For the second time recently, I had a pathetic week of workouts that I am going to blame on the weather. We had several nights of nasty weather culminating in an epic storm on Wednesday night complete with decent sized hail, stormy weather with yet to be confirmed tornadoes, and a night spent in our single interior room, a bathroom, with Chris and two dogs.
Although the storms have passed, we are still feeling their wrath. We lost several substantial trees from the tree line on the eastern side of our property and assorted limbs from other trees are strewn all over our yard. Our power has been out since Wednesday afternoon, and with so many other local residents without power it sounds like it could be a while before ours is restored. We are pretty sure that this is the culprit for our power outage.
These may or may not amount to acceptable excuses for bailing on my workout, but they are my reasons nonetheless. At the very least, I think that most of you can empathize with me not wanting to subject myself to more cold showers than necessary.
I’ll try again next week to hop back on the wagon and to finish off New Rules of Lifting for Women once and for all.
