Almost halfway through this Challenge! And six weeks until our vacation in the U.S.V.I. Wow!! That means it's time to buckle down and eat crazy healthy!!
Monday: Ilyse's Dance Intervals 101 + Heart-Pumping Groove
I'm so glad Ilyse was on my schedule this morning since I hardly slept at all last night. I was exhausted. But Ilyse got me moving very quickly with her intervals - so much jumping and running right away! Whew! I did all of that workout and then switched over to her Groove, which is much less intense. I still tried to jump and jog to keep my heart rate up. At lunch, I stayed in since I was so tired.
Tuesday: PeakFit Pure Cardio + weights
Back to Pure Cardio this week! I skipped to the end to get in all of the last circuit, which I usually have to cut short due to time. That last circuit is the one with lunge jumps. Oy. But I did them all and moved on. Yay! At lunch I did weights at the rec center. I still have no love of them but at least the weight room was relatively empty today.
Wednesday: PeakFit Anytime Anywhere
I was so tired this morning - thankfully from sleeping very deeply - that this workout seemed impossible when I started. But I persevered and got through it all! I can't say it was easy, at least mentally, but it felt great afterward! At lunch, I went to a talk about flexibility training - very interesting.
Thursday: Dozois' Total Body Cardio and Strength + Cardio Strength 1 on Glo
So this morning, I got up and did Michelle's weight workout and kept it low-impact - super low because...... I realized I need to start my additional CS this week since I'll be at a conference in a few weeks and may miss that one. Ugh. I hate adding in the additional CS workout. This is when I really start to feel this Challenge. I got through it, after work, but it wasn't easy. This CS was appealing because I did it over the weekend and hoped it would still be fresh in my mind. It mostly was.
Friday: Bob Harper's Yoga for the Warrior
I needed little to no movement today and yoga sounded good. Bob Harper's yoga is effective without being too intense. The link above is a clip since I still haven't reviewed it (sigh).
Saturday: PeakFit Cardio Strength 2 + Amy's Metabolic Meltdown
Tomorrow, my workout time will be limited so I need to hit it hard today. I started with Michelle's CS….which may be my favorite CS ever. Really, it's so well put together without having complex choreography. Just a good workout! After that, I did 25 minutes of Amy's cardio drills. Whew! Then, five minutes with the 12-pound dumbbells followed by abs and a nice stretch. What a day!
Sunday: Peak 10 More Cardio Interval Burn
I didn't have much time today so I had to work hard and work quickly. This CIB does the trick - making me feel like death after the first circuit. Ha! It's a fun one, though, and after the first two circuits, I really enjoy it. After that 55 minutes, I stretched, did some sit-ups, and called it a day.
