Here is a different post between the detox-series. As you all know I have many things on my plate at the moment but there is one thing that I want to keep with me no matter how busy I am, and that is finding time to move my body. So how do I keep myself fit at the moment? I thought that I would give a glimpse of how I train throughout the week. If you have time management issues, I recommend you to plan and fit your schedules for the next week on Sunday evenings. I usually do this.
My weekly workout schedule looks like this:
Monday -core and HIIT training:CX workout at the gym (30 minutes, sometimes warm up running 15 minutes). This is a LesMills class and it is very effective. One of my favorite classes!
Tuesday - Active Rest day:At the beginning of the week I like to have one or two evenings which I spend entirely at home with my family. In these days I do house chores and spend some time outdoors with my son. Usually this involves some sort of movement walking or stretching depending on how I feel.
Wednesday - Toning up:I finish my work at 1 pm so I ' ll have some time to do a quick HIIT workout at the gym (45 minutes) before I pick up my son from preschool. After this session I feel so pumped up and energetic. Again, I have the evening all free to do as I please.
Thursday- Rest Day or Active Rest Day:Depending on Wednesday's intense workout I might do ying
yoga or otherwise just stretch. I know that I will have intense workout weekend so I just might rest if I don't feel like doing anything. I find that it is important to have these exercise-free days to keep motivated!
Friday -Pure Cardio:My favourite day of the week because it's time to play football! Our practice usually lasts about 60-90 minutes. I have to admit that there is nothing like playing football with friends! I get the best exercise kicks from these workouts!
Saturday -Toning up/ CardioThese days I can have either a gym session or go for a run depending on the way I feel. I love to do morning runs so if the day will be busy, I will do a quick run in the morning or if we don't have anything special planned for the weekend, I'll go to the gym in the morning.
Sunday - Cardio:This is the second practice relating to football. I go for a longer run with my team mates. Again this is one of my favourite trainings of the week! We usually run about 60-75 minutes on a steady state.

I try to have two rest days in a week because I find this is an absolute must for my recovery. Also if I am feeling stressed out and my muscles are sore, I will keep extra rest days. There is no point in stressing your body beyond its limits. Treat your body with respect and nurture it.
Joy to your workouts,
