Working Out Week 17 of 2014
April 26, 2014
This week was a really busy week for me – I can not believe it is almost May… The workout schedule this week was still the Cathe Friedrich April rotation – week 4 of the rotation. The schedule I completed was as follows:
- Monday – Athletic Training Leg Cardio Mix -35 min. + Ab Circuits Weights & Plates 19 min
- Tuesday – All Out Low Impact Hiit (Xtrain series) – 39 min.
- Wednesday –
Legs and Glutes– Great Glutes timesaver 4 – 46 min.
- Thursday –
Cardio Kicks– Cardio Supersets (LIS series) – 41 min.
- Friday –
Power Hour– Circuit Blast – 44 min.
- Saturday – Yoga Max – premix 1 – 32 min.
The ones listed above that have a strike through are ones I do not have so I subbed in another one that I figured would be similar. Below are photos from this past weeks schedule:
Monday was the longest session of workouts this past week since there were two on that day. My cat was once again supervising my efforts. I guess watching me working out tired him out because after taking my three sons to school I came back home and couldn’t find him – he usually comes out to greet me when I get home from somewhere. I had not yet put away my fitness gear and went in the living room to do that and here he was sleeping among the weights, discs, weighted gloves and mat. He just loves those slide and glide discs – every time I have them out he sits near them.
Circuit Blast is a challenging workout using the long step 4 risers high and doing various cardio, weight and push up circuits for 44 minutes. I can tell that doing P90X3 and T25 have given me a lot more stamina and strength. I was able to complete all the box jumps – there are like 12 or 16 in a row – and all the various push up circuits without having to go to the knees like I used to for some of them. I got a few cool photos of the box jumps too and was able to make the above collage – I thought that was neat.
I had my root canal (first one of those) on Wednesday and that went fine. I think the anticipation and anxiety over having it done was worse than the actual procedure which took about an hour. At least my tooth is feeling better now and I can eat on that side of my mouth without it hurting anymore.
I read something I thought was a good quote – motivation from a facebook friends post the other day. It said: FIT MOMS: WE DON’T HAVE TIME, WE MAKE TIME. Lisa Olson posted this and she has a great facebook page called Live Life Be Active, that I follow.
I feel like the above statement is true for anyone who is committed to working out and making sure they get it done 5 to 7 days a week. I don’t have an extra hour every day to workout I just choose to get up earlier than the rest of my family and get it done. I think that everyone nowadays is busy and if you are serious about getting fit and being healthy then you have to make the time to Get IT Done! Once you make fitness a habit and stick with it that just becomes part of who you are and what you do. There are a lot of workouts out there that only take about 30 minutes of your time or you can even just start walking for 25 to 30 minutes a day. My husband has started doing this 10,000 steps a day commitment with a program through his work and I can tell he has lost some weight and he seems to be sleeping better and feel better. Exercise has so many great benefits.
Well, I hope everyone has had a good week and got in some type of exercise. I would love to hear about your current workout program – click on Leave a Reply and tell me about it.
