Rockin' Body Day 2

Mark Move and Groove
Party Express

Easy Easy followed by, let's sweat a whole lot.  It's easy to blow this program off as a fluffy addition to capitalize on the popularity of Hip Hop Abs, but it will get you moving and sweating.  And that's what it's about folks.  Get up and get moving, because as we age you have to keep moving so that you can keep the abilities that you have.

21 Day Fix Day 9

Upper Fix

lovin' it!  So simple, pick up some weights and do each exercise for a minute.  You can do anything to 60 seconds.  Well ok I can't do the scissor crunches for 60 seconds, but I'm getting there, and that's good enough.

Hip Hop Abs Day 19

Fat Burning Cardio
Ab Sculpt

The past two days have been a leg day and a buns day, so today is just all about loosening everything up so I can walk straight.  I know I was really looking forward to a couple of different workouts from this program, but the new ones were just so looooong.  Most programs are starting to move towards 30 minute workouts and I'm starting to enjoy it.  Mostly because it allows me to do more than one type of workout a day.

PiYo Day 38

Holy crap!  After Hips, Buns and Thighs yesterday I woke up feeling like Shaun T shot me in my left buttock.  Then we have PiYo Buns today.  It's gonna be a long four hours at work.  I'm going to do everything I can not to drop anything on the floor today.

Rockin' Body Day 1

loosen up and have a little fun
Mark Move and Groove

First day is kind of a let's get to know Shaun T day.  Get used to the way he cues the moves and teaches the routines.

This work out is really short and it seems really easy, but you build up a serious amount of sweat for 16 minutes.

I threw this program in because we are getting to the end of the year, and we've all got a lot going on.  This is an easy way to get into exercise and get into the habit of getting up and sweating a little every day, but it won't leave you exhausted and spent to get all your holiday crap done.

With Halloween (and it's candy) done, Repticon coming up for me, then birthdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas it's ok to gear down a little, but don't leave out the workouts completely, because the more you do them the more energy you're gonna have for everything else.  Ask any veteran exerciser, she'll tell you that you have more energy when you workout regularly.  It may not seem like that the first 10 days, but keep going, you'll see.

21 Day Fix Day 8

Total body Cardio Fix

Second time on this one, and yeah, serious sweating for a 30 minute workout.  I love the old school feel of this program.  Just simple 1 minute rounds with a 20 second rest.  Simple exercises, simple concept.

Don't get me wrong, I love TurboFire and P90X and Hip Hop Abs, but sometimes it's really refreshing to just get back to something simple.  It give you a chance to see how much strength you've attained when you aren't so worried about figuring out how to master intricate moves and innovative body positions.

Hip Hop Abs Day 14

looks a little silly, but you're gonna feel it tomorrow
Total Body Burn
Hips, Buns, and Thighs

Well, ask and ye shall receive.  Finally arrived at some new workouts in this program.  Ouch.  Total Body Burn is just as fun as the other offerings in this program, but it is so long.  So long.

Hips, Buns, and Thighs works some lunges and squats in angles that I wasn't sure I could do anymore since I quit practicing belly dance.  I'll be walking funny tomorrow.

Haaaave you met Karamel Marx?

Karamel Marx (name subject to change)
 So, I went to PetSmart again today.  Ever since the BF got a bearded dragon we are in there about 4 times a week.  We were holding off on getting any new equipment or critters until later this month when we go to Repticon.

But he's just so pretty!
Weeeeell, the best laid plans and all..
One of the reptile girls at the store pulled this little beauty out of a cage that I thought was empty.  He's a lovely caramel brown with yellow markings.  I flat out couldn't resist.  He's my first male leopard gecko and he's way more outgoing than Spotomous Prime, my female.

Spotomous Prime just after we got her.

Sweat hard folks, and stay out of the pet store, seriously, just don't go in.

21 Day Fix Day 5

She says that like its true. 
Cardio Fix

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Simple athletic moves and still done in 1 minute rounds.  I did well the first time through.  Tiny Ms. Autumn is growing on me.

I was down 4 pounds on the first round (we cheated a lot) and on day 3 of round 2 I'm down almost 4 pounds, so maybe I've found the program that will keep me from growing anymore.

We'll see what happens Repticon weekend though.

PiYo Day 34 and 35

Strength Intervals

I'm stepping up the pace a little because I'm trying to stick to the workouts.  It seems like I have a 2 week gap every month in my workouts and that needs to stop.

You see on November 16th we are going to Repticon.  On the 13th, round 2 of the 21 Day fix (eating plan) will be done and on the 14th I'll finally be done with my first round of PiYo.  I know it's taking forever.  Consistency, it's my biggest down fall.  That and cream cheese covered kryptonite brownies.

So, I'm looking to bust my ass from now until Repticon, take a weekend to relax and then come back home to some nice easy Hip Hop Abs for a week or so before I add in a new program.

The countdown begins....
