After eating horribly last weekend, I'm motivated to work hard.
Monday: Denise's Interval Sweat + Dozois' Work It
Thanks to the time change, I felt almost rested this morning, despite sleeping horribly all weekend. I wasn't looking forward to Denise's workout because I remembered not liking it during the last Challenge. But it was straightforward enough to be a blessing this morning- and I enjoyed it. After that, I tuned into Dozois' light workout, which I tried to make harder by increasing what I could to high-impact moves.
Tuesday: Petra's High Intensity Drills + Amy's Metabolic Meltdown + weights
I can't really say I was looking forward to Petra's workout, but at least I knew what I was getting into, since I did this one last week. Ugh. After that fun, I tuned into Amy's workout which has both high and low impact circuits. I made them high when I could, wanting the added benefit. At lunch, I did weights at the rec center.....and had to walk in the rain to do so. So, yay!
Wednesday: Dozois' Conditioning for Long Lean Muscles
This workout is a lot of fun - basically another BodyFit 360. Since I wasn't feeling great today, I did my Friday workout on Wednesday! And I only did about 35 minutes of it. But I love this one!
Thursday: Scott's Boot Camp Burn + walk
Weights today! I couldn't really remember Scott's Boot Camp but it was good. I kept the cardio drills low impact to have a lighter day....but I still got a great workout. Scott isn't my favorite but I like his no fuss attitude. At lunch, I walked the block around campus, which takes about 20-25 minutes. And it was so nice outside!
Friday: Shape's Bikini Body Camp Transforming + Dozois' Calorie Burning Cardio Blast + Ilyse's Sweaty and Sassy Dance Fit + Amy's Core Power
Today was a good workout day! I started it off with Michelle's cardio on the Bikini video - so good!! Then, I did her HIIT on Glo, which is really, really good and effective when time is an issue. In the evening, I tuned into Ilyse's fun dance workout for some low-impact work since I couldn't walk at the rec today. I don't like this dance as much as some of the others but it was different. And to end the day - Amy's core workout. Ouch!
Saturday: Cardio Interval Burn on Glo + Amy's All Around Energy
I was ready to work this morning and this CIB was good! And tough! I always think that it's not too tough...and then it sneaks up on me. Whew! It felt good to work hard, though. After that 55 minutes, I tuned into Amy's toning/cardio workout, which I really, really like. After 20 minutes of that, I was done. Then, after sit-ups, I stretched. Lovely!
Sunday: Peak 10 More Cardio Strength + McLean's Cardio Hip Hop
This CS is never one I look forward to. I have no idea why, but it's just so tough. Maybe it's because you go to the floor in every circuit except one. Sigh. Thankfully, I didn't mind the hard work today but it was not easy. After that, I did 15 minutes of McLean's fun dance workout. Then, five minutes with the 12-pound weights followed by a stretch and ab work. A good day!
I had three good days this week but then I had an all-day conference...and the weekend.... Sigh. It's frustrating. However, I was able to get into a pair of my skinny jeans this week...and a blazer that was too tight a year ago. That makes me extremely happy!
