Well, if I thought I'd been eating bad before last week, I was dead wrong. Last week was the worst week yet. This week is going to be even more difficult since I'll be in New Orleans for a few days. Fun! But bad for the diet.
I'm taking my laptop to NOLA and will have time to workout so at least there's that. Sigh.
Monday: Amy's Skills and Drills + McLean's Unleash Your Inner Strength + walk
It's always good to take it down a notch on Mondays after Peak workouts over the weekend. This morning was a nice change as I hadn't done either of these workouts in a long while. Though they're both a level 2 (out of 3), I was sweating and working hard like normal. The moves weren't quite as tough, thank goodness. At lunch, I walked at the rec and then did ab work.
Tuesday: Jari Love's Get Extremely Ripped 1000
This was the only time this week I would do weights so Jari was a good choice. This workout (I did number one) has so much cardio along with the weights - it's tough! I always forget how much work weights are with Jari - she does so many reps! Ouch!
Wednesday: Dozois' Conditioning for Long Lean Muscles
I arrived in NOLA this morning and an early flight meant no morning workout. I had a very long day, running non-stop but then had a fun evening out with two colleagues. We explored and ate too much. Ha! At 9:30, upon arriving back at the hotel, I buckled down and did this workout. I was super happy the wifi worked. This was hard to get through but I was so proud of myself for having the discipline to get it done after such a long day.
Thursday: McLean's HIIT - Bodyweight Circuits + Amy's All Around Energy
After my workout the night before, this HIIT video did not sound appealing at 6am. I got through it, in the limited space in my hotel room. Once again, so proud of myself for getting it done! After that 35 minutes of work, I tuned into Amy's workout for an additional 25 minutes. Then, a nice stretch. Yay! I needed to burn mega calories for NOLA food!
Friday: Dozois' Rockin Body Cardio + Calorie Burning Cardio Blast
The hotel wifi was not cooperating this morning - at 6am again - so I was forced to turn to a workout on my laptop - Michelle's oldie. It was fun and a nice change from the harder workouts. That lasted 45 minutes and then I turned to her Glo Cardio Blast for 15 more minutes of cardio. A stretch was quite lovely after all that!
Saturday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn Remix + Ilyse's Rapid Fire Core
Since I had a morning flight home, I got up at 5:30…on a Saturday. I knew I had to work out as soon as possible or it wouldn't happen at all. Michelle's CIB Remix is one of my faves so that got me through. I then wanted ab work so I turned to Ilyse, who is just a meanie in regards to core work! Ha! Then, a stretch.
Sunday: Cathe's Cardio Core Circuit + Amy's Cardio Boxing
Back home - yay! I got through Cathe's grueling Circuit because I'm so afraid of how much weight I've gained. Though I should have done weights this morning I need cardio - and tons of it. After that 40 minute workout, I tuned into Amy's lighter workout - it was fun! I couldn't have done much more jumping around but I did jacks and jumping rope and added a bi more than Amy called for to burn more calories!
On top of all this, I walked so much in NOLA! Every night we walked around the French Quarter. It was fun! I liked the city but I'm not sure if or when I'd want to go back. The food and architecture were great but the heat, humidity, and smell was just a little too much. And this is coming from a Texan!
