Feeling better after working out

Posted Dec 07 2010 9:57am

Thanks for all the tid-bits on some good ‘male’ gifts and glad to see everyone liking our favorite things :) And enjoying some peppermint macaroons!


Let’s play catch-up on the workouts shall we…

Sunday- did a quick 4-minute workout

Glorious like always

Mondaywe are a little behind on the bodyrock tv workouts ;)

We did the Sexy Supremacy Workout with a few changes. Since we do not have a dip station nor a sand bag… we had to come up with another exercises.

Here is what we did:

Set Gymboss Interval Timer for 24 rounds- 10 sec/40 sec intervals

1) 10 Mountain climbers and 1 push-up (counts as one rep)

L: 6, 6, 5.5, 5.5

M: 6, 6, 6, 6

2) Bent over fly

L: 29, 30, 31, 31

M: 29, 31, 31, 30

3) Forward/Backward lunges – left side

L: 23, 25, 24, 24

M: 23, 25, 23, 23

4) Forward/Backward lunges – right side

L: 20, 24, 21, 21

M: 20, 20, 20, 20

5) Half Push-ups (we did regular push-ups but just did not go all the way down like your normally would, move of a pulsing push-up)

L: 33, 32, 29, 26

M: 26, 28, 26, 26

6) Bicycle

L: 72, 70, 73, 70

M: 72, 70, 69, 70

We also did a mini challenge after the workout to push ourselves a little bit more. Did 30 supergirl push-ups in 3 minutes.

Overall an amazing whole body workout :) Though we ended up doing this workout right before dinner which is not our normal time to workout. We had several online and local orders to fulfill and we did not get up early enough to do our workout first thing in the morning ;)

And after running around all day Michelle was not motivated to workout. But I convinced her that we would feel better if we did some type of workout and that was true! We both felt great after the workout like we always do ;)

She is glad she did the workout with me!  Even though she said she did not feel like she really pushed herself as mush as she should, but was happy that she completed the workout!

Moving on to dinner…or post-workout meal

Heaven on a plate :)

As you can see we are enjoying our new avocado cream sauce and mixing it with all different greens and other veggies. Love easy, simple dinners!

Twins Question: How hard it is for you to motivate yourself to workout? Do you have that one thing that always works to get you to ‘MOVE’? Do you have a workout buddy to help motivate you?

If you were not mentally wanting to workout but you did, how do you feel afterwards? Are you proud.. you should be ;)

Till next time,

Lori
