Week one was successful, I think. I lost 1.2 pounds, which really could have been water weight only, but I'm choosing to see it as a good sign! Now, I need that success to continue this week!
Monday: Pure Cardio + walk
It's always easier working out on Monday mornings when I have Michelle's enthusiasm to look forward to. Pure Cardio is so much fun! I love the "climbs" - such innovative cardio that is non-stop but fun! At lunch, I walked outside because the weather was just lovely. I did the 1.2 route around campus and then added on a bit - for 25 minutes of "work."
Tuesday: Dozois' Total Body Cardio and Strength + walk
I always look forward to these Click and Glo workouts by Michelle. They're so much fun - and effective! This one definitely has some challenging bits - up and down planks, burpees, etc... But I still like it! And I love doing weights at home! At lunch, I walked at the rec because it was super humid outside. But I didn't mind: my stretch afterward was lovely!
Wednesday: Peak Fit Anytime Anywhere No Excuse Workout
Oh, wonderful, my dreaded friend, AA. I hate this workout. I love Michelle and almost anything she does - except this. I managed to get through it, my first time through in 6 months...but I changed a few of the peaks. Burpees were just not going to work this morning. It's always a good feeling to finish this one - because then it's done for the week.
Thursday: Ilyse's Sweaty, Sassy and Strong + Amy's Kickboxing Skills and Drills + weights
This workout from Ilyse was brand new - and a lot of fun. It's not too tough and doesn't build upon itself, which I always prefer. Next up: kickboxing with Amy. This one is good, though not my favorite. But these two made for a fun "light" morning of cardio. At lunch, I hiked to the rec and did weights. It was as muggy inside as outside - so very unpleasant. Ugh.
Friday: Peak Fit Dynamic Flexibility + Dozois' Tight and Toned Core
Friday couldn't come soon enough this week; it was a rough one. And this workout was just what I needed - no stress at all, just stretching. I love it! It lasted 35 minutes, after which I tuned into Dozois' core workout on Glo. Dang, it's tough!
Saturday: Peak 10 More Cardio Interval Burn
I love this workout! It may actually be my favorite CIB…..maybe! It was my first CIB ever so it holds a special place in my heart. It's fun and challenging - definitely - with no dread factor. The peaks are tough and I guess I do dread them always - but this is just such a great workout. Afterward, I did a lovely stretch and sit-ups.
Sunday: Peak 10 Cardio Strength - Fat Blaster + McLean's Cardio Hip Hop
It's been so long since I last did this CS…I didn't know if I should dread it or not. Ha! It's fun but there are some parts that are very difficult for me. Namely, some of the floor work. I got through it but I was achy by the end. I did about 15 minutes of McLean's dance workout to cool down and get additional steps. Then, a stretch.

It was a good week - food-wise, anyways. It was worth being bad on Friday and Saturday!
