Recovery "Week"

I put week in quotation marks because I'm not quite sure recovery will be a full week. I'm not really planning to kill it this week, but I'm definitely going to work out. I spent much of my weekend lounging around and sleeping, and it was FANTASTIC! Today I went to the gym for a 30 minute elliptical workout and stretch. My legs are still a little sore (and I think I have a toenail falling off!) so I thought warming up and stretching were a good idea. I also scheduled a massage for Wednesday night... I CAN'T WAIT! The woman I'm going to is running a special for finishers... $20 off an hour. YAY!

I'm still trying to figure out what to do for workouts now. I'm definitely focusing on the gym, and I'm thinking of having a trainer right me a program that is full body, but core focused. I think I want to work on my abs! The cool thing is that my gym is running a competition right now that I joined in on. It's a team competition (there are 5 of us) and you gather points based on activities. If you take a group fitness class you get 6 points, etc. We can win training sessions and other loot for getting the most points. Should be fun and it'll keep me focused for the next 4 weeks! Could make an awesome transition!

Thanks for all the support during my training! Have a healthy night!


  1. Those team programs at gyms are really good motivators. Keep up the healthy lifestyle. You have come a long way and I can tell you are in a better place now than where you were earlier in the year (less stress?).

    Good job again Alissa!

  2. Yes, definitely in a better place! Thanks for noticing! I couldn't be happier! :)
