Same as last week… I did BodyCombat and Personal training last night and BodyPump this morning… only I did cycle yesterday too and BodyPump this morning also had plyometrics. Super super sore. I’m less than a week away from finishing the Fit 360 program. Nothing else to add 🙂 Just testing a photo in this new layout.

Yesterday I wrote about how great kettlebells was and how I felt fine and went to BodyPump yesterday anyway. Well, oww. By mid-day yesterday I was feeling very sore in my legs and upper back. Today I feel like a cripple. Walking is very difficult because my upper and lower back are sore, my obliques are sore, my glutes, quads and inner thighs are sore. And when I say sore I mean SORE! I woke up this morning and could hardly walk, so what did I do? I went to RPM! In hind-sight probably not the greatest idea, but I was up early and energized. If I spent that hour at home sedentary it wouldn’t have been a very great start to the day. So off to the gym I went! My original intention was to just take it slow and have a casual ride, but I learned quickly that  my poor sore legs did better when moving faster and with a higher resistance. I burned 450 calories this morning. Now my legs hurt even more… what can I say? I’m a glutton for punishment. Looking forward to BodyFlow tomorrow and a relatively easy morning workout.

This weekend was great. We had my dad’s 50th birthday and Steve’s 27th. Which means, lots of bad eating. I worked out on Friday and Saturday but wasn’t able to make it on Sunday. I made a cheesecake for Steve’s Birthday. It was a lower-fat cheesecake that was made with a combination of sour cream, ricotta cheese, and cream cheese. It was actually really good considering the health factor. I’d much rather eat a slice of that cheesecake for 245 calories than a piece of cream cheese cheesecake for double or more! I topped the cake with a strawberry glaze and sliced fresh strawberries. It was very pretty.

This week has been intense in terms of workouts and it’s only Wednesday morning! Monday I did Abs and Yoga, my usual Monday routine. Last night I did BodyCombat and I had a group training session where we worked with Kettlebells. BodyCombat was fun, at first it felt really silly punching nothing, but it was quite a little workout. I burned 280 calories in the 40 minutes I was in the class. I got there late since the class starts at 5:30 and I don’t even get off work until 5:00, but I talked to the instructor and she said she doesn’t mind if I come every week a little late, as long as I ease my way into the workout. The personal training session was very difficult, but a lot of fun. I worked with 25 or 35 lb kettlebells the whole time. It was not easy, but it was fun. I’m a big fan of varied workouts! This morning was BodyPump and I worked a little harder than usual (I’ve been upping it almost every time). I bought lifting gloves this morning since I’ve been having hand-pain from lifting. I’m hoping that helps.

Just working harder to look better, run faster, and be stronger!
