I’ve been telling Katie that I would participate “next week” for the last several weeks. Partially this was due to my ankle injury, but really, it’s because I was afraid to start hitting it hard again (due to fear of another injury). Now that I’ve gotten the OK from two chiropractors and a doctor, I’m officially back into it, and IT IS ON, like Donkey Kong (do the cool kids still say that???).
So remember Wednesday when I was all like, “Yeah, I’m super fit. But I need to lose a little weight.”
Well, come to find out, that was a LIE. I’m not as fit as I used to be, and I’m definitely not as fit as I could be. I got about 30 minutes into Jillian’s “Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism” — a DVD that I used to pull out on EASY days, and had to stop it. I’m hoping that’s a sign that this weight will peel off easier than in the past … we shall see!
So, my week starts on Sunday, in case you didn’t know that already. In fact, I’m such a nut about it that I once crossed out all the days of the week on a year’s worth of running logs and re-wrote the days in so it matched my schedule.
Sunday — 90 minutes of Hot Yoga at Ignite Yoga
Monday — Day 1 of this program from BodyBuilding.com, with 25 minutes of running for cardio + 30 minute walk over lunch
Tuesday — 30 minutes of Jillian’s “Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism”
Wednesday — Day 2 of this program from BodyBuilding.com — biking for 45 minutes
Thursday — Day 3 of this program from BodyBuilding.com (REST DAY!)
Friday (plan — doing after work) — Day 4 of this program from BodyBuilding.com with biking for cardio
