This morning started with Brass and I running close to 4 miles. It wasn’t very fast since Brass was done after 2 miles. 11:2x something was just too slow. I didn’t feel right, not sure if Brass will be coming on many more runs with me.
How can I be mad at this face??
After the run the
torture real fun began. My boss wanted me to try a work out video she considered very difficult.
Hello Billy Blanks! Here’s what I liked about the video:
*It made me sweat.
*I definitely felt like I got a work out in.
*The amount of reps felt good, not too many, or too few.
*I felt like I was working different muscles differently. In the words of Tony Horton “variety is the spice of life”
*The arm part of the video was challenging, and felt good.
Here’s what I disliked:
*I am not coordinated for the foot work (exactly why I will NEVER like Zumba!)
*I couldn’t use my 8lb weights since all the weight work was cardio.
*There was other combo moves that I couldn’t get down, even after doing it slowly 2-3 times. When they got to the cardio part I was just moving all crazy and it didn’t feel right.
*when it was over I was thinking “that’s it”?
Brass sat on the couch during the entire work out and supervised.
Green smoothie for breakfast!
Large handful of spinach
And kashi I lean crunch on top
It was kinda thick, so I ate it with a spoon.
Then we got a special delivery!
Hubs got an email about a special release of this wine to wine club members. He felt special, so he bought 3 bottles and had them shipped to us. I look forward to trying this new wine tonight!
Have you tried Taebo? What did you think?
