Doing More

Once again today’s focus was on lunges. (Oh, how I hate thee lunges, let me count the ways…). “Get low,” they said, “aim for maximum height on the jump lunges,” they said, “put some power behind it.” (Kick Rocks, I said!)  The squat holds, PLUS the squats with calf raises almost did a sista in! It was complete torture. I worked my way through the never-ending stars circling around my head, and I made it through to the end! When I finally hit the floor, gasping and panting for breath, Coach Mookie was there (he is on the sick & shut in list today) cheering me on. (You did it momma, good job.)  Then he gave me the thumbs up sign, sideways. (Good times people, good times!)

I wanted to do something extra today. Something quick and easy, so I followed up my workout on the EA Sports Active for the Wii with a quick 8 minute Cardio Dance workout off of the FIT TV on Xfinity. They called it a quick cardio blast that would work my entire body in my quest for cardio fitness. Umm they did not lie. That Kendra Kemerley worked it out in those 8 minutes. She got my heart pumping and I used every inch of my body in the workout.

Now that I have sweated out my perm, I must go hit the showers.

Peace!
