Is that a loofah?
September 6, 2013
Because its Friday – and really, who doesn’t need a little bit of ghost buster/gagnam style mashup to start their weekend off right?
Also of note this week
This insightful article about Vegans and B12 supplements.
I am two days into the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 dvd and 1 day into her killer buns and thighs workouts. Both sets had my muscles burning during the workout, but again, didn’t leave me overly fatigued afterwards. One of the things I enjoy about the format so far is that by repeating the workouts for a set of 7-10 days at a time, I can really gauge my increase in strength and endurance for the moves. Not to mention enjoying learning a few new moves to incorporate into my routine sans dvd workout. I also managed to sneak in another outside run where I shaved off some time from my slower run this past weekend. Going forward, I really want to complete all 30 days of each DVD, since I know consistency is key for any routine. But I’ve also been morphing my goals and ideas for what I want my next personal challenge to be. I’m hoping to maintain my running better than I have in my past, although I may not be looking at major distances right now, I firmly believe that running can be a good health maintenance workout.
Secondly, my friend is starting Insanity in the next few weeks and as a motivating factor, I offered up challenge that I would complete it at the same time. Anyone I know who has done it and based on reading about it, reviews etc say make it clear it is an intense workout, one which I’m looking forward to, but also nervous about. It’ll be a good exercise (no pun intended) in self-motivation and pushing myself to the max.
Thirdly, watching all of the insanity videos, etc – really makes me crave the non-fitness competition esque abs and nice toned muscles. I don’t expect to walk around looking like my stomach was chiseled out of marble, but the women in those videos are certainly something to aspire towards. This goal will require a careful look at my eating regiment and figuring out a way to incorporate some heavier lifting alongside the bodyweight style workouts of Insanity.

Enjoy your weekend friends! We are off to a fun little beer festival and looking forward to some time with family and friends.
