After a great weekend of workouts, I'm feeling good. I'll feel even better when I see results on the scale!
So, here we go - almost halfway through this Challenge!
Monday: Sh'Bam #16 + Ilyse's Dance Intervals 101
Time for some dance today! This Sh'Bam wasn't my favorite but it was still fun. And I really tried to not jump too, too much. Then, I ruined it by jumping in Ilyse's workout. Oh, well. It was a fun morning! I took a 15 minute walk at lunch, just to clear my head.
Tuesday: Amy's Head to Toe Body Sculpt + walk
Amy's workout was new to me - and it was really good! There was enough cardio and compound exercises to keep my heart pounding throughout! I didn't love the cardio but at least it was different! As were some of the weighted exercises. So, a good workout! At lunch, I walked at the rec, very briskly. And stretched a bit.
Wednesday: Grit #7 + Scott's HIIT - Sports Inspired Intervals
I used to like Wednesdays....until it became my hardest weekday workout day. Ha! This Grit was a challenge - lots of up and down. Somehow I made it through. After that minor miracle, I did Scott's HIIT, which is always fun. At lunch, I walked down to a cafe to meet a friend. So, about 20 minutes of walking.
Thursday: BodyCombat #61 + walk
I'm not sure I like doing weights on Tuesday and Combat on Thursday. It's good in theory but by Thursday, I'm worn out. This Combat was tough and considering how tired I was, I had to really work just to get through it. It's also a longer one - lasting about 35 minutes. So I did my own cardio afterward to get to 45-50 minutes. I went for a walk once home - it was such a glorious day outside! I think the vitamin D did me good!
Friday: Bob Harper's Yoga for the Warrior
Even though cardio always calls to me, I knew I needed to take a serious break today. Bob Harper's yoga video - which I still haven't reviewed - looked inviting. And it's really good - and a challenge. He did so many forward folds and my hamstrings were in heaven! It was just what I needed. It was a great workout this morning!
Saturday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn Remix + Amy's All Around Energy
It's been over a month since my last Peak 10 workout and I couldn't stand it any longer. There is no better way for me to get a workout and have fun at the same time. So I took a break from Combat 60 to do this. Afterward, I did 20 minutes of Amy's strength and cardio. Wow! I really like this workout but frequently forget about it! Fifteen minutes of a stretch and abs and then I was done! Whew!
Sunday: Peak 10 Cardio Strength Remix + McLean's Cardio Hip Hop
I can't say I was looking forward to Cardio Strength as much as yesterday's CIB….but I was still energized to do it. And…..then it started. Holy crap! I forget that this one is super tough!! You go to the floor in every circuit but the last. I used my eight-pound weights throughout so I can build strength to eventually use my new twelve pounders and dang! It challenged me. That lasted for 50 minutes and then I did 20 minutes of McLean's fun dance routine. Love that one! Arms for a bit and then a nice stretch!

Friday - 1251

I weighed this week and the number is going down - but very slowly. I had fun celebrating my mom's birthday on Saturday. That was my cheat day, for sure!
