Why Is This Week So Long?

Seriously, it feels like it’s been going on forever.  How long until the weekend?

I’ve been so sore today.  I started to exercise (gasp) and it’s taken some getting used to.  However, I really want to join the Capoeira club at school next semester so I’d like to try and get in as much shape as possible before then.  I figured out a schedule which I think will work:

Monday: Treadmill Interval Workout — this is an insane workout.  The speed stays at a steady, fast walking pace but the incline goes from 8% through to 12% and then cycles through 3 more times.  It’s some crazy exercise.

Tuesday: Cross-Fit Workout — this one is also really hard.  There’s a warmup that you’re supposed to run through twice before starting the actual workout and that in and of itself is its own workout.  By the time I got to the cross-fit I could only do 5 minutes of the 15.  I figure I’ll work up to it.

Wednesday: Rest Day — no formal exercise but I do my normal amount of walking which is quite a lot.

Thursday: Cross-Fit Workout

Friday: Treadmill Interval Workout

Saturday: I’m thinking I’ll do something like Yoga to work on my flexibility.

Sunday: Rest Day — I’ll probably do a bike ride though

Anyway, I’m really planning to stick to this plan (haha).  Also, I’ve started to eat healthier.  Since coming to college, I’ve stopped drinking soda and sugary fruit drinks.  I’ve also stopped eating junk food of any kind.  Now I’m just working on not eating so much.  I’m the kind of person who will eat anything you put in front of me, no matter how full I am.  That will change.  All in all, I’m very optimistic.

On to the knitting:

I started the striping section on Different Lines just like I wanted to.  I’ve gotten four CC stripes done out of the required 14.  On the right track.  It took a little while to get used to doing short rows since I don’t have much experience with them except for turning sock heels.  Now that I’ve gotten the hang of them, though, the knitting is going very quickly.  I love the yarn, the colors, the feel, the pattern.  I’m loving this project!

 

Tada!!  Please forgive the clutter on my desk.  I didn’t feel like getting up to take the picture.  What?  I’m lazy.

That’s about it for today.  Let’s hope this week ends soon.
