How quickly is time going?! Especially right-now. This is super fast, I have to shower and go pick up my buddy, all in 50 mins, and I haven't a clue what I'm wearing yet with this unpredictable weather!!!!
Rest day yesterday. Well it was either Friday or Saturday, wasn't it? So I took Friday, as my arms were still killing me. Gots my workout in for Saturday first thing this morning. I didn't do the Kettlebell workout from my list just yet - as I think that's going to be a big one. So I chose an old skool BodyRock workout with Zuzanna. Jacked Up Chick. Looks like this~

I'M HERE CHECKING IN! CHECK IT OUT! (lol)
If you'd have known how I've felt all day, you know this blog means a lot. GOSH my arms have been SO SORE. Soooo so sore. I have not been this sore in... A long ouchie time! I thought some combat would loosen me up and get some oxygen to my muscles... But I'm thinking it helped to work my arms even more?..... lol.
I'M NOT COMPLAINING THOOOOUGH!!
It feels good to be this sore. My forearms feel fab, and tight!
Anyways - I very nearly took a rest day today. I felt I needed it. BUT - I hadn't planned a workout with arms so... I'm fine, right?! Work the legs girl!
So I was talking to my workout-class buddy today, she's also my workmate. She's also distantly related to me but that's too long a story to go into - lol. Well... I don't tell many people I know about BodyRock. Don't ask me why, I can be very paranoid and silly, and it's just something I don't share with 'anyone', lol. I told Jennie all about BodyRock today. I did a back log to Freddy & Zuzana (lol) and explained about this style of workout and yada yada yada. Anyways, long story short she checked out the site, and wanted to do something. So I told her I was doing Transform Your Booty and so many up a little thing for her to try with simply high knee's and squats involved - and also no proper timer.
So she's gonna let me know how that went - AND she also pushed me to do my workout too then, so happy days, I was motivated and pushed into doing it, hehe. It looked like this~
18R 10s rest 50s work
High Knee's - 80-82-81-82-80-82-80-81-73
Squats (Regular) - 16-17-16-16-17-16-17-17-17
Well I tell ya, simple it looks, I was SWEATING. And my arms loosened up nicely with my body being warm. They're slowly tightening back up again like.... haha. But I'm going for a bath now.
See ya tomorrow!

Yep, am still on it! :)
Checking in for Wednesday this morning - I was home at around 8:30pm from a Body Blitz class (Mainly Combo) and then did a 6min abs session to finish my night. I then had to eat and shower so needed to stay away from the computer, lol.
Arms were starting to feel the lovingfit.com workout yesterday... Then went to Body Blitz and warmed up, I was a bit knackered at first and was thinking I could do with a break... But then half way through the class, I have no idea where my energy came from but I was blasting through everything and the knees were super high on the high knee running, lol.
Toward the end, the instructor asked us if we prefered to go straight to the floor routines, or hit one more track?? And I was at the back and didn't think before saying "Yeah one more track! Why not?!" and the WHOLE class turned around to look at me and groan. LOL. Yeah, I'm not sure I was everyone's favourite person at that moment, ha.
I got home and I did have a BodyRock planned - but when I did my plan I wasn't sure whether I'd have a class on the Wednesday or the Thursday, so I swapped it around and did abs last night and keeping the BodyRock for tonight. I was zapped completely last night.
And speaking of being zapped completely, I have total arm death today, ha. Oh yes, SORE! I'll be resting those today though and my workout later is lower body - high knee's and squats so I should be fine.
Wondering whether I should be taking Friday as a rest day... Or save it until Saturday. Meh. I'm going to Birmingham early Saturday morning to pick up a part for my car... So doubt there'll be time for a workout - then I'll be shopping all day. And y'know, shopping with a friend can easily turn into a restaurant visit and then wine... So actually, yeah I'm probably best saving my rest day until Saturday.
Onto Thursday we go! (Does anyone else feel like it should be Friday RIGHTNOW?! lol)

Woah! Well the GOOD news is... I'M STILL ON BOARD! (lol)
And the BAD news? What bad news?! There is no bad news, woohoo!
Okay so my wrists are a little sore from all the wrist action in the workout I just did, but wow, I haven't sweated like that in a -long- time, and it felt absolutely amazing. I'm trembling and I have no more to give, ha, what's better than that?!
So I did a workout from lovingfit.com (Again, Thank YOU Nina!) called 'Rose Among Thorns'.
3 Rounds (2 parts in each round)
Part 1 : 6 rounds 15s rest, 1 min work)
-Oblique Staggered Pushups - 13-12-12
-Slow Pull Down - 6-6-4
-Scoop it Up (5kg) - 16-14-14
-Push-Back Pushups - 11-9-8
-Controlled Foldups - 14-14-12
-Incline Mountain Climbers - 30-32-33 (I did from stairs, as opposed to a wall.)
Part 2 : 6 x Slowly down Diamond Pushups
50 x Crab Toe Touches
2:24, 2:12, 2:21.
What a workout. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it was so so hard... I loved the variation of the pushups, the oblique staggered pushups were fun and the push-back pushups were so different, but good at the same time. Very enjoyable.
So today is a success. I have to go make my own crustless quiche now - to take in to work for my workmate and mine lunch. Phew!

Thanks for the idea and push Joanna! ;)
So day one has been a success. Thank gosh! I was thinking it was a bit of a mistake to plan a workout for myself after Zumba... As I don't get home until 8pm after the class... and that's late haha.
So my food was good - although I skipped breakfast. Purely by accident. That won't happen tomorrow. I think it's better than having a load of rubbish for brekkie though? :S
Lunch was a portion of Slimming World quiche that my work mate brought in for me. Fantastic!
Zumba was good fun. A good little sweat. And a laugh!
Got home and did as planned, ZWOW#7. It went like this.
3 Rounds of the following -
10 Jump Lunge + Side Kick
10 Supergirl Pushups
200 High Knees (Did without rope)
20 Oblique Twists
I completed 3 rounds in 12:18. I'm mega happy with that.
Time to sort out something to eat!
