R8D51 – Pick A Poison

Last night with the girls I gave them the option of doing one of 4 items. They were supposed to do 10 of each for a total of 20 in 20 minutes. I later decided that choice was not something you give a teenager so I made them do 5 of each. In fact they only made 11 total not 20 which was not impressive at all. However… I only made 15 so I guess my expectations were a little high!

The choices they didn’t get to make were:
Pick a poison

5x each one

5 chin up
10 push up
15 air squat

5 hip pullover
10 beam jumps
15 lunge switch

5 skin cat recover
10 leg lifts
15 vsnaps

5 ring inversions
10 dips
15 handstand shoulder touch

Tuesday I really, REALLY didn’t want to work out but I thought I would just go grab a random Insanity DVD and see how I felt. I picked Cardio power and resistance and in under 40 minutes I was done, grateful and relieved I had actually done something. I don’t do enough Insanity, in fact, I don’t really do enough DVD work at all any more but I suppose that will change as the weather gets colder and I refuse to go out on the deck or even into the garage to work out. This insanity DVD is good, it’s actually one of my favourites but I think I may say that about all of them now that I don’t have to do one every day!

Round 4 Day 39 – Cardio, Power and Resistance

Today was a piece of cake. It was supposed to be Pure Cardio but since I did that last time I thought I would change it up and do CPR instead. This is a pretty easy workout as far as insanity goes, I am not sure why. Maybe because some of it is bodyweight work and I can do that all day. Anyway, I felt good, it went by in a flash and that is always good news. Of course, I wore my VFF’s and even though my big toenail is sore it didn’t feel sore in the shoes.

My FitDay process is also still going strong but I seem to really lack behind in my calorie count. I am down 15lbs in about 4 weeks though so I guess that is why. My strength isn’t down, neither is my cardio so I guess everything is still OK. I do have a lot to burn still, being 265 isn’t exactly borderline supermodel so I am not going to start worrying just yet.
