After the overindulgence in Vegas the previous week, I really needed to get back on the healthy bandwagon this week - and fast! The Sunday before was a good precursor - a Dozois cardio strength and calories totaling about 1450. But I'll have to keep it up!
I'm ditching my yoga/fusion/stretch workout this week in order to get in some additional cardio to burn more calories. Maybe I can do some extra stretching on the weekend; it just always feels so good!
My feet are still hurting from Vegas and now my legs ache from Michelle Dozois' workout on Sunday. But here we go...
Monday: Jari Love's Get Extremely Ripped 1000 - Workout 2
Waking up, it felt way too early; I'm obviously still on Vegas time, two hours behind. I stumbled into some workout clothes and started moving as soon as possible. I like this workout, though the lateral lifts always get the better of me. I filled in the rest of my 50 minute workout time-slot with additional leg work and the push-ups/sit-ups at the end of Workout 2.
Tuesday: Amy Dixon's All Around Energy on FitnessGlo
Wanting some cardio, but not crazy intense cardio, I found this level 2 (out of 3) workout on Glo and thought I'd try it. It alternates cardio and body strength segments. This was the first full-length Amy Dixon workout I've tried and, while I mostly like her style, I don't like her non-stop gabbing through the entire thing. I mean, she literally never stopped talking. I'm used to cueing, not constant gabbing, and I found it distracting. That being said, I may do this one again. The intensity is good for those days you don't want to feel like you're dying when working out.
Wednesday: Michelle Dozois' Total Body Cardio & Strength on FitnessGlo
I actually tried to do a different Dozois workout on Glo this morning, but, for the first time, Glo messed up and wouldn't load the video. Since I was barely conscious and not capable of complete brain functions at 5:30am, I chose to do this workout again, for the second time. It's a very good one - classic Michelle style and efficiency.
Thursday: Jari Love's Get RIPPED! Slim & Lean
This morning came and I was a tiny bit more conscious than yesterday morning. I got through three strength segments with Jari, alternating with my own cardio intervals. My hamstrings have been super tight and painful since Tuesday, I think, so I tried to get a good stretch in afterword. I have no idea what's going on; my hamstrings are usually quite cooperative.
Friday: The Firm's Bootcamp: Maximum Calorie Burn
The last time I did this workout, I realized it would be the perfect morning workout. The cool down pops up at about 45 minutes into it, which is perfect! I was a bit more alert this morning which was good - there's some high impact cardio in this! And I always forget how hard it works me!
Saturday: Michelle Dozois' Cardio Interval Burn on FitnessGlo
I was really looking forward to this workout and I liked it as much as I remembered, thank goodness! I did the workout + bonus block + stretch. Whew! I also added on a 10 minute ab workout. That's 1.25 hours of working out, peeps!
Sunday: Michelle Dozois' Cardio Strength 2 on FitnessGlo
This was my first time doing this workout and, oh my goodness, it's a doozy. There's more floor work than any other CS and it was super tough. Sweat was pouring off of me 15 minutes into it. This was also my first attempt at one-arm burpees. I was mostly able to do them, though my left arm is definitely weaker.
Tuesday: 1345 (eating the same things; I like routine!)
This week I really needed to stay on my diet and I'm proud that I did. Next week will throw me some curve balls so I need to be prepared.
I definitely got my money's worth out of FitnessGlo this week! And I really do love it. If you need to shake-up your workouts, Glo is a great way to do it. For only $12 a month, you have TONS of workouts at your fingertips. And you can cancel anytime!
