Today Peanut was showing her Nana how big she’s getting.
I really didn’t want to workout today. There is no excuse other than plain laziness. I did everything in my powerful to not workout. I made excuses, procrastinated, and every other thing I could to put off working out today. First excuse, Peanut let me sleep in. By the time I could have worked out, it was noon and too hot to workout without a fan. Second excuse, I had to leave for my in-laws right away because we were going to go to Blue Marsh (a lake to swim but the weather didn’t let us go). Third excuse, we didn’t get home until 5:30 and I had to make dinner. Fourth excuse, it was too hot and I had to wait for it to cool down. Fifth excuse, it’s 9pm and I’m too tired to workout. Sixth excuse, Hubby is going to bed. I can just do it tomorrow. I even went to bed with him but my conscience refused to let me. So I dragged myself out of bed at 11pm, put on my workout clothes, got myself plenty of water and gatorade and I worked out…
Boy, am I so glad I worked out today. I know I should have worked out much much much earlier today but it is better late than never. I feel so much better now! Day 49 consisted of the Warm-up 2, the Butt, Chest and Legs workout, the Back and Shoulders workout and the Sports Stretch. Double strength training day! It felt great though! I was sweating like crazy because it is hot (summer time), we don’t have any air conditioners and the fan was in the bedroom. It looked like I ran out into the rain. haha! The more you sweat, the better you detox! 😀 I used the 5lb weights during the Butt, Chest and Legs workout like I usually do. I didn’t think about changing them down to the 3 lb weights like I usually do for the Back and Shoulders. I made it 3/4ths of the way through before my shoulders were on fire and I had to switch them to the lower weight. I’ll be feeling it tomorrow! Well, today since it’s almost 1am. haha!
I passed the halfway point!!! Woohoo!
My hamstrings are super sore today from my workout yesterday. The Sports Stretch felt great at the end of my workout. Day 46 consisted of the Warm-up 2, the Back and Shoulders workout, the Cardio MMA Phase 2 and the Sports Stretch. The Back and Shoulders workout felt nice. It is still a challenging workout with the 3lbs weights. My arms feel like lead afterwards. The Cardio MMA felt refreshing. It is definitely not as intense as the Fat Blast I did yesterday. That was a killer. I loved it though. As I said the Sports Stretch felt amazing today. It felt so nice to stretch out. It really stretched my hamstrings and glutes. Boy, did I need it too! It was a great workout! Woohoo!
Sorry it took me so long to post these. This weekend was busy. I celebrated 5 years of dating my husband by going to the movies to see Man of Steel, got new glasses, cleaned, spent most of yesterday with family, ran errands, and I’m trying to learn more about soluble fiber. I’ll try to post more 🙂
I did my workout before getting ready for our date night. It was the first date night we had without anyone else. Just Hubby and I. It was really nice but I was very excited to see my Peanut after the movie. Anyways, day 41 consisted of the Warm-up 2, Ripped Abs and Arms, Cardio MMA Phase 2 and yoga. The Ripped Abs and Arms workout is still on the easier side but the abs workouts are much better this time than last month. The V sits are killer. My whole body shakes as I sit there awkwardly and pulse my arms. It’s so hard to do it the whole time… and I love it! My biggest issue with the last ab workout was the lack of a workout. My abs weren’t even sore before but they are now. I’m very glad because I want to work my abs hard. I had very strong abs before my pregnancy and I want strong abs again. I’ll get there. It just takes time. The Cardio MMA made me sweat and it was a nice workout. I am starting to like the yoga video more. I know it will take time and I have the time to give.
Double strength training day! I spent most of the day at my in-laws house so I didn’t get to do my workout until after Peanut’s bedtime. At least it made me me tired for bedtime. Day 42 consisted of the Warm-up 2, the Back and Shoulders workout, the Ripped Abs and Arms workout and the Sports Stretch. My arms really felt this workout. I have a hard enough time completing the Back and Shoulders by itself so it was a good challenge to complete both. Plus my abs were still a bit sore from the Ripped Abs and Arms workout yesterday. All in all it was a great workout 🙂
Rest day!!!! Today was a busy day filled with errands, a tired baby, lots of heat, board games and yummy chicken stir-fry. It was a wonderful day. I feel so blessed 🙂
This workout was nice workout. Day 39 consisted of the Warm-up 2, the Back & Shoulders workout, Cardio Booster (I did Zumba) and the Sports Stretch. The Back and Shoulders workout is still very challenging but I am not quite so sore from it the next day. Thankfully. Now I can pick up Peanut afterwards. haha! I doubled up my Zumba to get a better workout so I have more cardio this week. This is great since I feel as though I need more cardio in my week and it’s one of my weekly goals.
I am just LOVING the Sports Stretch. It feels amazing. Especially the move that stretches out the glutes. It feels amazing. Hubby was watching TV while I was working out and stretching. I said to him “I love this position. It feels good on my butt.” He started cracking up and making fun of me. I didn’t mean it in a perverted way but of course, that’s how he took it. It made us both crack up laughing.
Rest Day!!! I really wanted to do some extra cardio but I spent her nap time cleaning instead. We had friends coming over and I wanted the house to look extra clean. I also worked today.

Rest Day! Much needed rest day if you ask me. My knees have been sore so a rest day was much needed. Although I admit, I had some “accidental” exercise. haha! My team’s Relay for Life event started this evening and I walked 2.57 miles around the track. I had great fun and will be posting about it soon.
After the family and I woke up this morning, we got ready and headed to the Relay for Life event again. I walked 2.35 miles today as well. We were there for a few hours spending time with friends and family. I had a wonderful time! After we left Relay, we ran errands and did some of grocery shopping. I had a lot going on and honestly forgot all about my BeFit in 90 workout today. Thankfully, Hubby reminded me at 11:10pm that I didn’t do my workout for today. Better late than never!!! I changed into my workout clothes, pulled up youtube, and did my workout. I am so thankful for my hubby. He is so amazing and supportive of my workout goals! I love him so much!
Now on to the actual workout! Day 34 consisted of the Warm-up 2, the Six Pack Abs and Arms, the Cardio Booster (I did the Fat-Burning Cardio from the first set), and the Sports Stretch. I am really happy with the Six Pack Abs and Arms. I felt like the first Abs and Arms workout didn’t work the abs enough. Well, the second video really works them! My abs will be sore tomorrow! That’s for sure. I am happy about it too! I am working hard to be able to finish the first Cardio workout. I want to finish it before I start working on the second one. The mountain climbers and burpees are what really kill me. My stomach gets in the way of properly executing the mountain climbers and the up and down of the burpees makes me extremely dizzy. I hopefully both of these will get easier as I lose more weight. I can only hope.
I am just in love with the Sports Stretch. It feels so good and relaxing. I thought I loved the first stretch workout but it has nothing on this new one. I just love the way it stretches me. I’ve really needed it this week. My body has really been sore this week so this stretch was heavenly!
