Working It Thursday!
Boy, what a busy day. I hit the ground running today and finally have a chance to sit and rest. It was very busy at work all day – luckily I have had tons of energy lately. I really think the shakes are the the key. I love my morning Green Monster and cannot wait to order some Amazing Grass that Jenna has been talking about over at Eat, Live, Run . I am going to place my order this weekend.
Because of my very busy day I was not able to do my lunch time elliptical workout and lost a good 400-500 calorie burn. I knew tonight I really had to Bring It with my Kenpo X. It is not necessarily the hardest workout – you have to make it harder by going faster and more intense. I really pushed it during the “break” periods where we have to run in place, jump rope , jumping jacks and X jacks.. (basically high, slow, plyo jacks). I ended up burning 620 calories.
I also burned another 240 calories walking to the garden and working in it a bit before my workout. The poor garden is really water logged. The ground is wet and because the plants are so heavy they are all falling over. I had to play MacGyver tonight and figure out how to rig my plants to keep them upright. I went to the shed and found various sticks and an old tablecloth. Luckily I came prepared with my scissors so I cut up the table cloth to use to tie my cages to the fence.
That’s it for tonight. Tomorrow is weigh-in – and rest day! yippee
