Today was the first workout with both Couch to 5K (C25K) and Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (30DS). 30DS is killer for a 25 minute workout. Srsly. I was sweating up a storm. It was all dripping in my eyes, into my mouth. Gross, but true. I never knew jumping jacks could be such torture. The squats and lunges weren’t so bad. Probably because Debbie Siebers trained me well :). I need to up the weights in some exercises such as the chest fly’s and bicep curls. I didn’t feel any burn at all for those. As for C25K… that was gooood. It was tough, but I felt so energized afterward.
I tried some new foods today. My pre-workout snack was 1/2 a fuji apple and 1/2 a cinnamon roll Larabar. Nomnomnom. It gave me the energy I needed to push myself hard. The Larabar was surprisingly tasty for an energy bar. Plus it only had 6 ingredients (all pronounceable!): dates, walnuts, almonds, raisins, cinnamon, and cashews. After our workout, I had OIKOS blueberry yogurt sprinkled with some Kashi Honey Almond Flax cereal, 1/2 whole wheat english muffin w/ a slice of cheddar cheese and 1 egg. Filling and delicious For lunch, I’m having some leftovers I had from last night’s meal at “Whole Paycheck”. lol.
Good things: I “sweat-ed”… A LOT!
