We had a lovely Fourth of July….and with it came tons of food. It's a good thing I'm getting in plenty of workouts! Ha!
Let's get to work!
Monday: Ilyse's Work Hard, Have a Great Time + PeakFit Pure Cardio + yoga
I finally had a good sleep last night and was ready to work this morning. Ilyse's workout was great…until FitnessGlo crashed and wouldn't load for ten minutes. In desperation, I turned to the only thing I had on hand - Pure Cardio, usually reserved for my Peak 10 Challenges. It was fun to do a few circuits…and then Glo was back up. Yay! At lunch, I did yoga with the new teacher - lots of hip stretching and twists.
Tuesday: Shape's Bikini Body Camp Transforming + Dozois' Calorie Burning Cardio Blast + weights
This was a fun morning of exercise - no dread factor! I did the cardio - led by Michelle Dozois - of the Shape workout, which lasted 30 minutes. Then, I tuned into Glo for Michelle's cardio blast - so much fun! 45 minutes of non-stop cardio and then a 5 minute stretch. Nice! At lunch, I worked with the trainer at the rec on a new machine weight regimen. Fun. At least it was different.
Wednesday: McLean's HIIT - Bodyweight Circuits
This is always a tough one. I forced myself to do the floowork - though not burpees - despite my lack of enthusiasm. I did the plank to frog which is never fun. Ugh. I had every intention of walking at work until a line of showers came through. My umbrella stood no chance of keeping me dry on the trek to and from the rec, so I stayed put.
Thursday: Jari Love's Get Extremely Ripped! 1000 Hardcore + walk
It was time for the second workout on Jari's Hardcore video. The first segment after the warm-up is a squat to a lunge with biceps....oh, boy. My heart beat revved up and stayed up for the entire workout. After this ended (about 30 minutes), I did my own cardio with some weights. It was a killer workout! I got to the rec today to walk at lunch. Yay! I even did some ab-work afterward.
Friday: BodyFit 360: Dance Conditioning
My light morning - finally! It's been such a long week and this morning's workout was perfect - light cardio and then a long stretch. Lovely! The dance in this is fun and I always look forward to it!
Saturday: Peak 10 Cardio Strength Remix + McLean's Cardio Hip Hop
Time for some serious work this morning. I started with Michelle's CS - this one is so tough. Every circuit goes to the floor, except the last one. I was dripping sweat throughout - which is annoying. Ha! Then, I wanted some more cardio so I turned to McLean's fun dance workout - nothing too tough after all that jumping in the CS video. I took 10 minutes to stretch and do sit-ups, so 1 hour and 25 minutes. Wow.
Sunday: Dozois' Cardio Interval Burn on Glo + Amy's Plank Work
I always think this CIB is easier - and it's not. The ascents seem just as tough as the climbs, for some reason. Ack! I got through it, but it wasn't easy. I then did a stretch and wanted to do some core work - Amy's level 2 workout looked good. And it was - though a bit easier than I anticipated….which is a good thing, I guess.
