My last week of Cathe! And not even a full week: we leave on Saturday morning for our cruise!! Eek!
It's been a fun eight weeks with Cathe. I've really gotten to know her style better - and seen the benefits of that style. Look for a review soon.
Monday: Cathe's Gloved Up and Ready + YWA
Ugh, Mondays are always hard - and even harder when you don't sleep well. And I didn't. But today was kickboxing and that made me happy. This workout contained some fun punching combos and plenty of cardio intervals to keep my heart pounding. My one complaint: this workout, like some of Cathe's other kickboxing workouts, had no kicks. None. I like kicks; I want to kick! After work, I did a nice YWA from Yoga Revolution.
Tuesday: The Gymbox's Extreme Cardio + weights + YWA
This morning, it was time for mega cardio with Ashli. She always works you hard and this workout was no exception. You jump so much in her workouts! I skipped some of the mid-workout ab work and did cardio instead - I don't like integrated ab work. But other than that, it was good! At lunch, I did weights at the rec center. So glad to have that over with - again! After work, I did this 33-minute YWA for relaxation and it was so lovely! I love stretchy yoga!
Wednesday: The Gymbox's Extreme Cardio + Tracey Mallett's Core Conditioning + YWA
I needed low impact this morning so I combined two of Dana's low-impact circuit workouts to get a full 45 minutes in this morning. And though these were low-impact, I worked hard - lots of squats and lunges. Dana does not disappoint! At lunch, I walked outside for 20 minutes - though not too fast as I was trying to not go too hard. And at the end of the day, I did Adriene's Freedom Flow, which was much more intense than I remembered. I got all hot and sweaty! And following that up with Mallett's core workout did not help the sweat factor!
Thursday: Cathe's Metabolic Mashup
So this morning, I decided to do all weights. I haven't done a pure strength video in some time so I thought I was due. Cathe's Mashup was tough! I used only my 8-pound weights and could barely finish some exercises, there were so many reps! My arms ached on my drive into work....so at least I know they were working hard! At lunch, I walked outside again - but nothing too fast or crazy. After-work commitments meant no YWA.
Friday: Cathe's 80s Style Cardio with Low Impact Blasts Live + walk
This was my second time doing this Cathe Live workout and I liked it a lot more this time around. It seemed easier than before so maybe my fitness level has improved. Or maybe I was just happy to have something different for a change, rather than Cathe's normal circuits. Anyway, it made for a good morning. At lunch, I walked around outside - getting some good exercise. And that was good because my diet was blown today because of work!
Saturday - Sunday: vacation
