I found this past week was hard to get motivated. I believe it is the cold wintery weather that finally decided to get here. I guess we have been lucky in Kelowna, not too much snow this year!
I managed to drag my butt out the door mostly in the afternoons. I like to do morning cardio everyday, but like I said it was hard this week.
I also find it challenging because I teach so many classes and 4 of them I am participating as well so I have to continue training my body parts heavy because sometimes my classes seem more like cardio to me rather than strength training. I do a lot of plyometrics in my classes so my legs get a good workout. This was my training and work schedule:
