Week 1 Day 3 Focus T25 - Total Body Circuit
I'm a sweaty mess after this workout! Yikes, this one is tough. Ever heard of a spider pushup? Neither did I. And there are burpees galore.
While I can't say I went completely without following the modifier, Tania, I did manage to try a few of the moves sans modifier, although I never got completely through without going back.
This workout was pretty confusing mostly because a lot of moves are done on the floor in a plank position. In that position, it's not the easier to look up at the screen. Also, a lot of the modifiers had me on my knees. I now have major rug burn on my knees. And I need to vacuum. Gross!
Tonight's workout had it's challenges. First off, I waiting until the evening to do it. I had to get grumpy at the fiance when he was feeling cuddly when I told him I needed to work out. If I didn't have a workout streak going, it would have been even more difficult (my perfectionist mind LOVES keeping workout streaks alive). Also, in addition to the right calf muscle that was tight starting yesterday, this morning my right shoulder decided it wanted to cramp up on me. It's moments like this when I feel old. (although I know there are older people who would read this and say, "Oh, you think YOU'RE old!")
This evening before my workout, I picked up my wedding dress today. I'm so excited, but it's also a reminder of why I really want to work out. I want to look super hot in my dress. I did buy a size that fits my body now, as I'm not wanting to create stress on myself with getting a smaller size and losing weight just to fit into the dress. Someone suggested that to me once, and I was like HELL NO, wedding planning is stressful enough as it is, why would I want to needlessly create more stress for myself. Mostly, I just want to be able to take the dress to the alteration lady and have her have to cut it way down. Now THAT would be awesome to me.
Tomorrow is a double workout day for me. In the morning I will be doing an ab workout with T25, and in the evening, I'm going to check out Fleet Feet Chicago South Loop's Chick's Night and run my 2nd workout in week 4 of my Couch 2 5K training.
