Merry December 27th! Yesterday wasn’t much better of a “food day” for me, although the calories consumed were done so over a much more spread out period of time. Therefore, today’s boot camp “Ladder Workout” really hit the spot. The line up:
- In place sprints
- Lateral leaps
- Feet Flutters
- Horizontal Jacks
- Jumping Jacks
- Your choice (I chose burpees because I’m a glutton for punishment)
Each “round” goes for 30 seconds with a 30 second rest like so: Round 1 > Rest > Round 1 & 2 > Rest > Round 1, 2, & 3 > Rest, etc. until you get through all 8. WHEW! GREAT workout! My heart rate was up to 183 by Round 8. I definitely liked this workout better than the stations/rotational training we’ve done previously. Only 3 of us showed up for this great workout because we got 1 to 1.5 inches of snow over night (probably between 4am and 6am…prime boot camp time). I was so giddy for our first snow. Odd, since I’ve hated snow in the past. BUT since I only have a 5-10 minute drive no matter where I go these days it’s not so bad 🙂
I came home and the productivity bug bit me. By 8am I’ve swept & mopped my bathroom & kitchen floor and have done 2 loads of laundry (one of which is bedding). So there…2 chores that I hate the most: mopping & sheets. Although I still have to put the sheets back on the bed (which is the worst part of bedding laundry day).
It doesn’t make sense to vacuum or dust until I put the Christmas decorations away, so I’m rationalizing my temporary laziness. I’m technically not THAT lazy since I am watching some DVR’ed shows, which IS on my to-do list! HA! I still need to tackle 1-2 more things on my vacation to-do list to make sure I’m on track!
Breakfast post boot camp: half of a grapefruit, 1 featherbed roll w/sugar-free honey, and plain non-fat Greek yogurt w/frozen berries, almond butter granola & whole grain shredded wheat. YUMMMM! Breakfast is not complete without 2 massive cups of coffee (which is probably the equivalent of 4 cups of coffee).
No work = very minimal awkward moments. Life is good 🙂
