Friday Fitness Bits

My husband had knee surgery on Wednesday. I’m very fortunate to be able to work from home most of the time these days, so I have been looking after him. Boy it keeps me hopping though! I’m running downstairs to check on him, and back upstairs to my home office a LOT more than usual. That’s got to be worth some exercise points, right? Right.

I have to say, though, I thought I was much more badass at this Hardbody workout until I did it with somebody watching (he’s set up on the couch in the living room, where I do my workout). With him there I was intensely aware of every time I took the easier modification or stopped doing it a motion or two before the trainer on the DVD. I don’t think it’s good for me to have somebody watching, I feel very self-conscious! I mean, he was reading a book, but he was there.

I’m hoping for cooler weather tomorrow. We’ve been having an epic heatwave all this week, the temps have been 100 or over every day. No running outdoors in that mess! Tomorrow it should drop by a good 20 degrees, so I’m hoping to get a run in first thing in the morning while it’s (hopefully!) nice and cool.

    No need to have been so self-conscious, love. It’s very humbling to watch someone who is such a bad ass just killing an exercise routine I couldn’t even hope to do, surgery or not. You are awesome!

    I have been wearing a fitbit lately, and a fun challenge for me is to increase the number of times I go up the flight of stairs at work. Now I go downstairs to talk to my coworkers instead of using the phone.
