For the first time in our courtship and marriage, we're home for Christmas after always going to Nashville. It's good and it's bad but two good things is that I have more control over my eating and I can work out.
Despite eating too much, I was determined to keep up my workouts this week... Being off work made it easier.
Monday: Dozois' Rockin Body Cardio
I did my traditional post-vacation workout, Dozois' old dance video, the day after Christmas. Thankfully, I only missed one workout - Christmas Day - so I didn't feel too sluggish. But I was tired and this one was a bit more difficult to get through. It's a fun one, though, and that made it worth it. So, 45 minutes of cardio and then a stretch and crunches.
Tuesday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn Remix
Today, I had to jump out of bed and workout, much like a work day. Thankfully, I got up at 6:45 instead of my usual 5:30. This workout is a lot of fun but my feet were really hurting, I think from being on my feet in the kitchen so much the previous two days. Stupid plantar fasciitis. Ugh! I dug out my new sneakers and they helped a bit. So I was able to get through this workout and then added on 5 more minutes of my cardio to get a full hour in. I then stretched and planked.
Wednesday: Peak 10 Cardio Strength Remix + Ilyse's Groovy Dance Party
It had been so long since I'd last done this CS Remix that I had no idea what I was getting in to. And it was tough! Every circuit, except the last, went to the floor. Dang! I definitely got a good workout! After that 50 minutes, I tuned into Ilyse's dance workout. I love this one! And it goes by so fast - 20 minutes! After that, I stretched and did some ab work.
Thursday: Amy's Metabolic Meltdown + Total Package
I need something a bit lighter today so I did Amy's level 2 Meltdown - which is still a great workout. I did almost everything high impact - but didn't jump too high. Ha! After that, I tuned into her Total Package workout - a great body strength and cardio workout. Love it! And all the floor work really works you hard. So, 70 minutes for all that, then a nice stretch and ab work.
Friday: Cathe's Intensity + weights
Cardio time! Cathy's Intensity is such a great workout, even without the step. It's fun cardio and then Hi and Lo HIIT. Dang, what a workout. My legs were aching from Amy's endless squats yesterday so this was a bit painful....but good! After that hour of cardio, I did 10 minutes of weights. Then, finally, a stretch and abs.
Saturday: Dozois' Cardio Interval Burn on Glo
I had to get up early today in order to work out so it was a bit rough getting going. But I did and this workout was definitely not the easiest. I worked hard and it felt good.... Just thinking about all the food I'd eat over the weekend made me work hard. Ha! After I got done, I did a quick stretch and was done!
