In order to appease my restless legs, I have been taking walks on my lunch break the past couple of days and it is GLORIOUS! On Monday I walked the mile to and from the library to pick up a new book. I didn't have a reason to roam the library on Tuesday, so I walked a little over a mile to Sonic, parked myself at one of their outdoor tables and enjoyed my new book before walking the mile back to work. It feels so much better to get out during the day!
I finished my other book, Rumor Has It, on Sunday and was dying to pick up another book by the same author. For some reason I am really drawn to books that take place in England or Ireland and Rumor Has It was no exception. I loved the author's voice and all of the characters. I was really excited to start another of Jill's (first name basis) books this week. She makes my elliptical sessions fly by!

I don't know about you, but 50 burpees and tuck jumps in a row did not seem possible to me, so I broke everything other than the high knees up into 25 and repeated the circuit twice. Then, I completed this thighs and glute bonus:

- Bridge & Squeeze, knees together

Do you workout when you're sick? How do you determine when you're ready to get back in the gym?
