Well when I woke up this morning, I could hardly move & it was my first day back to work. I didn't want to get up & this in turn interferred with giving 90% to my kickbox session & QFC. So I today I paid the price of hard work & it felt great! So I get a meager workout in but I got one in all the same & I will count it all joy!
So today is the last day of my staycation & did I lie around & eat bonbons or call friends & complain about having to go to work tomorrow?! Nah, I enjoy my job for the most part but what I will miss most about being able to stay home all day. . . . .working out HARD!!
Just on impulse doing whatever I felt like doing for my workout that day & not worry that I had finish it up & get to work. . .No I worked with Cathe & she can be a beast!
This is my favorite DVD of hers. I also dig the Kick Punch & Crunch & Imax 3 which I can split into 30min workouts. That appeals to me when I need something quick but burns loads of calories!
I also got to do Jillian Michaels & she gets in there where Cathe didn't & Man, I just want to cry!!
But oh the from
completing these workouts!! I can have that cookie or very thin slice of pound cake & not feel like you I'm gaining weight just from looking! So if you kick butt today or worked hard, then get plenty of water!
We're having a heat wave here in Chicago so I have been indoors with my workouts. I got lots of walking yesterday before the heat was on but my mind started to wonder . . . . What do people do for workouts when it gets so hott? So what are your safe workouts during the heat that blazes 95+?
Have you ever had that feeling in your feet that says go & sit down but you are so busy that you can't? Well I have the feeling & their tingly but I have to log, blog & jog still! LOL So here's what they feel like right now:
No the guy in the picture didn't offer to massage them either! LOL So I'm on my way to a nice hot bath & slid into bed & close my mind & hope that my feet return to normal size!!
Have a Great Sunday People!
And take this bit of info with you:

Well, since joining Sparkpeople, I have tried to straighten up my act with the environment. I've tried reusing my plastic water bottles with everything from juice to milk. Well 2 months ago I caved in & I bought a Brita Water Pitcher cause I don't like the taste of my faucet water here in Chicago. Go figure. I didn't too much care for the taste of the first Brita filter.
So I still continued to drink my bottle water & combine it with the Brita water. Well I went to Target yesterday determined to have fresh water & bought a new Brita filter & WOW! The taste was like I was . . . .
over a fresh water fall! So fresh & I can drink it without mixing it with bottle water or crystal light! SO I got fresh water people!! If life is a sport, I'm gonna drink it dry!!
