This Challenge is flying by. That's a good thing since it may stagnate next week when I have to add an additional Cardio Strength workout into the mix.
But as it is, I'm having fun!
Monday: PeakFit Pure Cardio
I had a rough night of sleep....but was still motivated to work hard this morning. After the warm-up and first circuit of PC, I fast forwarded to the last circuit and those lunge jumps I loathe. It felt good to get through that circuit and then go back to the easier ones. Yay! It's the little victories. Like lunge jumps.
Tuesday: Dozois' Total Body Cardio and Strength + weights
My workout schedule will be a bit different this week so I went ahead and did weights today. Michelle's workout is so good. As usual, I kept it low-impact to give my knees - and body - a break. But I was still sweating like crazy. And speaking of sweating..... I did weights at the rec at lunch.....and they apparently don't turn the A/C up very high in that building. It's usually bad but today it was terrible. Ugh! Too much sweat!
Wednesday: PeakFit Anytime Anywhere + walk
Oy. Wednesday mornings are not my friend. The best thing about this workout: it didn't kill me! Yay! I can never believe how much it makes me work. Wow. At lunch, I went to the rec center to walk the track. I was feeling a bit gross - like a cold was coming on, again - but I went anyway. When I got back to my office, I felt really shaky. WTH?! I didn't run a marathon! Thankfully, food helped and I felt better.
Thursday: Ilyse's Groovy Dance Party + Amy's Sports Sculpt + walk
I needed some fun this morning and Ilyse's Dance Party provided it! This workout always makes me happy - I move and jump and punch and party. Ha! After that, I tuned into Amy's workout, which I didn't remember very well....and it was fun, too! When it all ended, I felt good! At lunch, I was good - yay! - and walked at the rec again. No shakiness today. I got a good walk in along with sit-ups and ab work.
Friday: PeakFit Cardio Strength 2
There will be no Sunday workout this week so that means a CS today. It wasn't as difficult doing this at 5:30am as I remembered……but I couldn't get through it all. It was a great workout, though - and very challenging. This CS is really good and I look forward to it during every Peak 10 Challenge.
Saturday: Peak 10 More Cardio Interval Burn + Scott's Sports-Inspried Drills + Amy's Kickbox Power
Today is my marathon workout day…..since I won't work out tomorrow, I wanted to hit it super hard today. I started right after waking up with this CIB - always a great one to do. And not easy! But I got through it and, thankfully, had some energy left. So, I did Scott's Drills - not exactly my favorite of Scott's but tolerable. Next up, Amy's level 3 kickboxing workout. This one is definitely tougher than her level 2 workouts so it was nice this morning. That equaled 100 minutes of cardio! Whew! After a stretch and sit-ups, I was done.

I actually felt skinnier and my measurements had gone down a bit on Thursday night….. And then I blew it. Mr. Higgins is to blame. But I'm realizing, slowly and surely, that my thyroid - or lack thereof - means my metabolism is no more.
