Today, Thursday, is my first check-in of the week, even though I have been working out. I have been in kind of a funk the last couple of days and didn’t want to check in because I missed working out on Monday. I should learn never to start a week by missing a workout; it’s not good for my state of mind. I haven’t missed a workout since, though, and I’m feeling a wee bit sore after yesterday’s cardio hit! Those roundhouse kicks are kicking my glute muscles–especially the ones that are sort of on the side of my hips. Today was Upper Body Strength. I started with 15 lb. weights, and was able to use them until we got to the bicep curls and other arm exercises. I tried dropping down to 10 lb., but even those were too heavy; so I ended up with my 8 lb. weights, which enabled me to finish the reps with good form. For the lightest weights, I used my 4 lb. dumbbells–even for the shoulder work. That’s a step up for me because I used to use my 3 lb. weights, and sometimes struggled even with those. So, I’m definitely seeing progress.
Day 49 Sunday (yesterday) I tried to post but it didn’t go through. I did the recommended Total Body Training (from day 48) and partnered that with Jessica’s new youtube Lower Body routine for strong glutes and back. It is definitely a good one. I enjoyed it a lot and like it because it is body weight only which is good for travelling.
This week I have managed (because of my job ) to get in my step count or above it each day. I have only done 3 routines this week 2 from you tube and one from this weeks rotation. Yesterday I did tone and flow before work . It always amazes me how sneaky that one is. I’m happy to say I used a mix of 8# & 10#weights with 15# for overhead tricep press. I thought I’d have to lower down to 5# as I hadn’t done a strength routine since last week and since I haven’t been as active as I’m used to ,it was a nice surprise. This evening I’m hoping to do fusion band routine and some yoga. I’m going to start with week 7 again next week since I only did one routine from it this week .
Day 48 and as we were out early today there was no early morning workout as my priority was to give Monty a long walk. We hit the trails at 6.30am this morning and it was wonderful. It gave my mum time to get ready as she had to return her heart monitor this morning. We went to Liverpool again and had lunch and took in another live Matinee show. It has been a good day. Today has been my active “rest” day and I am looking forward to working out with Jessica tomorrow. She has posted a new Lower Body workout which I am looking forward to trying.
