Movin’ forward with flexibility

I posted the question on my Facebook fan page today, as to whether or not people are flexible with their workouts.  As I was driving home from work tonight, my husband texted saying he was running late with meetings therefore our scheduled run would have to be postponed.  I could’ve freaked out and ran without him, but I am so excited that he is embracing running that I opted to move our scheduled run from today, to tomorrow.

So what do you do when you have a night free from running?  Take a nap Cook dinner and housework, of course, finished with some much needed strength training.

I really wanted a nap...just sayin'...

Tonight I made homemade crab cakes with spinach and cornflake ‘crumbs’ to keep them gluten free.  Although I don’t have Celiac disease, I have noticed limiting my gluten has helped my Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I served them with red beans that I soaked and sautéed for HOURS along with cauliflower and shitake mushroom yummy goodness.  Yup, overall delish!  (I only had one tiny piece of bread, lol, I am weak).


After dinner while my husband mowed our ginormous yard, I thought hmmm…maybe I should run.  Maybe…but the yummy food stuffs had settled nicely in the bottom of my stomach, so I opted to clean windows, and do my strength work out which consisted of:

3 sets of bicep curls

3 sets of shoulder presses

3 sets of squats-25 each

50 sit ups

50 push ups

tacking on a 2 mile walk today for good measure

Tomorrow the ‘window guy’ will come and assess our windows…I am nervous after having just spending a pretty penny on 2 sum pumps, but the condensation is getting so terrible that it needs to be addressed.  Oh, and after this lovely appointment my hubby and I have some miles to tackle.


The ultimate point of this post is, are you flexible with your work outs when life stuff gets in the way?

  1. Most definitely. One of the things I have learned with my crazy hypothyroidism is to listen to my body. I could have a run planned but sometimes the body is just not up to it. So instead I just do an alternative workout. I normally try to push through but for the most part there are time that I have to come to terms with being flexible about my schedule.


  2. I LOVE crab cakes! What a great twist on them! I love the idea of using spinach. 🙂
    I am definitely flexible, especially now that I have a kiddo at home. You never know what kinds of crazy things can come up so you have to be able to work around it!


  3. Mmmmm… cauliflower… I haven’t had it in, what it seems, ages!

    Renovations/reparations are always costly! I know that in Canada, we have a program right now under which you can deduct your renovation expenses when you do your taxes. It’s always nice to catch a break, Maybe see if you guys have anything similar?

    Recently, I’ve been waaaaay too flexible with my workouts and skipped quite a few of them, which shouldn’t be the case since I have a Spartan Beast in less than 3 weeks. However, today. I think I realized what’s wrong. Just like in your gif, I need to sleep some more. I’ve been too tired because of lack of sleep and work stress. So it should be an easy fix 🙂

    Enjoy tonight’s run with your hubby! xoxo OLena


  4. Thanks for the tip in regards to renovation-I’ll check it out!!! And lack of sleep is my nemesis for sure….We had a great run, I need to blog about it tonight!!
