2/25/08 Log: Bounce with me

I didn’t get to sleep until midnight, but I got up at 5:15 AM anyway and did the lifting portion of my TT workout, which, as it turns out, was mostly chest and back, so I got to use my home bench set up. I subbed in my blue/heavy resistance bands for the face pulls and did bodyweight rows in lieu of wide grip cable rows, but overall, I was pleased with my first TT Ultimate Mass workout. I’ll do intervals tonight after work.

My team is STILL leading in the n-Space office fitness challenge, but I really want to step up my numbers these last 6 weeks. It is definitely time to go turbo now. I want to be within 2 lbs of 130-132 by the final company weigh-in on April 7.

Nutrition is on plan today so far, and I will not deviate from my clean foods. My second job for the next 6 weeks is to eat exactly what I have planned and nothing else…and complete all of my workouts. I call it a job, because if I just DO it, I will be pocketing $216 from the work challenge pot, and at least $500 from the TT contest. $716 will pay off my Camry completely once I throw in the leftover $2000 from our tax refund after DH pays for his new computer.

Workout plan for this week:
Mon: TT Ultimate Mass 1 + Intervals; Hip Hop Abs (HHA*)
Tue: TT Ultimate Mass 2 + Intervals; HHA
Wed: Inline skating or Elliptical; HHA
Thu: TT Ultimate Mass 3 + Intervals; HHA
Fri: TT Ultimate Mass 4 + Intervals; HHA
Sat: Inline skating or Forza; HHA
Sun: Rest

* I’m using Beachbody’s Hip Hop Abs program as bonus exercise and general recreation for the next 6 weeks along with inline skating. It’s part of my vow to stop doing cardio activities I loathe and replace the sit-on-my-ass TV time that has been building up over the winter with fun physical activities and productive hobbies like gardening and sewing. Besides, I’m also a dance reality show junkie, and I want to be able to bounce around on a dance floor with some modicum of conviction and style.

And having some actual dance moves will really improve my karaoke stage performances.
