Rejuvenated

Today’s 44 went quickly but it was definitely effective.  I did fast feet (x8) straight into a tuck jump!

I’m a sweaty mess in the video because the demo was after my workout today!!!  Tuck jumps are always hard for me and the fast feet between really amped up my heart rate.  44 of these were no joke!!!

I did a new (to me) DVD today and loved it!!  It was one of the 10 Minute Solution workouts which I’ve always liked anyway – High Intensity Interval Training  (can you tell why I loved it?!).

The workout had 5, 10 minute segments:  HIIT 101, Upper Body HIIT, HIIT Explosion, Rock Bottom HIIT, Ab HIIT.  Each segment consisted of 8 exercises done 2x each (20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest), plus a very short warm-up, cool down.  This workout took about 55 minutes but it flew by!!!  And, I discovered a few new moves to try!

It is 10:00 am and I’m just now working on my post for today and it feels amazing!!!  Most days I’m up at 5:00 am and have my workout and daily post done by 7:20 (when I take Hunter to school) so that I can get moving on the rest of the day.

Today, the boys have a day off school (teacher work day) and Chris is off so I decided to give myself a day off, too!!!  

After yesterday I needed a day off!!!  In a 30 minute period late yesterday afternoon, I yelled at both Jordan and Chris (2 separate scenes).  The only reason Hunter escaped my tantrum throwing – he was lucky enough not to be home yet!!!

Today, I didn’t even get up until after 7:30!!!  Then, I actually putzed around a bit before I finally went down to workout (normally I am working out within about 10 minutes of getting up)!!

Happy Fun Friday!!!
