Ahh! I’ve spent the last few hours trying to make sense of the healthcare options available to get coverage before today’s open enrollment deadline (way to wait to the last minute…right?). One of the negatives to being self-employed is definitely having to navigate and cover all of this on your own. I feel like there are no good options! I had a disastrous experience with my coverage last year that I won’t even start to get into. Luckily, I’m healthy, rarely go to the doctor and don’t take any prescription meds so I should be good to go with something pretty basic.
I’ve got a playlist and workouts for you this evening. I put together the most fun Valentine’s Day playlist for my yoga classes on Saturday. I typed “love” into the search box on my iTunes library and went from there. This playlist is pretty epic…it includes Bieber’s “As Long as You Love Me.” 🙂
Here’s the link to follow on Spotify. Enjoy!
Quick recap of the week in workouts…
2000 meter row
200 double unders
100 walking lunges
50 pull ups
This was a REALLY tough but awesome chipper. Not gonna lie, I was in a dark place between the 2000 meter row and the double unders but I got through it. It took me 27 minutes to finish. Workout courtesy of Metro CrossFit.
3 mile treadmill run + BodyPump
I did something I haven’t done in months on Tuesday…BodyPump. And I took my first class as a student instead of teaching for the first time in 5+ years. I had been craving a BodyPump workout for a few weeks and my schedule was clear Tuesday night so I headed to the Y. It was such a nice change of pace but the workout kicked my butt! I haven’t been doing high rep/low weight stuff lately. I had to take many breaks!
1 mile treadmill run + lift
10 deadlifts (95#)
10 push ups
10 back squats (85#)
10 GHD sit ups
10 ketlebell swings (35#)
I only had 25 minutes to workout so I hopped on the treadmill for a fast one mile run to warm up and then went through the mini strength circuits. This combo of movements left me so sore…I think it’s because I was busting through it so quickly with minimal rest to get done.
4 mile hill and speed run
I hit the Y for the second time in a week (since I was already there for a CPR recert) for a variation of my favorite treadmill interval workout except a little longer and added in a bunch of tabata hill intervals at 10% incline that nearly killed me.
Hot yoga solo practice
What was your best workout this week?
Is anyone else equally as overwhelmed by picking the right healthcare plan?
