Les Mills Pump Day 51

Les Mills Pump Workout: Hard Core Abs & Combat
Other: Walk/Run Interval – 30 minutes

It was another relaxing, yet busy day.  I spent the day doing schoolwork once again and some work stuff from home.  I finally ran my errands tonight but I didn’t make it out to the grocery store.  Before I left the house, I worked out to Hard Core Abs.  After I did my errands, I went to the gym to train for my 5K.  I’m just following the app on my phone and hopefully I’ll catch up to where I’m supposed to be before the race.  I went a a little faster during my run intervals.  I was going to leave it at that as far as working out.  I decided to workout to Combat as soon as I got home.  A part of me wanted to see how many calories I would burn during Combat.  I burned 464 calories in that 45 minute workout.  I was sweating a lot more tonight in both my running and Combat.  It could be that it was warmer outside today but I love that sweat!

Time to get some rest!  It’s another busy day tomorrow!  I have more schoolwork and I have to get ready for my event tomorrow night.  Oh and trying to fit in more errands and my workout on top of that.  Gotta love it : )

Les Mills Pump Day 46

Les Mills Pump Workout: Pump and Shred & Combat

Yes!  I went to bed earlier than the night before and woke up a little late but I stayed up.  The only problem was that I have been feeling super tired over the past couple of days.  Regardless of waking up late, I have been getting plenty of sleep.  All I have been wanting to do lay in my bed and sleep.  I did that for half of my day.  My eating habits have been the same too.  Maybe it’s the odd hours I’ve been going to bed?  I feel fine at the moment.  It was a bit hard getting through my workout to Pump and Shred this afternoon.  I woke up from a nap, which was not needed, and worked out.  My arms are still sore from Pump Revolution too.  To think of it, it all started after I did Pump Revolution.  Anyways, I pushed through the workout and modified my push ups and lunges.

I had one more workout to do earlier tonight at Fit Club.  I had a couple packets of the Energy and Endurance Formula from Beachbody.  It’s a pre-workout formula to help improve your energy, endurance, strength, and focus.  I mixed it with water on my way to Fit Club.  We worked out to Combat.  I definitely felt more energy during my workout and it helped me power through it.  It’s another supplement I’m thinking about getting now that I know it helps when I’m feeling tired.

It is nice to get my workout done earlier.  I can relax for the rest of the night.  Tomorrow will for sure be my errand and schoolwork day.  It is also my Mom’s Birthday tomorrow.  I want to make sure I get everything done before her Birthday dinner.  I’m going to bed as early as I can so I wake up as early as I can.

Les Mills Pump Day 45

Les Mills Pump Workout: Hard Core Abs & Combat

Day 45…sounds like the halfway point to me!  Is it just me or have the past couple of months gone fast?  Well, I went to bed super late again last night. I don’t know what my problem is lately!  On top of that I woke up early this morning, feel asleep again, and woke up the latest that I have woken up in a LONG time.  I need to turn off the TV and not look at my phone in bed.  When I finally woke up, I felt the soreness in my arms.  I expected it after last night’s workout to Pump Revolution.  No worries because I love that sore feeling.

I didn’t have an exciting day.  I spent my entire day at home doing some schoolwork.  The only time I went out was to go to the grocery store.  It was an extra day to let my foot heal more, which I think is almost there.  I just have to be careful with it.  I worked out to Hard Core Abs before I left the house and worked out to Combat when I got back.  Tomorrow should be more of a productive day full of errands, more schoolwork, and Fit Club.

Les Mills Pump Day 40

Les Mills Pump Workout: Combat

Another pound down this week!  I have lost 12 pounds since beginning Les Mills Pump on August 27th!  It’s always a great feeling to lose a pound and it helps keep me going since I have a ways to go.  Gotta love it when weight loss is done the right way-by eating healthy and exercising.  You don’t crave bad foods when you eat healthy foods.  Well last night was an exception because I don’t know why I wanted to eat unhealthy.  It happens here and there.

Do you know that feeling when you are so comfortable and warm in your bed and you don’t want to move especially since it’s cold outside?  Yup, I felt that way during the first part of my day.  It is nice to know that you don’t have to go anywhere and you can just relax.  I finally got out of bed to finish my homework that was due tonight.  As soon as I finished it, I took a break by working out to Combat.  Because it’s cold outside, my room is cold too.  Working out to Combat was the perfect way to warm up.  Not only did I warm up, but I was covered in sweat at the end.  My form is almost there and I am able to anticipate the next round of moves.  My foot is feeling much better today but I took one more day off to rest it.  I’m looking to resume my 5K training early tomorrow morning.

Have a great weekend and KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!

