Hip Hop Abs Day 23

Fat Burning Cardio
Ab Sculpt

Yeah, ok, it's fun and it's a nice sweat to loosen up after PiYo, but I am simply tired of Fat Burning Cardio.  Yeah, really tired of it.  That is all.

PiYo Day 42

Sweat

I don't know why I tend to put the workout off when I get to this one.  It really isn't that bad.  Maybe it's the title.  I start thinking about how hot it gets in the living room about 10 minutes into a PiYo workout.  It's surprising how a workout that is based on Pilates and Yoga and has almost no impact can make you sweat like a pig dog.  

But you feel sooooo good when it's done.  If you haven't tried PiYo, you need to.  Seriously, do it.  You will not regret it.  Well, if you get distracted and fall on your head you'll regret it, but otherwise you'll love it.  Really you will.

Hip Hop Abs Day 22

Guess I'll just have to try harder.

Total Body Burn

So, this on runs on a bit.  It works ya, but it just seems to go on and on.  I have to say that the whole extra bun floor work at the end is just adding insult to injury.  Really by that point the buns are screaming and some old school Jane Fonda hydrant crap is just mean.  Mean I tell ya.

But ya know, we do it because it works.  I may be tubby but I do have a nice ass for a big girl.  I wasn't blessed with it (no one in my family was, seriously, we're all so flat butts), nope I built it.  Now I need to shrink it.

PiYo Day 41

Drench

And what do we say to the PiYo flip?
Not today.
There are parts of Drench where I check to see of the video is on fast forward.  Seriously, I check every time.  The first 5 times she goes straight from a low lunge to a knee lift I am convinced she's on fast forward, because try as I might I cannot do that as fast as this tiny little blond minx.

And that whole PiYo flip thing....fa ged abow dit.  There are some days where this move is just not going to happen and today was one of those days.

Ouch.

Hip Hop Abs Day 20

this looks innocent enough
ouch though, really
ouch
Hips, Buns and Thighs

Finally getting back on track and enjoying some cardio.

However, this workout, as fun as it is leaves me cursing Mr. Shaun T (Mr. T?) for the following 2 days.  But it's a good kind of cursing, because there isn't much in this world that is more satisfying
than that pain of sitting down or standing up from sitting down the day after a good beat down of a leg day.

Seriously, it hurts to pick up anything off the floor but you smile when it hurts cause you know your rear view is getting hot.

PiYo Day 39

Sculpt

Well, Repticon threw me way off my schedule, but I got back into it last week.

When Repticon hit I was working on 4 programs and it was a little exhausting and stressful.  So, I've decided that on my birthday and for Christmas each year I will scale back to 1 program and then add the others back 1 per month.  If I stay on target I shouldn't end up doing more than 2 programs for any more that a week at a time.  A little challenge from time to time but I think I'm well on my way to learning my lesson about slacking off for 2 weeks at a time.

With that said I jumped back in with Sculpt.  I have to say, even with my slack ass consistency, I am getting better at PiYo.  Yeah, some days I get like zero hours sleep and that makes for some really tough PiYo sessions, but over all I'm getting stronger in the movements and I swear at Ms. Johnson on my TV screen so much less.

Despite all of my natural tendencies to shoot myself in the foot, progress is happening.

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

Buns
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.
