Oh so sore...

Yesterday was a hard day but oh so good.

And today because of it, I am oh so sore!!

I mentioned yesterday that I did Plyometrics in the morning. I burned 574 calories from it.

Last night I went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the ARC trainer, 10 minutes stretching, 30 minute CXWorx, Body Flow, and then my coup de gras, RPM.

I have talked about CX and Body Flow before, but last night was my first time taking RPM since the spring launch. My legs hurt so bad and I sweated so much and I climbed so many hills and mountains and it was good! I will be adding RPM to my insane Tuesday workout schedule. It will be my hardest workout every week with about 4 hours of training.

 Last night at the gym I burned an incredible 1404 calories in 3 hrs 48 minutes at the gym. Crazy huh?
Total calorie burn for the day from exercise was 1978!! The year I was born. How funny is that?

After class was done, I talked to Eric who teaches the class and also will hopefully be my personal trainer come April/May. He totally encouraged me and was glad to see me in class but wants to make sure I am not over training. He said there is a very fine line and if I feel that I am getting sick more often, I am overtraining and need to cut back.

So I have decided that if I am picking up another class on Tuesday, something has to give one of the other days. Unfortunately as much as I like Body Pump, that is going to have to be the class I give up. At least for now. Pump just doesnt make sense because I weight train with P90X on Wed and then again on Friday and I dont need to be training the same body parts two to three days in a row. That will free up another night to be home with my family.

So my workout schedule (at least for the next week until the new gym schedule comes out) will be:
Monday: CX in the am at the gym, P90X pm at home, 15 minutes on elliptical at home
Tues: P90X in the am at home, ARC, CX, Flow and RPM in pm at the gym
Wed: P90X in the pm at home with 15 minutes (at least) on the elliptical
Thurs: P90X in the am at home, elliptical in the evening at home for an hour
Friday: P90X in the am at home, Zumba then CX in the pm at the gym
Sat: P90X preferably in the am at home
Sunday: rest.

That should help decrease the intensity level a bit.

This morning I was down another pound to 164.0. Whew! Can't believe it. I am now 9 lbs away from my UGW.

I did not sleep well at all last night so I am extra cranky and tired today. Both my boys are getting sick AGAIN and have bad coughs that wake them up in the middle of the night. Landry (the youngest) screams during the night from having a hard time breathing. Not a pleasant thing to constantly keep waking up to. So I will be resting while the boys nap today so I have the energy to work out tonight. This winter season has been so hard on my household for sickness. I dont know if it is due to the major fluctuations in temperature or what but it is really annoying.

Tip of the Day:


  1. 9 pounds away! I'm SOOOO proud of you!!!! xoxo

  2. Wow, you do so much exercise!! That's like a biggest loser style calorie burn!

    Well done on your loss as well! :) x

    1. Thanks so much! I try to make exercise a priority and right now it is a great stress relief which is another reason I work out so much!

  3. I heard that February is the sickest month of the year, so you're almost out of the woods! I can see where overtraining could make your immune system weak, so listen to the expert! Glad you're back in the swing of things!

    1. Hopefully Feb will be the end of the sickness. I just feel really sad because Friday is a pizza and dance fundraiser for my boys and I dont want them to be sick and miss it. :(

    2. I should say for their school...not for them. LOL

  4. I'm so sorry your boys are sick :( Almost four hours at the gym WOW! Get it girl!

    1. Thanks! It was a stressful day. LOL. The gym helps.
