Well I decided after school that I would have an awesome workout tonight ~ and I did!! I feel like I can tell I am getting better at these insane workouts. I never thought I would be able to finish Plyometric Cardio Circuit, let alone follow it up with a second cardio workout! I am quite proud tonight.
I really had to push through to finish this workout. It is so tough! So much sweatness going on ~ Dripping!! I truly admire basketball players after doing the final circuit of Level 1 Basketball Drills – they killed me. I literally collapsed when I was finished and just layed on the ground for a few. Ah, Insanity.
Thanks for an amazing workout Shaun T!! :)
I followed up Shaun T with my girl, Chalene ~ and a new DVD called Burn Intervals. I am still stuck on this interval kick – I am loving it, though. In Burn Intervals, you do about 2 minutes of cardio and then 2 minutes recovery period. And by recovery period, I mean weight lifting / arm exercises. Even recovery period is tough. This is perfect and much needed for me. I need, need, need strength training, especially arm exercises. My arms were burning like crazy during this workout!!
Thanks Chalene!! :)
Dinner #2 was next. I had four mini-meals today – and am only posting my last one for time and pic purposes. The last of my brocoli (need to hit the store) and a small salad to use up some love lettuce (from Vday) before it goes bad. Yum!
Dessert was such a random assortment of sweetness because I obviously could not make any type of dessert decision at this point. I had to snap a pic of all ingredients. Graham crackers are missing from this photo!
I told you it was random. Back to my Sunmaid Cinnamon Raisin Bagels – I had 1/2 of one with spray butter, Sun Crystals, and cinnamon. I also had 1/2 a graham cracker with Dark Chocolate Dreams PB on top. And finally, a new addition to my desserts lately – Goldfish Schmoes. Yum!
Tomorrow Lent begins ~ I am considering what my sacrifice will be. For the last couple of years, I have added a good habit to my life, rather than giving something up. I am considering going this route – Hm? I think that I am thinking too hard about it. I am trying to create a Lent PLAN which is probably not necessary, though I am sure that you guys understand plans/goals/lists being involved in all aspects of life. I just do not think it is supposed to be this difficult to make the decision. I will let you know tomorrow!!
One more thing on my mind (well, actually a million, but I am going to share this one): Heart Rate Monitors! Do you own a HRM? Do you use it every time you workout? Do you love it / hate it? Thoughts Please! Do you like knowing how many cals you burn during your workout?? If you have one, what brand do you have? I am just trying to decide if this is something I want to spend $ on. I love that Cassie has one and gets to know how many cals she burns during each of her workouts!! I would love to know how many cals I burn ~ I think ?? But not sure? Decisions, decisions.
I leave you with my little baby Lillian and her new-to-me coat. It is a hand-me-down from a puppy friend. Thanks puppy friend!!!
Tomorrow is already Hump-Day! Have a good one! :) Goodnight!
