Substituting Yoga (again)

Well last night was supposed to be Yoga and I bailed on it! I hate yoga, mainly because of how LONG it takes to get through it! So, instead of the dreaded yoga I went on my bike... for just over 1 hour and burned 568 calories while listening to some great tunes on Bear's IPod and then Jeff and I got up real early this morning and did CardioX and burned another 391 calories! It was great fun and instead of 1 1/2 hours to burn 500 calories I burned 959!! Yeah me!

Now, what I don't understand is how people get up real early and do high impact cardio??? I mean without nutrition I am no good for anything! I get dizzy and do not commit 100% to the routine... biking is easier to do on an empty stomach so maybe tomorrow (if my legs are ok) I will get up and go for a bike ride to Hopetown... maybe :P

So, tonight is Legs and Back and then Kenpo on Saturday and rest day on Sunday... then one more week and we are on to recovery week for two weeks! We are going to mix up our cardio on the recovery weeks... we will aim to burn at least 3500 calories per week by biking and running rather than to do all the indoor cardio dvds... we will get it DONE!

Have a great day and BRING IT!
