Misery Loves Company

After a crazy day at work yesterday where I was floated off my unit to go help out on MBU, I was glad I got to go home and put my girls to bed. I then tackled the very much dreaded sorting out of their toys. It took me 2 hours to sort between “keep”, “give” and “toss” piles, but I got it done! I then finally sat down and looked up the WOD online and the little bit of energy I had left simply evaporated when I read this:

Team 36

This is a team workout, based around groups of 3 people. You’ll spend 3 minutes at a rowing station, 3 minutes at an airdyne station, and repeat that sequence 6 times. Each team member will do 1 minute of work at each station and your goal is to achieve as many calories as possible in the total of the 36 minutes.

Another leg WOD and I just started to walk normally after the Bataan on Monday 😦 Better get off to bed so I have a little energy in my tank tomorrow morning.

I got up this morning and still didn’t feel like going to the Box at all, but I got dressed and made my way over nonetheless. It had been a while since I was really not feeling a WOD or going to workout for that matter. I am just completely exhausted. I guess all the stress of the home purchase and the packing for the move has finally caught up with me. Oh well, get moving BabyMama!

I’m still enjoying the mobility part of the classes and I missed the fact that we didn’t have any Skill portion today, but the WOD was 36 mins long, so might as well get started! As predicted, it was brutal. Here were my calorie counts for each rounds:

Airdyne     Row

Round 1:             13             11

Round 2:             16             14

Round 3:             12             13

Round 4:             12             13

Round 5:             11             12

Round 6:             13             14

Total calories: 154

Yep, that’s right! All this hard work so I can consume about 3 apples today! That WOD was horrible and we all looked spent once we finished. I guess it’s true what they say, Misery does love company! I’m still a firm believer that the Airdyne was invented by the devil himself as a means to torture the worst of hell’s inhabitants. However, I did notice something today., I can start to see some definition in my quads where they attach to the knee, there is even (dare I qualify it that way) a small bulge! I guess my legs are getting stronger, so, yay for big legs! If only my belly could tone up a bit. All in due time though! It took me years to put the weight and fat on so it will probably take years to take it off!

I came back home, ready for a nap. Instead, I dusted, vacuumed the apartment and cleaned the bathroom while doing laundry. Now, the girls are down for nap and I’m waiting for Nanny to get here so I can do the same before emu night at work!

Only 17 more days before we move! 🙂
