Week Ten: Peak 10 Challenge #2

Really, only half a week to go!  We leave for our cruise during the dark morning hours of Friday, so only four more workouts! 

I must say that I'm really feeling an overall sense of exhaustion now that the challenge is coming to an end.  The break will be good.  And, once I get back, I'll hit it hard again, though not with another challenge until after Christmas.

Monday: McLean's HIIT - Bodyweight Circuits

It's been a few weeks since I did this so I subbed it for Anytime Anywhere, which I'm glad to shelve for at least 8 weeks.  Ha!  McLean's HIIT, interspersed with Tabata, is difficult - but it's gotten easier for me, which is amazing.  I love seeing progress!  Yoga did not happen today as I had meetings all afternoon.  I hate missing yoga!

Tuesday: Cardio Strength 1 on Glo + weights

Wow.  I did the CS at 5:30 in the morning, which was a bit of a shock.  I made it through and even managed to do every peak.  The last circuit was skipped, however, since I ran out of time.  At lunch, a co-worker and I did weights; I had to force myself.  Sigh.

Wednesday:  Amy Dixon's Skills and Drills +  Alex McLean's Unleash Your Inner Strength + yoga

I wanted low impact today before my Fit Test (!!!) tomorrow.  And so I opted for these two workouts, doing 25 minutes of both.  Alex gets my heart rate up and keeps it up; Amy has great kickboxing with some jacks and jumping rope.  A great workout!  I was sweating!   My plans changed at work and I was able to go to yoga today - yay!  We had a sub, though, who was not nearly as good as our normal lady.  I got a tiny bit sweaty but also got stretched out so that made me happy!

Thursday: Fit Test + Michelle's Total Body Blast for When You Are Short on Time

My concluding Fit Test was completed at 5:30 this morning.  Yikes!  I was amazed at how well I did, considering the time.  That took 25 minutes so I then did Michelle's new weight training workout on Glo.  It was tough!  But it kept my already pounding heart in overdrive so I liked it!

Calorie Counts:
Monday - 1357
Tuesday - 1382
Wednesday - 1353
Thursday - 1604

Cruise time!  Bad eating will follow.  I'll have a re-cap and conclusion next Monday regarding the end of my second Peak 10 Challenge.  I'm so happy with results!  Now I'm off to wear my bikini in the Caribbean!
