My last week - and not even a full week - of Combat! Wow! I can't believe it's been 8 weeks.
I'm a bit sad as this Challenge winds down but it's been a lot of fun and I've seen some good results. Hopefully that shows in the bikini I'll be wearing next week! Ha!
Monday: Combat Power HIIT 1 + BodyFit 360 Vol. 3 - Athletic Conditioning
A Snow Day meant I could work out for longer today. Yay! (Yes, that makes me oddly excited!) I started with Power HIIT 1 and after doing it every other day for the past 6 days, I was glad to say good-bye to this workout for a while. I think it's given me great results but it's a challenge. My legs were already aching as I started the cardio portion of 360 and Michelle didn't give them a break for 30 minutes. Whew! I took advantage of the day at home to do the full 20 minute stretch on this video. I love it!
Tuesday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn Remix
A delayed opening of work meant yet another opportunity for a longer workout. I subbed this CIB for the second round of Combat 45 - not wanting to do it twice in a week. And this CIB always makes me happy. My legs were still achy from the weekend but they got through this workout.
Wednesday: Combat 45 - Power Kata
The last day to do Power Kata... I do enjoy this one and it's nice to not dread the workout you have to do at 5:30 am. This morning, I was a bit rushed so I shaved 5 minutes off my usual 50 minute workout. Snow and sleet meant a potentially perilous commute and I wanted the extra time.
Thursday: Combat Shock Plyo HIIT 2 + my own cardio
My last Combat workout for a long time! I was happy to be done. Because our internet was down, I did my own warm-up and cardio, then rounded out my 50 minutes with Shock Plyo. It was nice to warm-up on my own and stretch my back. I still don't know what's up with that.
I stayed at around 1270 calories on Monday and Tuesday....then we had birthday celebrations at work on Wednesday. We left for the cruise on Thursday, and while I didn't eat bad, I ate more than 1300 calories.
Good news! The new dosage of meds has finally made an impact on my weight. I lost 2.5 pounds! Only 3 or so more to go! Hopefully this means I can lose my cruise weight when we get back. Fingers crossed!
Look for my Combat wrap-up next Monday!
