ow I have pneumonia. This SUCKS!!!! I've been home for 2 weeks and no exercise. None. Zilch. Zero. Nada. The doctor also said I can't go back to exercising immediately. I have to take it easy for 2 weeks to a month. Nothing strenuous. This does suck.

I bought the new Leslie with the 10 minute workouts. I figure I can start with 10 minutes once I have the all clear. I have to work on getting my lung capacity back up to par. Once I'm up and going, I will be looking at increasing my cardio capacity.

Of course, I'll have to change my planned rotation but such is life.

My planned purchases over the next couple of months are:
21 Day Fix
New P90

On the fence
Body Beast

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.

Day 1

Monday, June 09, 2014

Miscalculated my time this morning. I did the Monday workout from Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan. I did not pay attention to the fact that it was 45 minutes when I set it up last night. Once I started, I had to finish. Needless to say, I was 30 minute late for work. Once I got home, I did Barre3 Burner which was 45 minutes. So a total of 90 minutes today. I did have to take some short rests but I pushed through and finished. I was dripping with sweat by the end and kept slipping on the mat. I will be buying a towel this week. No more slipping, darnit!!!

I have made sure to cue properly for tomorrow morning. So I will start my day with Leslie's exerciseTV 2 Mile with Barre3 Standing Slim tomorrow afternoon.

Tonight's dinner was chicken breast stuffed with spinach and pepper jack cheese with chile lime sweet corn sprinkled with feta cheese. The family has informed me this is a keeper.

Onward to day 2.

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.


Looking Forward

Sunday, June 08, 2014

Tomorrow starts my new rotation. I am looking forward to it. I can do anything for 28 days. That's how I'm taking it - 21 to 30 days at a time. My first rotation will be 28 days to great. I will review the workouts and the rotation after I'm done.

Of course food it a huge part of this whole thing. I plan my menu weekly and shop for what I need. Today for dinner we had Fish Pontchartrain over rice. Loads of veggies in the creamy wine sauce. Tomorrow - chicken breast stuffed with spinach and pepper jack cheese with oven roasted corn. Tuesday - baked spaghetti. Tuesday is also grocery shopping day :-).

My breakfasts and lunches consist of protein shakes and fruits and veggies. There are a couple of reasons for this - which I don't want to share at the moment.

Looking forward to day 1 tomorrow.

Remember, push yourself, you never know what you can accomplish.


Plan for the Rest of the Year

Thursday, June 05, 2014

Cardio/WaH – Daily – 30 minutes AM with a possible additional 30 minutes in the afternoon. Depending on what this scheduled for the afternoon. Should the afternoon workout consist of something longer than 30 minutes, adjustments will have to be made.

Barre3 – 28 days per the prescribed rotation - 28 Days to Great – Generally, these will run 30 – 60 minutes. Subbing of the other Barre3 workouts allowed.

Yoga – 1 week - 20 – 45 minutes of yoga in the evening.

21 Day Fix – 21 days – 25 – 30 minutes. Should time permit, will add 20 minutes of cardio or 20 minutes of yoga.

Yoga – 1 week – Same as above

Get Ripped – 30 days – Monday – Wednesday – Friday for 20 workouts. Tuesday - Thursday will consist of cardio and possibly yoga (20 Minute Makeover). Light cardio and yoga on weekends.

Yoga – 1 week – Same as above.

Mediation – Daily 10 -20 minutes before bedtime.

Missed days will be made up immediately on the following day.

Traveling will consist of cardio and yoga. Missed workouts in a rotation will be made up as soon as possible to stay on track. So from now on, where I go, Manduka goes!!

This is not set in concrete and will be subject to change. I may decide to do Get Ripped in place of Barre3 during the set time period on a whim.

This should take me to the month of October. Quite possibly somewhere around the second or third week, at that juncture, my random thought below will come into play.

Random thought – Decision needs to be made as to whether or not there will be a Buti or Hot Hula or Fe’ Fit rotation after above week of yoga. Maybe 30 days of WaH/BellyFit in the AM followed by Hot Hula in the PM.

Random thought 2 - From thanksgiving to new year's a possible cardio/YBB rotation. Things may be more hectic than usual with the parents retiring to the SC house. May require travel around this time of year. Best come to best, fall back on cardio and yoga :-).

Note to self: No beating your head against the wall should something not go perfectly.

Push, yourself, you never know what you will accomplish.
