This girl is on FIRE!!
Tuesday I went to the gym in the AM. I got 2 miles in in 17:25. Not horrible for my first run in I dont know how long.
I started off at 6.5 mph and listened to a song called Ya Mama (Push the Tempo). We do this song in RPM and it goes really super fast at some points which is GREAT for running intervals. And when I say intervals, I mean I started off at 6.5...then to 7.0...then at the really fast points up to 9.2! This song is 6 minutes long. And I did it twice. At one point I had to dial it down to a walk so I didnt 1. heave, 2. have a heart attack. But then I picked it back up again and finished the 2 miles out at 7.0 mph.
When I was done with that, I walked another mile while I waited for Eric to be done with his previous client.
And by then my legs and butt were screaming!
So we did upper body yesterday. We started off with chest presses. Then we did bent over rows. Then we did shoulder presses...then bicep curls...then seated tricept extensions...then bentover flys. Repeat that circuit three times.
Then we really got busy. LOL. Abs.
Exercise 1: Laid on the floor with knees bent, a dumbbell in each hand. Do a shoulder press, and while holding arms up in the air, crunch up, hold for 2 seconds, back down to floor and lower arms. Repeat.
Exercise 2: while holding onto dumbbells, go into plank position. Do a push up. Do a row on each side with your barbell. Return to plank. Hold for 5 seconds. Repeat.
Exercise 3: stationary hold of v-roll up. For like 20-30 seconds.
Repeat the circuit 3 times. Ouch-a-roo!!
Calories burned: 689 and my hands were S-H-A-K-I-N-G!!
The rest of the day my food was right on.
And by the time I went to bed last night my butt and legs hurt to touch. Not kidding.
So it was no surprise when I weighed 156.0 this morning. It definitely isnt from what I ate which means that there is probably some lactic acid build up along with more muscle being added on.
Fine by me!
Eric and I talked yesterday and decided that today would be a shoulder day for me at home.Originally I thought that I would do some Kinect Zumba Core as well but the way my legs feel today, I am not going to do that. If I do anything else, it will be some bicep work. Yesterday I was able to do 10 reps with 20 lb dumbbells. Not bad at all!! And my upper body really isnt that sore.
Oh yeah! Its official. I have a second Zumba class now on Mondays at 5:45. Woo hoo!! So now I will go from Zumba to working with Eric afterwards. Holy crap. My days are getting crazy!
Lets see my weekly workout schedule now:
Sunday: Rest Day
Monday: 5:45 Zumba teaching, 7pm Personal Training with Eric
Tuesday: 9:00am running for 30 minutes, 9:30 Personal Training with Eric
Wednesday: Workout at home...probably shoulders and some cardio, maybe a rest day if I need it
Thursday: 9am running/walking for 30 minutes, 9:30 Personal Training with Eric, 6:45 core work and walking 7:30 RPM extended addition
Friday: 4:30 core and calves and shoulders, 5:30 Zumba (non-teaching), 6:30 Zumba practice (if needed)
Saturday: 10:30 am Zumba teaching
Wow. Exciting! Plus I need to start studying for my Personal Training and Sports Fitness certifications too! Yup. I am taking the plunge! Very exciting! So that will be my evenings AFTER the gym.
So that is the news for now. I dont know that I need to go into what I am eating for the day. It isnt changing from what I normally eat with the exception of breakfast. It will be oatmeal and hard boiled eggs and not my protein pancake today. The rest is the usual.
I am meeting a trainer for coffee to just talk about working in the fitness profession. I feel like I am floundering a bit here and she has offered to talk to Maggie and I. After that I will be meeting to go over the school board presentation for next Monday and be video taped for it. And wouldnt you know that my fricken contact is acting up again! I dont know if it is scratching my eye or what but I need to see the Dr about it. I am not going to pay for contacts that continue to scratch my eye. AND it is a new contact. I just opened it two days ago. UGH.
Have a great day everyone!!
