Last night, the Dr and I re-evaluated our workout plan. Last week, we decided to try to restart Insanity at week 3, and we only ended up doing it once last week. And I ran once. I worked out a total of two times last week. Now, don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t sedentary most of that time. In fact, on Friday, I kind of wished I had used my heart rate/calorie burn watch to see how many calories I burned spending my entire day cleaning and redecorating my entire house. I was sore afterwards!
The reality is our current situation is making it difficult for us to do Insanity together.
Anyway, here are the circumstances:
- Dr Hub’s phd is (hopefully) nearing its completion. He hopes to be defending early next month. Which means he has been putting in ALOT of long, long, late hours.
- He generally leaves by 830 am, which means we have to get up at 530-6 to work out.
- He generally gets home between 7 or 8 pm. We eat dinner most times between 8-9 (which is bad, I know!) but that’s the only time we can eat dinner together, given our current situation. I tend to E’s night-time routine (or the Dr will do it if he’s home and Ill cook), get him to bed, then start dinner, which results in the late dinner.
- In order to workout in the wee morning hours, we have to go to bed at 10, and that results in only having 2 hours together in the evening. We really want to see more than 10 hours of each other during the week. We generally go to bed at 1130 or midnight (remember how I am not a morning person? I much rather stay up late), so that we can have time to spend together. And if we get up at the crack of dawn to workout, then we are only going to get 5-6 hours of sleep, and we both need more than that to function!
