Monday was New Year's Eve. I was still recovering from the cold, and I spent the day shopping, then New Year's Eve-ing with the fam, so, no workout for me.
Tuesday (HAPPY NEW YEAR!) I felt much better, but I slept til noon (NOON!) so I credit it to that. I took it easy, and again, no workout.
Wednesday was my first day back in the game! I was so excited to start a new PiYo Lesson-- Lesson 24. (See previous post for my playlist!) This Lesson did not disappoint. Holy. Crap. It. Was. Hard. I was sore for three days afterwards! I love it, though-- "When you're having fun, you don't mind working hard!"
I wore my new Gather and Crow crops, and shell pink Cool Racerback.
Thursday I got up at 5:15 to do some cardio. I did TurboFire HIIT 20 (my fave!) and then had my coffee and toast reward. (Note: My legs were so sore from Wednesday's PiYo, that this HIIT was 1000x harder than usual!)
Friday (still sore!) I rested.
Saturday was the Winter Group Fitness Schedule Launch at the Y! Colleen and I taught a combination of PiYo Lessons. Wowza! It was cardio, it was strength, it was flexibility, it was awesome!!! So much fun. :)
I wore my Zella capris and my new gray and polar cream Free to Be tank!
Today I was excited to test out my new cold-weather running gear! I ran almost 3 miles, and then came home and did ChaLEAN Extreme Push Circuit 1. I had not really lifted heavy for MONTHS, so my arms are like noodles now. Washing my hair was a challenge, ha! I am sure I will be feeling that tomorrow! (You know I love it!) I love this workout because it's intense, and it's short-- 30-40 minutes, and I'm done! If you're looking for a versatile weight-lifting program, I highly recommend this one.
For my run, I wore my Ice Queen Pants and my Toasty Tech Pullover over a pink Long Sleeve Swiftly. My legs were slightly cold when I first started, but I warmed up after a few minutes, and then felt great!
Tomorrow is the first day of my winter teaching schedule, so that means new (and better!) workout plans for me! Here's the workout plan:
Monday: TURBO! at Refinery, 6pm
Tuesday: 2-3 mile run in the morning (depends how early I can drag myself up) and PiYo at Refinery, 5:30pm (Launching Lesson 24! COME!)
Wednesday: TurboFire HIIT in the morning, and PiYo at the Y, 6:40pm. (Let's feel the burn again!!)
Thursday: ChaLEAN Extreme Push Circuit 2 in the morning (this will be interesting, as I can't eat breakfast before I workout...) and Turbo at Refinery, 6:30pm. (Team teaching with Secily! You don't wanna miss this!)
Saturday: PiYo at the Y, 8am (Great way to start your weekend! Come!) and possibly some cardio, a run or TurboFire.
Sunday: 3 mile run, and ChaLEAN Extreme Push Circuit 3.
This schedule is a little ambitious, so I'm leaving some flexibility. If I need to, I can eliminate one of the morning workouts and bump it to Saturday. Stay tuned! :)
So happy to get back on a regular eating plan as well! Here's what I have planned for dinners this week:
- Baked alfredo tilapia with rice pilaf and steamed veggies
- Turkey burgers with baked fries and salad
- Breakfast for dinner-- scrambled eggs, hash browns, and Ezekiel toast
- Baked spaghetti with garlic bread and salad
- Amy's frozen enchiladas
- Amy's frozen Light and Lean lasagna
- Evol chicken and lime burrito
- Turkey burger?
- Jimmy Johns?
Happy New Year, friends!
