Just Not Feeling It

Today has been a complete waste of a day. I’ve been loafing around. I had to force myself to workout at 3 today, because I had done absolutely nothing all day. Well, I read a book but for being active that I was definitely not.
I’ve been running around and doing some errands so that’ll help with my activity level today. And, well now it’s time for some baseball. Only 2 more games after this and then it’s playoff time.

I’m Going To Feel That Tomortow

I did day 2 of the Gamma Cycle, and well let’s just say Shaun T ain’t playing around when he says this cycle’s focus is strength.
Yikes! 3 of the 4 videos in this cycle use hand weights/resistance bands. And, well for all if you out there my strength is pretty crappy. Push-ups, yeah I’m doing them in a table top position, planks, well with the help if T25 I’m now able to hold a modified plank for a minute, but anyway you can see strength not my strong suit. Although, I have a feeling after this cycle I may be somewhat improved in that area.
However I was hurting today. I made it through the workout but my arms and shoulders were screaming at times, and I’m positive that tomorrow I’ll be feeling the affects of this latest round if Shaun T torture. But hey stronger fitter me I’m all for it.

Yoga With Someone New

On Thursday night I attended the outdoor yoga session along the river trail. Up until then I had only been to 8 yoga classes and all of them were taught by the same person. Liz is awesome and I love her classes and have developed an appreciation for yoga that I definitely did not have before attending her classes.
The Thursday night classes are being taught by a different instructor each week. This past week Sarah was our instructor. I enjoyed the class a lot but was a completely different style than that of Liz. Sarah’s style was definitely a lot more intense than Liz’s. We did a lot of poses that were challenging and would hold them for quite a while. Along with the challenging poses we were doing some serious balance poses. I need to work on my balance clearly after seeing how I performed those balance moves. Let’s just say balance was not with me on Thursday night.
It was a great class I was exhausted afterwards and work up a sweat I did. I know that I got a great workout in. It was also great to experience a completely different style of teaching yoga.
I attended class with Liz this morning as well. I’m going to have to find myself a yoga studio as soon as I get to VA because I am really enjoying this. So anyone in the Hampton Roads area of VA if you know of a good yoga studio be sure to let me know.

Beta Cycle Complete

Today was my last day of T25 Beta Cycle. What! What! Yes, I’ve done a T25 workout Monday through Friday for the last 10 weeks.
I’m super stoked about all that I’ve accomplished. There were definitely days where I thought I would never make it through the 25 minutes and days where I cried during those double day Fridays. But, I stuck with it pushed through and did it. I’m definitely stronger than I was at the start and my endurance is much higher. All of the work an sweat, there has been lots of sweat has been worth it.
Monday I’ll start the Gamma Cycle, and well I’m terrified. I mean some of the names are Speed 3.0, The Pyramid, and Extreme Circuit. Yikes!
I’ve yet to watch any of the videos but I’ll be checking them out this weekend. Which is either a good thing so it gives me an idea of what I’m in for, or it’s a terrible idea because I’ll see what I’m in for.
Here’s to a 4 week round of Gamma Cycle and an even stronger me.

A Little Of This A Little Of That

I started the day off with some T25 Beta Cycle. And, yes friends it still kicks my a$$. I enjoy it, and I can endure and get through anything for 25 minutes. I say that now, but ask me that question when I start the Gamma Cycle my answer may be different.
Tonight is the 2nd week of Outdoor Yoga along the river trail. So I’m making myself a late lunch early dinner so that I’m not famished by the time the class is over at 6:30. I’m excited and a little nervous about the class. This will be my first yoga class since I started with a different instructor. I really like Liz and her classes so it’ll be fun to see how Sarah teaches her class and how I feel about it after.
And, once my yoga class is over I’ll be sprinting out of there to head to some BASEBALL!!! It will be my first game in a month. The 2 weeks I was away were all home games so they have been on the road until tonight. I’m excited to see the Fish in action. I’ll be a few minutes late, but hey it’s a baseball game they last hours.
So as you can see it really is a day of a little of this and a little of that.
