I strapped on my knee brace last night in hopes of making it through a workout without pain. I had taken a break from the rigors of Hip Hop Abs in order to rest my bum knee. I have a show in February so I can’t afford to blow my knee out before then. Or any other time for that matter! So last night I needed to workout, I was craving it. It’s a beautiful sickness I think, feeling the need to work out. Without that “high” I get from sweating and burning calories I would surely weigh four times as much as I do now. I have a horrible sweet tooth and can not seem to pass up chocolate for anything. So it is essential I work out to counteract all the sugar I put in myself. I only did the Fat Burning Cardio Level 1 tonight. I could handle Shaun T’s pumped up attitude, although I am tired of hearing the same lines over and over again. I know it’s a recorded DVD but can’t I get some variety? Guess not. My knee behaved wonderfully the whole time and I barely felt a tiny twinge in it. I don’t have my new sneaks yet, it will be a couple of weeks before I can but them, but I’ll live till then I think. After that workout was over I did two circuits of a strength training workout that I got from this month’s Women’s Health. I love this magazine because all of their models are what I want to look like. Their bodies are always wet, shiny, and sleek looking. It’s probably body oil and lighting techniques but I love how they are all cut and strong. They have great workouts, no bull-crap eating plans, and really funny headlines to their stories. I wish I could someday work there! Tonight I will be ballroom dancing again, so I think I am only going to do the Ab Sculpt before I go. Will get some extra calorie burn in to counteract that Swiss White Chocolate bar I ate (ok- I admit it… I DID!!!). But I have my plan for a healthy dinner, so I think I will be all set.
