If you’re wondering why my titles change…. One, I’m experimenting and seeing which way I like to title my posts. Two, sometimes I can think of a title that I really like. Three, and sometimes I can’t. lol. Tonight would be one of those nights where I can’t really think of anything creative. I guess I’m worn out from spending the day on my lap top :-/ Too bad I’m still way behind on videos for my boys :-( I’m planning on getting back on track after my race… which is only a few days away!! yikes!
Bootycall – Tone It Up’s Under the Sea 12 reps X3sets
Spent most of my morning working on my blog and organizing videos.
Turbo Fire Day 67 – HIIT25 didn’t feel that much longer. It’s 4 routines 2X each. I noticed that the routines were a little bit longer than the ones from HIIT15/HIIT20. We did a few more reps of each of the moves – which was quite tiring when it was the sumo squats and anything with tuck jumps. But it still goes by fast :-) I modified the tuck jumps. With my race being a few days away, I decided that I better take it easy on my knees. Sculpt30 was a little painful because my arms were still sore. Usually I am adding resistance but today, I eased off a bit so I could actually finish the sets. It still burned a lot! But I pushed through :-)
Tone It Up’s Bikini Series Challenge for today was SELF Magazine’s Drop10 Size Shrinker HIIT. I decided to do this on the treadmill on an incline. I have no idea what the course is going to be like but since Big Sur is known for it’s hills, I’m assuming that there will be some hills even on my course. I figured one more day of hill training wouldn’t hurt.
Ended with a combination of two plank challenges from two Tone It Up Sisters – Sophie and Emma. Sophie’s was 25 pushups, 50 sec plank and 30 sec side plank each side. Emma’s was that killer 5min plank with tummy tucks. I started with 25 pushups on my knees. My arms are so dead that I knew the only way I was doing 25 at one time was on my knees. But I will be working on doing 25 regular pushups :-) Then I did a 1min plank, 1min tummy tucks, 30sec side plank each side, 1min plank and ended with 1min of tummy tucks. It was tough! I will try to do this one more often because it is a nice challenge :-)
