working out

What do you like to do to keep in shape?

I have had a few conversations lately and am curious to know your favorite routines, HIITS, etc.

I like to switch it up.  I get bored with things like running (yes I did train for a half) and yoga, not because they are easy, because they certainly are not, but because my mind focuses on what I am doing and then I realize I am not enjoying it.

I like weight training  A LOT!  I tolerate running and elliptical because it is great cardio, but I entertain myself with music or tv of some sort.  I really enjoy HIIT routines, but with my aging body those routines often cause aching joints.  Jillian and Cassey Ho are my favorite videos…Jillian for longer and Cassey for shorter targeted areas.  I have also recently gotten into some dancing workout videos, which I am having a lot of fun with!

What do you like?  Let me know below.

 

day 17, 18, 19

Tuesday was not a great day in terms of food…I ate a lot!  (grimace).  I did an ab routine and a shoulder lifting workout, which were good, but not surely not enough to equal out my feasting.  I was quite active in my daily life, so hopefully that helped a bit.  Water was also not good.

Wednesday was better with the food, but still not ideal.  My healthy mindset slipped a bit, but is back today.  Again I was busy all day, so hopefully that helped.  I also did much better with water and exercise.  My am workout was 4+ miles on the elliptical.  My pm workout was P90X shoulders and P90X ab ripper.

Today…water intake is good so far.  Calories are good so far.  I am on track for 1200 calories.  A significant decrease is much needed and still healthy!  My am workout was a lifting routine for the back.  This evening I will either do elliptical or Jillian thighs or another high interval leg workout…it is a leg day.  🙂   I am posting now to help me keep this day healthy.  Will only post again on today if I don’t keep hold of these goals.

Be back tomorrow!  🙂
