I’m losing steam as the challenge winds down. I’ve definitely gotten into good habits around working out after I’m done with my work for the day. It’s a great way to signify that I’m done with one part of the day and ready to relax into home life. I don’t know what my next 30-day challenge will be. I think it should have something to do with writing fiction. Maybe writing 500 words or so each day. I have a few more days to decide.
Friday, I did a 50-50-50 workout, which is where I do 5 sets of 10 push-ups, 10 squats, and 10 crunches. It’s not much, but it’s something other than sitting at my desk.
Saturday I went to an hour spin class. I love my spin class. I need to go more often.
Today I did two blogilates videos- both cardio-related. I did Heart on Fire- Pop Cardio and Hiitilates- Beautiful Burn.
Verdict: Both were good. I’m sweating a lot as I type this recap. I’d do both again. Together it was about 20 minutes of cardio.
Yesterday was Day 8! I made it more than a week, which is a great triumph if you know anything about trying to get back on the workout train after falling off for far too long.
For day 8 I did: Pop Pilates for Beginners: Total Body Workout
Verdict: I didn’t love this video. I’m not new to Pilates, so this workout really goes against what I know and love about Pilates, and that is few, targeted reps. In this video, during the leg workout, you do so many reps your muscles completely fatigue. I found myself with bad form on simple moves, which was a red flag for me. I won’t be doing this video again.
For day 9, I went to spinning at the gym
Verdict: So glad to get back to class after a 2 month hiatus. I’ve been going to this spinning class with friends for years and I really love it. It’s on Saturday mornings, so I can get it out of the way and start my weekend off right. Love it!
