So, my post Thanksgiving cardio plans have been foiled by waking up sick yesterday. I was planning to jog with my dogs yesterday and today, but I have a nasty cough.
However, I did go rock climbing yesterday! I've always liked rock climbing, but I've never gotten super into it. That might change! I went with a friend from high school yesterday and I loved it. It's fun, and such an intense workout. My upper body is definitely weaker than lower. My legs and core aren't really sore at all, but my arms and back are killing me!
We have a rock wall on campus, and there's open climb nights throughout the week. I know a few people who go so I'm going to make it a goal to do that at least once a week. I should also start adding more pushups, assisted pull-ups to my workout routine. I'm considering taking an aerobics class next semester. At my school I pay a flat tuition for up to 18 credits, and I think I'm at 16 right now. Might as well take as many exercise classes as I can while they are paid for!
Food for this week, planning to make chicken and dumplings. I found a recipe that doesn't use canned soup! Might reduce the butter a bit, and I'll definitely add extra veggies (green beans!). I will probably also use whole wheat pastry flour for the dumplings.
