After going out of town and eating horribly, I need to get back on track this week. There will be goodies in the office but I need to be good whenever possible.
That means working out hard!
Tuesday: Amy's Metabolic Meltdown + Scott's Multi-Level Cardio Drills + walk
I wanted a slow progression of intensity this morning so this was a good combination. I did all of Amy's workout which is a level 2. Whenever possible, I upped the intensity without overdoing it. Then, I switched over to Scott's Drills and managed some lunge jumps before it was done. Yay! At lunch, I walked at the rec center with a co-worker. After that bout of cardio, I did some sit-ups.
Wednesday: Amy's Intervals + Dozois' HIIT - Breathless and Energized
Today, I needed to step it up a notch. So, I started with Amy's workout - which is not at all easy. Eight 20-second intervals with 10 seconds of rest in between. Whew! Then, Michelle's HIIT which is extremely hard after another HIIT routine. Dang! I definitely felt like I got a great workout this morning. And a good thing since it was my only workout today.
Thursday: Cathe's Intensity + walk
Cardio, cardio, cardio. That's my mantra this week. Cathe's workout is so good if you want to move and keep on moving! I did the step routine and then the Lo-HIIT, which I made as high-impact as possible. My head was pounding this morning so this was tough to get through - but I did it! At lunch, I walked at the rec center again - and again with a co-worker, which makes the time pass so quickly! Awesome!
Friday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn Remix
I knew this CIB would not get done tomorrow so I did most of it today. And it is tough at 5:30am. Whew! I was able to get through most of it - peaks and all - before I had to quit, 15 minutes before it was over. But it's such a good workout! I love this one!
Cookie baking day with my mom.
Sunday: Peak 10 More Cardio Strength
I got home at 9:30 from my parents' house and worked out shortly thereafter. This CS is so hard...it's a struggle to get through. And I had to modify bits of the last circuit... My energy was lagging and I felt gross. But I got through it. I then did the last 15 minutes of CIB Remix from Friday....and then 10 more additional minutes of cardio, for a total of 75 minutes. I was exhausted. I managed 5 minutes with the 12-pound weights and then ab work.....and then a stretch. Sigh.
Bad. I had a few good days but all the holiday treats are just too tempting.
