Fitness Friday

The only reason I haven’t posted one of these lately is because my workload kind of took over and stole away from my blog-time, not because I stopped working out.. just, you know, in case you were wondering.

Thank you Sam for hosting this fun link-up!

So last time I mentioned that I still hadn’t made it back to dance. Well guess what.. 3 weeks into Uni I finally finally finaaaally made it back. And it felt AMAZING.

Friday:

I went to Barre a Terre and my favourite Jazz class. I haven’t made it back since (I wanted to go on Monday but had to finish an assignment and then somehow ended up staying home eating tofu then I wanted to go tonight, but ended up socialising too much during the week and now need to work on catching up with EVERYTHING… but going once is already a start, right?)

Saturday

I was so so sore from dance that I considered not going to stretch. But I did. And it was painful – lesson learned. Note to self: your ukrainian trainer does not understand the concept of pain and will not let you go back to doing basic splits because that is “kindergarten” and only 2 + blocks for over stretching is acceptable. Oh well….

Sunday

The usual Bodypump class (still loving it) followed by kabocha eating and napping. Now you know why my assignment took over most of Monday…^^

I still love my SLC sweater. I wear it over my sports clothes or when I am out with the munchkin. It’s so soft and comfy! Need to get a UZH one 🙂 #collegeswag

Monday

Rest day – assignment writing. Next Monday I am planning on going though! Pinky promise (especially because the next assignment’s deadline isn’t until Tuesday so I can def leave the house for an evening class or two)

Tuesday

Same old, favourite dance class 🙂 and a delicious dinner at Tiffins, just fyi 😉

Wednesday

I had meetings for the Media and Communications “Fachverein” (English translation suggestion?), so didn’t make it to dance.. but I am now part of the party and event committee 🙂 go school spirit!

Thursday

I had so much energy and decided to dash to Bodypump because I wasn’t sure if I would make it today. I am going to a party hosted by the psychology department’s “Fachverein” and wanted to get some work done because my concentration span on Thursday let me down BIG TIME while trying to read… so much so that I actually choreographed for an hour or so to clear my head. Plus it was a beautiful day and I took Seti for a few walks to load up on some vitamin D.

We’ve been doing the new release for about a month now at pump so I decided to finally increase my weights: 11 kg on both sides for squats, 3 kg increase, 3-5 kg for chest (I switched in the break from 5 to 3, we were using free weights), back: 6 kg, 2 kg increase, biceps: 2.5 (not free weights which is tougher) and shoulders: 2.5 kg, 1.5 kg increase. The shoulder track is the last and most deadly as my arms are basically dead after 5 minutes of bicep work.. but it is not as painful anymore so I am definitely getting stronger! Fun fact: I was standing in between to mega muscle men and squatted almost the same amount of weight and lifted only 1-2 kg less… I received a high five at the end from one of them 🙂 talk about #girlswholift

Now I am off to finish summarising a lecture and then I will be getting ready to leave 🙂 Have a wonderful Friday!

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
