Feeling it

Worked out this evening, doing the Sculpt 3/4 video.

I love that feeling when your arms, back, and chest are burning and tight during a good workout.

Paczki Day, and Ash Wednesday

Tuesday - not so good.
Wednesday - Good day - eating 100%, Sweat & abs in evening

Monday 2fer

Off from work today (Day off switches to Mondays in Lent, which starts Weds).

I did Sculpt in the AM (with decline push-ups for the first time nursing the shoulder). If felt great!

Then a few minutes ago I did Abs (which is usually done with Sweat video).
Nothing like sneaking in an extra 10 minutes.

Another good week!

Tuesday - Sweat, Sculpt and Abs!
Weds - late night abs
Thursday - Swim and Sweat & Abs
Friday - Sculpt (upping the reps to full 15 per set)
Saturday - Sweat and Abs, and looking forward to shoveling later today!

And am enjoying being plugged in to the video producers on-line stuff

Another good Friday

It was a busy day today, for my day off.

Jennifer spent time on the boys bedroom (wainscotting), and we had a meeting in the morning to begin planning for Little League - we are running the concession stand.

I took the kids bowling. I did throw a game - with my right hand (I am a lefty for sports). Didn't want to crank the bad shoulder.

In the evening I did the Sculpt video, and am up to 80 push-ups. It was a good workout and the shoulder feels pretty good too.

After sneaking in my abs workout last night, this afternoon I swam, and then this evening did Sweat 3/4 and abs again.

My mid-section is really sore right now.

no pain, no gain????

Fitting in a workout

Long, busy day yesterday.
I had every intention of going to the gym for a quick one, but it never happened.
Late night meeting brought me home late.

But in my desire to do SOMETHING everyday but Sunday, I went downstairs right before midnight and did abs.

Today - Meg needed me early AM, so I will get a workout in this evening.

Getting on-line help AND BONUS

Yesterday was a bust. No excuse, just a bust

This morning is off to a good start. Did the sweat 3/4 video at 6:30am.

I also signed up on the video maker's website for on-line charting and was assigned an email trainer. An interesting concept.

And if you log 0n at each work out, you are eligible to win a daily drawing for various levels of cash.
It would be nice to win a small prize to buy the next program!

BONUS - decided to work out again. Did Sculpt 3/4 this evening while the family watched American Idol. Up to 75 push ups (applying ice liberally right now).
I will be sore in the AM.

Sore this evening

I did the sculpt video today, and did it hard, to finish a pretty good week of exercise!

Monday - Sweat vid
Tuesday - Sculpt vid
Weds - Jillian Michael's evil torture (sweat/sculpt combo)
Thursday - Sweat
Friday - Jog
Saturday - Sculpt (and shoveling too).

Shoulder is really sore this evening, and my legs (from all the push-ups and squats).

A good morning

I have been struggling with getting up as early as I would like to. Today I did it anyway, and went out for a jog/walk - about 20 minutes total (11 minutes of it jogging).

Haven't done that in a while.

It felt refreshing and invigorating.

D.v. I will get another workout in this evening.

I am really trying to crank it up.

4 in a row

This evening I did the Power 90 Sweat (I managed to get the DVD to work).

Shoulder is pretty sore, but I managed the entire workout. I think the Sculpt 2 days ago, and Jillian's workout yesterday (both of which have a bunch of push-up) made it quite fatigued.

Today I did manage the entire sweat video though, with yoga and punches, despite the sore wing.

PS - I video taped myself working out today and I have a LONG way to go......

Back to Jillian

The DVD player won't play (or even open for that matter and my Sweat vid is in there).

So along with Jennifer, William and Meg, we did the Jillian Michaels thing again. UGHHHH

Two good workouts

Monday afternoon, before dinner - did the Sweat video - and did it HARD (extra high hops, speedier punches, higher kicks). Anything to avoid going back to the Jillian Michaels Videos

Tuesday evening (during American Idol) - Sculpt video. Even did 65 push ups...which is very hopeful with my bum shoulder

She's evil!

Okay - not really. But that Jillian Michaels video on ExerciseTV is something else.
I did phase 2 today. WOW.
I just don't stretch and move like those 98lbs models either.

Not the greatest week for workouts, but I did shake it up a bit.

Two Jillian Michael's torchures, a swim, and a lot of walking around Chicago O'Hare and Detroit Metro Airport yesterday.

Now off to ice the shoulder.

After a sluggish start to the week....

...I got in motion today with something new.

With our exercise tv on the cable television, Jennifer found a workout with Jillian Michaels (the hardcore trainer on The Biggest Loser).

It was a hardcore workout!

Weights and Cardo combined. Wow!
