Friday~ So I guess I didn’t forget how to exercise! 😉
I taught Totally Toned today. I said I taught Totally Toned today! I actually participated! I figured since
I am a slacker there were only 2 ladies that I could not use the old ” I’m checking form” excuse. ( I totally check form though, really).
Today’s class has a Core Concentration. So that is what we did. CORE GALORE.
We did this little number 5x throughout class:
10 reps using a stability ball–
forearm plank hold on ball
We did the above core first and then moved on to:
Off set lunges
dead lift to high pull
off set push ups
lunge hold + “running” hammer curls + 10 lunge pulses
seated alt. shoulder press (tempo paced)
alt. chest press (tempo paced)
repeat everything 1 more time!
Ok, so I did most of the workout. I did all of the above and part of what we did next:
hip circles ( I did these!)
lower back series (nope)
stretch ( I did this!)
It felt good to do something organized again. Shame on me!
After class I actually made my way to the gym. I know. I did. After
wasting time talking for about 15 minutes I made my way up the steps to do a HIIT workout on the elliptical. I planned on warming up for 3-5 minutes, but it was happily extended when I chatted with some friends! My warm up was about 10 minutes long. The HITT was 15 seconds hard 15 seconds easy ( I just stopped or slowed down- I find that easier than switching the levels for only 15 seconds)
Resistance /Ramp Height
I then did some steady state for a whopping 3 minutes with letting my HR stay above 150 ( It was 165-169 during the HIIT intervals) and I cooled down for about 2 minutes…I let my HR get below 130 and then I was done! My workout today was about 22-23 minutes long.
I hope to vlog this (Totally Toned) routine for you this weekend. My camera person is too busy watching My Little Pony at the moment and cannot be bothered.
I am feeling a bit back to myself now. I always get all weird
anxious when Matt is out-of-town for whatever reason. He was gone for work obligations for 2 nights. When he is away I like to keep busy with lots of pastries and pizza ( for breakfast? Count me in!). It’s just what I do. Just keepin’ it real! I act normal around the kids. Well, maybe not, I am a lot nicer to them when I am anxious. Knowing that Matt would be back today put my mind at ease and I was able to function as the normally awesome mean mom that I usually am. Kids beware- your mommy is back, now go to your rooms!!! 😉 I am fine when he is out-of-town and the kids are with him. Not sure what that means, but whatever. It does not happen a lot so let’s all be thankful for that!
On tap for Saturday: Running!!
What makes you act weird?
