BeachBody Day 80
I’m really surprised that I’m still up and able to type this up :-) I had a really great and sweaty day! I had to be up at 5a so I could go to the gym before Ben left to go to work. I wasn’t looking forward to it. I’m not even sure I slept all that great but I made myself get up, get dressed, and get out the door. You know that quote – “Get up and exercise before your mind realizes what you’re doing”? That’s what I kept thinking of on my way to the gym. I did yesterday’s Bikini Series challenge – the Drop10 Fat Zapper on the bike for 30min. I love that HIIT workouts get me sweating :-) I was wide awake and full of energy once I finished. I am really thinking of getting up at 5a more often because I can get so much done. I got my workout in, showered – and not just a quick 5min one but a nice relaxing one – made lunch for Ben and Gio, and had breakfast ready before the boys even got up :-)
After dropping the boys off at school, I wanted to get some cleaning done. The apartment needed it badly! So I broke my morning up – spent the first half cleaning the kitchen and the boys’ bathroom. Took a break for a snack then did my Turbo Fire workout.
Turbo Fire Day 78 – I was glad to see Fire45EZ again. There aren’t any fire drills in this one but it’s combo after combo. I put in a lot of intensity. Punched hard and kicked as high as I could :) I had a lot of fun and I was drenched with sweat afterwards. So much for staying clean after that nice shower ;-) Followed with Stretch10. My legs – especially my hamstrings are super sore from yesterday’s Lean Legs Pyramid. It felt good to stretch them out. I added the Drop10 Sculpting X3 to wrap up my morning workout.
Did more cleaning after picking Seppe up and had lunch. Finished cleaning after picking Gio up from school. My apartment is clean! Well it was for a few hours. The kitchen is already dirty again. lol.
Tone It Up’s Bikini Sereis challenges for today was to crank things up a bit by adding 30 min of cardio to my day and eating a Lean, Clean and Green dinner. I could have considered my TurboFire as my extra cardio but I decided to hit the gym after the boys went to bed. I did a 30min treadmill program that had inclines for my third sweat session of the day :-)
Ended with my usual plankaday.
M1: Variation of the SlimDown Scramble. Basically I just put the veggies on top of the egg white instead of mixing it all together. I like this better for some reason.
M2: half a grapefruit and 4 dark chocolate almonds.
M3: Chocolate Shakeology with Zico, kale, and banana. I am going to be having Shakeology for lunch every day this week. Trying to use it up.
M4: Tried a new Larabar that I found at Target.
M5: Salmon with a Balsamic/Honey sauce (from FitFoodJunkie) with grilled eggplant and zucchini.
100 oz. of water. 1 Zico. 1c of Chamomile Tea
I have my alarm set for another 5a bootycall tomorrow :-) Really looking forward to doing the new “Love Your Legs” workout.
