This week started out a bit rough, with some stomach issues. But I quickly got back into the swing of things. And considering my eating, I needed to be able to work hard.
Monday: Crunch's Fat Burning Pilates + Scott's Tone, Tighten and Firm
This morning, I wasn't feeling well. Later in the day, I did about 15 minutes of Ellen Barrett's Pilates video. I hadn't done this one in forever and it's so good! Then, I did Scott's weight workout - all 20 minutes. Dang, triceps! I used the 12-pound weights when I could and definitely felt it!
Tuesday: Dozois' 30 Minute Boot Camp + Ilyse's Heart-Pumping Groove
I was almost back to normal today but I wanted to take it a bit easier than usual. So, I did Michelle's level 2 boot camp - which is basically a bit slower than a level 3. It was still a good workout, though I skipped the burpees. Next up was Ilyse's fun dance workout. Mr. Higgins laughed at me as he ate his breakfast. I'm glad I can provide some comic relief at 6am.
Wednesday: Amy's Bootcamp Blast + Scott's HIIT - Sports Inspired Intervals + walk
My week is all screwed up as far as weights go - so I did them today with Amy's workout. I think I'd done this workout before but I can't remember.... It was good! After that, I did Scott's HIIT - always effective! At lunch, I walked at the rec center, unable to bring myself to do weights. Ugh.
Thursday: Scott's Multi-Level Cardio Drills + Amy's Intervals + walk
It was hard to get going this morning but Jeffrey Scott made me move - and very quickly! This was a good set of drills - much like his others. After that ended, I did 15 minutes of Amy's intervals - always super effective. At lunch, I walked at the rec center. It was a challenge to do that today because of meetings but I made myself!
Friday: Scott's Boot Camp Burn + Shape's Bikini Body Camp Transforming
This morning, I had a few extra minutes so I tried to put them to good use. I did about 35 minutes of Scott's cardio/weight drills in Burn. Then, all 20 minutes of Dozois' cardio in Bikini. It made for a very effective morning workout, all in all! Even though the Bikini cardio is a bit more basic than Dozois' later workouts, it's still tough! Hello lunge jumps in the last circuit!!
Saturday: Michelle's Cardio Interval Burn on Glo + Ilyse's Power Stretch
I pulled two hamstrings yesterday, somehow. I have no idea. But I hurt. I did 65 total minutes of cardio this morning - all of the CIB plus my own cardio to get a good, long workout. This CIB is definitely different from the others but very, very effective. Whew! Afterward, since I was so sore, I did Ilyse's 10-minute stretch, wanting to be forced to stretch well and long. Ab work finished off my morning.
Sunday: McLean's Tabata - Get Gloing with Tabata-Inspired Drills + Amy's Cardio Combo
Wow, so I finally found a workout of McLean's that I can tolerate. This one wasn't easy and I had to modify just a bit but it was doable and almost un-hateable. LOL! He alternates a weighted move and then a cardio move - each done 20 seconds. After that 45 minutes, I tuned into Amy's level two workout - also a nice combination of weights and cardio. That lasted 30 minutes. I then did five minutes of core work followed by a nice stretch. My hamstrings are still annoyed with me.
Bad. So, so bad.
