theme of the blog…..
My plan to get in shape was to do situps on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – every 1 1/2 hours (along with bike riding); and pushups on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. This was working quite nicely as long as I was out of work. But I started a temp job two weeks ago (less time), the weather turned colder (less bike riding), and I caught a cold for a few days. So I’ve been backsliding for the last few weeks on my fitness regime.
Today is turkey day and the bird is about ready, so I jumped on the bike for a spin around the lake. Wow, two weeks “off” really hurt. Even though there wasn’t much traffic around the lake my time was sloooow. Oh well, I’m still ahead of where I was a few months ago. So, today the challenge will be to do those pushups with a tummy full of turkey in a few hours!
