Wendsday day 17- Befote work I did Tuesday’s routine- WS2 upper body. It was great . I had a very busy 3 house day – typical Wendsday. I came home to pull in my driveway to see my flowering crabapple tree cut to bits. My well meaning father thought he’d prune it for me so I wouldn’t have to . He found some rot then got carried away and left only the top 2 limbs. It looks so sad. I’m hoping in the spring it will get some new growth. Once inside my home I found my son was having a very bad day and was threatening to harm himself. I had planned on doing lower body after dinner . getting my son settled down I sat down and now I’m just exhausted.so no lower body for me . I have done over 20,000 steps . I am going to do flow 3 hips and knees .
Monday & Tuesday/Day 15&16- Monday – I took as my active rest day. With work I still got in over 18,000 steps. Tuesday- This morning I did a 20minute YouTube yoga routine called everything in 20( at least I think that’s what it was called ). I’ve done it before and lives up to its name. Today was May Day off from work. It was spent running errands with my mother Inlaw and son. Once home I felt wiped out so I rested a bit before my daughter got home from school. After dinner I did cardio party. I really needed to get my steps up , as always with that one I had great fun and I even did the shimmy. Sometimes I’m just not that coordinated. I will hoping to do Monday and Tuesdays routines.
Wednesday and Day 19. I am back on track with the days and did the suggested day 19 Routine Yoga Stretch and Strength. My goodness I had forgotten how challenging that could be. I was pleased with my balance and concentration today though. Before the yoga I warmed up (and got some steps in) by doing the Day 2 Steady State Cardio routine from Jessica’s Fall Back into Fitness.
Going to try and get some work done now as I have signed up for an easy to moderate hike/walk this afternoon. This one is mainly on paved trails from Hong Kong University to Aberdeen. After the typhoon most of the trails are blocked with trees. They are not the priority of the authorities as the urban areas and schools etc. need to be cleared. So every hike we post or sign up to could be an exciting adventure.
Tuesday and Day 18 (morning). I slept really well last night after two restless stormy nights. I am back on track with the Master Rotation doing both the suggested workouts as my early morning routine. I did the Total Body Abs Transformer with my 10llb weights and got a terrific sweaty workout. I really like this kind of cardio strength workout with strength circuits and cardio intervals. Jessica is amazingly strong. My goodness she does single armed burpees. I then did the Concentrated Abs Routine from the same DVD which was her second recommendation for today. My abs are always sore the day after doing this one as it is a tough (for me) abs routine and there is absolutely no rest. I definitely got a thorough whole body strength workout today.
It is a beautiful sunny morning and I am treating myself with a visit to the salon to get my nails, eyebrows etc. done. The remains of garden clean up can wait …. my marigolds need a break😀😀.
Going down to the ferry I shall still need to take care though as the paths are not fully clear of fallen trees yet. It will take a few days.
Days 16 and 17 (Sunday and Monday). A scary Sunday with Mangkut hitting us harder than expected. Maureen was correct we had no internet, TV or phone connection once the storm really hit us and we have just got it back. We are so surprised about getting it back so fast. We are safe and well. Thanks for your kind words, thoughts and prayers and I am positive they did the trick. There is damage to the outside of our property and the garden is devastated. We lost two trees. Luckily they didn’t fall towards the house.
Day 16 (yesterday) as my early morning workout as the T8 signal was raised I did Steady, Ready and then did Lower Focus. I hope you can imagine me working out in my living room among all of the pots, trees, plants that I could bring in from the garden. I did Cardio Party at about 4.00pm as the Super Typhoon was heading towards its peak. Maureen and mholdsworth youwere there with Jessica, Debbie, Beth and the rainbow of ladies from the community. It was a surreal experience but I was so pleased I had those downloads to workout to.
Day 17 (Today) and I began with Brain Fitness Fun and then did Upper Focus before venturing outside to begin the clean up. It is going to take a while and ours is nothing compared to others at sea level. The fire officers were with us this morning checking the safety of the trees etc.
I am exhausted and I have just been down to the local supermarket. The whole community is pulling together. It will certainly be a glass of wine or two with dinner tonight. I am very tired.
