Week seven, here we go!
I'm feeling better about my weight, though I haven't weighed. But you know how it is - you feel right. And, when jumping around during workouts, your belly doesn't jiggle anymore. Ha!
Monday: Jari's Get Extremely Ripped! 1000 Hardcore + short walk + YWA
My weight schedule is messed up this week, so weights on Monday and Wednesday. Jari's workout is definitely tough - the weights and the cardio seem never-ending when you're in the middle of them. But I got through it. At lunch, I took a 15-minute walk outside, needing to get away from the office. In the evening, I did this 19-minute YWA, all about the revolved side angle pose. Dang, my legs were burning!
Tuesday: Les Mills' Combat #61 + BodyAttack #92 + walk
Valentine's Day and nothing was going right, straight out of bed. But I got into this Combat and it was good! And challenging! Lots of lunges. Dang! After that finished, I tuned into a bit of BodyAttack. The instructors in these seem to move so fast that I feel like I can't keep up. So it's a great workout! At lunch, I walked at the rec center and did some ab work. I love productive lunches!
Wednesday: Les Mills' Sh'Bam #16 and 14 + walk + Les Mills' BodyFlow #70
I wasn't feeling great this morning...so it was a good thing that Sh'Bam was on the agenda. It's so much fun! I vaguely remembered some of these routines from last time so that was good. At lunch, I walked outside for about 20 minutes. I'd meant to do weights, but wasn't feeling up to it (which is saying something, for me). In the evening, I decided to do a bit of Flow, instead of YWA, since my Les Mills subscription will soon run out.
Thursday: Les Mills' Grit #14 + Trainer Pass cardio + walk
As usual, I was dreading this Grit...but it wasn't too bad, all things considered. I skipped most of the floor work in favor of additional standing cardio. After that finished up, I tuned into Trainer Pass for some additional cardio to finish off my morning. It was alright. I'm still on the fence with that website. At lunch, I walked outside for 25 minutes. A lovely day!
Friday: Les Mills' BodyFlow #71 + weights + YWA
Today was a good day. Friday! I did 40ish minutes of Flow - which was nicely 55 minutes long. It stared with Tai Chi, which was different - but good! At lunch, I got to the rec center to do weights. I hate weights. But at least it got done for the week. Then, after work and a medical test, I did 30 minutes of Adriene's gentle yoga. It was nice but I was feeling it in my arms after weights.
Saturday: Les Mills' Combat #66 + BodyAttack #91 + YWA
At this point in an 8-week Challenge, workouts start to get a bit boring - such as Combat 60 and Combat 60 Live. So for the next two weeks, I'll do a 55-minute streaming Combat instead. Today it was #66 - and it was good. Very fun and not easy. Ha! After that 50 minutes (of cardio), I tuned into an Attack, which is guaranteed to spike my heart rate. Whew! I did #91 for 25 minutes and could hardly stand by the end. I stretched and did a short YWA.
Sunday: The Gymbox Extreme Cardio + Legs and Shoulders + weights + YWA
I needed something different today. One of my ankles was hurting a bit so I didn't want to go too hard for too long. I decided to try one of Kaycee's cardio workouts on The Gymbox. It ran for 45 minutes and spiked my heart rate with some new and different - and not crazy - moves. It was good! After that, I did a 25 minute weight class with Dana, focusing on legs and shoulders. Holy cow, my legs were aching! Then, some stretching and some work with the 12-pound weights. And, finally, a short YWA.
Monday - 1172
Tuesday - bad
Wednesday - 1218
Thursday - bad
Friday - 1162
Saturday - 1668
Sunday - 1260
Ugh. Not a great week. Valentine's Day led to too many calories....and eating out with a friend on Thursday meant even more unexpected calories. I have to do better.
