Hey Heyyyyyyy! It's time for Workout Wednesday with Skinny Meg!
This week I traveled for 3 days but I still tried to get in some workouts. On Thursday morning - this is a biggie, folks - I got up at 5:45 in the A.M. to get in a little Jillian before I headed out of town. I am SO not a morning workout person...don't get me wrong, if it's the weekend, I'm all about waking up and getting in a workout...but I despise setting my alarm to workout. So, this was a huge accomplishment for me!
Saturday was our University's Commencement ceremonies and although I was going to be on my feet for the entire day, I still got up early and went for a walk on the Potomac River/National Harbor here in DC...it was a gorgeous morning and I just couldn't resist! This is the 2nd year in a row that my buddy Missy and I got out there to walk & enjoy the sunrise.

I logged almost 1,500 workout calories that day - I decided to leave my HRM on all day and I vowed that I would not sit down except to eat...I even did laps around our Green Room during the ceremonies.
On Monday, a few friends and I decided that we'd try the MoveStrong class at our gym. Have you seen this thing? Here's a pic I found online and it's the exact same thing that my gym has:

I cannot wait to own that Bitch again.
Last night I was starting to get sore from that contraption so we decided to just hit the gym and treadmill. I thought running would help to keep my muscles warm, etc. Yah, I think that worked, but by the end of the night, I put Hubs on Toilet Recon because I was sort of afraid I wouldn't be able to get up off it.
Today, I can barely move and for every step I take, I let out a little whimper...but, I love it. Does anyone else love this feeling??
Can't wait to read about my linkup buddies' workouts!
