Wow, am I behind!

I can't believe it's been over a week since I've posted here.  Shame on me!!  Part of the issue is that I had Monkey 3 days this week, which really shoots my schedule to hell. 

Anyway, here's what's been going on.

640 calories
5.4 miles
Ab Crunches 2x30@50
Straight Arm Ab 15@50, 45@60 (I decided to bump it up a little, and it was much better!)
Inner Thigh 2x30@70
Outer Thigh 2x30@70
Shoulder Press 4x15@10 (I wish there was a way to do these with NO weight, cuz that measly 10lbs is killing me!!  I have ZERO upper body strength!)

If you check in on the other blog, you know that I worked this night, and the next, so my sleep and schedule were completely screwed up.  I didn't get to the gym on Sunday or Monday because of it.  I was all set to go on Tuesday when I got the last-minute call to take Monkey, so I didn't make it then, either.  I was NOT happy.  On Wednesday, I also had Monkey, but I was determined NOT to miss another day at the gym.  I changed into my gym clothes before I took her to her mom, and then went straight to the gym. 

I usually try to get to the gym around 6am.  That night, I got there about 5:45 PM.  Talk about a difference!  First of all, the place was PACKED!  I didn't like that one bit.  However, I gotta say, I had an unusually high energy level, despite taking care of Monkey all day.  I was able to kick some major ass on the elliptical.  I really pushed myself because I knew I wouldn't be doing all the machines I usually do, as the place was way too crowded for my liking.  So, here's what I was able to do:

650 calories
5.91 miles
That's right, baby, almost 6 miles!!!

I was a little draggy the next morning.  It had barely been 12 hours since my last workout, so I figured I'd be a little worn out.  I'm actually a little surprised at the numbers I was able to hit.

Ab Crunches 2x30@50

I had Monkey again on Friday, so I missed another day at the gym.  I had intended to go after dropping her off again, but her mother ended up having to work late, so by the time I dropped her off, I was spent.

Yesterday, I felt really run down.  I'm not exactly sure why.  I decided I wasn't going to push too hard, especially since I knew I was going to get an extra workout after the gym.  See, it (finally!) snowed around here yesterday, so I knew I was going to have to go shovel at my parents' house, and then probably at my own house.  Shoveling can be quite a workout, so I didn't want to overdo it, and possibly hurt myself.  I went easy on the elliptical.  I didn't even do my usual interval stuff (I usually go hard for 9 minutes, then kick it way up for 1 minute.  I do that for the whole hour)  I just kept it steady.  Here's where I ended up:
636 calories
5.32 miles (not so bad for taking it easy!)

Ab Crunches 2x30@50
Straight Arm Ab 2x30@60
Inner Thigh 2x30@70
Outer Thigh 2x30@70
Shoulder Press 4x15@10
Obliques 2x30@50

From the gym, I went to my parents' house and shoveled for an hour, then came home and shoveled for about 15 more.  Not bad for a day's exercise, right?
