A confession ((((blush))))

Ok, so I skipped the Zumba class yesterday because I was having trouble walking and wanted to save myself for my P90X since that is my program with priority. So Superwoman and I just hung out over lunch and we have planned on doing that Zumba today at lunch.

So, last night I was trying to figure out how I was going to manage my time. Mr. Wonderful had not done the Shoulders workout with me the night before because he was trying to recover a little, so I knew that he would want to get it done last night... and I was right. SO, he went first while I was putting the little ones to bed. I read a story to Buba and a week's worth of diary entries for Squeelie (she is reading Dear Dumb Diary) and met my Mr. WOnderful in our gym. I noticed that he had 35 minutes left and so I set the treadmill for 35 minutes and began my warm up... 2.5 miles and a nice calorie burn (details to follow). After my hubby was done his workout I began my yoga hell, I mean yoga bliss. I did the warm up and the stretch in my muscles were hurting but I knew that it meant that it would do me good... and it really did. Here comes the confession... after the warm up I skipped the vinyasa moves and only did the last hour of the program. I always burned out my brain and my muscles during those darn moves so I thought that I would begin with the balance moves and go back to the vinyasas. Turns out that I am pretty darn good at the last 2/3 of that program... and I was so proud and feeling so good that I did not go back to the beginning - I just walked away.

SO, here are my stats for last night's workouts:

Treadmill:

Calories: 433
Avg HR: 141
Max HR: 176

Yoga X:

Calories: 303
Avg HR: 109
Max HR: 140 ( I am sure this happened when I was trying to get in the crane position)

So... onward and upward I go, with some prednisone in my system to help me through - Legs and Back tonight + Ab Ripper X and Zumba on lunch... can't wait for weigh-in MOnday to see what has happened during this week.

Make it a great day!

Good for you for not overdoing it. I hear ya on yoga. It's hard to get through. But you did some and hey, that's great. Glad you are feeling better. Legs & Back had me sweating big time today and then I sucked at Ab Ripper. But oh well. It's so fun having you at the same place as me this time though!
