homemade workout makes for sore butt

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I had every intention of going to Zumba tonight but when I seen who was teaching it, I decided not to. With my regularly scheduled Thursday program off the table, I wasn't feeling to eager to workout. But as I sat and watched a second show on my DVR, I reminded myself that this was the same behavior that caused me to gain back the weight two years ago. So I went to the guest room closet and pulled out my emoticon emoticon and emoticon and began my homemade workout.

I began with kettle ball swing squats where you squat bringing the kettle over to the opposite side swinging it back to the starting side on your way up and then pressing overhead. I don't know how many I did in number but I know it was one Dancing with the Stars dance intro, dance and then critique. I then did some tricep and bicep work with free weights and then with resistance bands. I repeated everything again and then went on to core work. After 25-30 minutes of this I was sweating and my butt and hips were talking to me.

Before I began my homemade workout, I told Derrell that if I did not go to the gym, he had to make me do P90x. As soon as he came home he was Mr. Drill Sergeant telling me to get up. I told him that I worked out and he still made me do it. I am glad he did. I told him I would do the plyometrics dvd which is the hardest one (jump routines). I didn't finish it. I made it 33 minutes. I was exhausted and my butt, quads and hips were aching. But I am glad I did it. Even without going to the gym I managed to get in a good strength training and cardio set.

Two things before I go. Tuesday night Omaha had a crazy hail storm and I was out of town for work. When I seen ppl posting pics on FB of this hug hail, I immediately called home and asked Derrell if everything with the house was okay. He "checked" and said the house was fine. He forgot to look up

This is the skylight in our second floor guest bathroom. I only noticed it because I had to make a quick break and went to this bathroom because it was closer than the master bath. As I am sitting there, I noticed something reflecting of the rug. It is a big piece of fiber glass. I was thinking, where did this come from? And then I looked up. It was like flushing money down the toilet. I called the insurance company and they have ruled Omaha a "catastrophe area" because of the amount of claims coming in and so an adjuster will CALL in 3-5 business days to set an APPOINTMENT. Which could mean it will be weeks before it is actually repaired. Better go to Home Depot and get a tarp.

Lastly, my fiancé is a machine! We are part of this walking challenge and he is so competitive that he went to the gym and did the stairstepper for 85 minutes!!!! He did 9 miles on that thing and 144 flights! I would have collapsed.

Well have a good night Sparklers! It is time to start snoring!

    Keep up the great workouts! Bummer about the skylight. We lucked out, this time. A couple of years ago hail totaled my van! Tell Derrell good job, but don't overdo it!

    Great job on the homemade workout, and on going ahead and adding in the P90X.

    Sucks about the skylight. At least it wasn't something even worse.
