3 days in a row of AquaJogging ladies and gentlemen!! I can hardly believe it myself!
I am still really enjoying the no impact thing. I know my body thanks me so much after months and months of pounding it into the ground (boy we are harsh on ourselves, aren’t we?)
I did more interval training, alternating HARD (high cadence) with a short recovery.
THEN I decided to end my 4 mins in the water with me drowning doing Tabata AquaJogging. The lifeguards were looking at me with a worried look… don’t worry guys… I think I am fine..
Fun Fact #1— Whenever I am at a loss as to what workout to do, I choose an exercise and Tabata it. I have found you can Tabata ANYTHING.
Later at my apartment, I added in some leg workouts, curtsy of my favorite Workout-maker, Blonde Ponytail! (she is seriously awesome and is ALWAYS my go-to for workouts)
I did THIS leg workout of hers– I chose to Tabata ((20 sec on, 10 off) x8) each move for a 20min workout:
- 180* squats
- Reverse lunge with kick
- Lower body jacks
- Cross-back lunge with knee tuck
- Pulse squat jumps
To time it, I thought I was really really smart for Googling “Tabata Timer Online” and getting the easiest/best/BIGGEST timer ever. Me=Happy
I am catching the Christmas Spirit! This is much earlier in the year for me than normal… Most years it hits me around December 22 or so. “Oh Hey Christmas is around the corner!!! I better get the Spirit on!” But my boss in the office was playing Christmas carols yesterday morning and it TOTALLY did the trick!
She has on the most beautiful singing accapella group I have ever heard… Singing one of my Christmas Faves– Little Drummer Boy. Gets me every time!
Fun Fact #2— ANY time I hear pretty music (especially Live music) I tear up. Legit tear up… like they roll down my cheeks when I blink… Anyways, it most definitely happened with this group on the this song.
I am currently looking for the cheapest place to get my sister a Patagonia quarter snap sweater/sweater-shirt for Christmas! Any suggestion of a good online deal??
Have a Great Day!
