22 Minute Hard Corps: Week 1

Today is the day I fly home! I’m super excited to see my hubby, my kids, my pups, my turtle, and to sleep in my own bed! Getting my workout in was non negotiable because sitting on my bum for 6 hours on the plane today is going to kill my Fitbit step goal πŸ˜‰

Day 1:

Cardio 1 & P90X3 Yoga

I have to admit it was a little awkward doing my workout in front of everyone else working out in the hotel fitness center. It was great to be a sweaty beast and know that the results I am getting now are far better than the results I was getting running on the hamster wheel. I definitely missed Tony for the last 60 days ❀ I have to say that as much as I hate burpees, I love that they are numbered in this program. I think I push myself harder knowing that I have to hit 25 versus only having to do as many as I can in 45 seconds. Since I’ve become accustomed to the 30 minute workouts of Max:30 I decided to add some of Tony’s P90X3 yoga into the mix. Also waking up with a kink in my neck, it gave me some hope that maybe it would help that go away(it didn’t but it was worth a try.) I told myself I’d only do 10 minutes but I am so NOT flexible and it felt good to stretch. If you don’t use it you lose it and I’ve definitely lost a lot of the flexibility I had when I first completed P90X3.

Day 2:

Resistance 1 & Core 1

I was supposed to do Core 1 yesterday but since I got caught up in doing my yoga and was on the road without my calendar I decided to do it today. I decided to wear my weighted vest today too and boy howdy it’s intense. Resistance 1 had 5 moves, push ups, pull ups, squats with a thrust, lunges and sit ups with a punch(aka crunch punch, I think you should have named it that too Tony. πŸ˜‚) Of course there was a bonus round because you have to use all 22 minutes!

Day 3 & 4:

Cardio 1 & Resistance 1

So it’s Thursday and I’m doing yesterday and today’s workouts to get caught back up. I am pretty anal about staying with my schedule these days and not falling behind, yet I still skipped yesterday. I usually wake up earlier and get my workout in before we leave for anywhere but I over slept and I promised the boys we would get in the hot tub before bedtime. I know life is rough πŸ˜‚ But by the time we were done it was after 8 and I closed my eyes for a minute and was out. My body is still adjusting to being in Nashville for a week and not getting enough sleep. If I would have had to double a Max:30 workout I may have felt differently but 22 minutes times 2 isn’t that bad. Sure I was soaked and I didn’t have weights or a pull up bar but I got it done and I feel good about being right back on schedule. I was planning to get some yoga in yesterday but since I didn’t I think I’ll aim to do that tomorrow.

I could have said no to working out today since we were on “vacation.” I could have said, I don’t have a DVD player I can’t workout today but thanks to my handy dandy Beachbody OnDemand, that excuse wasn’t usable… PS I laid a towel on the ground so I didn’t have to lay on the floor of the hotel room during the ab work. (Yup, I’m a bit of a germophobe. Def won’t share my water bottle with you, and yes I know I’m weird. My husband tells me all the time.)

Day 5:

Cardio 2 & 10 minute run

Hello gorilla crawls! I did not miss those… BUTT my hind end and my legs need the work. I know that those are going to kick my bootay into shape! Sometimes I forget that cardio isn’t just running or cycling, it means you get your heart pumping and your lungs going too. With all of today’s moves they were definitely doing that.

Did I mention that I signed up for a Spartan Race??? Well this morning I did and I feel so good about it. That’s why I’ve decided to start incorporating running back into my routine. I know I’m a glutton for punishment. But I’m making sure to take training slow because I know that when I get excited, I tend to push myself into injury…

Rest Day πŸ™‚

Found this rock on our outdoor adventures today and it cracked me up so I had to share it with someone! πŸ˜‰

Day 7:

Resistance 1

Went to bed super early last night, I know I’m such an old lady going to bed early on a Saturday night. I needed the sleep though. Woke up to having a bible study with this hunk and a workout together! I’m super excited that he’s committing to killing 22MHC twice a week with me, crazy right? I think he’s been seeing(and enjoying) my results and is no longer a skeptic, my hard work is finally paying off. I couldn’t help but smile the entire workout, even the hard parts. I LOVE having a workout buddy, ask my kids, I bribe them every chance I get! Troy and I are both in agreeance on how we feel about push ups and pull ups, not our favorite moves. I have to give this guy props because he’s got degenerative disks in his back and has limited movement in his elbows from breaking both of them at once but he still powered through with minimal complaints, even if he doesn’t look super cheerful during our sweaty selfie ❀
