Today’s workout was Cardio Power and Resistance. I think this workout is my least favorite out of everything so far. I think it’s because I feel like I suck at the log jumps in the warmup. Then, I have to do the moving pushups on my knees because my upper body is still lacking. I feel hungry all the time too it seems. Anyway, looking forward to Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs tomorrow!
Today was day 11 of the Insanity program. I was very thankful today was Cardio Recovery. It felt nice to stretch. I had a little whiney meow-y cat buddy though. Princess decided she wanted my attention during the entire workout and kept running in and out between my legs. Then as I was doing the leg lifts, she would swat at my feet. Silly cat.
Today was day 10 of Insanity. I was NOT feeling it at all this morning. Took me forever to get up. But, after I got on all my workout clothes and set up the x-box… I was determined to hit play. I love the drill challenges that the fitness app gives you on the x-box. They ALWAYS push me to either beat my previous scores or scores of other women my age. Today, I beat them all! I had to take a few small breaks doing the in-and-out abs and ski abs. I was actually proud of myself that I only needed one break during the third exercise of level 1 drills. I still do girly pushups though. I am getting stronger so next time I do the level 1 drills, I will do some on my toes. I was never good at pushups, but I am working on it!
Meant to post earlier, but I got my workout done earlier than I had anticipated. Pretty nice because it gave me more time to do what I wanted later. Today’s workout was Cardio Power & Resistance. Still had to take a few breaks during the v-pushups and the moving pushups. Even so, I am getting stronger though. I think anyway. I did the workout using the X-box One’s fitness app again and I was able to beat the challenges. I also beat my own average score.
After looking at several recipes for pineapple whip or “ice cream” I came across one in particular that seemed fairly easy to do. It turned out pretty darn good. Here’s the recipe:
2 cups frozen pineapple pieces
1/4 cup milk of choice (I used coconut milk)
2 tbsp sugar, stevia, or sugar substitute
1/16 tsp salt
Scant 1 tbsp lemon juice
Pretty simple…. blend until smooth.
We did have to add some skim milk to the mixture due to the blender being fairly old. It needed a little help to mix.
