The Hungover Workout

I had the best New Years day gift. I got to sleep in until 11:30! I haven't done that since I was in my early 20's. The hubs woke me up becuase he wanted to workout out with me. What??? Did I step into a complete new dimension in 2009? My hubs wanted to workout with me? This is quite unusual at my house. Anyway, he walked on the treadmill while I did my Wii Fit. Again I did yoga and strength training. The Wii Fit gave me more reps on my exercises which I love. After I did a set of all my exercises, I did them a second time with my hubs. I don't know when I've ever worked out with a hangover, but I did it! A very proud moment. It was a quiet New Years Eve with just our best friends. We did some balance games on the Wii, bowled, and played a fun game on our PS3 called Buzz. It's trivia that you can play against each other or others online. We had a ton of fun and I'm right back on plan (after loosing my mine last night). I refuse to feel guilty or be mad at myself. It was one night of indulgence and I had worked out for 70 minutes and ate light yesterday to compensate. Today, I'm simply tired and making sure I'm drinking enough water. I hope all of you are right back on your plans too! And, thank you to all of my followers. I love that I am not alone out there with my issues!

Yesterday workout:
Ran- 4 miles
Hiked on various inclines- 2 miles for 70 minutes total

Today:
Yoga- Half moon, tree, warrior, chair, sun salutation, Knee Stretch (2 sets)
Strength training- push up/plank, plank, lunges, side twist, leg lifts, tricep dips, opposite arm/leg raises, & sit ups
