Wow, another month of Glo to go!
With all my horrible summer eating, I need to work out like crazy. Here we go!
Monday: Amy's Cardio Intervals + Kickboxing Skills and Drills + walk
There need to be a lot of cardio this week. Today, Amy's Intervals - always fun and challenging. Doing one high impact move for 90 seconds is never easy! Then, Amy's kickboxing - so very different from Combat but very fun! At lunch, I walked at the rec center - and then did some serious ab work.
Tuesday: Petra's Circuit-Style + weights
Normally, Petra's easy weights/cardio workout would have annoyed me. I didn't feel challenged or productive. But I think I really needed a lighter morning...and her workout was light. Almost all the cardio was low-impact and I kept it that way. I even used lighter weights so my weights at work would be more effective - and they were! So it turned out to be a productive day, after all!
Wednesday: Ilyse's Work Hard, Have a Great Time + McLean's Kickbox Your Way to Fit
No, I did not have a "great time" with Ilyse but parts of this workout were fun. It's definitely not my favorite since it's geared more toward athletic cardio (i.e. non-stop jumping and hopping) but at least it was effective. After that, I tuned into McLean's kickboxing workout. I always forget about the lunge jumps that happen at the beginning of the workout. Ouch!
Thursday: Scott's Boot Camp Burn
This was my second time through this workout and I didn't really remember it from the first time. Alternating between cardio and weights, it's good without being too intense, though it's a level 3. Jeffrey uses a ball for some exercises so I subbed a lighter weight. Just like Denise Klatte, Scott seems to follow the same formula for the majority of his workouts. At least he's predictable!
Friday: Ilyse's Full-On Cardio Blast + Amy's Wonderful Cardio Blast
Family obligations mean I won't be able to work out tomorrow so my Saturday workout had to happen today. I needed serious cardio and Ilyse delivered. So much jumping! Whew! After that one, I tuned into Amy's workout...but I didn't follow it too closely since she uses a ball in this one. I did the high-impact moves and then tried to keep my heart rate up as Amy did ball stuff. Ha!
Sunday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn - Fat Blaster
I wanted to really work today so a Peak 10 workout fit the bill. I really do love this CIB - there are a few circuits that are just plain fun. And then some are very challenging, so it's a good mix. I did a total of 60 minutes of cardio. Then, five minutes of work with the 12-pound weights, a good stretch, and sit-ups. So, about 75 minutes of work today. Cool!
My eating has not been great. I'm only getting about two or three days of healthy eating in - below 1200 calories. But it's the summer and I'll have to buckle down again all too soon.
