moves

supposed to be yoga x and ab ripper x.
BUT there was a terrific storm and the electricity went out.
We did 10 minutes of the 90
minute routine and the backup battery for the computer went kaput! Too much juice.
We knew the ab ripper
routine and did it to the glowing light of the LED flashlight. Boy did I miss having a fan!

moves

Made up for the Yoga X tonight as the electricity was back on. I had THE WORST attitude
because I felt hungry and I knew I wouldn't be able to eat a nice meal after the workout
as it was already 7:45 when we went out to the studio to start. I didn't feel ready or into it and I was
super grumpy.
I don't think it's very yoga-like to shout out expletives as I go into downward dog.
Despite that, I didn't do that bad! Just couldn't get out of that negative frame of mind.

Figured I could have something like miso soup to satisfy my craving for a meal at a late hour....it worked.
I'll have to do that more often.

moves

ab ripper --- improvement? a little...but then again, I am recommended by the program to do this routine
directly after the difficult Legs and Back as well as 2 other times during the week so I do have
an advantage going at it fresh.

sweaty housework inside and out

kenpo ---- our fave workout....did really well I thought despite the hot and humid weather. We completely fogged up the windows
out there! Feeling much more coordinated now. :boxer:

Well, I feel pretty good I have to say--completed week 5 of this program....hot damn.

sounds good with the kenpo and the abs... make sure your getting enough water if your training in heat like that. also coffee and alcohol are really dehydrating so u need even more water than normal. it might make u feel better.

You are so right about the coffee and alcohol---they are very acidifying too.
I guess since I am not having my normal snacky treats all of the time
I am feeling a tad deprived and so coffee is a little vice I allow myself to
have.

The alcohol---ya, I had that wine the end of the day and made sure I had a tall glass of water
for each glass of wine...but I still ended up with a headache as I prob. depleted some minerals
and such. I was fine by my 6:30 am workout today tho w/some Emergen-C---

Coffee is actually really healthy, so don't feel guilty about it.

and was happily surprised that I could do 7!

Pike Presses
(5) 6

SideTri-Rises
(20) 22

Floor Flys
(10) 12

Two Twitch Speed Push-Ups
(12) 14 w/k

Y-Presses - 10lbs

Lying Tricep Extensions - 10lbs

One Arm Push-ups
(6) 10 w/k tho I'm not sure form was the same

Clap Push-ups

Did worse on:

Side to Side Push-ups

All other exercises I remained the same.

ALSO I danced hard from 11:15pm to around 1:30am. No joke. (well if you saw me, you might think I was funny!)

moves

well I completely ran out of time to do AB RIPPER routine yesterday: the thunderstorms delayed my departure from my work then
I rushed home to get ready for company. I was going to do it today, but I will let it be. Not feeling perfect in my gut today.

PLYOMETRICS---the "mother"" of workouts. Waited for M to get home and we started at 9:15 ish---it was a toughie. My left
leg is bothering me and the bulk of this workout has to do with squatting and jumping. UGH. Felt good to get that done!

[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]

meals

10:30 Fruit Salad (1/2 peach, 1/2 pear, pineapple, date, golden raisins, banana, shredded coconut)
11:30 1 1/2 cup shredded wheat cereal, unswtnd Almond Breeze, raw agave
12:00 1/2 Lara bar, handful nuts/seeds
1:00 2 cups org. black coffee
2:30 1 cup roasted root veggies
4:30 Big Org. Salad (arugula, radicchio, red cabbage, carrot, celery, radish, agave mustard dressing, sea salt, few soy nuts)
1 Soy Dog (microwaved), mustard, heal of sprouted bread loaf
1/2 tarelle
8:15 1/2 organic raw bar, 1/2 apple, Emergen-C packet w/water
(9:15 workout)
11:00 1-1 1/2 cup miso soup w/tofu, seaweed, and a couple sparse veggies,
handful seaweed rice crackers, glass of red wine, 1 veggie salad(same as earlier today, but 1/2 the size )

a lot of water
