BURNT OUT MOM WORKOUT

In: Uncategorized

19 May 2009

It has been a long haul this week, my husband was away since last Thursday and finally on the day he is to return, the girls woke up sick. A long week of work and parenting on my own, I was so looking forward to taking them to Riverdale Farms for the day and enjoying. I woke at 6:50am by the first culprit and by 7:45am I was staring at the clock, counting down the hours until my husband gets home (only 12 more to go at this point). He phoned from the airport in Germany to tell me he has left his immagration card at home so he may be delayed or I may have to bring it to him to get through customs. My reponse- don’t get thrown in the clinck, be home by noon tommorrow, I am going to the spa for my mothers day present.

The spa was great I had a massage and facial, I lapped up every bit of pampering I could. I go to a spa about 1x/year and I can count on one hand how many times I have had a facial. I have to do this more often, figure out a way to get away and take care of myself.

I did one workout over the weekend as I still feel the effects of my chest infection, that the girls both have now. In our neigbouhood childrens allergies are getting it into their chest and it is turning into a respiratory flu.

My Busy Mom Workout for the burnt out mom. I performed a Tabata interval workout and used 2 exercises. The modified pullup and the full pushup. My next Tabata was weighted full squat with weighted reverse lunges. I performed some core work, ab wheel roll outs, plank reach, 3 position mountain climbers using the stability ball.

I still find the PUSH UP and the PULL UP the most effective exercises and I will never tire of them, probably because I feel I will never truley conquor them. They are an on going battle for me and for most women. I can take time off squats and return stronger, when I take time off push ups or pull ups my strength drops quickley, I try to perform a few each week even with under the weather.
