How funny that the last time I posted it was May. Oh well. No trouble! I’ve been doing a firm rotation and I have been enjoying it. I like having a rotation without having to think about what workout to do. I am also going to try to incorporate horizontal conditioning. They are 20 minute workouts and good for your core.
Today I did Complete Aerobics & Weight Training with Emily. very enjoyable! I used 8 pounds for a lot of the heavy moves. and two pounds for the light weight arm work. I weigh around 140.

New Year’s Workouts

Started back into exercise on

Sunday – Cathe – Low Impact Challenge

Monday – Cathe – Classic Step

Tuesday – Cathe – Strength Max – Upper body premix and some of 4 day split low intensity step

Wednesday – Tracie Long – Lean out – Longevity Series

Thursday – Low Impact Challenge

I’ve been on vacation and have been trying to learn the challenging step work of low impact challenge….just for the heck of it. I’ve almost got it down. Strength Max made my upper body quite sore. It was the first time for me to do Tracie Long Lean Out. It started out great and then turned stupid. Maybe when I am more fit I can try it again. I just found it annoying because at the beginning of the workout Tracie Long says something about getting back in your groove ..however the workout is very challenging and you pretty much need to be IN YOUR GROOVE to get through it.

Oh well, I have two more of hers…from her “Reboot” series. I’ll see how those go sometime in the future. I’ve taken advantage of several sales (always good for a bargain) on Cathe’s site lately in addition to her new series XTrain….so no shortage of variety here!

This week I successfully woke up one morning and did a workout. I did 30 minute Kelly Coffey Meyer – Your Best Body. I like Kelly Coffey Meyer …she is encouraging and upbeat. I sometimes get stuck watching one of her crew “Sam” who I can tell is really not into it. Cracks me up. Anyway, 30 minutes is pretty short, but I wanted to just get into the habit of getting up and doing it. However, as you can see, I only managed one out of five days. At least I did it once! I’m scheduling Monday as my rest day since I work out pretty hard on the weekends. Also, I like to watch Homeland on Sunday night and it doesn’t start until 10:00pm….so Sunday is a relatively late night. So, I guess I can say I made it one out of four days! …that is 25%! I’ll try to increase it next week.

This weekend: Saturday I did Low Max (Cathe Friedrich) for the first time. I liked it! It has 7 sections containing periods of fun step and a challenge. It is tough and I didn’t make it through all 7 sections. I got a great deal on her ‘hardcore series’ last week during “Black Friday Deals” so I’m super psyched.

Sunday I did To the Max (Cathe Friedrich). I skipped the floor work but otherwise got through quite a bit of this. It is pretty tough and I was a sweaty mess from head to toe at the end. So that comes up to be about 46 minutes. It seemed like a hell of a lot longer. This is a workout that I can only do the weekends due to the fact that it is so tough. But I see progress from previous times I done this workout.
