Fitness Friday Week 49 of 2013
Fitness Friday this week – should be called Freezing Fitness Friday! It has gotten very cold here in Texas in the last 24 to 36 hours. It was a beautiful day on Wednesday – 79 degrees and yesterday it was 34. Today it is 27 and suppose to go down to 16 tonight. On top of the cold temperatures we also had some freezing rain and sleet early this morning. A lot of people are without power. So far our power has not been affected and I am hoping it stays that way. Praying for all those without power for it to be restored to them soon.
Well – on to the fitness post. Below are the workouts I used this week:
This week I chose to to a schedule of cardio, weights and then yoga. So my workouts were:
- Monday – Cathe – Rockout Knockout
- Tuesday – Cathe – Lean Legs & Abs
- Wednesday – Shiva Rea Yoga – More Daily Energy
- Thursday – Cathe X10 Hi-Lo workout
- Friday – Cathe Flex Train
- Saturday – Shiva Rea Yoga – More Daily Energy
I really like Rockout Knockout. It is a kickboxing workout that uses weighted gloves for part of the workout. Lots of sweating in this cardio session.
My yoga session on Wednesday was accompanied by my two faithful workout friends – my cats. They like yoga workouts much better than cardio. The More Daily Energy dvd has several workouts to choose from in the yoga matrix. I chose to do Evolution Standing Flow and the shavasana which took about 27 minutes.
Today’s workout, Flex Train, took a little motivation to get out of bed and get it done since it was so cold. Once I got moving around everything was good. I was just glad to wake up and have power and a warm house. This workout has lots of different chapters to mix and match. Today I chose to do the warm up, legs & shoulders, disc lunges, legs-firewalkers, core-abs and the stretch. Lots of variety in this workout and the shoulder section gives you a real burn as well as the ab work.
I also created a new smoothie recipe earlier this week. I used some leftover cranberry sauce I made on Thanksgiving in the recipe. I am calling it Cranberry Christmas Smoothie. I thought it was really good! Recipe is below:
This time of year is busy so it seems more difficult to fit workouts in every day. I usually try and schedule something even if it is only a 20 or 25 minute session. It keeps me on track and starts my day off better if I find time to workout even for just a few minutes. I have not decided yet what I am going to schedule for next week. I might do the cardio, weights and yoga routine again. I am also considering ordering the new P90X3 that is coming out next week. My fitness group on facebook will be starting a challenge for 90 days with the new dvd’s and I would like to participate. Changing my workouts regularly keeps me interested and offers me new challenges. What workouts are you currently doing? Click on Leave a Reply to tell me about them.
