I set my alarm and got up. I was slow to get to my bootycall workout. My living room was a bedroom for grandma and grandpa so I had to do my workout in my bedroom. I couldn’t decide what to do. I finally just made up something:
20 Squats with a alb medicine ball
20 Bicep curls w/ 5lb weights
20 Deadlifts with Upright rows – 5lbs
10 Regular Pushups
20 Tummy Tucks
Repeated it 3 times.
Then it was time for my busy morning to start. Get the kids ready for school, drop them off, come home to shower, then head back to Gio’s school to chaperone his field trip to the county history museum. I packed my water bottle and a Kind bar so I wouldn’t miss my Meal 2 :-)
The field trip went alright. I am always amazed at the amount of energy kids have. I think they just drain it from us. lol. It was tiring standing around for 2 hours. By the time I got back it was time to get Seppe and make lunch. I fell asleep for a half hour and woke up just in time to pick Gio up from school.
I finally got a chance to workout after doing homework with Gio.
—————————— Turbo Fire Day 18 ——————————
Today it was HIIT15 and Tone30. I’m not sure if there is a specific order I’m suppose to do the workout where I have 2 to do. I normally would have done the HIIT workout first but Tone It Up had a post on their blog about doing Toning before cardio to help burn fat. So I thought I’d try it today. I did Tone in 30 first. This was a new one. Got to use both the resistance band and lower body band. Definitely worked my entire body. I never would have thought that placing the lower body band on my feet and lifting one leg at a time would really work my legs.
Before I did the HIIT workout I did the M100.This is a really great cardio. It’s quick but gets your heart pumping :-) For the HIIT15, I did as mana jumps as I could this time around :-) I can’ get my legs up as high as they do on the DVD but at least I’m jumping. My knees have been feeling really great. I made sure not to overdo it though. I felt great. I really hope I can get as intense as they do in DVD. Ending with a 2 min plank.
Meals: Today I had more carbs because I will be going for 7 miles on my run tomorrow and I wanted to make sure I fueled up :-)
