Rest and Stretch

BeachBody Day83

Friday is now my new Active Rest Day. After yesterday’s rough long run and TurboFire workout, I was ready to have a more laid back day. I still got up for my bootycall at 5:30a. I guess I’m already use to getting up at 5a because I was just awake by then. Plus, I actually went to bed before midnight last night – which is rare. I did Tone It Up’s Under the Sea X3 and Sun kissed Abs. I still had lots of time before waking the boys up for school so I went for a 2 mile walk.

When I came in to wake the boys up, Gio was awake but said he wasn’t feeling well. At first I thought he was just whining because he didn’t feel like going to school – yes, my 1st grader already tries to get out going to school :-/ – But I took his temperature and he did have a fever :-( So I kept him home. Luckily it’s Ben’s day off so he was able to help me with Gio.

My morning workout was doing Tone It Up’s Happy Hour Challenge: Favorite move from the Beach Babe DVD. I have several favorites but I decided to go with the Mermaid X20 – each side every hour. I started at 8a and ended at 10p. My obliques are already very sore.

Even though I was taking it easy, I wanted to do yesterday’s Bikini Series challenge – HIIT the Beach. It’s a short HIIT workout that worked up a pretty good sweat :-) I will probably do this one a lot because I can get a quick and decent workout in when I’m running short on time. I can repeat it if I want to make my workout longer.

Turbo Fire Day 81 – I saved Stretch40 the evening because I love doing this one before bed time. It really helps relax and stretch me out. My legs have been needing a good extended stretch and this felt absolutely amazing tonight. I could have easily fallen asleep during the mediation part :-) Even though I’m still sore in a few places, I don’t feel as tight and tense.

Doing a 2 min plank for plankaday then getting ready for bed. Early tball games tomorrow.

Meals:

M1: Egg white scramble with tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach. Tried a half Meta-D half Bombshell Spell mix. I added the cayenne and cinnamon, left out the honey, didn’t use as much pineapple juice and added more water. It’s definitely not as sweet as the bombshell spell, but easier for me to handle than the Meta-D :-)
