It's actually less than a week: we leave on Thursday night. Eek!
After eating healthy all weekend, I'm hungry. But I've got to keep this going for four more days...
Monday: The Gymbox Cardio Dance + YWA
Today I cannot tell you how sore I was - either from weights or kickboxing yesterday, I don't know. But I could barely lift my arms - or anything else. Ouch! So it was good that I'd planned to take it down a notch today, before my final three day push to the cruise. I did a dance workout with Jodi, who is a really good instructor, successfully breaking down complicated steps. My heart rate didn't get too high this morning but I had fun! In the evening, I wanted to work a bit harder with yoga so I did this "energizing" sequence - it got me sweating!
Tuesday: Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn - Fat Blaster + walk + YWA
Changing it up this morning! I wanted cardio so I turned to Michelle. I love this CIB! Since it was so early, I didn't know if I'd feel up to the peaks, but I did about 75% of them. Wow! Talk about a great workout! At lunch, I meant to do weights but I was still so sore from Sunday, that I walked instead. I felt like a disappointment - I'm weird that way - but at least I didn't hurt myself. After work, I decided to do a tougher YWA - and this one made me sweat! So many lunges - wow!
Wednesday: Cathe's Metabolic Circuit Blast + walk
For my weights today, I decided to do another streaming Cathe video. This one was a lot like the one I did last week. The cardio, though, was intense and I was sweating like crazy. I'm still not 100% sold on Cathe's style but maybe my Cathe Challenge in a few weeks will change that. One thing this workout showed me, though, was how tired I am. I'm just rundown. Sigh. I may have to take it easier than I'd planned tomorrow. At lunch, I walked ten minutes to and from a cafe to meet my old boss for lunch. A lovely 20 minutes outside!
Thursday: Cathe's Intensity
My last workout before the cruise! I needed to make the most of it, though I was really feeling rundown. Cathe's Intensity is not my favorite but I can do it in the mornings - it's not too bad, if I do the low-impact HIIT. And that's what I did this morning. It was a good workout, without being crazy.
And that's it! We're off.
For the first time ever, I'm thinking of workout out on a cruise - well, doing yoga. I've gained some fantastic flexibility - I'm so close to the splits! - and I don't want to lose it all. We'll see how it goes.
On Tuesday, I finished my 30-Day Squat Challenge. Yay! I can't say my bum feels any different but we'll see after I spend time in my bikinis next week. Ha!
