Another week of summer here in Texas...and my second week of Peak 10!
I'm totally excited about this Challenge. I want to get into great shape for our October vacation - for my 35th birthday!!
Monday: PeakFit Pure Cardio
I was definitely tired this morning but Michelle got me going with Pure Cardio. This one is so much fun. I debated doing the last circuit since I never make it that far along in the video due to morning time constraints....but then decided to do it next time. Lunge jumps did not sound fun after a weekend of Peak workouts. Whew!
Tuesday: McLean's Unleash Your Inner Strength + Amy's Skills and Drills + weights
Today was cardio - but a bit lighter cardio, thank goodness! I started with McLean's workout....but I opted out of the floorwork, jumping rope or jogging instead. After that, I tuned into Amy's kickboxing workout. This is a fun one! At lunch, I got to the rec for weights! Yay! They were not easy but I was so glad to get them done!
So I was up, literally, all night long with severe stomach issues. Somehow, I got out of bed and went to work....but there was no working out. It makes me sad - that means no "light" day for yoga or something. Sigh. Stupid stomach.
Thursday: PeakFit Anytime Anywhere + walk
Since I missed Wednesday, I had to get up and do my hard workout today. My stomach was still a little apprehensive about being sloshed around, but I got through it! And my stomach was much better today! (I changed one "peak" move because it was too jumpy.) At lunch, I had to escape the office so I walked the track at the rec center.
Friday: Amy's Complete Strength and Conditioning + walk
Time for weights today! I'm mixing up Michelle's weighted mid-week workouts with a few of Amy's, just so I don't get bored. And I really like this one! Michelle's are definitely more challenging….but Amy made me do 50 push-ups. Whew! At lunch, I walked at the rec center. And I was proud of myself for getting over there!
Saturday: Peak 10 More Cardio Interval Burn + Ilyse's Heart-Pumping Groove
This was my first ever Peak 10 CIB so it holds a special place in my heart. And I still love it! It's super tough but also a lot of fun! I got through it all today - with a lot of sweat. Yay! Then, 10 minutes of Ilyse's cardio to cool down. Wanting a good stretch, I did five minutes of abs and then about 10 minutes of good stretching. It was lovely!
Sunday: Peak 10 Cardio Strength - Fat Blaster + Scott's Intense Athletic Drills
So I started this CS and was having fun. The choreography is cool and the weighted sequences flow nicely. Then the last two circuits happened and I almost died - from all the floor work. Whew! Somehow I managed to do 25 minutes of Scott's video - after having already done 50 minutes with the CS. Then, five minutes with the 12lbs weights followed by a stretch and ab work.
Monday - 1213
Tuesday - 1256
Wednesday - BAD
Thursday - 1229
Friday - 1229
Saturday - BAD
Sunday - a bit bad
The holiday weekend was not kind to me. I was good four of the five weekdays but I made a special end-of-the-summer dessert for Mr. Higgins. That meant my calorie counts stayed above 1200. Ugh. Must do better!
