Hello everyone! I wanted to say thank you for all of your kind words and support these last few weeks. I finally got my last stitches out this last Tuesday, the 15th. I am having to go to a specialist for one of the biopsy spots, they won't tell me much about it yet but the other was no concern..woopwoop! What they thought was a cyst was a hemorrhage that they drained and as long as it stays away, I am out of the woods on that one.
It was killing me not being able to train. My intestines have not been happy without proper stimulation from movement. If you are new, my intestines have had a lot of trauma and do not function properly. I have chosen to go no meds route and control this by diet and exercise. Continuing on...I had two days of training this week, better than nothing. I would have had three but my Buddy has had croup, bronchitis and treatments for pneumonia:( And, just like all Mommas, I am feeling very run down from the last few weeks', it all just hit me. I have to remind myself, actually my big sister reminds me;) that I am not super woman and have to rest. So, out of fear of big sissy's wrath, I chose to relax the rest of the week so I don't come down with anything before Christmas.
Here is what my two days looked like. They seem simple but I was so soar in my vistas laterals, gluteus medias and latissimus dorsi muscles. Namely my saddle bag and bra strap area if I am correct with my anatomy. As always, I am not a medical trained person, doctor or nurse, or a licensed trainer. I am just sharing what I do:) Please consult a licensed health care person before you begin any physical activity. Here ya go!
*Competition burpee is a burpee but when you go into the plank, you lower all the way with chest to the ground, do a super man and then back up in a perfect form. No hunch back or lowering the hips, tighten that core and butt to support yourself. You can come up on your knees till you get the hang of it.
*Side dip burpee is a burpee but when you go into the plank, you rotate to a side plank, dip your hips then back into a solid side plank working the oblique then up. Next one will be opposite side.
There ya have it, repeat the burpee cycles till you reach 100 for time. Only take brakes as you absolutely have too. My time was 13:04.
Don't be scared guys, this is three 10 minute workouts. I did the first one and I liked it a lot. I actually have her videos and did it off of there but posted this one so you could see it. It felt good! And, I beat my old record, I did 6 sets in 10 minutes even after my healing break. This girl right here is happy:)
No workout, I just rested my throat and lungs and foam rolled my soar muscles...and of course stretched! I started to cough this morning and am loosing my voice :( yikes!
Enjoy guys! I will see what next week brings with feeling better and Christmas. If I am not back before Christmas, Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus to everyone!
