Boot Core Day 8

One of the trainers saw me at the gym yesterday morning. He seemed quite impressed that I was there on a day when I technically did not have to be there. I was on the arc trainer and he asked me how I was liking class. I told him I liked it a lot now that I am not longer sore. He said, "just wait until tomorrow when we do weights." Ugh. Well today wasn't too bad. We had 3 stations that we rotated through and alternated with cardio. The first station was dumbell presses on a stability ball and then sprints on the field. Next we did standing shoulder presses w/ variations. Cardio was jumping rope. Apparently I can jump rope pretty well and I was the envy of my trainer and the group. Who would have thought? Next station was lunge tricep kickback thing followed by squats and kicks. We did each station and cardio for about 3 minutes twice through. We finished off we a run down the street past the whole foods, Pei Wei, and Zoe's and up a flight of stairs and back to the Y.

After class I went to the gym where I was high fived by one of the trainers when I was walking in. As I was getting on the stairmaster the trainer from yesterday seemed really impressed that I came in for more cardio. If he only knew what I have been doing for the past 5 years... So yeah, I am starting to really like my new Y. In case you haven't noticed relationships are huge for me. I feel most comfortable when people know me.

I know I have a pretty crazy workout routine. But what about you? When do you workout? Where? Any favorite cardio routines or videos?

Holy crap, you're a freak!

I go when I am in the mood. Sometimes work is too overbearing and I wanna take a nap and won't go. Usually, when the sun is out and the weather is good, that's when I'll go. Right now, it's that kind of time.

The other thing is that going to the gym takes a lot of time when I have other things going on.

My deal is eating... that's what kills me.