 

Les Mills Pump Day 36

Les Mills Pump Workout: Pump and Shred

Phase 2 of Les Mills Pump begins today!!!  I weighed myself this morning and I am down another pound!  That’s 11 pounds since beginning Les Mills Pump on August 27th.  I’m almost to my lowest weight in years again.  I know I can reach it by the end of this week.  Or I might even pass it which would be even better.

I went back to work after having five days off.  It went by quick and smoothly.  I didn’t do any walking because I had to stay at our kiosk and I’ll be there again tomorrow.  I worked out to Pump and Shred as soon as I got home.  I used the 10 pound plates during the Legs and Back track and I’ll stick with it from now on.  I do not enjoy push ups at all and I still have to stay on my knees because I’m not strong enough to do them yet.  And let alone doing them in intervals where The Rep Effect comes into play.  Of course, my least favorite track was the Legs track.  I dread doing lunges but they do shape the legs in one of the best ways.  As usual I was a sweating like a pig by the en.  Gotta love the sweat because it means you worked hard.

I pre-ordered Les Mills Combat today!  I’m super excited to get it when it arrives on December 24th!  It will be a Christmas present to myself.  I expect to finish Les Mills Pump by November 25th so I will do the 30-Day Les Mills Pump Ultimate Cross Training Hybrid Calendar after that.  It’ll be perfect timing because I decided to do Les Mills Combat once I receive it.  I don’t care if there’s Thanksgiving, my Birthday in December, Christmas, and New Years…I won’t overindulge and gain that Holiday weight.  I have worked too hard to gain it all back again.  If you would like to join me with Les Mills Combat, shoot me an email!  I am creating a separate post and page on info on how you can pre-order your own copy as well.

Time to get to bed and stop waking up late.  I need to learn how to get to bed earlier again.  I am going to start training for the Hot Chocolate 5K first thing tomorrow after I wake up.  It’s time to learn how to love running.

Les Mills Pump Day 35

Les Mills Pump Workout: Off Day

Hello hello!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am glad today was an off day from both working out and work.  It was a nice change.  I pretty much spent my day watching football and hanging out at my best friend’s house.  Today officially ends Phase 1 of Les Mills Pump for me and I begin Phase 2 tomorrow.  I can’t wait to incorporate Pump Revolution and Extreme next month!  This month sure went by fast.  Before I know it, I’ll be done with Les Mills Pump and onto Les Mills Combat…which I am pre-ordering tomorrow by the way.  I have decided that Les Mills Combat is my next program.  If there is anyone that would like to join me as I continue my weight loss journey in December, shoot me an email for more details.

Even though I’m starting Phase 2 tomorrow, I’m actually starting different phase in my life as well.  I am going to be on a break from working until the end of October since my jobs are seasonal.  I plan on finding another job for the Holidays too.  In the meantime I’m going to continue on improving myself when it comes to my health (of course), school, my business, and just overall personal development.  Different parts in my journey of being the best version of myself keeps growing.  It’s a scary feeling but I’m ready to challenge myself even more. It’s my time : )

Les Mills Pump Day 34

Les Mills Workout: Combat & Hard Core Abs

Ahhh…staying up late was not a good idea.  I could not get up and I wasn’t able to to my workout in first thing in the morning.  I got ready and went to the Team Beachbody Chicago Super Saturday event.  The special guests were CEO and founder of Beachbody, Carl Daikeler, and Regional Director, Arnauld Nakaha.  It was amazing to be a part of an event with 400 other Beachbody Coaches who have committed to get people healthy and fit and to end the trend of obesity.  I am helping to end the trend by starting with myself and I want to be able to help others do the same.  It’s always great to listen to Carl and Arnauld speak.  There were exciting announcements and new workout programs coming soon out from Beachbody.  So for my readers that are not with Beachbody and are interested in learning more, keep checking back on my site or contact me for more details!

Speaking of new programs, pre-orders start for Les Mills Combat this Monday, October 1st!  I definitely plan on ordering it and I’ll post a separate entry tomorrow with details on how you can pre-order before everyone else can.  In honor of the pre-release, I went ahead and did Combat in addition to Hard Core Abs in my workout tonight.  It’s 45 minutes long with tons of moves so I have improved in getting the moves down.  I love how much energy the trainers have throughout the workout and it helps keep me going because I was getting super tired.  They are the same trainers who take the lead in Les Mills Combat.  I was covered in sweat at the end of Combat.  I went straight into Hard Core Abs.  I swear the burn gets more intense as I do abs which is always a great sign.

I am looking very forward to a day off from working out AND work!  It’s been a couple weeks since I have been off from both.  Tomorrow also marks the end of Phase 1 of Les Mills Pump so I will be taking my measurements and pictures of my progress.
