I went to the gym yesterday for the first time since last Thursday. I got a late start leaving home and I had to meet a couple of my husbands friends for lunch. He had to be out of town and they were supposed to meet, he had worked with them for 30 years before he retired and took a new job. He had something I needed to take to them. They meet for breakfast or lunch every so often.
I had to speed through my workout so I wouldn't be late for lunch. I decided to just do a hard leg workout. I probably increased my reps too quickly. I haven't been really sore since I started back to working out two weeks ago. I thought I wasn't pushing myself hard enough . So, I pushed hard yesterday. I am really sore today. I feel really good though. I feel like I accomplished something.
This morning I was prepared to start my new workout at home. It is called KettleWorx. I looked at the CDs and decided I should stay away from something that did too much in the way of legs. I decided to do the CD for the core.
Believe it or not I liked the exercises, but the CD is not so great. It feels like the CD is skipping like an old record. There is a large repetition of the exercises, which wouldn't be too bad, the workouts are only twenty minutes. They were put together cheaply. Each time an exercise is repeated the same part if the tape is repeated. So you get to hear him say the exact same things over and over. At first I thought something was wrong with it, then I realized that's the way they made it. You have 3 CDs one for core, one for cardio, and one for resistance. Then each have 6 levels, it is supposed to be a six week workout. They tell you to do one on Monday, one on Wednesday and one on Friday. There are 3 additional CDs. An introductory workout explaining the program, with a sample workout. The others are Fast Abs and Fast Fat Burn.
It also includes a Fat Free in 42, which is a healthy eating guide to go along with the program.
I guess on the days that you do the regular twenty minute workout you can add a supplemental workout to go with it. Today since I was sore I just went with the Core workout alone.
I bought this program for $20.00 on a clearance table. If it gets me started on a routine workout for a while until I can figure out what else I wan to do it will be well worth the money.
Sounds like hot tub time this evening!!!
Oh yeah, I had a three hour lunch at Steak n Shake yesterday with my husbands friends. We caught up on old times, talked about genealogy research, which is my new thing, I have a couple of blogs on that too, and just had a really good time. They told me that I should start coming to eat with them instead of my husband.
Here are my genealogy blogs if anyone is interested. My mom's family and my dad's family.
