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 :-)

Half Meta-D/ Half Bombshell Spell

Went a little heavy on the veggies for breakfast today :-)

M2: Half a grapfruit w/ stevia

M3: Simple Shakeology: water, pineapple, and ice.

M4: PeanutButter and Dark Chocolate Kind Bar.

M5: Left over Salmon and Broccoli

100 oz. water.

BeachBody Day63 &Day64

I got so busy with getting ready for my first 10k and life in general that I didn’t have much time to blog. Trying to remember what I did last week is tough – especially when I didn’t write much down :-/ So I combining Friday(Day63) and Saturday(Day64).

Day63 – Friday: I was able to get up for my bootycall workout :-) It was really tough because I was worn out from yesterday and I really really wanted to sleep in.

It was Tone It Up’s Under the Sea workout x3 again :-) Can you tell I like it? Lol.

Got my ToneItUp Beach Babe DVD!!

I’ve also been busy getting my youngest prepped for Kindergarten. I honestly can’t believe that he starts this August. So I spend about a half hour every day working with him. I usually do my TurboFire workout right afterwards.

Turbo Fire Day 61 – It was fun to do Fire55EZ. I’ve got the routine down now so I focus on giving it my all. I kept it low impact during the Fire Drills though. I wanted to save my knees for my run.

I also managed to get to the gym and do a HIIT workout on the treadmill – Drop10 Engine Revver. Wanted to get one last run in :-)

2min work, 2min rest 8 rounds w/ 4 min cool down at Incline10

Ended with a quick 2min plank. I had a lot to do to get ready for our crazy Saturday. Plus my sister came to stay the night so I spent some time with her.

Meals: I really don’t remember everything I ate.

M1: Chobani Champions Vanilla Chocolate Chunk with Almond Butter and Chia seeds.

M2: Mango and Pineapple

Mango and Pineapple for M2.

M3: Can’t remember.

M4: Green Protein Shake.

Green Protein Shake: Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, Vanilla Protein Powders, Almond Butter and Spinach

M5: Trip Tip and Veggies.

Dinner: TriTip and Veggies

Day64 – Saturday: It was just a crazy day. I got up early to do my TurboFire workout because I knew I wouldn’t have time to do it later on.

TurboFire HIIT20

Turbo Fire Day 62: I intended to do my workout at the gym. I packed my laptop in my gym bag and headed out but the gate to our gym was broken :-( So I came home but the boys were already awake. To keep them quiet while my sister slept, I decided to work out in their room.  HIIT20 wasn’t the easiest to do early in the morning in the boys room but I managed. Kept everything low impact but high intensity.  This one goes by so fast. Sculpt30 was also a tricky to do in the boys room but the boys did a good job of staying out of the way.

Then it was time for their baseball games, traveling 2 hours to Sacramento, a birthday party, and then finally to Ben’s mom’s house. It was a really hot day in Sacramento so the boys and Ben went swimming as soon as we go to his mom’s house. The water was just a little too cold for me but I did sit back and enjoy the show.

I did do a 2 min plank before bed.

2min PlankADay

Meals –

M1: Starbucks spinach and feta wrap.

M2: Luna bar.

M3: Snapea Crisps – on the road.

M4: Birthday party food. I was starving by the time the food was done. BBQ chicken, a tiny bit of potato salad and macaroni salad, fruit, veggies, and a small piece of birthday cake :-)

M5: Tri-tip (again)  and chicken with brown rice.

At least 80 oz. of water. I was continuously drinking water because it was so hot but I was drinking bottled water and from a glass.
