Day one of my adventure at Tiger Muay Thai began today. I rested at the weekend as I wasn’t very well (not flu) and I have disciplined myself to my original choice of classes today so that I dont over train. I started at 6.30am with the amazing morning yoga. It is such a lovely start to the day and so feel good and relaxing.
There was time for some R&R before the 8.30am CrossFit Class. It was Upper Focus and using proper barbells rather than hand weights as well as throwing medicine balls with a partner (which I loved). I have never done anything using barbells and as my upper body strength is my weakest area I just used the pole to learn good form (the pole is 8 kilos). I kind of enjoyed it but was a little stressed because everyone else seemed to know what they were doing and had weights added. I had fun once I relaxed and realised that it is not The Olympics and I was right to focus on form.
Then more rest at our villa and lunch followed by a 1.00pm Strength and Conditioning class where the focus was deadlifts and lower body. Now that I really enjoyed because I felt confident enough to add two 5 kilo barbells to my pole.Nothing compared to everybody else but it was good for me. I know for next week I might be able to lift a bit more as my lower body is relatively strong. Now it is complete rest and a swim in the pool and a light dinner before night yoga tonight. No Muay Thai for me today… the above is enough 😀💪💪💪
Now all that is progress year on year. I feel so good… yet, I know it is going to be my upper body that I feel tomorrow even though I used very little weight. I know I didn’t use enough for my lower body but, again focus on correct form but I had an absolute blast. I really did.
Saturday morning and I got an extra special extra long sleep in this morning. Wonderful after a very busy week and a really early start yesterday. It felt so good. My husband told me that our cat was asleep on the mat outside our bedroom as she was waiting for me and wondering where I was. Isn’t that sweet? She usually ignores me….
There wasn’t an early morning workout today but before lunch I did Two in One Toning from YouTube. Thanks for the recommendation mholdsworth and Jacy. I did this years ago but enjoyed rediscovering it today. I used 12llb as my heavy set and 3kilos as my lights. It had exactly the right kind of challenge. I loved it and Peanut was adorable. I loved her version of a push up whilst Jessica was demonstrating on the wall.
I followed this with SOS. I need to try and fit more flexibility work into my week and my fitness schedule and this one only being 15 minutes long is a great add on. This new challenge is going to be great for me as it is exactly what I need.
Got my leaves taken care of and some of my housework but we got ice yesterday and then it snowed so many more leaves are down…..so there will be more yardwork. Very late this year. We have 2 acres which is really big because we live in town so our tractor is really a large garden tractor not like something you farm with, although we have one of those too to take care of the six acres we own out in the country 🙂
Think I am going to have to go back to the morning workouts thought maybe I could do my 10 minutes DVD from Jessica three times a day but that isn’t working either.
Hope everyone is well and so great to have a couple more ladies to have virtual coffee with 🙂
This week has been a dosey, still working and getting in my average high step count . I haven’t gotten in anything extra. My son is really struggling , he was back in the hospital last night . We are trying very hard to find a TBI residential treatment facility for him. There are few in the US and hard to get into. Today Friday I have the morning off from work . Went looking for tabata routines that Jacy mentioned. Awesome abs and arms came up as a option. This is one I love and has forgotten about ( seem like I say that a lot about Jessica’s you tube rouintes, I love them all) .I going to do this that one and then it’s off to work . Hope everyone has a great weekend. Going to attempt a 8k- trail race tomorrow morning , I think …. ? I haven’t trained very well this week. I will see how I feel in the morning.
Hi I’m a little nervous to ask, but would you mind if I joined your group walking along the yellow brick road? I’ve read some of your previous posts, and the weights that you lift and your daily step count is inspirational. I think it would be amazing to make online friends from around the world who workout with Jessica Smith.
I’m in my late forties living in the UK and discovered Jessica Smith just under a year ago. I love her for all the reasons that you do. I have purchased lots of her DVDs yoga, walk on 30dys, 5 miles, 6 miles, 4 dvd weight loss and walk strong 1, following rotations each day and now I’m discovering her on You Tube.
This morning I’ve completed 2 in 1 Toning and Tabata. Something I’ve only tried this year with Jessica is lifting two sets of weights. So my light are 2kg and my heavy 3kg (and 3 kg has been a challenge for me – I know I’m a lightweight!!)
Have a great weekend!
